An Infrared Sauna is a type of Sauna that will use black carbon, ceramic, or metallic elements in order to heat the area. Infrared Sauna’s make the same rays as the sun; however this type of sauna will filter the UV radiation out. Like magic, the skin absorbs these rays without generating the amount of heat you'd typically expect from a sauna. The temperature in an infrared sauna can reach around 120 to 140 degrees, however in a normal sauna the temperatures can get around 150 to 185 degrees.
There are many health benefits to using an infrared sauna, a few of which include:
• Lower blood pressure • Loosen up your muscles • Eliminate toxins in your body • Burn calories • Help with blood flow and circulation throughout your body
One of the key benefits of an infrared sauna is burning unwanted calories. While your body detoxifies, you are also dissipating heat and burning calories the entire time. One session in a sauna can actually burn up to 700 calories without a workout! If you're feeling feeling ill or have a cold an infrared sauna will open up an individual’s chest and help them eliminate toxins from their body. If you are someone who suffers from arthritis and body aches; you can go into a sauna and sit down to help relax your muscles and get rid of aches. If you are someone who is suffering from high blood pressure because of your stress levels, then allow yourself to spend thirty minutes in an infrared sauna and feel the stress slowly melt away. These things really are pretty amazing, and inexpensive as well.
People who decide to use an infrared sauna benefit from the usage, even though a number of people tend to have a negative perspective when it comes to using one. It may not seem like a practical idea having one in your home, and yesterday's wisdom may have you thinking the high heat isn't good for you, but that's simply not the case any longer. The lower humidity in these saunas is also a big help if you struggle to breathe in more standard, excessively steamy saunas as well. Head to a local retailer or just shop for one online and see what you think!
