When it comes to sauna treatments, I believe we’ve all heard or read that they can effectively soothe the mind and relax the body. What some of you might not know yet is that infrared saunas, especially portable ones, are becoming more and more popular. Before I tell you why it is so, let me inform or remind you what kind of saunas infrared saunas are.
Infrared saunas are saunas that use light to create heat. They, unlike traditional saunas, heat the body directly without warming the air around it. Infrared saunas offer a number of amazing health benefits at lower, gentler temperatures, which makes them ideal for those who can’t tolerate the heat of traditional saunas. With the help of a portable infrared sauna dome, you can reap all the infrared sauna health benefits in the comfort of your own home. Read on to find out how you can benefit from regular sessions in an infrared sauna.
By balancing the body’s level of cortisol, its primary stress hormone, infrared sauna sessions promote relaxation and improve sleep. Furthermore, scientists claim that the heat of infrared saunas travels much deeper into the body, reaching, relaxing and invigorating many muscles, ligaments, and organs.
Infrared sauna treatments cause increased sweating, which is one of the human body’s most natural ways to heal and eliminate all the toxic agents that routinely accumulate in it. Some experts say that infrared saunas allow us to remove about seven times more toxins than traditional Swedish ones. Detoxification is an extremely important piece of the health puzzle because it strengthens the immune system and improves the body’s biochemical processes.
Scientists believe that infrared sauna treatments make the heart pump faster, which results in increased blood flow, reduced blood pressure and normalized cholesterol levels. Some of they say that spending 15 minutes a day in a portable infrared sauna dome can improve your heart health and ease symptoms associated with chronic pain.
Studies have shown that a 30-minute infrared sauna session encourages the body to burn up to 600 calories, promoting weight loss. Since infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature as well as the heart rate, the body is forced to work harder to lower the increased temperature or to keep up with the increased heart rate. That’s precisely why it burns so many calories while you sweat and relax in your own portable infrared sauna dome.
Warm infrared rays expand blood vessels and effectively clean clogged pores, thus resulting in cleaner and more youthful looking skin.
