Infrared Sauna Therapy uses light to heat the body directly in order to raise its core temperature and produce a deep, detoxifying sweat.
While a traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which then warms the body, an infrared sauna heats the body directly, which in turn, produces a host of health benefits. An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light that is absorbed by the surface of the skin. These light waves penetrate deep into the body for a deep heating action that activates the sweat glands, which, in turn, helps the body eliminate toxins.
Infrared heaters warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight.The result is deeper tissue penetration. The body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna.
Everyone knows sweating is the body’s natural way to get rid of toxins. By heating the body directly, the infrared light causes the core temperature to rise, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where toxins are located.
One of the greatest benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy is that the heat penetrates tissue, muscles, and joints in order to relieve pain – everything from minor aches to pain caused by chronic conditions like osteoarthritis.
When infrared heat is used on muscles, it results in an increase in blood flow that is similar to that achieved during exercise.
Infrared Sauna Therapy also increases your skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and tissue growth.
