What is infrared sauna?

Infrared is an invisible form of energy that is accepted by the body as heat. The heat from an infrared sauna has the ability to penetrate the surface of the skin and gently heat the body from within, providing your body with overall radiant warmth.

A traditional steam sauna simply heats the air around you, creating a very hot and uncomfortable environment that can sometimes be difficult to breathe in.

Because an infrared sauna uses infrared heating technology to radiate heat from within the body, its sauna environment can remain at a lower temperature than traditional steam saunas. Whereas traditional steam saunas climb to temperatures between 185°F and 195°F, infrared sauna temperatures are more tolerable, typically ranging between 125°F and 150°F.

THE BENEFITS OF INFRARED SAUNA

 

WEIGHT LOSS

Studies show that one 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories. As the body works to regulate its core temperature, attempting to cool itself in response to the infrared heat, it experiences an increase in heart rate, metabolic rate and cardiac output. 

Also, since body fat becomes water soluble at 110°F, fat molecules can be released through the pores during an infrared sauna session.

PAIN RELIEF

Infrared wavelengths provide deep penetrating heat therapy to joints, muscles and tissues by increasing blood circulation and speeding oxygen flow to areas of discomfort. 

Doctors often recommend infrared heat therapy to patients with arthritis, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions. Infrared therapy is also widely used among athletes for relief from sports injuries.

DETOXIFICATION

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 80% of all illnesses have environmental and lifestyle causes.  In recent years, researchers point to the amount of toxins we’re exposed to daily—industrial chemicals, food additives, heavy metals, alcohol, drugs, caffeine—as a leading cause of disease. An inability to lose weight is also frequently associated with the body’s level of chemical toxicity.

Perspiration is a natural way of expelling these toxins from the body. Infrared saunas generate a sweat nearly 700% more detoxifying than traditional steam saunas. 

Detoxification via infrared sauna therapy is commonly recommended for those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity (also known as environmental illness), and fibromyalgia. 

IMPROVED BLOOD PRESSURE AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

The increased heart rate and cardiac output associated with infrared sauna therapy demonstrate how infrared sauna sessions also benefit the circulatory system. Studies indicate that regular use of an infrared sauna will improve cardiovascular health by lowering both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

A STRONGER IMMUNE SYSTEM

A weakening of the immune system is one of the many physiological effects of long-term stress. Stay healthy by taking advantage of the natural preventative properties of infrared.

Infrared heating technology aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense. Heat charges the immune system by promoting blood flow and oxygenation and increasing lymphatic drainage. This, in turn, slows the multiplication of viruses and bacteria in the body, thus aiding in the prevention of illness and infection.  

SKIN REJUVENATION

The removal of toxins from the body through perspiration is a key component to achieving healthy, radiant skin. 

Many infrared sauna users have reported a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles as well as improved skin tone and elasticity. Infrared therapy may also help burns and incisions heal faster and may make scars less visible.

Because of its ability to heal and rejuvenate skin, infrared therapy is often recommended for the treatment of skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and cellulite.


ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF CHROMOTHERAPY WITH EVERY

SAUNACUSE INFRARED SAUNA EXPERIENCE

Chromotherapy is a method of treatment that uses the full spectrum of visible light, also known as colors, to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Our bodies need sunlight to live. When there is an imbalance in these colors within our bodies, we can experience mental or physical distress. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help the body re-establish its natural balance. It accomplishes this via the full spectrum, each color of which addresses a separate bodily need.
