Oxygen Lounge Session
At an altitude of 9200 feet, some guests may experience some discomfort or have trouble sleeping from a lack of oxygen. Oxygen can help the body to boost its oxygen levels back to sea level percentages and assist with sluggishness, headaches, loss of appetite or nausea caused from altitude sickness. Everyone will experience a pleasant boost in energy, even if you have no signs of discomfort. Alcohol will be better tolerated, and your appetite will return.

Eucalyptus oil, which is a stimulant removes exhaustion and mental sluggishness and rejuvenates the spirits of the sick.

This oil is highly effective when used daily, especially when there may be inhibited flow through breathing channels during the difficult winter months.

Tai Chi – Moving Meditation
Tai Chi is often described as “moving meditation” due to its slow, continuous movement set to deep, gentle breathing. The mind is completely absorbed in the movement of the body, which moves holistically between each pose. Its slow, circular movements loosen joints and the spine, relaxing tension in the body, relieving stress and improving concentration, muscle strength, flexibility and balance.
Qi Gong – Dynamic Energy Balance
Qi Gong encompasses both active forms of movement exercises and still meditation poses. Great emphasis is placed on regulating the breath in order to calm the nervous system and stabilize the mind. By releasing tension not only in the external muscles, but those deeper within the body and the fascia surrounding the organs, more blood flow and thus energy can reach within and support the healing of both acute and chronic conditions. When we increase our internal awareness with Qi Gong exercises, the body releases and the mind is free to simply rest in the simplicity of our true nature. We become relaxed, yet alert and ready for life.
Dao Yin – Chinese Yoga
Dao Yin is a sequence of guiding and stretching movements for the tendons, ligaments, joints and muscles similar in its effects to calisthenics for flexibility and strength. Dao Yin can be either a standalone practice or it can be used in conjunction with more active forms like Qi Gong or Tai Chi. Dao Yin movements improve balance, increase mobility in the body, and support greater functionality of the healing mechanism, blood flow, and immune response. Additionally, Dao Yin trains the mind in concentration and memory, energizes the spirit, improves the mood and strengthens the character.
Meditation – Still Mind, Healthy Body
Practiced for thousands of years across many philosophical and religious traditions, meditation spans a wide variety of approaches, but inevitably brings both challenges and delights whether one practices for five minutes or for several hours. Like other self-awareness practices, meditation creates the opportunity to rest the mind, calm the heart, and see oneself and the world with new eyes. In the Daoist tradition, stillness is the foundation for balancing one’s life in order to experience true health, happiness and longevity. Meditation can be practiced by anyone, anywhere. Begin with quantity and quality will follow.

Benefits of the Infrared Sauna
Pain Relief |Experience a noticeable reduction of pain and swelling in just a few sessions. Sauna sessions are an ancient remedy for pain relief, with an extensive history.
Detoxifying |Toxins are dissolved within your fat and oil cells just below the skin’s surface. If your body has too many toxins in it, you can’t perform at your best. The sauna helps bring those toxins out of you.
Cardiovascular Health |The sauna assists in regulating your blood pressure and cholesterol, eases hypertension and improves your circulation by expanding your blood vessels.
Weight Loss |By regulating blood pressure, cholesterol, and detoxifying our body, we are creating a better internal environment within our bodies. This naturally assists the progress for weight loss. Combined with proper exercise and a balanced diet, weight loss is an attainable goal.
Stress Relief & Emotional Balance |Some emotional imbalance can occur from a deficiency in essential vitamins and minerals as a result of heavy metals and toxins in the body. The infrared energy of the sauna emanates natural sunlight to assist the body with emotional, hormonal and mental balance, while increasing circulation. This triggers an endorphin release that loosens tight muscles and calms the mind.
Skin Beautification & Decongestant |After using the sauna, you will notice your skin properties become softer and smoother by bringing fresh nutrients to the skin’s surface. Internally, the heat not only opens capillaries to increase circulation, it can also open up nasal passages, encouraging the sinuses to drain.
How Does The Infrared Sauna Work?
The infrared sauna elevates your core temperature, which dilates your capillaries, arterioles and venules. During this process, your muscles, joints and soft tissue experience relief and assistance in the natural healing process by boosting blood circulation which carries off metabolic waste products that in turn transport oxygen-rich blood to depleted muscles and joints. Also, by increasing the heart rate and blood circulation, the infrared sauna detoxifies the body in a unique and stable fashion. A layer of fat and oil exists below the skins surface, and as the heat increases the skins temperature, it causes the fat's and oils to sweat out of the skins oil glands.
