As body temperature rises, perspiration occurs and blood circulation increases. The muscles and organs are stimulated and toxic waste is removed from the body through perspiration. Conventional saunas need higher air temperatures to pull impurities from the body. The infrared heated saunas penetrate more directly. This means impurities can be pushed out using lower and more comfortable temperatures.
A 30 minute sauna creates approximately the same amount of perspiration as a ten kilometre run. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to boost circulation, thus improving your cardiovascular system. Infrared saunas make it possible for people who have difficulty exercising, to achieve a cardiovascular training effect.
Infrared saunas are excellent for increasing blood circulation to the skin, essential for a beautiful, youthful glow. The infrared energy causes your capillaries and vessels to dilate which stimulates blood flow and draws more oxygen and nutrients to your skin’s surface. This keeps skin moisturized and gives it a soft, pink glow.
Sweating also opens up skin pores which helps eliminate waste products and impurities such as dirt, oil and makeup. Once these are removed the likelihood that skin conditions such as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, acne, eczema, and psoriasis will occur, reduce substantially. Open wounds have also been known to heal faster, which reduces scarring.
Relaxation of the mind and body is possibly the most immediate benefit from the Infrared Sauna. In addition to the stress-relieving aspects of penetrating heat, you may leave a sauna session with a heightened sense of well-being. The high temperature can relax tense muscles, and provide pain relief to aching joints. The enclosed environment also provides an opportunity to quiet your mind, and let go of the hectic demands of every-day life.
