Warm up to better health! Infrared saunas enhance our well-being on many levels by using the same gentle rays as natural sunlight.
Infrared saunas heat the body directly instead of the air by duplicating the healthy warming rays of the sun. These rays are transmitted deep into the body while maintaining a comfortable temperature that does not overheat the skin and respiratory system like traditional saunas. This means that you can enjoy the benefits longer.
Heat causes our cells to release toxins into our lymphatic system. The sweating induced by this deep warming removes them from the body as our sweat is largely manufactured from lymphatic fluids. As toxins pass through the skin the workload on our liver and kidneys for detoxification is reduced.
Clears and cleans skin
Increased circulation and sweating stimulated by the heat pushes imbedded toxins out through previously blocked pores. Old and dead skin cells are released leaving the skin clean and refreshed. The sweating out of acid wastes also alleviates acne, eczema and psoriasis while improving skin tone and elasticity, and providing a healthy glow.
Enhances weight loss
As our body increases sweat production to cool itself our heart rate rises to pump blood and increase circulation. This burns calories in addition to the water lost as sweat. While the water should be replaced by drinking plenty of fluids, the calories will not, helping us lose weight. The increase in heat also helps break down pockets of cellulite.
A cardiovascular boost
The increase in heart rate conditions our heart, while our diastolic blood pressure drops as our blood vessels dilate. NASA has determined that infrared saunas may be useful in maintaining astronauts’ fitness during long periods in space, when other forms of exercise are difficult to perform.
Dilation and relaxation of blood vessels, detoxification and muscular relaxation also facilitate a reduction in the pain response. One element of our feeling discomfort is how our body responds to any given stimulus. Infrared saunas assist in relaxing and dampening any reaction to these stimuli, reducing pain.
Infrared saunas have been shown to improve our immune response by stimulating an increase in the number of white blood cells. The rise in body temperature also mimics fever which supports our body’s attack on foreign bacteria and viruses.
Boost athletic performance
Infrared heat warms and promotes the relaxation of muscles. Using an infrared sauna before and after events improves warm ups, prevents injury and helps to decrease and remove lactic acid – a product of intense exercise. Using the sauna at any time enhances training results and recovery.
Enjoying an infrared sauna until you sweat, as frequently as possible, will enhance detox, while improving weight loss, clearing complexion and strengthening immunity. Spend some time warming yourself up to glowing inner and outer health.
