WHAT ARE “INFRARED SAUNAS”, HOW ARE THEY DIFFERENT FROM REGULAR SAUNAS AND ARE THEY SAFE?

Infrared Saunas are the next step in the sauna evolution. Humans have utilized saunas for hundreds of years for the robust health benefits they create with continued use. Simply put the biggest difference is that Infrared saunas are dry while steam saunas are wet and humid. The additions of Infrared heating panels also allow for a deeper penetration of heat energy into the body, at much lower temperatures than wet steam saunas. This means you receive an enhanced level of robust benefits while remaining comfortable and decreasing the risk of heat stroke or fainting.

HEALTH BENEFITS ASSOCIATED WITH REGULAR USE OF INFRARED HEAT THERAPY.

Pain Relief.
Detoxifiction.
Anti-ageing.

Stress Reduction.
Lactic Acid is a bi-product of exercise that leaves our muscles feeling tired and sore. Regular use of Infrared heat therapy has been shown to increase blood vessel dilation that in turn promotes increased blood flow to inflamed muscle fibers and joint connective tissue. This is how our bodies heal, through blood flow, which carries in nutrients and anti-inflammatory properties, and also flushes out the build up of toxic bi products such as lactic acid.
Our bodies have an inbuilt cooling system called sweating. Most people sweat a little on a daily basis, however most people don’t sweat enough for actual detoxification needed to reduce toxic amounts of trace elements we absorb from interacting with our modern environments. Studies suggest that regular use of Infrared saunas lowered users levels of lead, copper, zinc and mercury; all linked to various degenerative brain disease, depression and heavy metal poisoning.
Results you can actually see. Deep sweating with Infrared Heat Therapy opens up pores and flushes dirt and bacteria that is accumulated from everyday life. Cleansing of pores this way has been shown to improve capillary circulation, while giving the skin a softer looking quality.
Your body temperature is raised during an Infrared sauna session, but this plummets as your body cools down after the session, leaving you more relaxed. The heat also triggers the release of endorphins, your body’s built-in painkillers, which work pretty much like opiates.

In the raised temperature of Infrared Sauna therapy our skin heats up, as does the core temperature. Cardiac output follows; Medical research shows the heart rate can rise from 60-70bpm (beats per minute) to 110-120bpm while experiencing Infrared heat therapy, which is comparable to the increase that is seen during moderate exercise. In short, your heart receives the benefits from a moderate run while sitting down.
