What is an Infrared Sauna?
An infrared sauna is similar to a traditional sauna that you might find in the gym or at a spa, however, unlike a traditional sauna, it uses a heat source that omits infrared light waves.
Infrared light penetrates the skin, increasing the temperature in the body, but it doesn’t actually increase the temperature of the air around you. This means that many people who can’t usually tolerate the very high heats of a traditional sauna or steam room, can comfortably sit in an infrared sauna for much longer and, therefore, can fully enjoy the benefits.
The infrared light waves create heat in the body, which causes you to sweat. Sweating allows your body to release many harmful toxins through the pores.
The heat from the infrared sauna encourages blood flow and increases circulation in the body, which can accelerate healing, as well as reducing inflammation and delivering more nutrients to the skin and vital organs.
Improve your skin
Research has shown that regular infrared sauna sessions can brighten the skin, reduce wrinkles and improve the overall tone and texture. The boost in circulation can also help to clear up skin concerns such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories! As circulation is stimulated, both the heart rate and metabolic rate also increase, burning calories in a similar way to a cardio work out.
Through increased circulation, inflammation can be significantly reduced, which in turn reduces pain. The increase in blood flow also allows for more oxygen to reach the cells in the body, speeding up the healing process. This makes infrared therapy a great option for athletes who wish to speed up their recovery time after training.
Stress relief and relaxation
As the body senses the increase in circulation and blood flow during an infrared sauna session, it naturally starts to relax, producing less cortisol, which is known as the “stress hormone”.
