Enjoying the Benefits of Sauna

With all the stresses of daily life, spending time for relaxation has become more important than ever before. According to an estimate by the American Institute of Stress, stress-related problems comprise about 75 to 90 percent of the reasons for primary care visits.

A convenient and healthy way to get some quality relaxation is to sweat it out in an infrared sauna. Even a quick 15-minute sauna session can help balance your body’s cortisol levels. Cortisol is the primary stress hormone in the human body, and it is responsible for putting the body in a “fight or flight” condition. At this mode, your blood pressure is raised and your heart beats faster. In the long run, frequent exposure to this condition can cause you to accumulate visceral fat much faster.

The heat from a sauna also helps relax the muscles and improve blood circulation, which in turn help relieve overall tension in the body. If you suffer from muscle aches or frequent pain, you’ll find a sauna beneficial to your wellbeing. A regular sauna session may also contribute to skin purification as the sweating helps clear the pores.

Thanks to modern technology, you can now obtain your very own portable infrared sauna that is easy to disassemble and re-assemble whenever it needs to be moved to a new room or a new home. Even better, this type of sauna emits heat that is absorbed by the body (not the air), and thereby allows for quicker perspiration and detoxification.
