With this technology, you can also lose weight, relax, improve circulation, relieve pain, and purify your skin. Keep reading to learn more how infrared saunas can benefit your body.
Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways of eliminating toxins. The build-up of toxic substances can lead to a host of common illnesses so ridding the body of these toxins can help relieve symptoms, prevent future illnesses and strengthen the body’s immune system.
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle and therapeutic heat that provides a deep tissue sweat leading to relaxation and improved sleep.
Heating the skin and muscles with infrared rays increases your core body temperature which will produce an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise.
Due to the ability of infrared saunas to penetrate the skin more deeply and increase your metabolic rate, one half-hour session can help the body burn off anywhere from 200-600 calories.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions.
Anti-Aging and Skin Purification
Infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce the look of wrinkles and can purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores resulting in clearer, softer and healthier-looking skin.
Research has found that infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and tissue growth while also preventing future infections.
If you’re looking for a simple way to lighten your toxic load and bring yourself back into balance, an infrared sauna may be a great way to achieve your wellness goals. Be sure to consult with your doctor before trying this type of therapy.
