Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas eliminate more than seven times more toxins - leaving you fully refreshed and rejuvenated after each session.
Studies have shown that an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
A fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response. By safely heating the body internally, infrared saunas mimic fever-state causing higher immunity. Combined with the improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, frequent infrared sauna use increases overall health and resistance to disease.
Heating the muscles with infrared light produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Infrared saunas promote blood flow and circulation and reduce inflammation, which promotes physical relief from muscle aches and joint pain.
The far-infrared wavelength (sometimes referred to as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Far-infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
Infrared light helps to balance cortisol levels, the body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing deep levels of relaxation.
