It provides a quiet, reflective time for you or a relaxing
social environment for you and a few others.
Your body cools itself by sweating. To boost circulation to the skin to aid this sweating process, your heart has to work harder. Using an infrared sauna regularly may be equivalent to undertaking regular moderate exercise, increasing your heart rate and helping your cardiovascular fitness. As an infrared sauna heats your body without heating the surrounding air, it means that these results can be obtained at temperatures lower (and more tolerable) than those of conventional saunas.
Every single day our bodies are exposed to countless toxins via the environment we live and work in, together with the foods and drinks we consume. Sweating is one of the ways in which your body can eliminate these toxins and use of an infrared sauna encourages this process. The heat energy of an infrared sauna penetrates tissues to approximately 1.5 inches, helping to shift toxins, such as heavy metals, from fat cells which can then be removed by sweating.
Use of an infrared sauna provides an ideal opportunity for some well-deserved ‘me time’, allowing you to relax body and mind in a warm, comfortable environment.
By increasing blood flow to soft tissues and muscles, using a sauna helps to deliver oxygen and remove waste products to these tissues. This may help with sports injuries or aid recovery from training. Infrared sauna use may also help ease age-related joint pain and stiffness.
The increased blood flow to the skin from infrared sauna use may help aid healing of skin conditions e.g. psoriasis, acne and eczema. The detoxification resulting from increased sweating may also help improve the appearance of cellulite.
Fever has an important role in helping your body fight off bacterial and viral infections. By raising your body temperature slightly, using an infrared sauna may help boost your immune system.
We can supply further information, but we would always recommend that you check with your doctor before far infrared sauna use.
