The infrared sauna delivers the same benefits of traditional saunas - without the use of steam.
What is an infrared sauna?
An infrared sauna is a sauna that heats a person or people using heaters that emit radiant heat. They are different to a normal sauna in that they do not use steam to heat the air. Rather, they use infrared radiation to directly heat the person. The infrared waves penetrate into the body, raising the body temperature. This causes sweating which in turn eliminates wastes from the body. The infrared heat penetrates deep into the pores and cleans out dirt and debris, as well as clearing the organs of toxins, and strengthening the immune system.
What infrared saunas can be used for.
Infrared saunas can remove the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium and cholesterol. Whenever toxins accumulate, the blood circulation is blocked, due to the acidic nature of the toxins. The saunas expand the clogged capillary vessels and dissolve the toxins into the bloodstreams where they then leave the body through sweat, urine etc. As well as this amazing detoxification, infrared saunas can also be used to help with weight loss, skin problems like acne and many other health issues. They are also fantastic for relieving stress.
The calories used in half an hour in an infrared sauna is more than what would be used by a person running for the same amount of time.
