Get Hot and Sweaty

There’s no better way to feel the heat on a cold winter day that sweating it out in a Far Infrared Sauna!

Saunas have long been used to relax, rejuvenate, cleanse, and socialize.  The benefits of flushing heavy metals, cleanse skin, and increase circulation have been known for thousands of years.  Now, Far Infrared heat saunas can penetrate the skin more deeply than traditional saunas, better aiding in a number of restorative body processes.  There are many benefits to sweating in a far infrared sauna.

Sweating helps flush out toxins such as mercury, lead, and environmental chemicals, from the body and in so doing reduces its toxic load, aiding in liver function. With infrared saunas, the sweating is deeper and more profuse, enabling your body to excrete a higher percentage of toxins than with a conventional sauna. Infrared saunas are also a great alternative for those who don’t like high temperatures or need to avoid them for medical reasons due to the temperature controls.  You can receive benefits with 15-20 minutes, while most people stay in for up to an hour.  Of course, it is always important to consult with your Physician if you have any medical conditions.

When you sweat, you’ll be stimulating better blood flow and circulation throughout your body, reducing blood pressure, and healing arterial walls.  Additionally, you can relax tight muscles and easing minor aches and pains.   Infrared saunas can provide drug-free pain relief for muscles and joints.  They can improve chronic conditions like arthritis, by reducing stiffness and inflammation, and also aid in muscle recovery.

Infrared spas help improve skin tone and reduce signs of aging by stimulating collagen production, and cleansing pores for a radiant glow.  Because of their ability to penetrate the skin more deeply, they increase metabolic rate and can help the body burn off anywhere from 200 – 600 calories in a half hour session.  Most initial weight loss is water, so hydration is essential.

Many gyms and even yoga studios employ Far Infrared Technology.  Nowadays, a home sauna can be very affordable.  This small investment can have large returns to your health.  You can find portable, easy to assemble models at Costco starting under $1000.

Happy Sweating!

  1. I love saunas! Especially adding a bit of cold thermogenesis to the mixture. You sit in the heat for a while then run out into the snow – that is what our family and friends always do. Feels amazing!
