Infrared saunas are beneficial any time of the year, but I think spring beats it all. We need to detox our bodies, to shed some pounds to look and feel our absolute best! Not all infrared saunas are the same. Most saunas will only offer one level infrared rays. Our saunas incorporate 3 levels: near, mid and far infrared rays. That itself provides deeper benefits. But lets talk about what is Infrared sauna and what are the differences from a dry or steam sauna?The differences are endless.
Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, infrared sauna heats up your core to expel them. Instead of high heat reacting to your body and inducing sweat, infrared sauna heats core body and toxins leave with sweat. There are many other benefits that infrared sauna provides besides body Detox. Relaxation: when body is stressed, cortisol levels rise: increasing blood pressure and excess calories in the midsection. Scientific evidence shows that infrared sauna help maintain healthy levels of cortisol. With regular infrared sauna use, it has clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. With the inclusion of Sound Acoustic Vibrational Therapy, you won’t be able to find a more effective combination infrared sauna heat and musical massage to induce deep relaxation and tension relief.
In addition to benefits above, infrared heat technology burns calories, so it is also a weight loss treatment! Perfect alternative for clients who cannot participate in traditional cardio exercise. Burns 600 calories in 30 minutes.
Pain relief. Infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joins, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. It may heal body naturally from soreness, muscle spasms, sports injury, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and other chronic pain conditions. We continually receive “wows” from our clients about the fast benefits they experience.
Blood pressure reduction. Clinical studies have shown that Sunlighten’s Solocarbon heaters lower blood pressure through a program consisting of 30 minute infrared sauna sessions 3 times a week. Reason being, Sunlighten infrared sauna therapy dilates blood vessels and reduces the volume of their inner lining, which increases circulation to promote healthy blood pressure. Also, it has been depicted that infrared sauna treatments improve impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Circulation: Sunlighten produces an increase in blood flow by heating your muscles with infrared rays. This elevation in body temperature mirrors results from a cardiovascular workout and therefore gives the same benefits. When clients regularly use the infrared sauna in the mid-infrared range, blood flow is significantly stimulated, even after the health sauna session is completed.
Skin rejuvenation. After just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology, skin appearance improves significantly. What can be seen by clients is a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity, and firmness. What is important to note is that Sunlighten’s Solocarbon Custom Spectrum is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with near-infrared technology.
Wound healing: Sunlighten’s advanced Solocarbon Custom Spectrum heating technology is the only sauna that can heal wounds fast and minimize scarring through the usage of near infrared LEDs. Studies concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing and human issue growth.
Cell health, Muscle recovery & immunity: infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat faster and causes blood vessels to dilate, which helps cleanse the circulatory system and make the body’s cells more oxygenated. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system. Also, several studies have shown that LEDs, such as those found in the Sunlighten saunas, stimulate white blood cell production, which helps to better the immune system.
Lymphatic System and Infrared Sauna:
The lymph fluid is where our white blood cells are generated and stored. Our lymph vessels and nodes act like filters, purifying the cells to keep the immune system in fighting shape.
Another effective way to detoxify and strengthen the immune system is by using an infrared sauna. The detoxification process starts here; cortisol levels and blood pressure comes down. In the sauna, the lymph system is stimulated to expel any excess water. Swelling and inflammation are reduced. Growth hormone, beta endorphins, and prolactin levels rise in the blood during a sauna session. The boost in beta endorphins may account for some of the reduction in pain that many experience. The joints and tendons become more elastic. When we look at the ways our bodies eliminate toxins, in addition to the lymphatic system, we also rely on the liver, kidneys, lungs, blood, colon and the body’s largest organ, skin. The use of a sauna session allows the toxins to exit via sweat.
Infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which helps cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
