Infrared Sauna Treatments
Our infrared sauna produces infrared waves that penetrates the skin, muscle, and fatty tissue to release toxins stored deep within the cells. Infrared therapy supports detoxification, relaxation, weight loss, pain relief, skin purification and cell health. An hour sauna session can burn up to 600 calories and boost the metabolism for up to 24 hours.
Infrared saunas produce soothing, relaxing heat that penetrates tissues to cleanse and detoxify cells throughout the body. Infrared heat is safe, does not contain harmful UV rays and will not cause the body to burn, even after hours of exposure.
Infrared sauna therapy offers numerous healing and health advantages. We recognize this therapy for its detoxification, weight loss, pain relief, cell health, wound healing and anti-aging benefits. There are also independent studies that indicate that infrared sauna therapy supports cardiovascular function and healing. Unlike a traditional sauna which uses warm air, an infrared sauna uses light and heat to help the body detoxify and relax.
Infrared sauna therapy is an effective anti-aging treatment because of its ability to purify and rejuvenate the skin. It is effective in reducing and treating the appearance of acne, removing heavy metals, and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to help tone and texture the skin.
Results vary with each patient. Faithfully Guided Health Center uses infrared sauna treatments to:
- Detoxify the body
- Aid in pain relief

Portable Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Treatments
Therapeutic healing occurs (and is often accelerated) when an increased amounts of oxygen are able to reach cells within the body. Hyperbaric oxygen chambers accelerate the body’s healing process by creating an environment of increased pressure that promotes oxygen absorption throughout the body’s tissues. The pressured environment allows oxygen to reach areas it cannot reach in a non-pressurized environment while promoting increased oxygen absorption into the plasma and cerebral / synovial fluids.
Hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments are a safe and effective method to provide the body with increased oxygen. Science tells us that all disease is rooted in inflammation. Hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments decrease systemic inflammation so it can be used to treat a variety of conditions and improve many disease processes including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Mood swings
- Chronic diseases including fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease
- Poor blood circulation
- Sports injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Overall healing
Athletes and weekend warriors seek hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments because they speed recovery and increase energy by improving mitochondrial function and enhancing ATP production. Hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments are also used in conjunction with various med spa treatments to speed and improve healing times and achieve lasting results.
Portable hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments are completely safe when performed under medical supervision. We often prescribe portable hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments in conjunction with other therapies such as Prolozone® treatments, diet programs and physical therapy.
Oxygen is a basic element of life. Decreased oxygen utilization within the body can lead to a plethora of chronic diseases, pain and even intensification of the aging process. The average person begins to experience decreased oxygen utilization around the age of 30, which is one reason why the body of a healthy 40-year-old generally takes more time to recover and heal than the body of a 30-year-old.
Ozone has been proven to increase oxygen utilization throughout the body, which, in turn, helps with the healing and recovery process. Prolozone® treatment involves an intraarticular injection in which ozone is administered in conjunction with vitamins and minerals to help relieve pain. At Faithfully Guided Health Center, we often recommend Prolozone® therapy to treat conditions such as:
- Some chronic illnesses
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Foot Pain Including Plantar Fasciitis
- Ankle Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Hip Pain
- Leg Pain
Prolozone® is most effective when used with prescribed co-therapies such as diet programs, physical therapy, antibiotics, lifestyle modifications and exercise regiments.
Traditional medicine often turns to pain medication, which can often become addictive and have negative side effects. Prolozone® is a safe and effective alternative to treating pain. If you are experiencing pain, contact us to learn more about how Prolozone® treatments can help.
Targeted LED Light Therapy
Targeted LED Light Therapy is a proven method of therapeutic healing that is becoming more and more widely recognized due to its plethora of chemical-free, restorative attributes. More than half a century of extensive research into light therapy reveals significant benefits in the areas of accelerated cellular repair, pain relief, muscle performance, and relaxation.
Targeted LED Light Therapy delivers energy to the body through LED light. The light is then absorbed by the cells to help increase circulation, heal and repair. Various wavelengths of red, blue and infrared light are used to reach different depths depending on the condition being treated.
Faithfully Guided Health Center’s Targeted LED Light Therapy is designed to energize the skin, nerves, tendons, muscle and bone to trigger the healing process. This is beneficial in treating numerous conditions including:
- Chronic pain
- Muscle and ligament tears
- Circulation problems
We also treat athletes prior to participating in sports or other activities to help enhance tissue performance. Targeted LED Light Therapy is especially helpful for marathon runners, tri-athletes, etc.

Therapeutic Mud Baths
Faithfully Guided Health Center uses a Peat Hyperthermia Therapy (PHT) product called Naked Mud. PHT mud baths promote the body’s ability to heal and improve cell and organ function by helping rid the body of toxins and waste products. Peat is synonymous for being able to maintain the high temperature of the bath. This promotes the absorption of nutrients while increasing blood circulation, which helps carry toxins out of body tissues. Other benefits include reduced inflammation and improved immune system.
The duration of our therapeutic mud baths is one and a half to two hours and is carried out in two phases – the actual mud bath followed by a relaxing wrap. We use therapeutic mud baths to treat a variety of conditions including:
- All types of pain, both acute and chronic
- Skin conditions including psoriasis, rashes and hives
- Chronic illnesses
- Acute illnesses including influenza and other infections and viruses
- Gynecological problems
- Neurological disorders
- Muscle tension
- Metabolic issues
- Weight loss
