WHAT IS INFRARED HEAT THERAPY?
Sweating is your body’s natural way of staying healthy. Our Clearlight Infrared Sauna was designed to give you a relaxing detoxifying experience through the use of infrared heat.
Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air.
Besides just helping you feel good here area few more benefits of infrared sauna therapy sessions:
Detoxing in an infrared sauna rids your body of up to 10 times more toxins. In an infrared sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water. In a traditional sauna, the average person only sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water.
Muscle Pain Relief and Joint stiffness
Infrared heat therapy can treat minor aches and pains and improve chronic conditions such as arthritis. Research shows that conditions classified as Heat Responsive Pain (HRP), such as upper body and lower back pain, improve dramatically with the use of continuous, low-level heat therapy.
Time spent in an infrared sauna benefits patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. Radiant heat has also been effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.
Weight Loss & Increased Metabolism
You can burn up to 600 calories in a 30-minute infrared sauna session! During an infrared sauna session, the body works to cool itself which results in an increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Using an infrared sauna also helps to rise core body temperature, causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body will then naturally increase circulation and sweat.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Research shows that blood pressure lowers when using infrared saunas on a regular basis. Consistent infrared heat therapy repairs blood vessel function in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Infrared treatments increase blood flow and heat muscles as if you are exercising. During an infrared sauna session, your body temperature is elevated and blood flow increases. The improved circulation helps to eliminate inflammation and edema, decrease pain, and accelerate healing.
Regular infrared sauna sessions will improve your skins appearance. Infrared heat therapy helps to correct skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis, and heal burns or other wounds. It also reduces wrinkles by improving skin tone and elasticity. with the increase in blood flow, a decrease in cellulite is also possible.
Immune System Boost
The deep heating from the Clearlight Sauna infrared heaters will raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. How does this benefit the body? Fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
Improves appearance of cellulite
Cellulite refers to superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or “orange peel” skin. It appears in 90% of post-adolescent women and is rarely seen in men.
Since the far infrared radiant heat of the Clearlight Sauna® warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite. There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells.
Sauna use and far infrared heat can increase heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends towards the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Stress and Fatigue Reduction
Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna will help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed. Infrared Saunas have also been shown to affect the autonomic nervous system putting you in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state allowing your body to heal.
