Infrared Sauna

Saunas have been around for over 2000 years, originating in ancient bathhouses in Northern Europe around 2000 B.C.

Originally used for therapy and relaxation, saunas offer a way to rejuvenate both body and mind. Recent research shows that infrared saunas bring many benefits, including improved mental health, metabolism, heart health, hormone balance, recovery, cognitive function, and longevity.

 Sweating is one of the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms. Infrared saunas can promote detoxification by inducing a deep sweat, helping to flush out harmful substances and heavy metals from your system.

Infrared saunas can help muscles recuperate after a strenuous workout or physical activity. The gentle heat helps increase blood circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to fatigued muscles, promoting faster healing and reducing muscle soreness.

Regular infrared sauna sessions can help boost your immune system. The increased body temperature triggers a response similar to a mild fever, stimulating the production of white blood cells and enhancing immune function.

Infrared saunas can increase your metabolism, promoting calorie burn and assisting weight management. The heat raises your heart rate, boosting circulation and increasing energy expenditure..

Spending time in an infrared sauna promotes relaxation and reduces stress. The soothing heat helps relax tense muscles and releases endorphins, the body’s natural “feel-good” chemicals, promoting a sense of well-being.

Sweating opens up pores, flushes out impurities and promotes clearer, more radiant skin. Increased blood flow also delivers vital nutrients to the skin, promoting a healthy complexion.

The heat generated by infrared saunas directly heats your body, rather than heating the surrounding air like traditional saunas. This allows for a more efficient and deeper penetration of heat into the body, resulting in a more intense sweating experience at lower temperatures.

The lower heat levels in infrared saunas make them more tolerable for individuals who may find traditional saunas uncomfortably hot.

Using an infrared sauna alone won’t lead to significant weight loss, however, it can be a complementary component of a holistic weight loss plan.

The heat from the sauna will increase heart rate, metabolic rate, and promote sweating, which may contribute to calorie burning.

Additionally, the relaxation and stress-reducing effects of infrared saunas can help reduce emotional eating and promote better sleep, which are both important factors in weight management.

It’s crucial to remember that sustainable weight loss requires a combination of healthy eating, regular exercise, and a balanced lifestyle.

Ideally, regular sessions 4 or more times a week offer the best results for improved relaxation, better sleep, enhanced skin health, and a strengthened immune system. However, it’s essential to consult a healthcare professional before starting any new therapeutic regimen, especially if you have underlying health conditions.

Start by spending shorter sessions inside your sauna, then increase by a few minutes each time. If you feel lightheaded or nauseous, take a break or drink some fluids.

Spend no more than 30-40 minutes in any one sauna session.

The ideal sauna temperature setting is between 45°C and 60°C. You should start sweating within 10 to 15 minutes, and if not, you may need to increase the temperature by 5° increments.

A note of caution: It’s important to not allow your body’s core temperature to rise above 39.4°C. Otherwise, the result could be hyperthermia, which includes symptoms like dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness, and fainting. Additionally, excessive hyperthermia may include failure to perceive heat, failure to recognise the need to exit, unawareness of impending hazards, physical inability to exit the sauna and unconsciousness.

Some people will notice immediate effects such as relaxation, improved sleep, or a sense of well-being after a single session. However, for more long-term benefits, regular and consistent use is recommended.

As with any wellness practice, individual results may vary based on factors such as overall health, frequency of use, and adherence to a healthy lifestyle. It’s important to consult with your healthcare professional to determine the most suitable approach for your specific needs.
