What is an Infrared Sauna, and how is it different to regular saunas?
Traditional saunas use heat and humidity to warm the air, which as a result warms your body. This system works via convection and proves to be not as effective as the use of infrared saunas. In contrast, infrared saunas are heated by metallic or ceramic elements that emit a narrow spectrum of mainly far infrared energy. The heat emitted from the energy is known to penetrate the skin more deeply than traditional saunas. In fact, infrared can penetrate 3.5 - 4cm into the body, hence its rapid ability to get great results in temperatures lower than traditional saunas.
What are the benefits of Infrared Saunas?
As previously stated infrared energy can penetrate the skin on a deeper level in lower temperatures. Not only is the cooler temperature more comfortable, but it also cleanses tissue much more effectively. Discover the main benefits you can receive from infrared saunas listed below:
Sit in an infrared sauna and lose weight. Yes, you read that correctly. Lose weight effortlessly by the heat generated from an infrared sauna. How does this work? Your core temperature increases from the heat, causing an increased heart rate. This heart rate increase is the same that you experience when exercising. As a result your body will work harder to lower the core temperature all while keeping up with an increased heart rate. This process will make your body burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. Studies indicate that just 30 minutes in an infrared sauna can burn 600 calories!
Detox and flushing out of toxins:
Infrared saunas induce the body to sweat, which releases toxins from the body. Detoxification of the body can optimize the efficiency of the immune system. It helps avoid disease, prevent illness and improve general health and vitality. With the infrared heating the body from the core, you will sweat up to 7 times more toxins than traditional saunas. The effectiveness of the infrared sauna to detoxify is just extraordinary!
As the infrared sauna increases you core body temperature from all the heat, naturally your circulation increases too. As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. This revs up the production of white blood cells in your immune system that fight off invaders, infection and so forth. The stimulation of blood flow is also fantastic for muscle recovery and pain alleviation too.
Purify your skin:
As mentioned previously, infrared technology stimulates better circulation and blood flow. However, infrared also increases collagen production, which vastly improves the look and feel of your skin. Your skin is further purified by flushing out cellular debris and elimination of toxins from your pores. This enhances overall skin health, by giving it a more radiant, clear, soft and healthy appearance and value.
