A low body temperature is a contributor and indicator of many health problems, such as: fatigue, headaches, migraines, PMS, easy weight gain, depression, irritability, fluid retention, anxiety and panic attacks, thyroid disorder, hair loss, poor memory, poor concentration, low sex drive, unhealthy nails, dry skin and hair, cold intolerance, heat intolerance, low motivation, low ambition, insomnia, allergies, acne, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, odd swallowing sensations, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, muscle and joint aches, slow healing, sweating abnormalities, Raynaud’s Phenomenon, itchiness, irregular periods, easy bruising, ringing of the ears, flushing, bad breath, dry eyes / blurred vision, and more.

Thermotherapy can be used complementary to conventional medicine.

Persons with a pacemaker or heart condition and those sensitive to detoxification methods should use low temperatures.

Thermotherapy should begin in 15 minute increments or less and gradually be increased as individual tolerances and preferences vary.

Please drink plenty of water prior to and after session and dress in clean and comfortable cotton clothing. Synthetic fibers block negative ions and cause the body to reabsorb toxins that may be sweat out during the session.

Please do not bring electronic devices into room as they may interfere with equipment functioning properly.

Note:  If you have considered Infrared Saunas for detoxification, pain management, or other ailments, but are sensitive to the intense heat or closed in heat, please ask us how thermotherapy can help you.
