DETOXING THE BODY | Our skin is our largest organ and our sweat helps carry toxins like heavy metals, nicotine and inorganic compounds out of the body through our pores. Industry experts even say that Infrared Saunas are seven times more effective in detoxifying the body than traditional saunas - stating that sweat from Infrared Sauna sessions is 20% toxins versus traditional
sauna sweat which is just 3% toxins.
BOOSTING YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM | Infrared saunas boost your immune system by heating up the body and supercharging immune cells to help them fight off infections. It's been proven numerous times that heating the body's internal temperature is a great way to activate and elevate the immune system against viruses and bacteria. (Some scientists and doctors even believe this is why our bodies get fevers when we're fighting an infection!)
BALANCING STRESS HORMINES & ENHANCING SLEEP | By balancing cortisol levels and providing a relaxing atmosphere, Infrared Saunas help reduce stress and lower cortisol stress hormone levels. They also enhance sleep by promoting the production of serotonin, the sleep chemical. The heat also allows muscles to relax so you can experience deeper levels of relaxation.
PURIFYING YOUR SKIN | Increased blood flow and circulation along with removal of toxins from pores all help your skin look and feel radiant. Infrared saunas help bring healthy oxygenated blood to areas in need and give your skin a boost of vital nutrients reducing the appearance of scars, acne, discoloration, wrinkles, eczema and even cellulite.
INCREASING CIRCULATION AND BLOOD FLOW | Infrared saunas increase your heart rate, dilating your blood vessels and increasing blood flow. Increased circulation helps bring oxygen-rich blood to depleted areas of the skin, muscles, organs and beyond.
SPEEDING UP HEALING AND RELIEVING JOINT & MUSCLE PAIN | Infrared rays penetrate 1 1/2 inches beneath our skin prompting deep healing and relief for sore joints and muscles. Infrared Saunas have also been shown to affect the nervous system allowing your body to ease into a "rest and digest" state promoting deeper healing. Whether you're sore from an intense workout, an injury or arthritis, an infrared sauna session can help your body feel better.
WEIGHT LOSS | According to an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular sauna use can have a similar impact on the cardiovascular system as running. As you relax in the infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. Your body increases sweat production to cool down and your heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in metabolism will burn calories - some say it may burn roughly 600 calories.
Various studies, doctors and experts have suggested that regular use of Infrared Saunas also
help with these conditions
- Skin conditions like premature aging &
- Joint & muscle pain, arthritis & fibromyalgia
- Stress & fatigue
- Muscle spasms
- Heavy metal poisoning
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Lyme disease
WEIGHT LOSS | According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system to running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories.
The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate - the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. An article, titled Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories.
IMPROVED CIRCULATION | Cellulite refers to superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or "orange peel" skin. It appears in 90% of post-adolescent women and is rarely seen in men. Common but not exclusive areas where cellulite is found are the buttocks, thighs, and the abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, and the appearance of cellulite is not always reduced by weight loss.
Since the far infrared radiant heat of the infrared sauna warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite. There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use and far infrared heat can increase heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends towards the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
SKIN PURIFICATION | Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin. The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in your Clearlight Sauna carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin's own natural nutrients to the surface.
You'll see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.
