About Infrared Sauna
For centuries, the use of heat has been used as a healing modality. Sweat lodges, saunas, and hot air baths were used around the globe to increase relaxation and increase detoxification. Sauna technology continued to improve and now infrared lamp saunas are used by holistic practitioners and healers alike.
How We Can Help
While many saunas seen at health clubs or gyms use steam, infrared saunas use light to heat the body and intensify detoxification. Since the light only heats the body, and not the surrounding air, many feel infrared light is a more efficient way to use a sauna because not as much heat is needed. Since the room itself doesn’t heat up, these saunas are also ideal for those who can’t or shouldn’t be exposed to high temperatures.
Used in proper amounts, infrared saunas are safe to use, alleviate pain, and increase relaxation. In addition, these saunas can help lower high blood pressure as well as cholesterol levels, helping keep the heart healthy. The treatment can also help with chronic heart failure and arrhythmias.
There are many other health benefits when infrared saunas are used. Infrared lamps are capable of causing dramatic changes in body chemistry in some instances, helping restore balance in some people who suffer from chronic problems related to pains, inflammation, low energy and poor circulation.
Do you want to help alleviate your pain?
With its efficient use of light, and removing the amount of overall heat needed, infrared saunas are safe for almost everyone. This allows the sauna to create a healthy environment for a host of other medical issues, such as chronic muscle and joint pain, diabetes, digestive issues, and even anger or depression.
As with any healing modality, talk with your doctor about using an infrared sauna. Those with sensitive skin, a history of heart problems, or under medication should make sure it is safe to use.
