Weight Loss & Increased Metabolism
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system as running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories.
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories.
Muscle Pain Relief
Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. Muscles relax best when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion. Far Infrared heat relieves muscle tension. The deep heat of far infrared saunas help peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Infrared heat also reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated.
Immune System Boost
The deep heating will raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. How does this benefit the body? Fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection.
This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
One of the biggest infrared sauna health benefits is its ability to increase your blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins in the body. Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.
Improves Appearance of Cellulite
Cellulite refers to superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling. Common, but not exclusive areas where cellulite is found are the buttocks, thighs, and the abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, and the appearance of cellulite is not always reduced by weight loss. There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use and far infrared heat can increase heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Ease Joint Pain & Stiffness
Time spent in an infrared sauna benefits patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. Radiant heat has also been effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.
Stress & Fatigue Reduction
Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna will help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed.
Steam Shower Therapy
Steam showers provide a relaxing atmosphere of moist heat that promotes health and wellness. In addition to comfort and a positive influence on mood, steam has therapeutic benefits for the muscular, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
Muscle Relaxation Steam showers generate moist, heat which widens blood vessels releasing tension in aching muscles by allowing more oxygen to flow through the muscle tissue.
Respiratory Health Those suffering from respiratory problems find relief in steam therapy as it soothes throat irritation, loosens phlegm in the lungs and loosens mucous.
Skin Rejuvenation Steam hydrates the skin pores and more efficient blood circulation from a steam shower gives skin a healthy glow.
Detoxification The soothing warmth of steam opens pores. Sweating profusely, the skin on the body releases toxins from everyday living.
Stress Relief The heat and moisture combination in steam rooms offer a relaxing atmosphere to calm the mind and lower stress levels.
Better Sleep There is a correlation between steam therapy and quality sleep patterns. Relaxing for 20 minutes at the end of the day in a steam shower regulates the body’s core temperature and increases blood flow.
