An infrared sauna uses light energy to warm your body without heating the air surrounding you. This creates a comfortable sauna experience while providing an array of powerful health and wellness benefits.
Infrared saunas offer help with many common health and wellness concerns, with some of the major benefits including:
Infrared saunas can help relieve stress and tension by balancing your body’s level of cortisol (the “stress hormone”). This ultimately provides relaxation and a general sense of well-being.
By stimulating blood flow and improving circulation, infrared saunas can help your blood effectively deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout your body.
Infrared sauna sessions bring on a cleansing sweat, which removes toxins and impurities from your body.
Infrared heat stimulates the release of endorphins — nature’s own pain relievers. Multiple studies have shown that infrared saunas may help with fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, chronic lower back pain, and other types of musculoskeletal conditions.
Your immune system helps you fight illness and stay healthy. Infrared heat can keep the immune system active and improve overall immune function.
Infrared saunas can raise your body’s core temperature, stimulate fat burning, speed up your metabolism, and promote weight loss.
Infrared heat promotes circulation and cellular regeneration, which leads to improved skin health and enhanced appearance.
Infrared saunas trigger the release of muscle tension throughout your body. This puts you in a heightened state of relaxation that enhances your sleep.
Studies are also investigating the potential benefits of infrared sauna for people with heart failure, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic conditions.
Even if you don’t have specific treatment goals, infrared sauna sessions can help enhance your overall sense of well-being. Infrared sauna sessions complement many other types of holistic health care, such as intravenous (IV) therapy, mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and professional-grade supplements.
While a regular sauna can provide good results, similar to the results you expect from a strenuous workout, it can be very uncomfortable because it’s incredibly hot. An infrared sauna gives you the same great results while using far less heat.
