Infrared heaters emit infrared light which is experienced as radiant heat that is absorbed by the surface of the skin. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which, in turn, warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you. It makes the body sweat at lower temperatures so people tolerate it better.
Because infrared penetrates deeper, it also mobilizes and burns fat, which not only helps with weight loss but with detoxification as well since many of the toxins we absorb are surrounded and trapped by fat. When compared to traditional saunas, infrared allows you to eliminate seven times more toxins.
Infrared therapy promotes relaxation by helping balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by infrared will also help to relax the muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and destress.
If you suffer from muscle aches and joint pain, infrared can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.
As the heat from infrared increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sessions, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.
The heat generated by infrared will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate—the same increase in heart rate that you experience in exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss.
Infrared technology can purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increase circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier looking skin.
