Ozone Stream Sauna

The benefits of a steam sauna on the immune system and disease processes have been well documented. In addition to being relaxing and soothing, a sauna and the accompanying induced hyperthermia on the body, mimics the beneficial effects of a fever, without the discomfort. At 104 degrees F., for example, the growth rate of the polio virus is reduced up to 250 times; at 106 degrees pneumococcus, a bacterium responsible for pneumonia, dies.

Although the effects of this artificial method of increasing the body temperature are not as comprehensive as a natural fever, there are definite system wide effects. There is evidence that artificial fever works as an immune system stimulant by increasing the number of white blood cells in the body. In a 1959-review of studies on the effects of heat treatments, Mayo Clinic researcher Dr. Wakim and colleagues cite findings indicating that the number of white blood cells in the blood increased by an average of 58% during artificially induced fever. Researchers also have found increases in the activity of the white blood cells during induced fever.

Apart from the immune system-stimulating effects of steam sauna sweat therapy, many thought it as one of the most effective and painless detoxifying treatments available. Sweat contains almost the same elements as urine, and for this reason, the skin is sometimes called the third kidney. It is estimated that as much as 30% of bodily wastes are eliminated by way of perspiration, and during a steam sauna, the body perspires profusely.


The Ozone / Infrared Sauna is an amazingly effective yet simple unit with all the features of steam heat, ozone gas, and long wave infrared. Ozone, a highly active form of oxygen, possesses unique properties which are being defined and applied to biological systems as well as to clinical practice. As a molecule containing a large excess of energy, Ozone manifests bactericidal, virucidal, and fungicidal actions which makes it a treatment in many conditions. Ozone application for infections, burns, dental, intestinal conditions, and circulatory disorders is a most effective and safe way of treating these problems. Research shows that it maybe effective in improving:

Immunological, endocrine, neurological, metabolic and hormonal systems.

The inactivation and/or destruction of viral, bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections.

The use of clinical Ozone has great adjunctive benefits in the treatment of many common disorders. Used routinely, it can dramatically improve many conditions.

The sun is the main source of all the earth’s energies and it only makes sense that heating devices to warm and treat the body should be based on the same principles. That was the rational of the medical doctors of the Orient, and hospital studies have long proved them right. In fact, long wave infrared (IR) is a technology of the future.

Due to the deep penetration, over one and one-half inches into the skin, these deep IR waves warm the internal organs with substantial increases in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. This translates into the following benefits to ailments associated with poor circulation and thus have responded well according to hospital studies performed in China:




Fatigued muscles

Menstrual cramps     

Heart problems        

Stretch marks         


Nervous Tension  



Varicose veins

In China, where it is estimated that over 700,000 long wave IR units are in use, researchers have shown the following:  

•  Decreases in inflammation and edema from soft tissue injury.  
•  Relief of pain from arthritis and rheumatism.
•  Promotion of healing.
•  Help in skin disorders and fostering hair growth in cases of baldness.
•  Balancing of the autonomic nervous system.
•  Promoting digestion and tranquility.

And lastly, all researchers have shown significant increases in metabolic rate. The burning of calories can increase to up to 250% in a 15 minute, single sauna session. As a result, regular use of an IR sauna can play a pivotal role in both weight control and cardiovascular conditions. This is most valuable for those who don’t exercise.

By adding ozone into this environment, the ozone is easily absorbed into the skin and lymphatic system because of the open pores. This provides an excellent detoxifying effect and it is also reported that the effects are once again not limited to detoxification, but may induce the desirable system wide effects that is desired in the medical use of ozone therapy: oxygenation of all the tissues, organs, and cells of the body, boosting the immune system, stimulation of the release of anti-cancer substances from the white blood cells of the immune system, enhancement of blood and oxygen delivery throughout the body.  

It is very important to point out that the steam sauna used for this "Ozone Sauna" treatment is of the type where the individual's head protrudes from the top of the sauna, and the individual is therefore not breathing the ozone / steam mixture. Concentrations used for this type of treatment are usually approximately 40ug/ml, and the ozone is introduced into the sauna at a rate of 1/4LPM.   
Using the steam sauna is one of the most popular methods of taking advantage of this therapy. The steam ozone sauna system for applying ozone has many advantages:  

It is a relaxing and non-invasive approach to ozone therapy. It cleanses the skin, pores, and lymphatic system. The user will take advantage of 2 therapies at the same time: sweat therapy and ozone therapy (both individually with their own health benefits).   You feel clean, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
