A Sauna a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
New sauna technology has proven much more effective for cleansing the body than the traditional sweat lodges of the past.

The most recent full spectrum infrared technology has also led to an increase in research and benefits beyond increasing circulation, lowering blood pressure and assisting with detoxification.

Infrared sauna therapy also has been proven to assist in weight loss, decreasing pain, rejuvenating skin and healing skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and eczema.

For example, a single infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories. Researches have been tracking the incredible results of using infrared therapy on lower back and upper body pain.

Special guest, Connie Zack, shares eye-opening information surrounding this new sauna technology, as well as how you can benefit from sauna treatments.
