As you might know, sweating is a great way to burn calories and rid your body of unwanted toxins. But how do you sweat when you’re injured, or unable to exercise?
Sweating in an infrared sauna has countless benefits and also makes you feel really great, especially once the weather starts to cool down. I find that once the cold weather hits, we become less active and sedentary and our bodies will undoubtedly accumulate more toxins since we aren’t sweating any of them out. Some of the benefits of using an infrared sauna include;
• Easing joint pain and stiffness
• Improving injury healing
• Weight management
• Improving blood circulation
• Cardiovascular conditioning
• Relaxation and stress management
• Skin care
• Immune system enhancing
The far infrared sauna is the ultimate portable infrared sauna. Our unit is made from cedar and manufactured in Canada (this is noteworthy because all wood saunas manufactured outside of Canada are sprayed, when they go through customs, making them toxic to sit in). The infrared sauna also features soothing radiant heat at safer, more comfortable temperatures than conventional saunas, making breathing more pleasant. The radiant heat is being absorbed by your body over 1 1/2 inches below the skin, giving pain relief for those with sports injuries, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and other chronic pain conditions. The far infrared sauna has also shown to be very effective for weight loss.
Although an infrared sauna operates at only 110 F to 130 F, compared to a conventional sauna which operates at 180 F to 210 F, radiant heat from an infrared sauna helps the body produce two to three times more sweat
These crucial differences help to explain why the health benefits available through infrared therapy are not attainable throughout the use of a conventional sauna.
So if you can’t motivate yourself to hit the gym or get to a yoga class to burn those calories and sweat out all the bad stuff come visit us for an infrared sauna session!
