Health benefits of infrared sauna therapy

The infrared wavelengths are part of the broad spectrum of healing waves, penetrating up to 1.5 cm in the soft tissues, warming the body and dilating the blood vessels in a process called vasodilation. Infrared is so safe that it is regularly used in hospitals to warm newborns.

Physicians, chiropractors and physiotherapists use infrared therapy every day in clinics and hospitals around the world to relieve pain, cure skin conditions, increase joint flexibility and generally speed up body healing.

There are many benefits of infrared saunas and we set out to discuss some of them.

Detoxification

Infrared saunas help to improve blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, thus contributing to the release of toxins accumulated in the body. Known for decades that sweat is a great way to remove the chemicals stored in the body and use weekly sauna detoxification help. Using the infrared sauna can remove heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel and cadmium) from the body , as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid and other organic and inorganic compounds.

Reducing stress and fatigue

After only a few minutes spent in the gentle heat of an infrared sauna, you will feel better, more relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed. An infrared sauna offers wonderful moments for relaxation, being as effective as a day spent at the SPA.

In addition, infrared saunas have been shown to have an effect on the autonomic nervous system, putting the user in a parasympathetic state (such as when we rest) and allowing the body to heal and recover.

Muscle pain, back pain, arthritis and joint pain

Infrared saunas can help relieve inflammation, stiffness and pain by stimulating blood circulation. In addition, deep heat penetration helps to relax the muscles and eliminate metabolic waste, while providing the muscles with a rich supply of oxygenated blood and contributing to faster recovery. Infrared helps to warm up muscles, increasing flexibility, easing movements and relieving muscle tension and pain.

Studies have also shown that time spent in an infrared sauna can reduce different forms of arthritis. Moreover, radiant heat was effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, muscle spasms, joint stiffness, back pain and many other musculoskeletal disorders.

Much of the stiffness and pain that occurs due to the aging process of the joints can be alleviated by the regular use of the infrared sauna, which can even improve rheumatoid arthritis .

Cellulite treatment

We call cellulite the superficial fat pockets that cause the skin to look like orange peel. It is found in 90% of post-adolescent women and is rarely found among men. Common areas are the buttocks, thighs and abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, and weight loss does not reduce it.

Because the radiant heat with infrared reaches three times deeper than in the case of a conventional sauna, the infrared sauna is significantly more efficient in reducing cellulite. There is a link between slowing the metabolic rate and storing toxins in fat cells, and the sauna helps eliminate toxins.

Moreover, long-term use of infrared saunas increases heart rate and improves blood circulation, reducing the tendency of fluid accumulation in fat cells and reducing cellulite.
