F.I.R Sauna

The power of the Far Infrared sauna!

As a naturopath of the 21st Century I am always on the lookout for techniques that can best serve my naturopathic clients. “Most people” dread the word detox; they put it in the too hard basket. It is time consuming and after all, who wants to get sick before their health gets better?

Almost fourteen years ago I discovered the Physiotherm Infrared Sauna whilst strolling through the Living Now Expo in Sydney. It impacted me immensely! It seemed so inviting for those cold winters day with its warmth, peacefulness, soft light and smell. It was the ultimate sensory experience for me. What could feel so fantastic and be so wonderfully healthy for me at the same time? All I needed to do was sit, read and relax. “Keep it simple” has always been my motto!

For thousands of years, dating back to the Ancient Tibetans, saunas have been part of the human experience. The most recent development in hyperthermia today is the Far Infrared Sauna (FIR). Being part of the sunlight spectrum, the far infrared (dry heat) induces sweating at a lower temperature than a conventional sauna (moist heat steam). So, especially for the heat-intolerant, it makes it much more comfortable. The FIR wavelength penetrates 1.5 inches below the skin to warm and stimulate the metabolism and circulation.

Other brands of Infrared Saunas are now on the market; the choices are endless. Unlike conventional saunas, this particular type of heat is a dry heat with no steam. It’s normally used at 35 – 45°C and permits normal breathing. The specific wavelength of this heat is a form of energy that warms your body in such a way that you will continue to feel the benefits long after your session has concluded.

Beginning as a complete novice, I have embarked on a journey and I now feel fully qualified to offer advice for anyone else considering profound detoxification. I have experimented and endured many hours at various levels of heat to find a daily routine that best suits me.

Some days my tolerance may be low and a 20 minute sauna will suffice. However, if we take the process of detox deeper over a period of months – even years – our bodies will respond with incredible compliance and ease.

Over a period of years, with increased water consumption the body can sweat out toxins and pollution from the environment — not to mention alcohol, tobacco, prescription medicines and illicit drugs. Nutritional supplementation is a great complement to thermotherapy. When we lose toxins through sweat, we naturally, also lose minerals, vitamins and electrolytes that need to be replaced. The FIR is an extremely effective way to detoxify, and is as enjoyable as reading a book in the sun…

What are people saying?

As a tradie my work day is physically demanding and tough on my body. Not only does Tanya tend to my injuries, allowing me to get back to work, she relaxes my mind and nourishes my spirit with her words of wisdom. I highly recommend her services.

I have been going to Tanya for remedial massage every month for many years now. It is a massage like no other - and I've had my share! I love the option of a private sauna before my massage - so lush! Tanya's brilliant massage techniques combined with the spa-like environment will keep me coming back forevermore. I highly recommend Tanya. Your mind, body and spirit will too.

After trying many massage therapists on the northern beaches, I found Tanya. Tanya is a professionally skilled therapist and takes excellent care of my health. Soothing music provides a relaxing atmosphere for deep tissue massage, targeted for those areas which need it most from running long distances and sitting in front of a computer for hours on end each day. Regular massage therapy has released muscle tightness, repaired muscles, de-stressed my body and put me in a great place to pursue the outdoor activities which I love. Tanya is simply the BEST!!

Tanya works differently to many other masseurs i have been to - she has a holistic approach in relation to the body and inner health rather than just muscles and bones. She is educational and interesting while massaging - I love the fact that i can always feel i am in good hands and that she looks after my insides as well as easing any aches on the outside. She is incredibly dedicated. Every time i lie on the table as soon as she walks in she puts her hands exactly where I feel they need to be - it appears to be intuitive and she knows how deep to go. i ike the fact that while she talks as soon as i go deeper she gets it and works with me exactly as i need. I could not recommend tanya highly enough.

Being given a pre-natal massage with Tanya a week prior to my due date was the best gift I could have wished for. It really touched me both physically and mentally, so much so that my waters broke that night. I can't wait to get back there and to feel that relaxed again.

I have suffered for many years from a severe excema-like skin condition, but have had a remarkable improvement after consultations with Tanya. Tanya helped me with dietary and lifestyle advice, colloidal mineral supplements and remedial massage! Many thanks Tanya!
