Beautiful Spacious Infrared Sauna – The Benefits
Detoxification and Skin Health
Referred by some physicians as our “third kidney,” the skin is our largest organ. 93% of infrared sauna energy is absorbed through the skin, helping the release of toxins buried deep within the skin. The skin is further cleansed by sweating, which rinses bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts, purifying the skin. Dead skin cells are replaced, improving skin elasticity.
The infrared energy released by an Infrared Sauna can penetrate up to 1.5″ into muscle tissue, causing dilation of the blood vessels which aids in general aches and pains, including pain caused by conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Evidence also shows that infrared light can even reduce healing time for sprains and strains when used 24-48 hours post injury.
An average sauna user can produce 500 grams or more of sweat and burn 300 – 700 calories during an infrared sauna session. This is the equivalent of running 2-3 miles! Infrared saunas have also shown to be an effective treatment of cellulite.
Because of the regular dilation and contraction of the blood vessels, researchers have reported that regular use of infrared saunas can help maintain blood vessel health. Blood dilation brings blood closer to the surface of the skin and, as the blood vessels expand, circulation in the extremities improves, and blood pressure gets lower. Although the effect is temporary, medical research shows that frequent sauna use can help the blood pressure level to stay lower.
- Medications: Prescription drug users should seek the advice of their personal physician. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Some over the counter drugs such as antihistamines may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
- Children and the Elderly: Core body temperature regulation is harder to maintain in children and the elderly. Contact your physician before use.
- Serious Cardiovascular Conditions: Hyper/ hypotension, congestive heart failure, and those taking medications should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat.
- Alcohol: Alcohol increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress.
- Chronic Conditions Associated with Reduced Ability to Perspire: Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors, and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.
- Hemophiliacs: Sauna use should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
