Ozone Steam Sauna

Our Ozone Steam Sauna is remarkable because it has the ability to expose the entire body to the healing effects of ozone.

The Ozone Steam Sauna is a hot steam pod into which ozone is introduced, which then enters the body through the pores in the skin. The method is called Transdermal Ozone Therapy, also known as hyperthermic ozone and transcutaneous ozone therapy.


Potential Health Benefits:

  • Immune system support because ozone therapy activates your immune system through increases the production of oxidants and boosts immunity.
  • Improved blood circulation, this is due to more oxygen travels to your cells, tissues, and organs.
  • Protection from invaders like bacteria, viruses and fungi by halting their growth and reducing their survival. This is because ozone therapy increases the production of oxidants which help to protect the body from these unwanted invaders.
  • Reduced oxidative stress, which is when there is an imbalance of cell-damaging free radicals and protective antioxidants that can lead to inflammation in the body.

How Does the Ozone Sauna Work?

Ozone is an activated, trivalent (three atoms) form of oxygen. Oxygen is O2 whereas ozone is O3. During an Ozone Sauna session, ozone breaks down into two atoms of regular oxygen – by giving up one atom of singlet oxygen leaving a single, reactive oxygen atom. Medical ozone is made when medical grade oxygen is electrically activated (using an ozone generator) to form ozone.

In doing so, Ozone has the ability to penetrate into cells, tissues and organs. When it does this, it stimulates cell respiration and regeneration while also increasing circulation and helping detoxify the body.

Quick Facts:
  • Each session is approximately 30 minutes long
  • No Metal– Our unit is made of cold corona double-walled quartz glass tube which ensures oxygen and ozone only come into contact with glass (which is 100% ozone resistant)
  • Pure ozone output – since the ozone only comes into contact with 100% ozone resistant materials, the ozone  produced is pure, completely free of metals and completely free of nitrogen byproducts.
  • Medical Grade Ozone – Medical ozone is made when medical grade oxygen is electrically activated to form ozone.

  • Relaxing Effect – Patients report that Ozone Steam Sauna has a naturally relaxing effect. This is partly because ozone oxidises excess adrenaline in the body, producing overall calm.
Ozone Steam Sauna & Detox Pathways

The primary modality is Transdermal Ozone, which you can think of as boosted oxygen that is immersed through your bloodstream, where it then binds to heavy metals and toxins so your body can more effectively eliminate them.

We eliminate toxins naturally in our body through sweat and respiration. Our ozone steam sauna helps you sweat out toxins.

Mechanisms of Action


Research suggests that ozone steam sauna may support antioxidant capacity. It neutralizes free radicals, which are highly reactive substances that cause oxidative stress and cell damage. Ozone can also react with other oxidants such as hydrogen peroxide to form harmless products such as water and oxygen. The combination of these two mechanisms results in a significant reduction in the levels of oxidized lipids, proteins, and DNA. This helps to protect the body from oxidative damage, which can lead to a wide range of diseases.


This refers to the ability of ozone steam sauna to modulate or improve blood circulation and other hemodynamic parameters. It has been shown to increase heart rate, pulse pressure, and systemic vascular resistance. These changes can result in improved peripheral circulation, better oxygen delivery to tissues and organs, and improved metabolic efficiency.


One of the primary mechanisms of action of ozone steam sauna is to stimulate the immune system. It has been shown to increase the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, which are involved in tissue repair and inflammation. This leads to increased activation of natural killer cells, macrophages, lymphocytes, and other components of the immune system.

Ozone Steam Sauna FAQ

Ozone is a colorless gas in which each molecule is made up of three atoms of oxygen which are unstably bound together. Because ozone has a positive charge, it has an oxidative effect on organic compounds such as our bodies. It is drawn toward negatively charged foreign cells such as bacteria, yeast, viruses and parasites and neutralizes them, effectively killing active infections.

We ask that you bring a swim suit to wear during your session and two (2) towels to your session. One (1) towel will be placed under you during your sessions and the other will be used to dry off after your session. You may also want to bring loose clean fitting clothes to wear after your treatment as some people continue to sweat for 20 minutes once they are done.

No! For optimal results, we recommend waiting 1-2 hours after your session to shower. This will allow the ozone to seap into your pores.

Saunas of any kind, whether ozone or not, should not be used by pregnant women, people with high blood pressure, and those with a high risk for a stroke.

Hydration is important! Drink plenty of water before and after your session. Try not to wear any body lotion or perfume on the day of your treatment. Some of our patients like to dry brush at home prior to their session.

Safety and sanitation are our TOP priority at the Institute for Human Optimization. The pod is cleaned after each session with medical grade disinfectant.
