Ozone Sauna Treatments

Oxygen Fitness provides a steam sauna and ozone therapy, which is an important part of any detoxification program.


Clients sit inside – with their head outside – a steam sauna that has oxygenated air pumped into it. The sauna allows the steam to surround the body so that ozone permeates the skin. Research into ozone therapy suggests that it helps the body fight pathogenic bacteria and fungi, as well as viruses. Further, ozone has been shown to stimulate oxygen metabolism and stimulate the kreb's cycle. However, safety is important. Ozone and fatty acids react in cell membranes to produce peroxides, thus more oxygen is released from hemoglobin, so healthy elimination mechanisms are necessary. The sauna works by using the hot steam to open the body's pores, which increases the exchange potential between ambient gases and the body. The body's detox process is stimulated, and activated oxygen reacts with the molecules with the highest oxidation potential. Thus, more sweat means greater excretion of toxic substances from the body. Also, ventilation is important because inhaling ozone can damage the lining of the lungs.


The sauna reduces the lactic acid in their muscles and builds the immune system, both of which are important for people who are working out consistently. The sauna can leave an overall feeling of rejuvenation.


Benefits of ozone sauna:

  • Relaxes and loosens muscles by reducing the buildup of lactic acid and increasing muscle flexibility.
  • Oxidizes toxins so they can be eliminated through the skin, lungs, kidneys and colon.
  • Boosts blood circulation, helping injured muscles to repair quicker.
  • Stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels relieving pain and speeding the healing process.
  • Eliminates bacterial and viral infections of all kinds.
  • Speeds up the metabolic processes of the inner organs and endocrine glands resulting in a loss of 200-450 calories in a 30-minute session.


Newest research shows ozone therapy is an effective treatment for:

  • Detoxification programs
  • Immune system deficiencies
  • Pain management
  • Heavy metal toxicity
  • Arthritis
  • Stress and muscle tension
  • Increasing body metabolism
  • Elimination of toxins
  • Blood circulation


“The fundamental cause of all degenerative disease is hypoxia – oxygen starvation at the cellular level. Cancer and other degenerative disease cannot survive in an oxygen-rich environment.”

~ Otto Warburg, two-time Nobel prize winner for medicine, 1931 and 1944

Ozonated Sauna

The Sauna steam cabinet, however, is a pleasurable experience. Because of the moist heat, the pores are open, and the capillaries are dilated. The ozone enters and oxidizes toxins in the fat, the lymph and the blood. The skin is the largest organ of elimination. The person sweats the oxidized toxins back out, avoiding the dump of toxins to the liver and colon which can bring on the symptoms of toxic shock overload. Instead, the person emerges from the steam cabinet feeling extremely relaxed and mellow, and ready for bed. This an ideal way of counteracting e stress of the day.


Using ozonated steam in cabinets is currently being used around the world for integrative health by aestheticians, chiropractors, massage therapists, and other practitioners because they recognize this as a natural way to detoxify and cleanse the body. Ozonated steam stimulates circulation and increases the oxygen supply to every cell and organ in the body.


Transdermal ozone therapy is suggested as a good method of treating lymph system. The Transdermal technique has been recently developed to take advantage of the therapeutic possibilities using hyperthermia in conjunction with ozone therapy. The patient sits in an ozone-resistant steam cabinet, with the head out (See Photo], and the body is surrounded by warm steam. The steam causes pores to open fully and the ozone, introduced into the cabinet by silicon tubing from the generator output, can penetrate fully into all the tissue - the blood, the lymph and the fat. Since the majority of toxins are held in the lymph and the fat, this treatment is the most effective way to eliminate them from the body. Since the skin is the largest organ of elimination, themajority of the toxins are sweated out, sparing the liver and kidneys extra work.


Hyperthermia itself is a very effective technique, many thousands of years old. lt results in a "false fever" reaction, which simulates the body's own defense mechanism. With the addition of ozone, the treatment becomes doubly powerful. As the toxins are oxidized, and eliminated from the body, the fat containing them is no longer needed, and also leaves. Weight loss of 30, 50 and even 80 lbs over a period of months are reported. The skin becomes smooth, soft and free of blemishes. Symptoms of a whole host of diseases disappear as the toxins leave the system. Unlike other methods of ozone application, employing ozone in a steam sauna will induce the ‘healing crisis‘, which feels like having the flu for a few days. It can be seen as a sign of beneficial healing.
