The Many Benefits of the Infrared Sauna

The Many Benefits of the Infrared Sauna

The MacDonald’s Wellness Center is proud to provide sauna sessions with the Sunlighten® InfraRed Sauna.

This sauna is getting more attention lately from mainstream media and medical experts like Dr.s Mehmet Oz and Dr. Mark Hyman, and for good reason.

New science from ancient methods shows that simply sitting in this sauna can help persons to lose weight, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, enhance body detoxification and experience improvement in pain.

This sauna combines the benefits of heat therapy and latest advances of infrared light infusion. The Sunlighten® sauna offers near, medium and far infrared light spectrum.

Near infrared rays (NIR) have the shortest infrared wavelength. When delivered to the body, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing and tissue growth. The sauna’s LED’s can trigger natural photo-biochemical reactions, similar to plants using chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue. The pulses of this NIR has research to prove activation of DNA replication and improve the action of ATP (the energy maker of the body)

Mid infrared (MIR) offers a longer wavelength penetrating deeper into the body to address soft tissue inflammation, and speed up healing processes. MIR helps expand blood vessels and increases circulation so more oxygen can reach injured areas of the body. This reduces pain and speeds the healing process.

Far infrared (FIR) reaches deepest into the body, where toxins may be stored. The manufacturer states “Because far infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction & weight loss, burning up to 600 calories in one 40-minute session!”

This amazing sauna has pre-programmed settings for Cardio, Detoxification, Pain Relief, Relaxation, Weight Loss, Anti-aging, and of course Custom settings available. Speak with a representative at the wellness center to help you decide which program works best for you.

MacDonald’s Wellness Center offers introductory sessions at a discount as has “multi-pack” options for several session purchases.

Enhance Your Lymph System, Enhance Your Life

Enhance Your Lymph System, Enhance Your Life

There are many ways to help keep your body cleaning out metabolic waste and impurities. One great way to support the body’s natural “garbage man” (aka lymph system) is to take a session with the Revive Cleanse® Ionic Detox Foot Bath.

The MacDonald’s Wellness Center offers this superb service to enhance your healthy life choices. The manufacturer shares this important information:

“The Revive Cleanse PRO Ionic Foot Detox system can be an effective addition to your detoxification routine.

The Revive Cleanse PRO System generates a safe bio-charge in the water that is friendly with living matter. This bio-charge can support in re-balancing your energy heights and calibrate your energy field. This re-balancing act can, in turn, help immensely to improve a vast number of your body functions. The Revive System Ionic Foot Detox has been reported by patients in our clinical studies to reduce the symptoms of Lyme disease.

The Revive Cleanse PRO Ionic Foot Detox performs by ionizing warm salt water with interchanging divergences as you breathe stress-free and enjoy the sense of health that originates individually from soaking and cleaning your feet.

While your feet cleanse, toxins can come out of your body. These toxins can get accumulated in the body due to eating habits, primarily the constant intake of junk foods and saturated fats. We can also inhale other toxins through air pollution, and they can accumulate in the body with lack of exercise and sedentary lifestyle.”

The detox foot bath session can be received on it’s own or can be combined with a relaxing foot reflexology session. Introductory discounted sessions are available as are “multi-pack” sessions for those who wish to benefit from multiple baths.
