Unlike the heat produced in traditional saunas, far infrared heat is able to penetrate your body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches. This stimulates your body’s immune system and cellular detoxification more effectively than a traditional sauna. Additionally, far infrared saunas are better tolerated than steam saunas because the heat is not felt on your skin’s surface. The benefits of far infrared saunas include:
1. Improved Cardiovascular Conditioning
Medical research shows that regular use of a far infrared sauna may be as effective for cardiovascular conditioning as exercise. As the body heats up, it cools itself by sending blood from the internal organs to the extremities and the skin, thus increasing heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate.
A crucial part of detoxification is sweating. Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins. Compared to traditional Swedish saunas, far infrared saunas allow you to eliminate approximately seven times more toxins.
3. Weight & Cellulite Control
The heat you will experience in a far infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which leads to an increased heart rate similar to what you experience when you exercise. As your core temperature goes up your body works harder to keep up with the increased heart rate resulting in your body burning up to approximately 600 calories in a 30 minute session.
The heat generated by the sauna helps to relieve tension and relax muscles. Far infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by decreasing cortisol levels. Cortisol is your body’s primary stress hormone.
5. Pain Relief
Increasing your blood circulation while relaxing in the sauna speeds up the healing process and relieves pain.
6. Skin Purification
Far infrared saunas helps to purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores. The increase in circulation, results in softer, clearer, and healthier-looking skin.
