The latest launch from Gentle Wellness Centre offers clients holistic support for parasympathetic activity in the body. The infrared sauna treatments slow normal heat production by drawing blood from the center of the body to its periphery and help to eliminate toxins and excess acidity.

The announcement highlights the center’s mission to provide advanced functional medicine solutions for patients for whom standard medications and treatments have not worked. In addition to its complementary cancer therapies, the Gentle Wellness team also offers anti-aging, oxygen, and bio-identical hormone replacement treatments.
According to the American Cancer Society, research suggests that exposure to heat therapy may increase the effectiveness of radiation and chemotherapy treatments. By reducing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which inhibits digestion and immune response when the body is under stress, infrared light can help cancer patients manage pain while reducing the acidic environment in which cancer cells thrive.
Gentle Wellness Center’s infrared sauna treatments also help to improve circulation. This is helpful for cancer patients because a lack of oxygen and nutrients in tissue creates a breeding ground for cancer cells. By stimulating the flow of oxygen in the body, infrared therapy may help to control the spread of the disease.
Other benefits of this therapy for cancer sufferers include the reduction and elimination of toxins. The heat generated by the sauna causes perspiration, stimulates the removal of waste from the body, and balances its natural pH levels. Reduced inflammation and oxidative stress also make it harder for cancer cells to survive.
About Gentle Wellness Center
The center is based at 12011 Lee Jackson Memorial Highway in Fairfax and brings together a group of expert complementary therapists and functional medicine practitioners to provide clients with the latest innovations in alternative healthcare.
A spokesperson says, “Far Infrared Sauna therapy works by providing electromagnetic radiation through infrared lamps to heat the body directly, rather than heating the air around you. It also offers adjustable temperature which you can use for yourself and enjoy a relaxed sauna time where you provide your body with the heat it needs to heal itself.”
