Therapeutic Sauna

IFSMED has designed a concept of therapeutic spa which represents a selection of non-prescription modalities focused on activation of the body’s internal healing power.

The therapeutic spa protocols are highly individualized and customizable.

Patients who may benefit from the spa therapy include:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Obesity
  • Hypertension
  • Chronic infection
  • Low back pain
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Chronic muscle pain
  • Sport injuries
  • Stress reduction
  • Improvement of athletic performance
  • Chronic insomnia

FAR-INFRARED SAUNA
Far Infrared (FIR) rays are invisible waves of energy that are capable of penetrating deep into the human body and elevate the body's surface temperature and activate major metabolic functions. The human body, including palms, radiate far infrared energy through the skin. 'Palm Healing', an ancient tradition in Asian medicine, has used the healing properties of far infrared rays for 3,000 years. FIR sauna incorporates a modern technology producing an intense stream of the infrared energy capable of stimulating body’s healing power.


FIR sauna is better tolerated by people who don't tolerate the high temperatures of the standard humid hot air saunas. This is because FIR rays do not heat the air inside the sauna, but they still heat the body. A typical duration of the FIR sauna session varies from 15 to 45 minutes. The optimal protocol includes 20 sessions within 4-5 weeks as a loading course followed by a maintenance sessions on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.  

The benefits of FIR sauna include:

  • stimulation of blood flow and tissue oxygenation
  • stimulation of sweating
  • stimulation of lipolysis (the breakdown of lipids/fat tissue)
  • weight control
  • muscle relaxation
  • normalization of immune responses
  • stimulation of regenerative processes
  • normalization of cardiovascular function
  • normalization of blood pressure
  • stress reduction

HIGH INTENSITY PULSED-ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD THERAPY
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is a therapeutic modality that utilizes electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through body tissues and induces microcurrent electrical signals that stimulate regenerative and metabolic processes.

PEMF benefits include:

  • anti-inflammatory effects
  • pain-relieving activity
  • stimulation of soft tissue repair
  • muscle relaxation activity
  • stimulation of bone repair and improvement of bone density
  • treatment of anxiety and depression

HERBS AND FOOD SUPPLEMENT OPTIMIZATION
It is well recognized that traditional medical therapy has its limitations. These limitations are based on the limited selection of available therapeutic agents and barriers due to the potential drug side effects and drug interactions. The expansion of the therapeutic horizons is based on broader use of natural products and supplements.


DIETARY CONSULTATIONS
Our nutrition consultations analyze generated test results, patient’s medical history, current eating habits and lifestyle and formulate instruction on how to eat nutritiously within specific dietary restrictions.  In addition, we help our patients with meal and menu ideas, recipe modification and plans for eating out.


INRAVENOUS MICRONUTRIENT THERAPY
The human body requires a number of nutrients that it cannot produce itself known as micronutrients. In many cases, we are able to get the micronutrients from our diets. In some cases a person will have an imbalance of nutrients that cannot be corrected by diet due to absorption issues. Direct intravenous administration of micronutrients allows us to reach therapeutic concentrations of the nutrients into the blood.
