Infrared Sauna Benefits Explained

Benefits of Infrared Saunas: 

1.Detoxification

Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Infrared Sauna benefits the body directly by heating it directly causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.  When compared to traditional saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins! 

2. Pain Relief: 

Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.  Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time. 

3. Weight Loss: 

Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax!  As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. 

4. Treatment of Chronic Diseases: 

Through the deep heating and efficient detoxification elements achieved with the use of Far Infrared Saunas, it is extremely effective in the treatment of debilitation and chronic diseases such as Chronic Fatigue System, Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease and many others.   

5. Stress Reduction: 

Sweating is stress reducing and very relaxing for both mind and body.  During a session, your body’s muscles are warmed by infrared heat.  This helps to release the stress and fatigue brought on by muscle tension.  Stress build-up creates tension in the body, manifesting in various aches and pains.  The heat and humidity defuses the pain and relaxes tired muscles. 

6. Sports Recovery: 

Infrared heat can greatly benefit the sore, damaged, or tired muscles of an athlete.  The heat penetrates the muscles, increasing blood circulation and assisting with muscle repair.  Infrared heat will also help in the reduction of lactic acids, allowing tight and worn-out muscles to relax and rejuvenate. 

7. Reduces Cellulite: 

Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise.  Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate. 

8. Anti-Aging & Skin Rejuvenation: 

Studies show that Infrared sauna usage reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet.  Sweating in the infrared sauna increases circulation, which revitalizes the skin, helps reduce pores, clear blemishes, stimulates collagen, and leaves you with a facial like glow after your sauna session. 

9. Wound Healing: 

Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth.  Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevent infection. 

10. Lower Blood Pressure: 

Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.  Scientific evidence shows that people who use an infrared sauna a couple times a week can lower their blood pressure. 

11. Improved Circulation: 

Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise.  Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
