WHAT IS INFRARED HEAT THERAPY?
Sweating is your body's natural way of staying healthy. Our infrared sauna pods are designed to give you a relaxing detoxifying experience through the use of infrared heat.
Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. The experience of an infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. The infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Unlike sunbathing, infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in an infrared sauna and it will never cause your skin to burn.
Infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. Conventional hot rock/steam heat saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes the air difficult to breath. An infrared sauna uses soothing dry infrared heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing. Infrared heat therapy has also been proven to assist with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and skin rejuvenation.
Infrared heath therapy has also been associated with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation, and skin rejuvenation. However, it is a very different experience from a traditional hot rock/steam sauna.
WHAT ARE SOME HEALTH BENEFITS OF INFRARED HEAT THERAPY?
Detoxification- Detoxing in an infrared sauna rids your body of up to 10 times more toxins. In an infrared sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water. In a traditional sauna, the average person only sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water.
Pain Relief- Infrared heat therapy can treat minor aches and pains and improve chronic conditions such as arthritis. Research shows that conditions classified as Heat Responsive Pain (HRP), such as upper body and lower back pain, improve dramatically with the use of continuous, low-level heat therapy.
Weight Loss- You can burn up to 600 calories in a 30-minute infrared sauna session! During an infrared sauna session, the body works to cool itself which results in an increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Using an infrared sauna also helps to rise core body temperature, causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body will then naturally increase circulation and sweat.
Lowers Blood Pressure- Research shows that blood pressure lowers when using infrared saunas on a regular basis. Consistent infrared heat therapy repairs blood vessel function in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Improves Circulation- Infrared treatments increase blood flow and heat muscles as if you are exercising. During an infrared sauna session, your body temperature is elevated and blood flow increases. The improved circulation helps to eliminate inflammation and edema, decrease pain, and accelerate healing.
Skin Purification- Regular infrared sauna sessions will improve your skins appearance. Infrared heat therapy helps to correct skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis, and heal burns or other wounds. It also reduces wrinkles by improving skin tone and elasticity. with the increase in blood flow, a decrease in cellulite is also possible.
