What is Infrared?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum that has the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a wealth of health benefits. It is naturally occurring from the sun. The high infrared power of the mPulse Believe is proven 99% efficient across all 3 wavelengths. What does this mean? With the optimal infrared output achieved from each wavelength, you will receive the maximum health benefits possible that enable you to reach your health goals, faster! Advanced Near infrared LEDs for cell health and skin rejuvenation. Mid infrared for pain relief and weight loss. Far infrared for detoxification and blood pressure reduction We provide towels, spa wraps and wash clothes for your convenience. You are welcome to utilize our sauna before or after your scheduled service. All sauna sessions last between 30-45 minutes depending on which setting you choose.
Willow Day Spa has the mPulse Believe and it offers a variety of programs at your fingertips, it’s like having a personal trainer at the push of a button! Each session perfectly blends the Near, Mid and Far infrared wavelengths and produces the benefit you need. Customize your session for a personal sauna experience or choose from one of the pre-set options: cardio, detoxification, pain relief, relaxation, weight loss and skin health.
Cardio/Lower Blood Pressure
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows that using an infrared sauna a couple of times a week lowers blood pressure.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Far infrared sauna benefits the body by heating it directly, causing a rise in core temperature and resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Near infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface and improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
Infrared heat penetrates tissues, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia. Pain-management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Unlike traditional saunas, which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna helps you relax while inducing an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Anti-Aging & Skin Purification
The near infrared wavelength (sometimes referred to as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevent infection.
Studies have shown that an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use — especially in the mid infrared range — can significantly stimulate blood flow, up to twice the normal rate.
