About This Service
At Origin Wellness we have two different services that use far infrared radiation to help promote circulation and detoxification: our personal Infrared Sauna and Thermal Relax. The benefits of specific far infrared waves can be seen in their effects: relaxed muscles, boost in general metabolism, detoxification at the cellular level, and the reduction of fatty deposits, which helps sculpt the body. Far infrared treatments are also ideal for athletes, after an intense day at work, or in conjunction with the work of various therapists (doctor, physiotherapist, osteopath, naturopath, nutritionist, massage therapist, fascia therapist, etc.). They are also highly recommended as accompaniments to weight loss programs.
Far infrared is renowned for its vital actions. It is generated inside mattresses by a weak electric current inducing far infrared radiation from tiny crystals. The wavelength emitted in our systems is between 4 and 12 microns, easily absorbed by the human body, which is thus very delicately stimulated from within in contrast to a traditional steam sauna. The radiation produced by the far infrared mattress does not include ultra-violet radiation, and the risks of overexposure are eliminated due to the precise digital control of time and temperature, with the system automatically shutting off at the end of the session.
Our personal infrared sauna uses the latest innovations in the sauna world. A high quality infrared dome provides a weak electric current passing through a variety of materials and semi-precious stones: tourmaline, germanite, and jade. The temperature is set around 65˚C/150˚F, so it can energize the body, quickly reaching 4 to 5cm in the body. The 3 heating zones of the infrared dome provide 360 degree coverage and allow you to sweat without being inconvenienced. The head remains outside the dome, so it is not exposed, an advantage over a whole-body infrared sauna. The infrared dome is an ideal place to promote fat and weight loss, and helps with overall detoxification.
