Sitting in a sauna is more efficient at cleansing the body with heat than ironing one's skin or trying to nap on a George Foreman grill. Walk into therapeutic vapours with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five 20-minute infrared sauna treatments at Body Kneads Massage & Wellness Centre in Leamington (a $50 value).
Body Kneads specializes in wringing unhealthiness from minds and bodies with massage and alternative health therapies, including far-infrared radiant heat, or FIR, sauna therapy. A naturally occurring form of light, far infrared penetrates 2 to 3 inches into the body, where it converts to heat, much like natural sunlight but without the harmful effects of UV radiation or the risk of farmers' tan. Unlike traditional saunas, the FIR sauna directly heats the body from within instead of raising the outer air temperature, resulting in a deeper level of heating. It also can create a more comfortable sauna experience, as the lack of humidity can make breathing easier and maintains a cleaner environment. FIR sauna therapy is believed to have many health benefits, including improved circulation, detoxification through sweating, and conditioning the body for volcano expeditions. Participants may wear whatever they feel most comfortable in, from bathing suits to jodhpurs, and may relax with music or reading material.
