Infra Red Detox Booth at Emporium Beauty

What are people using it for?

Eliminating body toxins is unarguably very important for long lasting health and it can be an exhausting exercise to choose the correct approach. So why not Refresh, De-stress, Revitalise and Detoxify and take some me time for yourself.

Infra Red Detoxification can be useful to:

  • Cleanse the body of accumulated toxins. The quicker metabolic rate causes extra toxic waste products to be purged from the body through the skin, during perspiration. The skin is often referred to as the 3rd kidney, because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating 30% of the body’s waste.
  • Helps to relieve pain by the Infra Red generated heat stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, speeding the healing of sprains and strains, thus relieving pain and reducing the time it takes the human body to recover from an injury
  • Rejuvenate your complexion and skin tone by increasing blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone and texture.
  • Assist weight management-Helps to contribute to cellulite and body-fat reduction assisting in weight loss. Infra Red Sauna heat therapy can aid in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in substantial caloric loss in a sauna heat session
  • Relax and de-stress after a hard day ” Give yourself some “me” time”
  • Relax tense and strained muscles, lowers lactic Acid levels in the muscles (the acid that causes pain after excessive exercise)
  • Release new energy and increase your energy levels. The sauna emits Far Infra Red energy that is absorbed by human cells, causing a physical phenomenon called “resonance”. Thus the cellular activities are instantly invigorated, resulting in a better blood circulation and an overall improved metabolism
  • Excellent for Heart patients, providing cardiovascular benefits without strain and creating a drop in diastolic blood pressure. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin, without heightening blood pressure
  • Enhance our immune system. By creating an “Artificial Fever”, Infra Red heat has a positive effect on the immune system. Often misunderstood, fever is a natural healing response of the body. The function of the immune system is increased naturally during a fever, while virus and bacterial growth is slowed, weakening its hold. This helps the body ward off invading organisms. An Infra Red heat treatment in the early stages of a cold or flu has been known to stop the disease before the symptoms occur.
  • Get back into shape and feel great, produces endorphins creating a natural feeling of wellbeing.

What’s the science behind it?

Far Infrared is a naturally occurring energy source that is emitted by every cell in the human body as well as the sun. Far infrared is even used in some humidicribs! When we use far infrared in The Detox Booth, it is able to penetrate the body up to 6cm and induce a strong sweat that draws chemicals and toxins out through the skin via sweat. The Detox Booth operates at a comfortable temperature of 25c to 60c.

A lot of people ask “what is the differences between a traditional Sauna and Infra Red Sauna”..

  • In the Infra Red Sauna , you will sweat 2-3 times more than a traditional sauna but at half the temperature. Now you can sweat away – whilst in a very comfortable and relaxing temperature
  • Traditional steam saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. Infra Red Saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, Infra Red Saunas heat the body directly. The result is deeper tissue penetration.
  • In the Infra Red Sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna.
  • Infra Red Saunas are safe for all ages.
  • The Infra Red Detox Booth is far more comfortable than a regular sauna ( your jewellery doesn’t heat up on you, the air isn’t stifling and your water in your water bottle stays cool)
