2. Health & Beauty Benefits
Relieve pain: The far-infrared rays of a SaunaGen sauna accelerate the blood circulation and supply more
oxygen to the body.
Increased blood circulation diminishes inflammation, relieves pain, and speeds up recovery.
Infrared saunas have also been used to treat bursitis, rheumatism, arthritis, and hemorrhoids.
Increased blood
circulation not only alleviates internal ailments, but also skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and scars. Good
circulation is essential for smooth and firm skin.
Burn calories & fat: The far-infrared rays of the SaunaGen sauna eliminate extra salt and subcutaneous fat.
Burn up to 600 calories in one half hour session versus a half hour of jogging which burns 300 calories, and a half
hour of cycling burns 225 calories.
Relax your body and mind: Use the built-in CD player to listen to your favorite music to relax and reduce
stress. Infrared saunas also improve; often cure insomnia, and other stress related disorders.
Reduce toxins and improve complexions: Sweating in a lower temperature environment activates the sweat
glands and expels toxins from the skin.

b. Automatic thermostat for constant temperature
Timer and buzzer: buzzer sounds 5 minutes before the end of session
