Infrared saunas are excellent for detoxification. Our infrared sauna comes from Clearlight Infrared Saunas and penetrates one and a half inches into the skin to produce two to three times the amount of sweat that you would experience in a dry sauna. Infrared saunas use conversion to directly heat the body instead of the air for a more comfortable and less hot environment.
Detoxification: In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Sunlight Infrared sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water.
Pain Relief: Heat Responsive Pain (HRP) such as back, neck, and arthritis can be greatly alleviated with regular infrared sauna use.
Weight Loss: a 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories. As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Infrared heat raises core body temperature, increasing circulation, causing you to sweat, and increasing passive cardiovascular conditioning.
Lowers Blood Pressure: Sunlight infrared saunas were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri and they were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute sauna 3 times per week. Repeated infrared treatment improves blood vessel function in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.
Improves Circulation: Heating of muscles with infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. Infrared has been shown to help edema.
Skin Purification: Infrared sauna use helps open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Infrared helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, and skin lesions and cuts. It reduces wrinkles, firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may help reduce cellulite, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly.
