Infrared Sauna: 5 Reasons to Make it Part of your Wellness Routine

"Your skin is your best accessory. Take good care of it."

Rest, Rejuvenate & Detoxify! The infrared sauna is an incredible source of health and wellness support that you can add to your routine. Below are 5 of our favorite reasons why.

Detoxification: Infrared sauna therapy is among the most powerful means of detoxification. Infrared heat from the sauna is able to penetrate deeply into the skin, producing a productive sweat that eliminates toxins, dirt and most importantly, heavy metals. This type of radiant heat is able to relieve any stress of detoxification from the internal organs, specifically the kidneys and liver. As stress is relieved from within, individuals will experience heightened levels of youthful energy.

Cardiovascular Health: Within minutes of sitting in an infrared sauna, your body's natural response begins. Similar to the benefits of exercise, the sauna increases blood flow by sending heat through your muscles, improving circulation and supporting reduced blood pressure. Researchers compared the physical response of a session to walking a moderate pace.

Muscle Recovery: The infrared heat helps to dilate the blood vessels which sends more oxygen to the cells in our body. This increase of oxygen to tired and strained muscles can help them relax and recover quickly after intense workouts. Your body will feel refreshed and renewed.

Anti-Aging: Sweat produced from infrared heat is deeply rejuvenating and detoxifying for the skin. It accelerates cellular activity and increases circulation which delivers vital nutrients to the skin surface. The unique relationship between the infrared rays and the cellular network in the body stimulates and boosts collagen production. This results in strengthened connective tissue which is essential for maintaining a youthful appearance. Strong connective tissue is also important for the prevention of osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and joint pain.

Immunity: There is evidence to suggest that regular sauna use can help avoid the common cold. Infrared heat supports your body's cells health by producing white blood cells for faster recovery from illnesses and reduce oxidative stress.

Relaxation: The sauna creates a perfect place for de-stressing and relaxation. 3D heat therapy penetrates deep into the body, balancing your level of your body's stress hormone, cortisol, and promoting a deep sense of calm. You can think of your time in the sauna as a meditation session.

It is important to consider your sauna aftercare. Delay taking a shower approximately 30 minutes as your body will continue to sweat due to elevated core body temperatures. Also, increase your water intake to stay hydrated throughout the day and consider adding electrolytes.
