How Does Infrared Sauna and Hot Yoga Work?
Hot yoga and infrared sauna sessions are a great way to improve your wellness, and overall flexibility.
The infrared heat loosens up tight muscles and tendons, which often leads to better suppleness, agility and balance.
Yoga in an infrared sauna cabin compounds the benefits both of these excellent treatments can achieve alone.
Stress reduction can also aid in creating longer-term well-being because it helps the mind become more present and at peace with itself.
It allows for better self-care practices that reduce stress levels even further over time!
Detoxification occurs as heavy sweating helps flush toxins from the pores on top of boosting internal organ function, all while still being safe enough for beginners.
Studies have shown that far infrared sauna therapy can help relieve pain, especially for muscle and joint related issues.
Far-infrared heat penetrates through layers of skin tissue to reach nerve endings, (50-70mm below the skin) providing relief from discomfort and micro muscle spasms making you feel more relaxed as your body heals itself.
