Our Far Infrared sauna is a SaunaRay unit that was hand crafted in a toxin free factory in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. Unlike many of the current sauna alternatives, SaunaRay never uses cheaper materials that may contain formaldehyde, toxic glue, chemical fire retardants, plastic or fibre glass heaters. SaunaRay uses only natural and solid Ontario Basswood. The sauna is finished by hand, with pure Canadian Beeswax.

Research has shown many benefits using an infrared sauna:
Current medical literature now shows that heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium, along with complex chemicals such as pesticides, phthalates and BPA are more effectively removed via sweat than any other method of detoxification.
Far infrared systems can detoxify the body as much as seven times more effectively than standard sauna units because they produce heavy natural sweating that moves harmful elements out of the body quite quickly and mobilizes toxins by inducing a fat-based sweat
- Weight Loss:
Emerging science shows a fundamental shift in understanding the plague of obesity in our society. Many toxins love fat. They are called Lipo-philic toxins which means "fat loving". When toxins are present the endocrine system that regulates body metabolism can adjust to keep more fat on the body, in order to store harmful toxins. By sweating and thus removing heavy metals, plastic and pesticides, doctors have found that patients who could not easily lose weight will re-balance to a healthier weight in a short period.On the Oprah show in 2009, Dr. Mehmet Oz explained that infrared saunas could burn as many as 600 calories a session. Due to the high intensity continual heat of the infrared sauna, the body increases circulation and perspires. This is similar to the effects of exercise on the body.
Near infrared saunas effectively raise your core body temperature to help burn calories. Far infrared saunas stimulate your metabolism, lower cortisol levels and slightly raise HGH (human growth hormone) to help with weight loss as well.

Leading Fibromyalgia specialists have long relied on Sauna Ray's non-toxic construction to help their patients abate the debilitating symptoms of this disorder. Once the patient starts to sweat regularly they notice their health improves and their symptoms are reduced within weeks.
- Skin Rejuvenation:
One of the most exciting benefits of using a sauna is the glowing skin you’ll witness after just a few sessions. Two basic things have to happen in order to rejuvenate the skin – improving the body’s circulation and eliminating toxins from the pores of the skin. Saunas, especially those using infrared technology, accomplish both of these. A near infrared system will effectively improve the topical surface of the skin, while the far infrared units help to promote toxin release through profuse sweating. Most sauna users will find that the sweating component helps to cleanse the skinquite effectively, thereby improving skin tone from the inside out.
Psoriasis is a condition of the liver where certain toxins are not fully metabolized, and they are sent to the skin for future elimination via sweat. If you don't sweat, then the skin over-produces cells creating dry dead skin and concentrates toxins on the skin producing an itchy or burning sensation. If you do sweat, discomfort decreases substantially and there is a less likely need for creams, pills or other methods to control the symptoms. People using an infrared sauna for psoriasis have reported dramatic improvement within weeks.
Asthma is increasing in our society and is often coupled with arthritis or eczema as multiple symptoms. All of them can be symptoms of toxic accumulation in the body. The Medical Journal Clinical Ecology has reported Asthma can be relieved by employing sweat therapy on the patient. SaunaRay customers with Asthma have reported remarkable recoveries with many getting off their medications entirely. Our uniquely designed medical grade sauna operates at comfortably low temperatures and are safe for people with asthma.
- Blood Pressure:
Doctors have reported that the calming effect of the gentle far infrared heaters is credited with normalizing blood pressure almost instantly in some patients. For longer term re-balancing of blood pressure, regular sessions that detoxify the patient from accumulated toxic metals and complex chemicals have helped some patients to lower their dose of blood pressure medication and even get off their meds entirely - always under consultation with their doctor.
Children diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum often have difficulty detoxing heavy metals. Science has shown they do not excrete the samequantities of mercury as children without Autism.Whether this is the cause of their condition, or a symptom is still unknown. Parents caring for children with ASD have found SaunaRay sessions to be helpful both with the overall health of their child and assists with behavioural issues
