Infrared sauna therapy uses infrared waves to detoxify and refresh the body. Infrared light penetrates deeply into tissues inducing sweat that eliminates toxic substances. Infrared sauna therapy has many benefits such as detoxification, purifying of the skin, relaxation, improved heart function and relieving of pain, among others.
The benefits of infrared sauna are produced at lower temperatures compared to the conventional saunas. Therefore infrared sauna therapy can be tolerated by people who cannot endure very high heats. The following are the benefits of infrared sauna therapy:
Do you know that infrared saunas enable you to release up to seven times more toxins than the conventional sauna? During an infrared sauna session, toxins are removed from your body through sweating. Heavy metals such as lead and mercury and other toxins such as xenobiotic get eliminated from your body in a 30 minute session.
Loss of weight
Infrared sauna therapy reduces your weight in a simple way. Heat generated by the infrared light raises the temperature of the body which increases heart rate. When your body works to lower the temperature, it ends up burning calories. A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn 600 calories.
If you suffer from joints diseases such as arthritis, then this is best sauna therapy for you. Infrared sauna relieves pain in the joints by improving circulation within the joints and the associated muscle tissues. This removes lactic acid and other toxins from the tissues while ensuring flow of nutrients into the joints.
Improved cardiovascular health
Heat produced by the infrared light increases the temperature of the body which raises the heart rate. Your blood vessels raise their temperatures and speed of action to match that of the heart. The heat produced burns the atheroma in the walls of the blood vessels thereby improving flow of blood. Your heart will not overwork itself to pump blood because of reduced resistance in the blood vessels.
If you are wishing to have clearer, softer and healthier looking skin, then infrared is the perfect therapy. Infrared wavelengths increase the production of collagen and elastin which make the skin supple and elastic. The heat produced during sauna sessions improves the delivery of nutrients to the skin due to increased blood flow. This makes your skin to glow and look refreshed.
Stress is a part of everyday life and can have a negative effect in our bodies. The hormone cortisol is responsible for high stress levels in your body. Infrared sauna therapy relaxes the body by reducing the levels of the hormone in the body. The heat generated also relaxes the muscles by improving the flow of blood within the tissues. The overall result is reduced tension in the body which is more relaxing.
Infrared sauna therapy can be used to treat many pain related diseases because of its heat generating properties that improve blood flow in the body. It is also proven to reduce blood pressure which makes it beneficial to the heart. The skin also looks healthier due to opening of the pores and elimination of toxins. These are the reasons why I recommend infrared sauna therapy to everyone.
