All of our classes at Oxygen Yoga & Fitness are in a Far Infrared Heated Studio. So what is Far Infrared heat and what are the benefits? Infrared Heat is an invisible wave of energy that has the ability to penetrate all the layers of the human body allowing the most inner regions of our bodies to benefit from the heat. Naturally Infrared waves are emitted from the sun, our hands and our bodies. By using the Far Infrared heating in our studios our members are able to benefit from this therapy by detoxifying, and eliminating heavy metals and carcinogens from their bodies.  As waves are absorbed by your body, molecules begin to vibrate, causing them to start to expel the toxins, fat and impurities from your cells into your blood stream.  These are released from your body in the form of sweat.  The result is an incredible detoxifying effect at a cellular level.

Far Infrared heating has also been attributed to improving skin elasticity, strengthening your immune system, reducing fatigue, fat loss, and water retention. It is an amazing way to help Lose Weight!  Far Infrared heat helps you burn 35% more of additional calories!

Some of the benefits from Oxygen’s Infrared heating systems are:  

  • Far Infrared expands capillaries, which stimulates increased blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation
  • Far Infrared thereby promotes elimination of the following:
    • Chemicals and Toxins from the blood
    • Carcinogenic heavy metals
    • Lactic acid
    • Toxic substances from food processing
    • Radiation
    • Free fatty acids
    • Subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue
    • Excess sodium associated with hypertension
    • Uric acid (linked to pain and Gout)
  • Far Infrared strengthens the Cardiovascular System by causing the heart rate and cardiac output to increase, and diastolic blood pressure to decrease
  • Far Infrared stimulates enzyme activity and metabolism. One hour under the FIR improves metabolism
  • It also increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. Excellent for healing burns, scar tissue and skin problems
  • FIR heat aids in breaking down cellulite – trapped water, fat and waste
  • Far Infrared may induce the killing of varied pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites
  • Far Infrared promotes rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury)
  • Far Infrared relieves nervous tension and relaxes auto-neuro muscles thereby helping the body make the most of its intended healing abilities. FIR reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms, as muscle fibers are heated
  • Far Infrared strengthens the Immune System by stimulating increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by the bone marrow and killer T-cells by the thymus
  • Offers pain relief from arthritis, back pain, Fibromyalgia, and muscle and joint pain
  • Improves Fexibility & Mobility
  • Promotes Weight Loss
  • Reduces Stress
  • Alleviates Symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder
