The benefits of regular infrared sauna use
Detoxification is a well-known health benefit of infrared saunas, but did you know that you can dramatically improve your overall health, wellness and sleep quality all at the same time? These little hot boxes really pack a punch in terms of overall body therapy.
As a result, saunas are quickly gaining in popularity as the health benefits have been proven to make a dramatic difference in the lives of dedicated sauna users. Let’s look at the 7 benefits of regular infrared sauna use below.
1. Improved immune system
Many experts believe that direct exposure of the skin to the warming heat of a sauna helps stimulate the rapid production of infection-fighting white blood cells that can strengthen the immune system.
Medical research in Germany has recently shown that incidents of colds and the flu can be reduced by up to 30% by using a sauna regularly – goodbye tissue box. The benefits to the immune system are significant, and with the number of people we come in contact with each day, it simply makes sense to guard against infection and illness.
2. Enhanced sleep
Saunas help you sleep better, producing positive benefits for your overall health and wellness. Your body is relieved of tension or fatigue as sauna use may lower cortisol levels. Also endorphins are released into the body, which create a calming, almost tranquilizing sensation that can lull virtually anyone into sleep – even my 6 year old daughter.
3. Stress relief
Stress relief is another one of the key health benefits of infrared sauna sessions. Heat shock proteins are produced when an individual spends time in a sauna, and these substances are used by your body’s cells to counteract the impact of toxins, extreme heat or cold, or stress brought on by exercise.
Infrared Saunas have also been shown to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) relaxing the body and allowing your body to heal. This is a necessary break from the sympathetic mode (fight or flight) which is pretty much modern day-to-day living – stuck in traffic, if you’ve got kids the witching hour and then just the trials and tribulations of life – we do lead busier lives than previous generations.
4. Strengthened heart
One way to love your heart is simply spend time in an infrared sauna. It can help virtually anyone strengthen their heart and cardiovascular system and its just a 30 minute sitting session! Bring it on I say.
A research study by the University of Eastern Finland that spanned more than 20 years and included thousands of study participants showed a reduction in life-threatening cardiac events among participants who regularly used a sauna.
Those who took sauna 2 to 3 times per week showed a 23% lower risk of fatal events, while those who completed 4 to 7 sauna sessions per week indicated a 48% lower risk. That’s one big way to love your heart.
5. Increased metabolism and weight loss (and did we mention CELLULITE?)
In a comfortable 35 minute sauna session one’s heart rate can reach an aerobic state. Consistent aerobic cardiovascular workouts lead to a healthier heart and increased metabolism. Bring me a towel garcon.
This boost in metabolism burns calories and can trigger weight loss in individuals who have a little extra weight. Just as jogging increases heart rate and burns calories, good news my friends, infrared sauna use can trigger the same cardiovascular stresses by simply sitting in the sauna – that’s a winner. But wait ladies (and maybe some gents) it gets better – we are also seeing infrared saunas the world over as an effective way to help minimize cellulite. Where’s my sarong and water please.
6. Minimised joint pain
Another big health benefit of infrared saunas is the minimization of joint pain and inflammation. This type of radiant heat therapy is used around the world to effectively treat patients suffering from bursitis, neuralgia, muscle spasms, stiff joints, and arthritis. From customers of all levels of fitness and health, we hear about lasting relief from soreness, aches, and pains with consistent sauna use. Say goodbye to the daily aches and pains.
7. Athletic recovery
Athletic recovery is made easier, too. Growth hormone is naturally and safely increased when sauna sessions are combined with consistent exercise routines, and blood flow is boosted. This means the skeletal muscles are better fueled, and are more easily flushed of lactic acids and calcium ions – two fatigue-inducing substances – wow right!
Whether you’re looking to use infrared saunas for detoxification, weight loss or as a sauna stress relief technique, one thing is certain – your overall health and well being is improved! It’s just one of the best overall body therapies anyone can give themselves.
