Have you ever thought about going into a sauna? If not, you should try it sometime. There are quite a few advantages of going into a sauna that people have experienced. Below are six benefits of infrared sauna therapy.
Sweating is one of your body’s best and most natural ways methods for eliminating toxins, which means it’s very important when it comes to detoxification. When you compare it with Swedish saunas, the infrared saunas let you eliminate approximately seven times the toxins.
Relaxation is promoted by sitting in an infrared sauna by helping with balancing the cortisol level in your body, which is the main stress hormone that is in the body. The heat that the sauna generates also will help with relaxing muscles and relieving tension through your body, letting you de-stress and relax.
3. Pain Relief
If you have problems with joint pain or muscle aches, an infrared sauna can help with relieving the inflammation by relaxing the muscles in your body and increasing your circulation.
4. Weight Loss
The heat that the sauna generates can increase your body’s core temperature. This helps with increasing your heart rate. This is what you experience when you are exercising. Anytime your body is working harder so that your core temperature is lowered or keeping up with a higher heart rate, more calories are going to be burned. It’s been said that sitting in a sauna for just thirty minutes can burn around 600 calories.
5. An Improvement in Circulation
As your body’s temperature is increased, you also will have better circulation. When you are always going and sitting in an infrared sauna, especially at a middle level, it can help with stimulating blood flow, decreasing inflammation and pain after an intense exercise session, and improving muscle recovery.
6. Purification of Skin
The technology from an infrared sauna can help with purifying your skin. The way it does this is by eliminating the toxins that are in your pores along with increasing circulation. This results in softer, healthier-looking, and clearer skin.
These are some of the benefits that you can find from sitting in a sauna. If you want to try it out, start with short sessions and see how well your body tolerates it. If you have any health problems consult your doctor to make sure it’s safe. It may help you with feeling better and looking better too!
