Far Infrared Health Sauna Benefits

Lower temperatures than traditional saunas
As the infrared sauna uses a completely different technology for heating the sauna than a traditional sauna, the sauna room doesn't have to be super heated to induce effective sweating. Infrared saunas can make the user sweat up to 3 times as much as a traditional sauna while operating at a lower temperature. Infrared saunas typically operate between 41-57 degrees Celsius whereas traditional saunas operate at around 92 degrees Celsius, making infrared saunas the choice for those who find extreme temperatures taxing and stressful on the body.

Increases blood circulation and strengthens cardiovascular systems
When the body's core temperature increases, the body will start to try to cool itself. The heart will beat faster to pump more blood, oxygen and water around the body in an effort to help it cool down. This cardiovascular activity effectively is similar to a run and has many of the same cardiovascular benefits. The Journal of the American Medical Association August 1981 states: "Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a Sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective, a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise".

Ease joint pain and stiffness
Infrared saunas can ease the pain muscular-skeletal ailments, muscle and tissue injuries with it's penetrating heat properties.

Removes toxins and mineral waste
Sweating in an infrared sauna can help to detoxify the body of harmful impurities, heavy metals, acids, sodium, nicotine, alcohol and many more substances.

Improves skin condition
Infrared saunas increase blood and nutrient supply to the capillaries through increased circulation which leaves the skin glowing and fresh after the infrared sauna session. The expulsion of toxins also helps to keep the skin looking youthful and vibrant. The infrared sauna may also relieve acne and give improved skin tone, colour and elasticity.

Strengthens the immune system
When the body's core temperature increases an artificial fever is induced. As the body thinks it has a fever its production of white blood cells increases, improving the body's overall resistance to foreign virus's.

Reduces stress and fatigue
When sitting back in the radiant heat of the infrared sauna, stress and tension melts away. After a session in an infrared sauna, you will feel refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated.
