There are so many incredible benefits from attending regular infrared sauna sessions. The gentle rise of your core body temperature causes a rise in your heart rate, increasing blood flow and stimulating the lymphatic, immune and cardiovascular systems.
Sweating is the body’s reaction to a raised core temperature and will jump start your immune system and help your body release toxins and unnecessary salts, improving your body’s overall health and resistance to disease.
