There are many benefits associated with relaxing in the soothing heat of an infrared sauna. In general, lower air temperatures than those of traditional saunas allow the user to stay in longer, resulting in more benefits than a traditional sauna with less shock to the body.
For those who are unable to perform regular exercise increasing your heart rate while sitting in an infrared sauna can be a viable alternative. It is important to give your heart muscle a work-out ion a regular basis.
Removal of toxins:
We are inundated with toxins of all types like never before. They are in the food we eat, the air breath, and on the things we touch. It has never been more important to rid our bodies of these types of toxins. There is no doubt that the increase in allergies, chronic fatigue, headaches, and sugar imbalances are related to these. Sitting in a sauna and increasing your core temperature helps accelerate the drainage of these toxic materials by increasing blood flow through the skin via sweat.
Improved skin conditions:
There is no spa treatment which is as effective as natures own way of cleaning your skin pores – sweating. Your skin will look and feel younger.
There is no replacement for a healthy diet and exercise for achieving weight loss. It is a question of calories in versus calories burnt. Try adding 30 minutes in an Arctic sauna after your workout and see what happens. A 30 minute session can burn up to 700 extra calories.
As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate thus improving circulation. Blood flow during whole-body hyperthermia is reported to rise about 50 percent.
More blood circulation has the obvious benefits of helping injured muscles repair faster as oxygen rich blood circulates through the body, improving the body’s immune system. Drainage of toxic materials is accelerated. An oxygen rich blood supply helps to restore the body’s natural balance.
Sit back and relax. Add the soothing sounds of your favorite music. The results will be obvious. You deserve it!
