The skin is one of the largest detox pathways. Infrared heat assists the body to rid 20% toxins and 80% water compared to a traditional sauna, which only assists the body in sweating out 3% toxins and 97% water. Thus making the infrared sauna 7 times more effective at detoxing the body.

Weight loss

Studies have shown that a 30-minute infrared sauna session allows you to burn up to 600 calories. Heart rate rises with increased cardiac output as the body works to cool itself. As the body’s core temperature increases so does metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. So Relax and work out without working out and boost those happy endorphins.

Immune system boost

The heat tricks your body into a state of fever by increasing your core temperature. This immune response helps to build your defence mechanism, combined with the elimination of toxins excreted via sweat, this natural process builds your resistance against infection and disease.

Stress reduction

Infrared therapy alleviates stress and anxiety by balancing the stress hormone, cortisol in the body. Like sunbathing, infrared warmth promotes an overall feeling of wellbeing; good for the mind and body.

Alleviate pain

Infrared heat accelerates healing and supports strains and sports injuries. Heat responsive pain (HRP) research has been shown to have therapeutic benefits by relieving back pain and arthritis, increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation to the injury site. Infrared penetrates deeply into joints, muscles and tissues as fresh oxygenated blood and nutrients reach these areas of discomfort, easing joint stiffness and pain associated with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Skin rejuvenation

Infrared can deeply penetrate the skin helping to heal skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and scaring. The heat also reaches the hypodermic fat layer thus breaking down cellulite. Skin elasticity improves helping to fight signs of ageing, giving you a healthy natural glow.

Lyme disease

Lyme disease is on the rise and looks likely that cases will continue to increase. Infrared heat causes a powerful detoxifying effect. Lyme disease releases neurotoxins which create a wide range of symptoms, research suggests that infrared heat removes these harmful toxins accelerating the healing process.

What is Sound Bath Therapy

What is Sound 

Have a full body massage with the vibrations of sound therapy.

A Sound Bath can be an unforgettable sound experience for those who seek deep relaxation, rejuvenation and an acceleration of their inward journey. Time is suspended as you enter a world of vibration, sensation and experience. Great insights can be accessed. You feel truly, vibrantly alive. Once you’ve had your first Sound Bath you’ll want more.  With the use of Tibetan Bowls, Crystal Bowls, Meditation Drums and chimes we can adjust the vibrations within our body.  Every cell in our body is an energy and a vibration. With the use of Sound Therapy, we can create vibrations which have been demonstrated to affect our bodies functions, even our blood pressure.

85% of all diseases are caused by emotional stress. The patterns of this stress show up as imbalanced frequencies in our energy field. Sound therapy, through physics principles of resonance, provides the body and mind the opportunity to return to an energetically balanced centre.

The nervous system resets into a more relaxed place resulting in sometimes immediate and profound relief from pain, tension and stress.

How it Works 

Different sounds effects  people in a variety of ways. Scientists agree that everything is made up of energy and that from the smallest object to the largest everything is in a state of vibration. This vibration is releasing sound even though it may not be possible for us to hear it.  The sound that is being emitted travels as a wave.  This wave travels through our ears and into our brain.  The wave affects us in all parts of our body, from our breathing, heart rate, nervous system and right down to a cellular level.

All the organs in a healthy body vibrate at a natural resonance or frequency but disease can appear where some part of the body is out of balance and is not vibrating at its optimum frequency – it is out of tune with the rest of the organs.

When this happens sound can be used to reintroduce healthy resonance by entraining the diseased organ back to its peak performance and in balance and harmony with the rest of the body.

Classes throughout South Lanarkshire also  at the location of Peaceful Haven Holistic Therapies where I offer a exclusive Sound Bath with very small number of up to 4 clients or 1 to 1 sessions available
