Recovery - Performance - Longevity
A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An Infrared Sauna uses light to create heat. An Infrared Sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you.
Sauna’s generally cause reactions like what you experience with moderate exercise, including sweating and increased heart rate. An infrared sauna produces these results at much lower temperatures than traditional saunas. So you don’t need to tolerate the very high heat of a conventional sauna to pursue the following benefits.
Sweating is good for you. It is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Infrared sauna detoxification helps your body eliminate toxins through the its biggest organ: the skin.
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at what some consider to be harsh temperatures, infrared is a more gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation. Help your body maintain healthy cortisol levels and generally de-stress, even while you enjoy a good book, read a magazine, listen to your music or just sit quietly or meditate. Many users report improvement in mood and mental well-being after a sauna.
Relief of Discomfort
One of the most sought after benefits associated with this therapy is relief of muscle soreness or joint stiffness. Infrared heat can penetrate tissue, joints and muscles to relieve minor aches and pains, decrease muscle spasms, and shorten recovery time.
Enjoying the Infrared Sauna before exercise can improve flexibility, increase performance and quicken recovery.
Infrared light can help restore skin to a youthful appearance. Near infrared light stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.
Cardiac and Circulatory System Function
Routine use of saunas can contribute to lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure over time. While in the sauna, your heart rate increases and blood vessels dilate. The promotes improved oxygenation of your cells.
Infrared Sauna as Therapy vs Medical Treatment
Infrared Sauna is embraced as a valuable and useful therapy that can potentially provide significant benefits for our clients. This is not the same as being an “approved treatment” in the world of western medicine. But, the quote below from the website of the reputable Mayo Clinic provides encouragement:
“Several studies have looked at using infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, headache, type 2 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, and found some evidence of benefit. However, larger and more-rigorous studies are needed to confirm these results. Some of these studies were also performed with patients using traditional sauna
On the other hand, no adverse effects have been reported with infrared saunas. So if you’re considering trying a sauna for relaxation, an infrared sauna might be an option.”
