Health Benefits of Infrared SaunasNovember 8th, 2011
Jay explains what he's learned about the health benefits of using an infrared sauna.
Be honest... when's the last time you spent 30 minutes on that exercise bike? How about the last time you drove to the gym and actually used that expensive membership you bought last year? OK, enough with the quilt trip. Let me tell you about an easier way to improve your health.
If you're looking for a way to improve your health without buying expensive exercise equipment or paying for costly gym memberships, then an infrared sauna may be just what the doctor ordered! Just like a balanced diet, regular sleep and daily exercise, a sauna can be part of a healthy lifestyle. Sauna sessions can improve your health in a number of ways.
Some of the benefits include:
- Relieves sore joints
- Releases harmful toxins from the skin
- Decreases chronic health problems and side-effects
- Burns calories
It's not your fathers steam sauna anymore!
Today's infrared sauna technology is far superior to the old, steam saunas you may be familiar with. Unlike steam, infrared heat doesn't actually increase your body's temperature. Instead, just like the sun's infrared rays, our saunas gently warm the body's surface, penetrating just enough to soothe muscle tissue and relax blood vessels, but without the sun's harmful UV rays that can damage skin. So you never get too hot or feel dizzy or lightheaded. In fact, infrared saunas are recommended for people who, due to ailments, are unable to tolerate high heat in general.
Lower your blood pressure and loose weight
Consistent use of home saunas has been linked to lower blood pressure, increased circulation and a faster and longer burning metabolism. Just one session in a sauna is enough to burn up to 600 calories and release toxins from the skins surface. No need for heart-pounding, joint-jamming, high-intensity workout routines. Saunas have been linked to so many health benefits, even the mainstream media is picking up on the story. Here's Dr. Oz explaining the positive effects of saunas on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Great for de-stressing
Besides all the health benefits, my personal sauna is just a great way to de-stress and unwind. After a long day, it feels great to step in and get away from all of life's distractions, and at the end of each session, I feel energized and stress-free. And there aren't any negative side-effects. Our sauna kits are ISO 9001 certified and exceed EPA standards for low Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) levels.
They're beautiful, too!
Our line of Perfect Heat home saunas are beautiful to look at, too. You might hide the unsightly exercise bike in another room or fold away the sit-up machine and tuck it under the bed, but our saunas are made to look great anywhere in the house. They're made from 100% North American Hemlock and Cedar and finished just like a piece of furniture, with beautiful hardware and bronze tinted safety glass doors and windows. And there are sizes and designs to fit practically any room, from compact 1-person and 2-person models to large 6-person units and even 3-person and 4-person corner models to maximize floor space.
In today's fast-paced society, it's rare to find a technology that actually reduces stress instead of increasing it, but infrared sauna technology delivers great results right in the comfort of your own home. You'll never want to buy expensive workout equipment or pay costly gym membership fees again.
