Why use an Infrared Sauna?
Traditional saunas, steam baths, hot tubs and exercise are widely known means of sweating. Traditional saunas that operate at 170 degrees are difficult to tolerate for more than a few minutes. Also, conventional saunas need a high air temperature to pull impurities from your body.
Infrared saunas remain at 110-120 degrees F to spend longer periods of time in the healing process, while relaxing and listening to music. With infrared saunas, impurities are pushed out of the body using lower and more comfortable temperatures. In fact, infrared saunas are proven effective at the temperature range of 105-140 degrees F.
Infrared heat is simply a form of energy that is directly transmitted ONTO objects. The heat warms the entire body up to 1 inch deep beneath the skin and heats your body just as the sun does.
REMOVE TOXINS AND MINERAL WASTE
Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing the built-up toxins and waste that your body trapped in the fatty layers just beneath your skin.
BURN CALORIES AND HELP WEIGHT LOSS
Your body must expend energy (calories) to produce sweat, so in a single sauna session you can burn as many calories as you would jogging for 30 minutes.
The deep heat of an infrared sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries.
INCREASE CIRCULATION, STRENGTHEN CARDIOVASCULAR AND IMMUNE SYSTEM
As your body produces sweat to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a great rate to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning effects of exercise. Heat exposure to the skin stimulates production of white blood cells and strengthens immune system.
EASE ARTHRITIS AND JOINT STIFFNESS
In Europe, radiant heat is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis, and has proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, fibromyalgia, bursitis, muscle spasms and many other muscular skeletal ailments.
Since infrared heat penetrates three times as deeply as traditional saunas, it is more effective at breaking up the gel-like lumps of fat, water and debris trapped in pockets beneath the skin and allowing your body to eliminate the waste through sweat.
IMPROVE SKIN TONE AND FLEXIBILITY
The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in an infrared sauna carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, not only leaving your skin glowing and immaculately clean, but also giving you improved skin tone, elasticity, texture and color.
