Benefits of Infrared Saunas

Infrared Heat therapy harnesses the wavelengths present in both the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight to naturally elevate body temperature. Infrared saunas function by raising your body’s temperature, with the infrared light penetrating approximately 4-5cm below the skin’s surface. Each session enhances the cardiovascular system, increases muscle blood circulation, promotes metabolism, and supports natural detoxification through perspiration.

Evidence suggests that sessions in the sauna can enhance the production of human growth hormone (HGH), a vital element in the repair of muscles and tissues.

Saunas possess the capacity to alleviate delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and tension, thereby expediting the recovery process post-workout and improving an athlete’s preparedness for subsequent training sessions.

Provide Pain Relief and Improve Mobility

The heated environment encourages the release of anti-inflammatory compounds, leading to diminished pain and enhanced flexibility.

As per a study, sauna therapy exhibited a reduction in markers of oxidative stress, a possible contributor to inflammation. Regular therapy sessions over time may result in life-enhancing benefits, positively influencing overall well-being.

Improve Sleep Quality

Thermal therapy triggers the release of endorphins, offering relief from pain and muscle soreness, fostering relaxation, and enhancing overall sleep quality.

A session in the sauna can have a significant impact on sleep patterns.

By increasing your core temperature in the sauna or Infrared Saunas just before bedtime and then stepping out to allow rapid cooling, your body experiences a temperature drop that prepares you for a deep and restful sleep. The combination of warmth and solitude also contributes to relaxation and unwinding.

Promote Cardiovascular Health

The elevated temperatures in high-quality saunas (around 80 degrees) are thought to contribute to enhanced cardiovascular health. In a sauna, the heart rate can increase to around 100 beats per minute during moderate temperatures and up to 150 beats per minute during hotter sessions, mirroring the rises seen in moderate exercise.

In a study involving 19 healthy adults, the effects of a single 25-minute sauna session were found to be akin to those of moderate physical exercise in terms of cardiovascular measures. Similar to the benefits of exercise, regular sauna use typically leads to improved blood pressure, endothelial function, and left ventricular function, while also reducing inflammation.

Rejuvenate Your Skin

Regular utilization of saunas and Infrared Saunas can yield impressive results for the skin and its overall vitality. The interplay of steam, heightened temperature, sweating, and enhanced circulation fosters collagen production, offering substantial advantages for the regeneration of skin cells, as well as deeply cleansing and revitalizing the skin.

Facilitate Stress Relief and Relaxation

Infrared Saunas provide profound stress relief through multiple mechanisms. The warmth, seclusion, and heightened temperature collectively induce muscle relaxation, improve circulation, and stimulate the release of endorphins.

Understanding Infrared Saunas and Their Mechanism

In contrast to traditional saunas that heat the air, infrared saunas emit thermal infrared rays, directly heating the body. This sauna type utilizes an infrared spectrum comprising near, mid, and far-infrared technology, each offering distinct health benefits.

– Near-infrared, with the shortest wavelength, absorbs beneath the skin’s surface, promoting wound healing, skin health, and cell regeneration.

– Mid-infrared, with a slightly longer wavelength, penetrates deeper into the body’s soft tissue, expediting the healing process and providing pain relief during inflammation.

– Far-infrared, having a longer wavelength than near- and mid-infrared, penetrates even deeper, enhancing circulation and facilitating toxin removal through sweating.

On a molecular level, the absorption of infrared radiation triggers transitions from a ground state to an excited vibrational state. Upon returning to its original state, the released energy manifests as heat.

Despite mimicking the sun’s rays, the sauna does not employ UV rays.

Preparation Tips for Your Infrared Sauna Session

Before your initial session, selecting the appropriate temperature and duration is crucial for an enjoyable experience without overexertion.

Staying well-hydrated before a session is essential to avoid lightheadedness or overheating. It’s advisable to refrain from a session if you have a fever or have recently consumed alcohol.

Usage is not recommended for individuals with severe health conditions, pregnant individuals, or those currently under medical care. Always consult with and obtain clearance from your doctor before scheduling an appointment.

By penetrating the skin and internally warming the body, infrared saunas boost blood circulation and stimulate sweat glands, efficiently eliminating metabolic waste. Replicating the effects of cardiovascular exercise, these sessions facilitate calorie burning and promote weight loss. However, it’s essential to acknowledge the limitation of targeted fat loss. While the sessions can expedite overall increased matabolism, they do not specifically address fat reduction in particular areas.
Gradually introducing your body to any new activity is vital for adaptation and to maximize the associated health benefits of infrared heat. Therefore, when starting out, it is recommended to keep sessions shorter and well-spaced. We propose initiating with a 55-degree infrared sauna and gradually advancing to higher temperatures. Ideally, begin with a session lasting between 20 to 30 minutes, adjusting the duration based on your specific goals. Our sauna sessions range from 20 minutes to 45 minutes, each carefully designed to meet the unique requirements of your body.
For individuals beginning their wellness journey, it is advised to initiate with an average of 3-4 sessions per week, each lasting 20-30 minutes, to fully reap the benefits. Pay attention to your body’s response after each session, gradually increasing the frequency, and eventually integrating daily sessions as you advance.
While any time is appropriate for a session, the optimal timing depends on the specific benefits you are seeking. A morning session is an excellent way to kickstart the day and start with renewed energy. If you encounter sleep challenges, choosing an evening session 2-3 hours before bedtime will foster relaxation and prepare your body for a restful sleep.
