9 Benefits of Infrared Sauna

Sweating is your body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Many of us feel better after a “good sweat.” So how does sauna provide the same feel good benefits and more? Far infrared sauna benefits your body by heating it directly, causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. Find out just how good infrared sauna can be for you.

    1. Detoxification:
      Far infrared heats the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature and resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where those nasty toxins reside.
    2. Relaxation: Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. It helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
    3. 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 using an infrared sauna a couple times a week actually lowers your blood pressure.
    4. Anti-Aging & Skin Purification: While no one can claim a true fountain of youth, the near infrared wavelength (sometimes referred to as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
    5. Weight Loss: Studies have shown that 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.
    6. 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 in order to decrease pain and muscle spasms and speed up recovery time.
    7. Improved Circulation: Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid IR range – can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
    8. Wound Healing: Scientific research has found 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.
    9. Cell Health: Near infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
