What is an Infrared Sauna?
An infrared sauna is different to a traditional sauna in that they do not use steam to heat the air, instead they use infrared radiation to directly heat the person. The infrared waves penetrate into the body, raising the body temperature which causes sweating, which in turns eliminates wastes from the body. The infrared heat penetrates deep into pores and cleans out dirt and debris, as well as clearing the organs of toxins, and strengthening the immune system.
What can Infrared Saunas be used for?
Sitting inside an infrared sauna can help alleviate painful muscles and promote body detoxification. A 20-minute far infrared sauna session one to two times a week can help to eliminate unhealthy toxins from the body. While in an infrared sauna, the user sweats, and this sweat carries with it the toxins that are in the body. A single far infrared sauna session can result in sweat that consists of 20% toxins and the rest consisting of water. Thus, a far infrared sauna session also helps to alleviate issues related to fluid retention.
An infrared sauna also aids in weight loss. If a 70kg person usually burns around 300 calories jogging or swimming for 30 minutes, the infrared sauna promises to help get rid of 400-600 calories in a one 30 minute session!
