| Feel better, get relief from pain, lose weight, enjoy better circulation and lower blood pressure, purify your skin and body with a session
in Herbs For Life's Personal Infrared Sauna.
Our body needs natural sunlight to live. Natural sunlight is broken into seven distinct colors, and each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration.
If there is an imbalance in these colors within our bodies, it can manifest itself in mental or physical distress. An imbalance in these colors and frequencies
will create physical symptoms that you will notice!
CHROMOTHERAPY is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Chromotherapy works on various
energy points to help your body re-establish its natural balance. It accomplishes the via the full spectrum of visible light, each color of which addresses a
separate bodily need.
The Infrared Sauna at Herbs For Life in Dunkirk, NY has been custom built with these lights for additional healing benefit!
Infrared Sauna Session Details
Detoxification from an Infrared Sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and
97% water. In a Sunlight Sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!
Now you can enjoy the benefits of the sauna at a fraction of the cost. Discounts are available for multiple sessions when prepaid in advance.

SAUNAS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS
Drinking an electrolyte replacement water or sports drink is strongly recommended before and after sauna use. Infrared saunas creating a cure for or treating any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred.
If any of the items listed below apply to you, be certain to consult with your physician before using an infrared sauna.
Saunas & Medications
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
Saunas & Children
The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
Saunas & The Elderly
The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. When using with the elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
Saunas & Cardiovascular Conditions
Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension / hypo tension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
Saunas & Alcohol / Alcohol Abuse
Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress.
Saunas & Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability To Sweat Or Perspire
Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.
Saunas & Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To Bleeding
The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
Saunas & Fever
An individual who has a fever should not use an infrared sauna until the fever subsides.
Saunas & Insensitivity to Heat
An individual with insensitivity to heat should not use an infrared sauna.
Saunas & Pregnancy
Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.
Saunas & Menstruation
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow.
Saunas & Joint Injury
If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Saunas & Implants
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.
Saunas & Pacemakers / Defibrillators
The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
In the rare event that you experience pain and/or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
