Infrared Therapy for Mind +Body

Immune Boost

When used properly, a sauna helps our body's natural defenses become activated and primed. 
The sweat glands produce an increased number of antibodies that fight off viruses and infections while increasing circulation in the blood vessels.
Your body heats up deeper, which means you get a deeper bodily cleanse while sweating out toxins more effectively. Infrared wavelengths can detoxify organs such as the liver, kidneys, heart, and lungs.

Weight Loss

Infrared saunas can help you sweat out toxins and lose weight by stimulating the body's natural detoxification systems and processes. 
The infrared light (non visible spectrum) penetrates deep into tissue and gently warms up the cells, causing them to release their stored water content as sweat.
This type of treatment has very few side effects, making it one of the healthiest ways to detoxify your body naturally.
Infrared rays have been shown to increase metabolism as well as reduce inflammation in muscles and joints. This infrared heat releases toxins from your body through sweat which can also help with weight loss.

Heart Health

When you enter an infrared sauna, you will experience a gentle increase in internal temperature, which causes the skin’s blood vessels to dilate and allow more blood flow to circulate. This tends to relax tense muscles and improve general circulation throughout the body.
In a small UK study, people who use an infrared sauna twice a week, along with aerobic exercises such as walking or jogging, had 30% less blockage in their arteries after 9 months than those who only exercised.
This means not just better blood flow to your heart (and other organs) but also a reduced risk of stroke, angina and heart attack.

Lung Function

An infrared sauna is a type of dry heat therapy that can be used to improve lung function. 
As it heats the body from within, this has been shown to help with asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, and other respiratory conditions by improving airflow in the lungs. 
Infrared saunas use electromagnetic waves that penetrate deep into the skin tissues to create heat. This heat is absorbed by the body's lymphatic fluid which helps eliminate toxins from your cells.

Anti-Inflammatory

The infrared light in the sauna penetrates your skin and heats up the muscles deep within your body which stimulates blood circulation to those areas, reducing pain and stiffness that are associated with inflammation.
It is an anti-inflammatory agent and helps reduce inflammation by heating up your body. 
This causes muscles to relax and joints to loosen which can help alleviate symptoms associated with the conditions mentioned above. Inflammation is a major factor in chronic diseases, such as arthritis, heart disease, and cancer.

Mood Uplift

Infrared heat penetrates deeper into the muscle tissue, stimulating blood circulation.
It also increases airflow to lung tissues by dilating the bronchioles, improving overall oxygen intake, and allowing for better breathing patterns, this has been shown to improve mood disposition and reduce stress levels.
The heat will help you naturally sweat - releasing trace toxins, relaxing the muscles and joints, and elevating circulation. 
Regular infrared saunas provide a sense of well-being by boosting the production of serotonin.

Back Pain Relief 

Once the blood flow increases, it reduces inflammation in the spinal column, leading to reduced sensitivity in this extremely delicate area (myelin enhancing).
Again the sauna creates a soothing environment that allows muscles to relax and reduces stress on joints, bones, ligaments, and tendons while speeding up muscle recovery time.
*It's important to note that people with cardiovascular disease or very high blood pressure should consult their doctor before using a sauna, this is due to the increase in heartbeat and blood pressure

Joint Pain Relief

Infrared saunas can also help with relieving the pain in your joints by gently warming them up and increasing blood flow.
The best way to describe this is that it heats up the joints from the inside - like when you’re sitting in the sun on a soothing summer’s day.
This process allows for faster heat circulation and deeper penetration than traditional steam-filled saunas, making them ideal for relieving joint pain associated with arthritis.
These are some of the amazing benefits of infrared heat therapy.
