Introducing the Incredible Healing Powers of Infrared Jade Saunas
How would you like to bliss out for 30 minutes while burning calories, eliminating toxins, improving your skin, and strengthening your cardiovascular and immune systems, all while relaxing, reducing stress and fatigue?
Simply slip into one of our futuristic near and far infrared sauna 'pods', serenely situated in our spa sanctuary - with dim lighting, calm music and aromatherapy infused air - and relax and rejuvenate while you sleep, meditate, or just bliss out as your troubles melt away.
How do they work?
Using the ancient healing power of jade stone, combined with high-tech near and far infrared rays, our Infrared Jade Saunas actually heat you up from the inside out, versus typical dry saunas that merely heat the air and only heat you from the outside in. And, unlike saunas found at most traditional gyms, at FBE you won’t be in a cramped space sitting on a hot wooden bench with a bunch of sweaty strangers. Who really relaxes in that type of environment?
Why are they unique?
For starters, our saunas utilize both near and far infrared rays allowing you to experience deeper healing. Research shows that the combination of both near and far infrared rays allow for deeper tissue penetration, provides anti-inflammatory as well as pain relieving benefits and increases collagen production.
At FBE, our Infrared Jade Saunas are private and temperature controlled based on your comfort zone. You decide what level of heat is good for you. Just slip into your personal pod, recline on the jade stone bed, and close the lid for cozy time away from the noise and chaos of Los Angeles city life. If you have claustrophobia - no worries, your head stays out so that you can breathe fresh air the entire time. Towels are placed on top of the jade stones and we recommend wearing tank tops and shorts, while relaxing in our pods. We suggest not showering for at least one hour after your infrared sauna session as your pores are still expelling toxins and showering can shut the process down.
What are their benefits?
Infrared Jade Saunas help strengthen your immune system, detoxify your body and treat conditions such as sciatica, arthritis, fibromyalgia, acne, achy joints and sore muscles.
Studies show that Infrared Saunas offer the following benefits:
• Detoxifies and Enhances Health
• Burns Calories and Increases Metabolism by as much as 20%
• Improves Complexion and Circulation which helps to reduce cellulite
• Strengthens the Immune System
• Significantly Reduces Pain
• 30 minutes in the sauna provides the same cardiovascular conditioning as a 6 mile run
These benefits have been demonstrated through scientific research. To read more about these studies, please visit our Why It Works tab.
In addition to the benefits noted above, Jade stone is known around the world for its anti-aging effects and is credited by many cultures with boosting mental awareness and acuity. So not only do Infrared Jade Sauna rays melt stress away, they can actually help you look and feel younger! Also, since our saunas use both near and far infrared, the rays will penetrate your body and influence your being at a cellular level by actually increasing energy levels inside your cells. All without harmful EMF emissions that some saunas emit. It makes a perfect post workout pit stop and is an integral part of FBE's weight loss, detoxification, and anti-aging programs.

Infrared light is part of natural sunlight but is not visible to the naked eye. Near and Far Infrared light, like those used in our saunas, have the ability to penetrate deep into the body's tissues and transform into heat. This creates heat within the body that dilates blood vessels and capillaries and thus improves blood circulation. As the body’s blood circulation is improved and blood flows to the surface of the body, the body’s cardiovascular system is strengthened without increasing blood pressure. Additionally, this improved blood circulation in the body can help oxygenate extremities, joints, and other areas to help facilitate injury recovery and alleviate pain. Finally, heat affects the body in numerous other ways including
- increasing the body's metabolic rate - thus the reason you are able to burn calories in our infrared sauna;
- relaxing muscles; and
- activating the body's immune system and natural cooling system.
Recent research studies discussing the benefits of Infrared Sauna follow.
Repeated sauna therapy improves myocardial perfusion in patients with chronically occluded coronary artery-related ischemia

Sauna as a valuable clinical tool for cardiovascular, autoimmune, toxicant- induced and other chronic health problems
By Crinnion WJ.
Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, Tempe, AZ, USA. email@example.com
Sauna therapy has been used for hundreds of years in the Scandinavian region as a standard health activity. Studies document the effectiveness of sauna therapy for persons with hypertension, congestive heart failure, and for post-myocardial infarction care. Some individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic fatigue, chronic pain, or addictions also find benefit. Existing evidence supports the use of saunas as a component of depuration (purification or cleansing) protocols for environmentally-induced illness. While far-infrared saunas have been used in many cardiovascular studies, all studies applying sauna for depuration have utilized saunas with radiant heating units. Overall, regular sauna therapy (either radiant heat or far-infrared units) appears to be safe and offers multiple health benefits to regular users. One potential area of concern is sauna use in early pregnancy because of evidence suggesting that hyperthermia might be teratogenic.
Infrared sauna in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. A pilot study showing good tolerance, short-term improvement of pain and stiffness, and a trend towards long-term beneficial effects

To study the effects of Infrared Sauna, a form of total-body hyperthermia in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients were treated for a 4-week period with a series of eight IR treatments. Seventeen RA patients and 17 AS patients were studied. IR was well tolerated, and no adverse effects were reported, no exacerbation of disease. Pain and stiffness decreased clinically, and improvements were statistically significant (p < 0.05 and p < 0.001 in RA and AS patients, respectively) during an IR session. Fatigue also decreased. Both RA and AS patients felt comfortable on average during and especially after treatment. In conclusion, infrared treatment has statistically significant short-term beneficial effects and clinically relevant period effects during treatment in RA and AS patients without enhancing disease activity. IR has good tolerability and no adverse effects.
Research on Far Infrared Rays by Dr. Aaron M.Flickstein This document compiles numerous studies which discuss the benefits of infrared sauna. One of the studies and anlysis equated a 30 minute sauna session to provide the same cardiovascular conditioning as a 6 mile run.
According to Brent A. Bauer, M.D, Mayo Clinic, mayoclinic.com, downloaded on 8/31/11 “ . . . no adverse effects have been reported with infrared saunas.” We do recommend, however, that you read our contraindications page for special conditions that might prohibit you from using our saunas (e.g. hemophilia) before booking an appointment.
We look forward to sharing with you the benefits of infrared light therapy!
