Benefits of Infrared Sauna

SPORTS RECOVERY

Infrared therapy helps muscles to recover faster after periods of intense activity, greatly benefiting the sore and tired muscles of an athlete, The increase in blood circulation can assist with muscle repair and also help with the reduction of lactic acid so is perfect for athletes and sportspeople looking to recover faster, and enhance their performance.

TREATMENT OF CHRONIC DISEASE

Infrared sauna therapy can be beneficial in the treatment of chronic diseases such as Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease and many more through the deep heating and efficient detoxification it produces.

CELLULITE REDUCTION

Regular sauna use can stimulate blood flow to a rate of up to twice the normal rate, which is similar to that seen during exercise. The gentle infrared heat also penetrates much deeper than a traditional sauna and is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.

LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE & IMPROVE CIRCULATION

Infrared saunas produce a deep sweat, which makes the heart pump faster and increases blood flow. This lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Studies have shown that regular sauna use can lower blood pressure!

DETOXIFICATION

Infrared sauna heat increases blood flow and initiates sweating, which helps to release toxins which have built up throughout the body. Regular infrared sauna use can assist you in detoxifying your body from heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine and other harmful chemicals.

WEIGHT LOSS

Infrared sauna heat imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system as going for a run! Regular use may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning and calorie burning as regular exercise - studies have shown that a single session can burn up to 700 calories. 

PAIN RELIEF

The deep infrared heat stimulates circulation, bringing oxygen to tissues, muscles and joints and relieving aches and pains stemming from strain, overuse and just everyday movement, this can be beneficial for anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions.

SKIN REJUVINATION & ANTI-AGING

Infrared therapy has also been shown to boost the production of collagen and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The sweating that you will experience during a sauna session assists with removing imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving your skin with that post-sauna glow!

WOUND HEALING

Infrared is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. It has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and cuts. It also supports the body in healing wounds quickly, and as a result reduces scarring.

STRESS REDUCTION

Infrared saunas increase production of the happy hormones dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin and decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Unlike traditional saunas they provide a soothing heat that promotes relaxation and can improve the quality of your sleep. They also allow you to take a little time out for yourself and emerge feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!

IMMUNE BOOSTING

An infrared sauna session raises your core body temperature, inducing an artificial “fever” which, although often misunderstood, is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response. This immune boosting effect, combined with the elimination of toxins via sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
