Just see how many great health benefits you get when you heat up your body during a hyperthermia session in a far infrared sauna.
TOP BENEFITS OF INFRARED SAUNAS
The infrared rays from an infrared sauna penetrate the body with deep heat. This heat increases blood circulation resulting in sweating. With the sweat, your body and its vital organs are detoxified of toxins.
Boosted Immune System:
Increased body temperatures, similar to a fever trigger the body’s immune response. Fevers help your body to fight off infection by allowing immune cells to work more efficiently. These cells have the ability to destroy virus-infected cells and tumor cells. As your body produces more white blood cells, they act as your immune system’s first line of defense when infection attacks.
Weight Loss & Increased Metabolism:
During sauna use your heart rate increases; mimicking cardiovascular exercise and may even help you with weight loss by the increased activity of your body in cooling down for several hours after your session.
Several studies have shown that far infrared therapy decreases delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), which is the muscle soreness the days following a workout. So hit the saunas after your weight lifting session and decrease your muscle soreness in the next few days.
Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissues, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.
Inflammation is the root of many chronic illnesses. Infrared sauna reduces inflammation, indicating that it may be beneficial for inflammatory diseases such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and autoimmune diseases.
Relaxation & Stress Relief:
Reduce stress and relaxation levels. Infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol and induces muscle relaxation, resulting in feeling more relaxed.
Heart and Blood Pressure Health:
Infrared Saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. By reducing blood pressure and increasing oxygen circulation, saunas support heart health and may reduce the risk of heart disease
