Because the skin is the body’s largest organ for detoxification, ACM utilizes only the best Sunlighten Infrared Saunas to help the body eliminate toxins through your pores.
Far Infrared energy can gently penetrate the skin 2 to 3 inches, resulting in a heating effect observed deep in the muscular tissues and internal organs. This “deep heating” along with sweating, is thought to be responsible for the healing effects and other health benefits.

Your First Visit
After reviewing your history with us, a staff member will escort you to our Far Infrared Sauna room. You will see the hypoallergenic Sunlight Signature II Sauna, a shower to rinse after the session, towels to dry off and a table to place all of your belongings. We suggest, because you will perspire profusely, to remove all of your clothing before getting into the sauna. If you are uncomfortable removing all your clothes you may choose to wear one of our robes or you can bring whatever you’re comfortable in. Typically, the first session runs about 20 to 30 minutes at a moderate temperature. After each sauna visit, your sessions will increase in temperature. When your session is over, you may use the shower and towels provided, dress and meet us out front. People have experienced improved colonic & other detox sessions after using the Far Infrared Sauna, so be sure to ask about our special packages!
Supports Core Body Temperature
Enzymes are responsible for nearly every chemical and biological process in the body, and they are very sensitive to temperature. A small decrease in temperature can cause a large decrease in the activity of an enzyme. Many people have low body temperatures without considering if this could be related to other health problems.

Heals Soft Tissue
For brand new injuries that involve swelling, ice is usually the best treatment, in order to relieve swelling. However, for existing injuries, such as strains or sprains, or other soft tissue injuries, heat is the best treatment.

Infrared therapy is known to relieve chronic pain. Click here for one interesting study, focusing on back pain. However, many infrared devices offer no way to easily target that therapy on the affected area for long spans of time. Infrared light offers a powerful and natural form of pain relief, with no unpleasant side effects.
Whole-body infrared therapy, also called waon therapy, can increase the temperature of the body, and improve circulation greatly. The capillaries expand, and the hands and feet become warm, in the effort to shed excess heat. This extra blood flow allows more nutrients and oxygen to reach the cells, allows wastes to be rapidly exported, and allows rapid drainage of accumulated lymph.

Allows Artificial Fever
Hippocrates said that if had the power to produce a fever, he could cure all disease. This is a bit of an overstatement. But still, it’s amazing that even in his time, he understood the body uses fever to fight off disease. This technique essentially creates a mild artificial fever. There is a fascinating book by Dr. Nobuhiro Yoshimizu, called The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees, which describes this technique in detail, and the breathtaking results that were achieved.
Breaks a Sweat
Sweating is healthy, and it serves several important biological functions. Aside from cooling us off and unclogging pores, sweating allows our body to excrete accumulated toxic compounds. This study even finds that certain toxins are preferentially excreted through sweat. Going through life without sweating every day is unnatural, at least compared to the rest of human history. Of course, not everyone can exercise vigorously every day. But far infrared therapy does involve some of the same biological processes.
