If you want an easy way to detox effectively, alleviate pain throughout your body, reduce inflammation – and burn 200 – 600 calories in 30 minutes – then you’ll love hearing about our infrared sauna. While you might be hearing about infrared saunas for the first time, they aren’t anything new.
Heat therapy and saunas date back as far as the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, who used them to treat a wide range of conditions. Additionally, for centuries humans have used saunas for their numerous health benefits. Actually, in Finland, there is an average of one sauna per household – and they have reaped the health benefits.
Saunas have long been used for health and wellness around the world – we are offering this therapy so that you can reap these benefits as well.
What Is An Infrared Sauna?
While there are a few different types of saunas, they all refer to a space that’s heated to promote sweating. Infrared saunas specifically use infrared light, which has a specific wavelength that penetrates the skin to heat your body at its core. While that might sound a little intimidating, it’s actually extremely pleasant feeling and our patients really enjoy it. In fact, our doctors have a sauna at their house they use regularly.
Infrared saunas emit infrared light waves that heat the core of your body instead of the air around you. They are on an average 50 °F cooler ranging from 120 °– 140 °F instead of the agonizing 160 ° – 200 °F of traditional saunas. Due to this difference in air temperature, infrared saunas offer you a more comfortable and relaxing experience. Also, the infrared light promotes a more vigorous sweat since it penetrates deeper into your tissues than regular saunas.
You’ve probably experienced those stuffy, overheated saunas at health clubs. Where the heated air makes it extremely claustrophobic and difficult to enjoy. Infrared saunas are a superior, much more enjoyable option.
