Treatments at our private clinic in Grays, Essex
Scientific studies have shown that a 30 minute session in an infrared sauna can result in the loss of toxins and stored fats in the body by up to six times the level a traditional sauna, or exercise alone, can achieve.
This is because an infrared sauna uses far infrared radiant heat which directly heats the user, unlike traditional saunas which use steam to heat the air, and thereby the user.
At Lavender Rooms, our therapy room houses a 2 seater far infrared sauna offering the most discreet, private and relaxing customer experience, incorporating the highest quality technology and outstanding standards of hygiene, comfort and care.

1FAR Infrared Sauna Health Benefits

What if all a person had to do to receive such benefits was relax and sit down for 15 to 30 minutes a day, three or four times a week, listening to music, reading a book, watching TV or talking on the phone - now what would that be worth?
2Cellulite & Fats
Infrared is the only heat that penetrates deep enough into the tissues of the body to melt away cellulite and fats and the unique light wavelengths act to break down dangerous toxins and acids in the body. Compared to a session in a traditional sauna, you can perspire up to three times more, resulting in these fragmented impurities being safely eliminated by the body through perspiration. An excellent way to detox the full body, an added health benefit of using an infrared sauna is weight loss. Your body will use up to 1000 calories in just 45 comfortable minutes.

5What the Experts say
The Far Infrared sauna is the safest, most efficient and economical way of eliminating stored toxins, making it a household necessity. I am convinced that the Far Infrared sauna is something that everyone should incorporate into their lifestyle to restore health. The Far Infrared sauna is far safer and more tolerable than a conventional sauna because it uses a heat energy that penetrates into tissues, triggering mobilization of chemicals from fat storage, directly into the sweat. (Sherry A. Rogers, M.D. Centre for Environmental Medicine)
It has become well known that people who take regular saunas (2-3 per week) reduce their incidence of colds and influenza by over 65% (a study by the British Medical Association). While many people use saunas primarily for relaxation and stress reduction, the other health benefits are increasing the popularity of saunas. The reduction and removal of body toxins through the sweating process is becoming a highly regarded benefit of the sauna. Hundreds of years ago, people discovered and turned to heat therapy as a source of natural healing for many illnesses and discomforts. Far Infrared saunas are growing in popularity and are naturally rising to the top of health regime requirements.
7Keep your heart healthy
Far Infrared saunas have a stimulating effect on the cardiovascular system. As you perspire, your heart works harder to pump blood through your body. A 30-minute session in an infrared sauna is equivalent to walking or jogging for 10 to 15 kilometres. Take advantage of these amazing benefits without leaving the relaxing warmth of your own spa, and without any dangerous impact on your joints. The sauna also increases heart rate and blood circulation, both crucial to maintaining health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin without heightening blood pressure. It is a great means of exercise for those who cannot physically exert themselves.
8Boost your immune system
Combat the effects of daily stress and wake up your immune system. Deep radiant infrared heat results in a rising of your body’s temperature, identical to the body's defence mechanism against bacteria, microbes, and infection. The beneficial side effect of this induced temperature increase is immune system improvement resulting from increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by your bone marrow and killer T-cells by your thymus. When toxins are present in our body blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. The body’s immune system is inhibited, which makes it difficult for the body to fight disease. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes from your body, your overall health and resistance to disease is noticeably improved so you feel and look better.
