What Are The Benefits of The Infrared Sauna?

Updated: Sep 21, 2021

Curious about Infrared Saunas? This mood-enhancing box does a lot more than make you sweat. These saunas are specially designed with infrared heat lamps to draw out almost 20% more toxins than regular saunas.

What Are Infrared Saunas?

Infrared Saunas differ from standard saunas in that they use infrared heating elements. The elements or bulb produce a dry heat that is 100-150 degrees Fahrenheit. This is cooler than typical saunas, which start at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

This light penetrates deep past the skin and muscles. The light wavelengths, in a way, heat you from the inside out. This heat is a different heat than we are used to. The experience is more comfortable than sitting in regular saunas.

What Are The Benefits of Infrared Saunas?

There are so many benefits of infrared saunas. It’s one of the easiest ways to promote health throughout your whole body. All you have to do is it there, and the sauna therapy does the work for you. Here are just a few fantastic benefits:

  • Detox

  • Relaxation

  • Stress reduction

  • Weight loss

  • Relief of sore, achy muscles

  • Better sleep

  • Lowers blood pressure

  • Minimizes joint pain

  • Helps collagen production

  • Increases circulation

  • Helps energize and improve mood

  • Increase metabolism

  • Strengthens immune system

This therapy does not take multiple sessions to feel and see benefits. Many people report feeling them immediately. These detoxifying therapies target numerous areas of the body, promoting overall better health.

How Does it Work?

Instead of heating the air, infrared saunas use infrared light, which the body absorbs. Radiant energy is produced by the sun, and all life needs that energy. Too much sun can cause damage to the skin, so infrared saunas are the best of both worlds. Choosing this therapy avoids the chance of sun damage while getting the benefits it brings.

Most of the saunas offer a spectrum of infrared exposure:

  • Near-Infrared- this is the most shallow wavelength that only the skin absorbs. It is beneficial for releasing toxins through sweat. People report feeling revitalized and energized after this therapy.

  • Mid-Infrared- this wavelength goes a bit deeper into the body. It helps stimulate the soft tissue, which improves circulation and muscle repair.

  • Far-Infrared- the longest wavelength causes vasodilation of the fat cells. This extraordinary benefit allows the special light to remove the most significant toxins and promotes increased metabolism and weight loss.

Multiple levels allow for one to work their way up or target specific areas of the body. For example, if you want to focus on healing an old injury, you might select a mid-infrared level. Our team would choose the highest infrared level if one wanted to utilize the sauna for its fat-burning abilities.

Important Tips

It’s essential to wipe the sweat away when using the sauna as toxins from the body are released. Toxins, if not removed from the skin, could reabsorb, wasting much of your efforts. Showering after is also a good option.

We suggest you drink one full glass of water before the sauna and one glass after in addition to the recommended intake. Replenishing the water you lost will prevent dehydration.
