The Many Potential Benefits of Far Infrared Sauna
Infrared therapy has been the subject of many clinical studies. It has been shown that far infrared has beneficial effects on the following:
Muscle and joint pain
The infrared rays suppress cramping; relieves arthritis pain, muscle pain and rheumatism. By increasing circulation, infrared sauna sessions oxygenate and bring nutrients to the tissues. This results in relaxed muscles and more responsive, healthier functioning tissue.
Calorie Burning/Weight Control
A 30 minute infrared Sweat Session burns 300 to 600 calories! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. The body’s response to its core temperature rising results in safe, passive cardiovascular conditioning and potential weight loss.
Cardiovascular & Blood Pressure
Based on research studies infrared sauna sessions reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, coronary vessel disorders, etc.). In addition, they lower blood pressure. The warming of the muscles produces a vascular dilation and causes an increase in blood flow; as in a physical training, vessel walls become more elastic. This process creates less resistance for the heart and therefore helps to safely condition the heart.
Improves skin texture, reduces wrinkle depth, gives a more radiant and younger looking skin, improves acne, pimples, blackheads, and dandruff. Helps to heal eczema, psoriasis, & helps reduce cellulite.
The warming of the body through infrared rays produced a vascular dilation which stimulates blood circulation. It then denotes a positive improvement on people who always have cold extremities.
Colds, Flu, Bronchitis and Asthma
The infrared heat increases the body’s resistance to infection and stop virus replication. The infrared sauna is proven effective in cases of pneumonia, bronchitis, colds and respiratory infections.
Nervous System Disorders
Infrared procedures have a calming effect on the nervous system against insomnia, stress, nervousness and nervous twitch.
You can plug in an iPod or listen to the room’s built-in sound therapy soundtrack for an increased experience. Many people enjoy meditating during their session and most people receive a feeling of refocus by the end of the session.
