Sunrise Natural Medicine is pleased to offer Sauna Therapy so that you can experience the benefits of hyperthermia in downtown Bakersfield.

Deep relaxation of body and mind.

                     Detoxification. Weight loss. Pain relief.                    Improved cardiovascular health.

It’s no wonder that heating and sweating practices are part of cultures all around the world; these are just a few of the known benefits of sauna therapy.


Studies have shown that a therapeutic rise in temperature, such as that experienced in a sauna, can result in:

  • detoxification
  • stress relief
  • pain relief
  • weight loss
  • lower blood pressure
  • increased cardiovascular fitness
  • decreased risks from diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease
  • improved immune function
  • healthy, glowing skin
  • and more.

Those things occur because time spent warming up in the sauna causes:

  • Increased blood circulation due to a faster pulse and dilated blood vessels 1, which means:
    • more oxygen to your brain
    • more oxygen and nutrients bathing your cells
    • more waste products carried away from your cells
  •  A surge in endorphins, those “happy chemicals” that you might know as the great feeling after a good workout.2
  • Suppression of excessive “fight or flight” autonomic nervous system, allowing balance with the “rest, digest and repair” parasympathetic nervous system. 3
  • Increased Immune System activity, with greater circulation of more aggressive germ-fighting cells. 4
  • Sweating, which purges toxins 5and burns calories.
  • Improved blood vessel function, which can help to heal injuries, prevent heart attack 6and lower blood pressure. 7
  • Increased production of collagen and elastin in the skin. 8

The Sauna at Sunrise Natural Medicine is Far-Infrared. This means it has Zero EMF (Electro-Magnetic Field), and that it uses a gentle heat that penetrates deeply to warm all the tissues, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons, and effectively increase circulation and metabolism.
