Cal Heat, the indoor and outdoor sauna manufacturer from the Cal Spas family, has partnered with the ECHL Hockey Team, Ontario Reign, for the upcoming 2010-2011 season.
Cal Heat provided the Ontario Reign, the minor league affiliate team of the National Hockey League's Los Angeles Kings, with its IR200A Infrared Sauna to promote the health and help prevent injuries of the players throughout the season.
"We are thrilled to partner with the Ontario Reign for their upcoming, highly-anticipated season," said Casey Loyd, president of Cal Spas. "Our infrared sauna has a number of health benefits and will offer the players the soothing therapy they need after a demanding game."
Cal Heat infrared saunas relieve joint pain, sore muscles and arthritis, making the IR200A infrared sauna a perfect fit for the professional hockey team. Regular sauna use, combined with exercise therapy, can also help purge the body of unwanted chemicals, solvents and toxic elements, and promote many wellness benefits, including weight-loss.
"We are very excited to partner up with Cal Heat this season," said Karl Taylor, head coach of Ontario Reign. "Our players will be using their IR200A infrared sauna, which will help with weight management, and will strengthen each player's immune and cardiovascular system. It will also decrease stress, increase energy and will help relieve pain. This is another tool to help our guys perform at the highest level."
The IR200A will also increase the Ontario Reign's overall performance throughout the season, according to Bobby Walls, athletic trainer for the Ontario Reign. "This type of therapy will help our guys perform better by improving their immune systems, joint pain and muscle aches," Walls said. "The Cal Heat IR200A Infrared Sauna will keep our guys playing longer and keep our injuries down."
