No other sauna's heating system is as effective at relieving pain than a Medical Sauna™. One of the cornerstones of what makes Medical Sauna™ so effective at healing is its 3D Heat Therapy™. Heat therapy has many benefits for your body, from relieving sore muscles, ligaments, and other pain areas to increasing range of motion, decreasing muscle spasms, and reducing arthritic pain. The 3D Heat Therapy™ works by penetrating deep into the body's tissues and cells as temperatures rise, which leads to therapeutic benefits all over your body. This improved therapy, found only in a Medical Sauna™, will leave your body feeling refreshed and pain free.
Additional research conducted in a NASA study done by Dr. Whelan with infrared heat determined that the technology allows for deep penetration of tissue and increased cell growth. This allows for a significant reduction in pain levels as stiffness defuses and relaxation occurs.
Medical Saunas™ are more than just saunas. They were designed to help heal your body. Because of all the doctors that came together to help make Medical Saunas™ possible, and the over 100+ years of combined experience they all provided, there are lots of medical benefits you will receive by using it daily.
Because Medical Saunas™ are based purely on documented studies, we have included the appropriate studies below with links for further research and verification.
This study examined if the use of continuous heat at home between physical therapy sessions at a clinic resulted in better therapy outcomes in patients with chronic knee pain
The group who had heat applied showed pain attenuation after 2 weeks of therapy sessions. Active range of motion and strength of the knee significantly improved over time compared to the placebo group. Home exercise compliance was significantly higher in the group with heat applied than placebo group. These results indicated that the use of heat therapy as an adjunct to conventional physical therapy for chronic knee pain significantly improved pain attenuation and recovery of strength and movement in patients with chronic knee pain.

The present systematic review aimed to synthesize evidence for the effectiveness of heat therapy interventions from randomized trials. Six relevant databases were searched for studies on heat therapy for primary dysmenorrhea. Menstrual pain intensity and quality of life were the primary and secondary outcomes respectively.
Heat therapy showed evidence of pain reduction. Heat therapy showed potential as adjunct remedies in the management of primary dysmenorrheal.
