Sweating is one of the most natural ways to remove toxins, so detoxification is very important. Compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to remove about seven times more toxins.
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance the level of cortisol in your body, the main stress hormone. The heat in the sauna will also help relax the muscles and reduce tension throughout the body so that you can relax and forget about stress.
- Pain relief
If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by improving blood circulation and relaxing your muscles.
- Weight loss
Infrared sauna heat will cause your body temperature to rise, which can also increase your heart rate – at the same time increasing your heart rate, just as your heart rate increases. When your body has to work harder to lower your body temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories and lose weight. An article titled the “sweating effect,” in the Journal of the American Medical Association, concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna can burn about 600 calories.
- Better blood circulation
As the heat from an infrared sauna increases your core body temperature, your blood circulation will increase along with the heat. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, in particular, can promote blood circulation, improve muscle recovery, and reduce pain and inflammation after intense workouts.
- Skin cleansing
Infrared sauna technology can help cleanse the skin by removing toxins from its pores and speeding up skin regeneration, resulting in softer, and healthier looking skin.
