Benefits of Infrared Saunas
Sweating is the safe and natural way for your body to heal and stay healthy. Infrared sauna use benefits the body by heating it directly causing a rise in the body core temperature resulting in a detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where toxins are stored.
Infrared sauna therapy also stimulates the circulatory system, delivering fully oxygenated blood to the body’s cells. Better circulation allows more toxins to flow from the cellular level to the skin surface, increasing cell health, aids in injury recovery, and strengthens the immune system.
Unlike traditional steam saunas, Infrared saunas produce a gentle, soothing, and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation.
Lower Blood Pressure
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat that makes the heart pump faster, which increases the blood flow, lowers blood pressure, and helps circulation. Evidence has shown that using an infrared sauna two times a week may help lower blood pressure.
Anti-Aging & Skin Purification
The infrared light wavelength is the most effective wavelength for healing the skin. The infrared wavelength stimulates collagen production to improve overall skin health.
Numerous studies have shown that infrared sauna sessions can burn upwards of 600 calories in a single 30-40 minute session. As your body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, circulation, and an increase in metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Infrared heat penetrates deep into tissues, joints, and muscles to help relieve minor aches and pains to chronic pain. Incorporating infrared heat into your treatment plans to help decrease pain, muscle spasms, and to speed recovery time.
