A sauna changed my life in many ways and I love to spread the word about this centuries-old method for relaxation and health benefits. If you're unfamiliar with what an infrared sauna is, it's a type of sauna that uses infrared light to heat the body directly, rather than heating the air around you. Traditional saunas use heated rocks to warm the air, while infrared saunas use infrared heaters to emit radiant heat that directly heats your body. This means that infrared saunas can operate at lower temperatures than traditional saunas while still providing the same benefits. Infrared saunas typically operate between 120-150°F, while traditional saunas can reach temperatures of up to 200°F.

Because infrared saunas use radiant heat, they penetrate deeper into your skin, which can provide additional benefits such as improved circulation, detoxification, and pain relief. A study found that infrared sauna therapy was effective in reducing pain and stiffness in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The authors suggest that the heat from the infrared sauna may increase blood flow and release endorphins, leading to pain relief and improved range of motion. Other studies have also shown that infrared saunas may be effective in reducing pain in people with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

They are also more efficient in helping your body sweat out toxins and impurities. I once had alarmingly high levels of mercury and arsenic in my body - and the regular use of an infrared sauna was a game changer in the successful outcome of my detox endeavor. I also notice the amazing clear-skin benefits on my face and body along with increased fat-burning and less water retention. Without fail - I always feel and look better when I consistently use my sauna.

Benefits of infrared saunas: 

While infrared saunas may be an investment - they are one of the best ones you can make for your health. They are a safe and effective way to improve overall health and wellness in the convenience of your own home. Whether you are looking to relieve pain, detoxify your body, boost your immune system, or just relax and unwind, an infrared sauna may be right for you. Just be sure to speak with your healthcare professional before starting any new health regimen.
