Removes Toxins and Mineral Waste
Radiant energy produced by the infrared sauna heats the user, creating increased blood circulation. This increased blood flow stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Regular sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.
The deep heat from the sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue
injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion.
Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness
In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. In addition, it has been
proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.
Improves the Immune System
A sauna’s deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the “fever,” your body’s immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes produced by the intense sweating, your overall health and resistance to disease is increased.
Promotes Healthy Looking Skin
While in the sauna, your blood vessels expand resulting in better blood flow. During the increased blood flow, more nutrients
are able to reach the skin. You come out of the sauna with glowing, healthier looking skin. Infrared saunas help clear cellulite,
the gel-like lumps of fat, water and debris trapped in pockets beneath the skin. The radiant heat of the infrared sauna warms three times as deeply as conventional saunas, making it significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.
Increases Blood Circulation and Strengthens the Cardiovascular System
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.
Burns Calories and Controls Weight
As you relax in the gentle heat of the sauna, your body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, in a single sauna session you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes. So you lose weight – not just water.
Relief from Mild Depression (SAD)
Radiant rays penetrate through the skin down to the subcutaneous tissue. This causes blood vessels and capillaries to dilate producing an overall increase in blood circulation. This increased blood flow stimulates the hypothalamus which is reponsible for the production of neuro chemicals. These chemicals control sleep, mood, appetite, pain and blood pressure. Clinical studies have shown improvement in all patients with SAD (seasonal affective disorder) when they followed a series of Infrared Sauna treatments.
