How is an infrared sauna different than a traditional sauna?
Infrared saunas use an electromagnetic wave called infrared to heat the human body and provide benefits like pain reduction and weight loss. Unlike a regular sauna where the air is heated, the heat from the infrared sauna goes directly to the body. This increases the body’s core temperature, providing a deeper results. Benefits of infrared sauna use include body detoxification through sweat, improved circulation due to dilated blood vessels and relaxation.
Infrared saunas make use of the far infrared rays to warm the body on a deeper level. Since the air is usually not heated by the rays as typical in traditional saunas, the heating chamber is generally very breathable and is not nearly as musky as traditional saunas.
What are the benefits of Using an Infrared Sauna?
- Detoxification – One of the most important benefits of an infrared sauna is the removal of harmful waste from the human body. The body detoxifies itself regularly through sweating. Sweating is surprisingly beneficial to the human body. It is one of the few ways in which the body gets rid of toxic waste from the bloodstream. Therefore, the more you sweat, the more you get rid of toxic wastes and prevent buildup. An infrared sauna, like an intense workout session, takes the detoxification process up a notch and makes the body flush out harmful toxins faster by sweating profusely for an extended period of time.
- Increase Metabolism and Weight Loss – When our bodies get hot, they immediately try to find a way to cool off. This process results in a higher metabolism and you burn more calories. By sweating it out in an infrared chamber, you activate your blood circulation system to become more active and circulate more efficiently, thereby improving blood flow and pressure.
- Pain Reduction – Heat therapy is often used to relieve things like sore muscles and joint pain and stiffness. The results are comparable to using a heating bad for a bad back or athletic injury.
- Stress and Anxiety Relief – Infrared chambers tend to have calming and relaxing effects on users. As such, it can be helpful in providing relief from depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders.
Are Infrared Saunas Safe?
Yes! Infrared saunas have no known side effects besides increased sweating during use, which is actually one of the benefits. Infrared saunas mimic the heating effect of the sun without the harmful UV rays that cause skin cancer, making them a much safer option.
