What are the benefits of an infrared sauna?
Infrared saunas are a very effective mechanism for natural healing and prevention. The key is the infrared light, as it has the ability to penetrate human tissue producing a host of anti-aging health benefits and other numerous advantages:
Detoxification: It happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Relaxation (sleep improvement): Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep.
Weight loss: It promotes weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort.
Pain relief: Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.
Blood pressure reduction: Sunlighten infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.
Improved circulation: Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid infrared range – can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Anti-aging: The near infrared wavelengths are the most effective wavelengths for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
Cell health, muscle recovery and immunity: Near infrared light 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.
