A number of studies have been done on the effects of far infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health problems such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis. While more in-depth medical studies need to be done in the West, there is evidence that far infrared saunas produce benefit in this area. Source:

Research in Japan and China suggests that far infrared saunas can improve blood circulation and strengthen the cardiovascular system. Case studies have shown that high blood pressure has been reduced as a result.

Waon Therapy has been successfully used in Japan since 1989 to treat chronic heart failure, peripheral arterial disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Fibromyalgia syndrome, chronic-pain related anger, mild depression and chronic fatigue syndrome. “Waon” means ‘soothing warmth that comfortably refreshes the mind and body’ and the lower temperature range of 60°C is used instead of the higher temperature ranges that induce sweating. Significant improvement was achieved with this therapy without any side effects. Source: Japanese Association of Medical Sciences, “Pleitropic Effect of Waon Therapy”, JMAJ 52(3): 191-193, 2009
In Germany, far infrared saunas are used as an adjunct to cancer therapy in many hospitals.

“A sauna used to be thought of as a luxury. Studies now confirm that diet and environmental chemicals cause 95% of cancers. Furthermore, as the first generation of man exposed to such an unprecedented plethora of daily chemicals, we have learned that stored or undetoxified chemicals can mimic any disease. ‘Incurable’ chronic diseases that were thought to have no known cause often disappear once toxic chemicals are gone. Since the far infrared sauna is the safest, most efficacious and economical way of depurating stored toxins, this makes it a household necessity”.
Excerpt from the book “Detoxify or Die” by Sherry A. Rogers

Far infrared saunas have been featured on the Oprah Show and Dr Oz. While the type or brand of the saunas may differ, the health-enhancing principles remain the same.

Results will vary from individual to individual. If you have a chronic health condition or any health issues, or if you have implants of any kind, please check with a medical professional before using the sauna. People with high blood pressure should avoid extreme temperatures in the sauna. Do not use the sauna if you are pregnant and do not put children in the sauna.
