FAR INFRARED SAUNA HELPS AFTER CHEMO TREATMENT FOR CANCER

Yesterday my Pilates instructor, Derik Klein, told me how much he misses his far infrared sauna. His current space is too small to set it up and so it rests in the basement.  As we talked about it, he revealed that he’d originally purchased the sauna when he had cancer and was undergoing chemo. After each chemo treatment, he’d returned home feeling so awful that he would sleep for hours. But a friend told him that using a Far infrared Sauna would help to get rid of the toxins stored in the body from the chemo treatments. He couldn’t believe the difference in how he felt after using the sauna.  Although he was still weak and needed a lot of rest, when he started taking a sauna after chemo he turned the corner on cancer and began to regain his strength.  Not only did he sweat out the toxins, the heat in a sauna boosted his immune system. He’s been cancer free for 5 years. An infrared sauna is really the good sweat! I hope you can set your sauna up again soon, Derik.

In our Olympic Hot Tub Company stores, we’ve heard many anecdotal stories about infrared sauna health benefits especially after chemo treatments to help with pain, nausea , tiredness and toxins. Have any readers used a sauna after chemo?  Please share your experiences.  We’d like to hear from you.

PS: Derik is the best Pilates instructor I’ve ever had. He teaches at Maya in Fremont and at his own studio on Capitol Hill in Seattle.  Check out Derik’s new website, Core Mind and Body.

  1. My sister is undergoing chemo right now. I have a far infrared machine ( a little rainbow shaped machine that you lay under ). My questions:

    Is it safe for her to use this machine between chemo treatments?
    Is it best to wait until she is completely done with all her treatment? (5 Months total )
    Is there information you can lead me to that I can give to her and her husband to help them
    understand the safety of it?

    I am also interested in the far infrared sauna at a future time. How much are they?

    Thank you

    1. Hello Lesly:
      Thanks for writing.
      I have no information on the kind of far infrared machine that you’re referring to.
      Your sister’s doctor would be the best person to answer the questions you’ve posed.
      Wishing her luck with her chemo and 100% recovery.

      Best wishes,
      Alice@olympic
