There has been a considerable amount of talk going around about infrared saunas and their health benefits. For those of you who are sceptical of this new technology, it may interest you to know what to expect from infrared sauna therapy.
Here are a few of the health benefits that this new technology has to offer:
- Better Circulation
Far Infrared energy creates a resonance in the cellular activity which then invigorates the body, creating better blood circulation and improving metabolic functioning. By doing this, you allow your body to work at its optimum performance level and this results in having more energy throughout the day.
- Weight Loss
Infrared saunas do not cause weight loss – rather they help in the maintenance of your metabolism. When relaxing in a sauna, you are quickening the metabolic processes of your organs and glands resulting in a caloric loss.
However, this loss is mostly water. When you combine a regular diet, exercise and frequent sauna trips, you are allowing your body to shed more calories in a healthy way. This can be said of any weight loss regime – separated they can help you momentarily, but together they help you achieve your weight loss goals.
Heat from infrared saunas stimulates blood vessels when then bring oxygen to your joints. When the oxygen reaches your injury, the healing is sped up.
The heat will also relieve the pain you are experiencing from your joints and muscles. Whether you are suffering from chronic pain, arthritis or fibromyalgia – a sauna may be your answer to relief. By relaxing in the sauna, you are helping in the speedy recovery from injuries.
