Far Infrared Sauna heat is simply and naturally rising to the top of health regime requirements.
FIR gently penetrates deep (3 inches) within the soft tissues of the skin, layers of fat and muscles. Promoting micro-circulation and improving cellular metabolism.
Better Circulation and Increased Energy
Activated by heat, the FIR material emits FIR energy that is absorbed by human cells, causing a physical phenomenon called “resonance”. Thus the cellular activities are instantly invigorated, resulting in a better blood circulation and an overall improved metabolism.
Maintain Cardiovascular Health
It also increases heart rate and blood circulation, both crucial to maintaining one’s health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin
without heightening blood pressure.
Weight Loss Aid
FIR Sauna heat therapy works to gently break apart water molecules, increase circulation and accelerate the flushing of toxins.
can aid in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in substantial caloric loss in a sauna heat session.
Speed Recovery from Injuries
For injuries, heat stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities , speeding the healing of sprains and strains, thus relieving pain.
The increased blood helps aching and injured muscles recover faster because the stronger the flow of blood, the quicker metabolic and toxic waste products are purged from the body, through the skin during perspiration. The skin is often known as the 3rd kidney, because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating up to 30% of body waste.
Stress Reduction & Relaxation
FIR Sauna heat treatment before a massage also helps prepare a client by creating an overall relaxing effect. It loosens the muscle tissue so the therapist can do a more thorough and effective massage.
For that sought after healthy glow, FIR Sauna heat therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone and texture. A FIR Sauna heat bath also provides a mild cleansing of the skin.
Improved Immune System
By creating an “Artificial Fever”, FIR heat has a positive effect on the immune system. Often misunderstood, fear is a natural healing response of the body. The function of the immune system is increased naturally during a fever, while virus and bacterial growth is slowed, weakening its hold. This helps the body ward off invading organisms. A FIR heat treatment in the early stages of a cold or flu has been known to stop the disease before the symptoms occur.
How We Can Help
While many saunas seen at health clubs or gyms use steam, infrared saunas use light to heat the body and intensify detoxification. Since the light only heats the body, and not the surrounding air, many feel infrared light is a more efficient way to use a sauna because not as much heat is needed. Since the room itself doesn’t heat up, these saunas are also ideal for those who can’t or shouldn’t be exposed to high temperatures.
Used in proper amounts, infrared saunas are safe to use, alleviate pain, and increase relaxation. In addition, these saunas can help lower high blood pressure as well as cholesterol levels, helping keep the heart healthy. The treatment can also help with chronic heart failure and arrhythmias.
There are many other health benefits when infrared saunas are used. Infrared lamps are capable of causing dramatic changes in body chemistry in some instances, helping restore balance in some people who suffer from chronic problems related to pains, inflammation, low energy and poor circulation.
