How Infrared Saunas Work
Unlike traditional saunas which heat the air and this heats the people, infrared saunas use harmless infrared light waves to penetrate the body and gently heat it from the inside. This heat relaxes the muscles, soothes away rheumatic pain and stimulates blood flow by increasing your heartrate. You still sweat like you would do in a normal sauna but, as the infrared sauna only heats you and not the air around you, the air you breath is a nice temperature and the warmth you feel is much more comfortable. Infrared is so safe, it’s used in hospitals to warm new born babies. Our infrared sauna has a light therapy function built in too which makes it an even more relaxing environment.
What Infrared Saunas Help With
Because of the relaxing effect, infrared saunas are very effective at treating the symptoms of stress and relieving muscle tension. This, along with the way it raises your heartrate, stimulates blood flow to promote healing and flush out toxins from the muscles. Therefore, infrared saunas can help with:
- Rheumatic pain
- Chronic pain
- Poor circulation
- High blood pressure
- Lowered immune system
They’ve also been shown to have the following benefits:
- Improved skin condition – the sweating opens and purifies pores while stimulating collagen production
- Weight loss – the heat and raised heart rate burn extra calories
- Relaxation – the ‘exercise effect’ releases endorphins and other feel good hormones
Infrared saunas have no negative side effects and are completely safe so you can try ours for any of the above conditions and more or just for a lovely relaxing experience which leaves you with the same feeling as doing moderate exercise.
