Benefits: Increased circulation and lymphatic drainage, detoxifying the system, mild cardiovascular workout, and improved tissue healing.
An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters that penetrate the skin 1.5 inches to heal and stimulate the tissue. Unlike traditional saunas that heat water over heated rocks to create steam, infrared saunas only heat the skin of the occupant and not the air surrounding the skin making it a much more efficient method of sauna.
The benefits of an infrared sauna include body detoxification, treatment for arthritis, skin and scar tissue repair, relief from joint stiffness and pain, and stress reduction. It can also improve the appearance of cellulite and acts as a low impact cardiovascular workout. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat to help you detoxify, pumping blood, and burning calories. (up to 600 calories in one session) As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart will work harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories. This improved circulation also helps to boost the immune system.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, “Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a Sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and it’s regular use may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.” “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300kcal, which is equivalent to running 2-3 miles. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600-800kcal with no adverse effects.”
