Today’s busy lifestyles can prevent us from actively sweating on a daily basis, but numerous medical studies show that deep sweating has multiple health benefits.
Health Benefits of the Infrared Sauna
Pain Relief: The deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries;
Detoxification: Sweating in the infrared sauna takes the detoxifying load off your liver and kidneys by the direct elimination of toxins through the skin;
Weight Loss & Cardiovascular Fitness: As the body increases sweat production to cool itself, the heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate increase;
Athletic Performance: Athletes are using the infrared sauna to warm their muscles before and after working out, to prevent injuries and also to promote relaxation;
Boosts Immune System: By raising the core temperature, the infrared sauna improves the immune system, and stimulates the body’s own natural healing processes;
Improves Skin: Sweating in the infrared sauna carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and clean. Skin tone and elasticity are improved as well as relief from acne, eczema and psoriasis;
Clears Cellulite: Infrared sauna therapy can help clear cellulite—the gel like lumps of fat, water, and debris trapped in pockets beneath the skin—by increasing blood flow and removing stored toxins.
