Infra-Red Saunas

Aug 17, 2007
As you relax in the gentle heat of an infra-red sauna, your body is hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. Conventional saunas need high air temperature to pull impurities from the body, but our infrared heated sauna can directly penetrate up to 45 mm inside the body for a great detox treatment.

Infrared sauna heat therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy skin tone and texture. The profuse sweating deeply cleanses the pores. Increased circulation has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, and cuts. Wounds heal faster, which reduces scarring. Blood vessels dilate to help heal muscles and soft tissue while delivering oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles. This also helps soothe muscles after a strenuous work out.

Typical sweat produced under normal conditions contains 97% water and 3% toxins. Sweat produced from an infrared sauna is found to be 80-85% water and 15-20% toxins. Infrared saunas can assist treating cellulite (a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes which are trapped in pockets below the skin) as profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body. European beauty specialists confirm that infrared sauna sessions will greatly speed any anti-cellulite program! As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, providing the benefits of continuous exercise. The heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rates increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops for improved overall cardiovascular fitness.

According to a journal of the American Medical Association report, a 20-30 minute session creates approximately the same amount of perspiration as a six-mile run, so you can loose weight not just water. While the weight of the water loss can be regained by hydration with water, the calories consumed will not be.

Infra-red sauna therapy has a beneficial effect on metabolism and cardiovascular conditioning. A session in the sauna doubles the flow of blood to all the tissues of the body and exercises the heart. -This is comparable to a similar time of exercise, although no muscle conditioning will result. This is useful as an augmentation to a regular exercise routine and is a good substitute for those who can't exercise.

The infra-red sauna is a valuable tool in any weight-loss program., we routinely used the sauna for its excellent calorie burning effects. A sauna can accelerate weight loss in a person who is already exercising and following a sensible and healthy alkaline diet. A half-hour session can burn up to 600 calories. Therefore, two sessions a day of 45 minutes each can burn up to 1800 calories, per day, which is equivalent to almost two hours of vigorous aerobic exercise.

The sauna improves blood circulation to the skin and results in a deep pore cleansing. This results in an improved skin tone and elasticity. Regular users are said to have more youthful skin that "glows." People with chronic skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema will benefit from regular sauna sessions. If the person is heat sensitive, the temperature of the sauna can be turned down to a level that the person can tolerate. Burn victims and people with scars can also benefit from the improved healing of the skin.

Infrared saunas are often used to treat:

Arthritis
Sprains
Neuralgia
Muscle spasm
Joint stiffness
Fibromyalgia

Due to the many physiological effects of heat therapy, people feel less stressed after a sauna session. A sauna session relaxes muscles, circulates the blood, stimulates the heart, and releases endorphins, providing a feeling of invigoration. People report being able to sleep better after their sauna sessions.
