Benefits of an Infrared Heat Sauna

These days, people are constantly exposed to various chemicals and pollutants. Couple this with a sedentary lifestyle, this becomes a recipe for toxicity in the literal sense of the word. One method of detoxifying the body is the infrared heat sauna, which is a type of sauna that uses infrared to warm the body directly, instead of heating the air around the body.

The advantage of this type of sauna compared to conventional ones is that it produces heat in a shorter time period, which is great if you are trying to squeeze in some time for this at the end of a long day at the office.

Another benefit is how it detoxifies and cleanses the body by inducing sweating in a person without requiring strenuous physical activity. Sweating is one of the body’s way of expelling toxins, which is why there is always a feeling of being “refreshed” associated with any activity that induces sweating.

Yet another advantage is how the infrared sauna increases the heart rate, which is similar to the effects of mild exercise. While it may help your body burn more calories, it is worth noting that a sauna alone will not replace actual exercise.

Finally, regular use of an infrared sauna helps improve circulation, as it stimulates blood flow. This further helps detoxification and serves as the perfect R&R after a stressful week at work or after a rigorous workout.
