Relieves Stress - Stress is one of the biggest factors in determining overall health and well being. The most immediate health benefit of the sauna is stress reduction through simple relaxation, as it melts away the problems and tensions of daily life. Far-infrared sauna therapy causes your muscles to relax, and causes an increase in circulation and blood flow. Within minutes you will start to feel rejuvenated and renewed.
Skin Purification - Far-infrared sauna therapy improves blood flow and circulation to the skin, bringing fresh nutrients to the surface. At the same time, the profuse sweating expels dirt, chemicals, and dead cells on the surface of the skin. This leads to softer skin and clearer skin tone. This increased blood circulation to the skin has been known to help alleviate common skin issues such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.
Weight Loss - As the body heats up and sweats, there is a substantial increase in heart rate and metabolic rate, as the body attempts to cool itself. An increase in the heart and metabolic rates results in burned calories. Some users burn calories equivalent to a brisk walk; some burn calories comparable to running 2 or 3 miles. Far-infrared saunas can also help rid your body of cellulite which is a gel like substance made up of fat cells, water and waste. Feel those extra pounds melt away.
Strengthened Immune System - Some researchers believe that far-infrared sauna therapy can help stimulate the body's immune system by elevating body temperature. Many viruses, bacteria, and tumour cells are thought to have poor tolerance to heat compared to normal healthy cells. A 30 minute session can cause a temporary 3 degree increase in temperature. This increase has been shown to stimulate white blood cells, which may also improve your body's immune system.
Detoxification - Everyday, people are exposed to thousands of chemicals in the air, water, food, cleaning products, plastics, artificial additives, artificial preservatives, and many other items used in daily life. These toxins are absorbed through breathing, eating, or through the skin and are either metabolized or stored in the body.
Since the skin is our largest organ, it plays an important role in eliminating undesirable toxins. The body eliminates most toxins naturally through sweating. The deep penetration of far-infrared technology allows removal of toxins stored in fat cells; and the significant heating up of the body causes profuse sweating which will speed up the body's natural detoxification process.
Pain Management - Muscles relax greatly in relation to how warm the tissue is. Deep heat from the far-infrared sauna penetrates as deep as 1.5 inches into skin, joints, and muscles. This deep heat helps blood vessels dilate bringing relief to sore muscles and soft tissue injuries. Improved blood circulation feeds the muscles with oxygen-rich blood that speeds up that natural healing process.
