What is Ozone Sauna Therapy?
Ozone therapy also known as an ozone steam sauna is a type of sauna therapy that uses ozone gas in combination with heat to promote healing and wellness. That said, it has been used for medical purposes since the early 20th century.
In simple words, ozone is a naturally occurring gas composed of three oxygen atoms (O3), and it’s created by passing pure oxygen through a medical grade ozone generator. The gas is then infused into the sauna chamber, where it mixes with the air and is absorbed into the body through the skin and lungs.
Essentially you get all the same benefits as ozone injections without the uncomfortable burn associated with itch direct ozone injection.
Note: During the therapy, the patient does not breathe in the ozone gas while sitting in the sauna. Aside from the head, the patient’s entire body will sit inside a sauna chamber for a period of time, typically between 20-30 minutes. The therapy is believed to have potential benefits for a range of health conditions, including inflammatory conditions, chronic infections, , autoimmune disorders, skin conditions, and chronic pain.

Once inside, the ozone triggers peroxides to increase ATP production in the mitochondria of uour cells.. it also reacts with toxins, viruses, and bacteria, breaking them down into harmless byproducts that your body can eliminate through sweat, urine, or feces.
