A healthier YOU - 8 glorious benefits of infrared sauna therapy
If you want to feel better than ever and you are thinking about trying sauna therapy, then keep on reading. You might be surprised at all of the benefits sauna therapy has to offer to achieve both physically and emotionally. The benefits don’t stop there. With infrared sauna technology like you get with the Luxo Selva 4 Person Carbon Fibre Infrared Sauna, you can also relieve stress, unwanted pain, lose weight, and increase your circulation, just to name a few of the incredible benefits.
1.Enjoy Your Sauna Experience Longer
An infrared sauna offers basically the same benefits as other types of saunas. However, one big difference is you can stay inside the infrared sauna longer. The traditional kind of sauna is humid and gets very hot, where infrared saunas use radiant heat which is the same heat given off by the sun. But one of the wonderful benefits of a sauna use is it doesn’t give off ultraviolet rays like the sun does and it’s well known that ultraviolet rays can cause our bodies harm if over exposed. Sitting in an infrared spa actually feels like you’re lying in the sun without the blinding bright light, and it’s so comfortable you can stay inside much longer.
Toxins lodge in your cells, soft tissues, and muscles, and overwhelm your entire immune system. While it's impossible to avoid all of the toxins that come with modern life, you have the power to create balanced health. Some harmful toxic metals include lead, cadmium, mercury, aluminum, chlorine, and the list goes on. When toxins accumulate, they contribute to hundreds of physical and emotional health conditions. Where many of these toxins are coming from?
3.How do you take care of the toxins? Detoxify, detoxify, detoxify
Infrared saunas help release a number of toxins and impurities from your body, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. Perspiring is one of the only few ways to remove toxins. Spending 30 minutes in an infrared sauna on a regular basis allows a very deep and accelerated way to pull toxins from deep within the body tissues and remove potentially harmful toxins from your system. Some doctors prescribe a detoxification regimen to help individuals with symptoms from “sick building syndrome,” in which a person is adversely affected by chemicals used in modern construction materials. If the sauna can help people who are seriously ill due to toxic accumulations in the body, think of how the routine use of the sweat bath can improve overall health.
4. Do you suffer from pain?
Another great benefit of an infrared sauna is it can ease suffering from muscle aches or joint pain by reducing inflammation, increasing circulation, and relaxing your muscles. This happens when the body tissues are warmed because it relaxes the cells of your muscles and causes the blood vessels to widen. Dilating the blood vessels helps reduce muscle spasms, joint stiffness, achiness, as well as general aches and pains due to conditions like fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
5.What about stress relief?
Many sauna users claim that stress relief is one of the primary benefits of a sauna. We live in a fast-paced world, with plenty of opportunity for emotional overload. Sitting in a warm, dimly lit room-enjoying the quiet calm- seems to help the day-to-day worries melt away. Beyond the relaxation and increased release of endorphins, the calm restfulness induced by sauna makes for a good night’s sleep. This benefit has real value.
6. Weight Loss
The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate, the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss.
7. Improved Circulation
As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.
8. Skin Purification
Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.
