Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun's spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health and anti-aging benefits, minus the dangerous UV-rays. An infrared sauna heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air around you like a traditional sauna, it raises the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside.
Infrared light is divided into near, middle, and far regions that are based on the different sizes in infrared wavelengths. Near-infrared levels are best for wound healing, skin health, and increased immune function. Middle-infrared levels are ideal for increasing circulation and promoting muscle relaxation. Far-infrared levels are used primarily for detoxification purposes. Unlike many infrared saunas which offer only far-infrared light, our full range infrared sauna allows you to receive the benefits of all three light ranges.
Detoxing the body - Heat increases blood flow by expanding the capillaries that carry blood. Raising the body’s core temperature in turn produces sweat to help regulate the body. When the body is heated internally, and blood is flowing it also increases oxygenation and regeneration of the blood. In turn, sweating not only helps to cool the body but also purges the body of heavy metals and other toxins, particularly toxins stored in the fatty tissues.
Reduce Stress - Unlike traditional steam saunas that operate at extremely high temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing, and therapeutic heat. Sit back and enjoy an invigorating deep tissue sweat that will leave you feeling refreshed after each session.
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.
Weight Loss - Studies have shown that an average infrared sauna session can burn as many as 600 calories! As your body is working hard to cool itself, an elevation in your heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate.
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.
Improve Circulation - Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow like that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Anti-Aging - The near infrared wavelength 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.
Skin Conditions and Wound Healing - By sweating regularly and profusely, toxins are eliminated through the sebaceous glands instead of them coming out via dead skin cells. Infrared light 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.
Improve Cell Health and Autoimmune Support - Infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. The increase in body temperature during an infrared session stimulates the body’s natural immune response. This increased 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.
