Reduce pain.. Reduce weight.. Detox and have beautiful skin with an infrared sauna.
Infrared saunas have numerous health benefits. Differing from traditional saunas, infrared saunas warm your body directly rather than through the use of hot air, leaving you to enjoy the sauna experience without humidity and steam. ‘Infrared heat’ has nothing to do with ultraviolet light that causes sun burn or skin damage. It is simply a form of energy transmitted at a specific wavelength. This gentle type of heat penetrates the body, causing sweating to occur. Sweating moves toxins and waste products out of our cells and tissues, detoxifying us.
As we perspire, our skin pores open and waste products and old cells are shed, leaving the skin glowing with an improved vigour, tone and elasticity. Roughness is replaced by smoothness and suppleness. Infrared saunas can help to break down scars from incisions, eczema, psoriasis, acne, even keloids can be softened over time.
Infrared Saunas are the ultimate in fat burning. For an average conditioned person, a 30 minute session can burn up to 1000 calories, the equivalent of going for a 10 – 15km run! As the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) states:
As sweat production is increased, your heart works harder to pump blood, boosting your circulation, mimicking the benefits of continuous exercise. When skipping regular exercise due to illness or allowing injuries to heal, saunas are fantastic in helping to maintain cardiovascular conditioning. Research shows that stretching after a 30 minute session produces a permanent increase in your flexibility. Saunas are a great way to warm up for exercise to help prevent injury. As tissues are warmed, muscles readily relax allowing for greater flexibility and range of motion. After exercise, infrared saunas aid with oxygen debt recovery and faster healing of muscle pains through increased circulation, delivering oxygen rich blood to body tissues.
“Regular use of a sauna may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.”- JAMA.
Saunas are helpful for many musculoskeletal ailments including sprains, strains, arthritis, muscle spasm and for helping relieve stiffness and soreness. The deep infrared heat dilates blood vessels, bringing nutrients to muscle and soft tissue injuries, and removing metabolic wastes. Arthritic complaints can be relieved.
Infrared saunas are a great way to detoxify. Deep penetrating heat causes toxins to be released from cells into our lymph, releasing them via our sweat, taking the detoxifying load off your liver and kidneys. Perhaps the most immediate effect you will notice is pure relaxation, as stress and tension simply melts away, helping you feel rejuvenated, renewed and restored.
