Far Infrared Sauna

Optimize your health with Far Infrared Sauna sessions, now available at Full Spectrum Family Medicine.

Our 100% Toxin Free Sauna was carefully handcrafted from solid Ontario Basswood in a toxin-free environment. This environmentally clean product is safer for those with chemical sensitivities than most traditionally built saunas, which may include toxic glues, pesticides and preservatives in their manufacture.

Lower heat, low EMF, medical grade ceramic heaters help prevent overheating the core body temperature. Ceramic-coated grates over the heaters insure even an active child could not be burned by anything touched in the sauna.

Optimize Your Experience

•Hydrate with proper fluid replacement before, during and after sauna use. A good rule of thumb is to drink at least a ½ cup of water every 15 minutes. Do not consume alcohol, sodas or sweetened beverages before, during or immediately following sauna use.

•Shower directly after using the sauna to eliminate the possibility of your body reabsorbing toxins through the skin. For your modesty and convenience, a shower is located in the sauna room along with complimentary towels.

•Utilize the complimentary shampoo, conditioner and body wash located in the shower. These products are fragrance free, gluten free (no corn, soy, wheat, egg or dairy), salicylate free and contain no tree nut or peanut oils.

An Artist's Passion

by Rosemarie Turke

My interest in the visual arts has always been a prominent influence throughout my life. I love to explore the many art forms and have done so throughout the various stages of my life. In childhood, in war torn Germany, I found solace through draw-ing. In adulthood, as a parent interacting with my children. Later, my artistic creativity continued as I found ways to integrate art through teaching young children as a Montessori directress.

It was not until I retired that I could devote more time and energy into my passion. There I could find that quiet peaceful place of contentment within. This is what I strive to convey through my renderings. Whether I am painting a child, landscape or still life, I am especially attracted to the simplicity and the "silence" in the Chinese brush painting technique, where the concept of "less is more" is observed.

When selecting a media, it is the subject that dictates the type of media best suited to use. It may be watercolor, pastel, oils or perhaps even a collage that best reflects my intentions for that particular art form. My hope is that the viewer will also share similar emotions, discovering the "joie de vivre" when viewing my artistic expressions.
