Benefits of Infared Sauna
The days are getting longer, the birds are singing, the flowers are back -
Spring is finally here!
Aside from New Years, the beginning of Spring is one of the most common times for people to set new goals. The cold Winter months can take a toll on you - from holiday stress (and food!) to lack of sunshine, you may find yourself feeling like a sluggish version of your former self. This is the perfect time to check in and see what your body needs to recharge and take on the rest of the year.
Let’s talk about the benefits of Infrared Saunas. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health; sweating is good for you!
Detox: Our bodies sweat to not only regulate our internal temperatures, but to release toxins that build up in our system over time. Infrared Saunas help the lymph system also release toxins by increasing their productivity. Bonus points if you schedule a massage after an infrared sauna treatment to really loosen up and let go of all of those toxins!
Circulation: Infrared heat stimulates muscles in a similar way that exercise does. On average, an infrared sauna session helps increase the blood flow from 5-7 quarts a minute to 13! Although simply relaxing in the sauna will help on it’s own, you can even do light stretching while inside to increase not only blood flow, but flexibility as well.
Skin Benefits: Our skin is capable of holding onto a lot of buildup and toxins that can be lessened by regular infrared sauna use. Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as heavy metals. Studies have also shown improvements made to the skin’s elasticity and collagen levels.
Weight Loss: Using an infrared sauna in conjunction with other healthy eating and exercise habits can also increase the body’s weight loss rate. By increasing sweating with a higher core temperature, your body burns calories. Consider using the infrared sauna after a workout or even adding small stretching routines to boost your heart rate. Unlike traditional steam or wet saunas, infrared heat helps you lose more than water weight.
Relaxation: Designed to not only soothe and ease your body, the Sunlighten Infrared Sauna can also help relax the mind. Stress and anxiety can cause physical tension and can manifest in ways that affect your physical and mental wellbeing. Infrared therapy soothes your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth.
