Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared rays have the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” therapies for overall healthier living. If you want to get yourself back into balance, the benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals.
Infrared Sauna Relaxation
As the gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat warms the body, the heat relaxes the muscles, tendons and ligaments while oxygen and nutrients are carried to tissues that are not that well supplied at other times. Infrared saunas promote relaxation and improved sleep and includes an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully relaxed and refreshed after each session.
Infrared Sauna Weight Loss
Yes, it’s true that you can burn up to 300 calories in a ½ hr in the infrared sauna, provided you sweat profusely As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Infrared Sauna Pain Relief
Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Infrared Sauna Blood Pressure Reduction
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows the benefits of using an infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure. The Mayo Clinic uses far-infrared saunas in their treatment of cardiac patients.
Improved Circulation from Infrared Sauna Therapy
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate circulation to hands, feet and skin
Infrared Sauna Skin Purification
The infrared heat provides healing to the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Infrared sessions stimulate collagen production to provide a healthier, more youthful appearance and improved overall skin tone. Far infrared rays also target deeper down, removing toxins and alleviating stubborn skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema and acne.
Infrared Sauna Wound Healing
Scientific research has concluded that infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevent infection.
Cell Health, Muscle Recovery & Immunity
Near infrared light therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface and exit the body through the sweat to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.

Enhanced Physical Conditioning and Athletic Performance
Infrared saunas promote an increased heart rate and stroke volume (amount of blood pumped with each heartbeat) in order to bring blood to the surface of the skin for sweat production and cooling……NASA and various cardiac medical journals report that this is equivalent to walking at a moderate to vigorous pace. It can be used as a pre workout session by warming up the muscles, tendons and ligaments and cranking up the circulatory system before you get started and a post workout session enhancing shortened recovery time from workouts, muscle aches, strains and bruises and provides quicker clearance of lactic acid from post workout muscle soreness.
