It’s that time of year; the nights are getting longer, the days shorter and much colder and you sit at home in the evenings lacking the enthusiasm to get out and go on that run in the freezing weather. You’d rather be somewhere warm, like the Spa, relaxing in the Sauna – what if we told you this is achievable without even leaving the house? Relax, we have you covered with our range of Infrared Saunas, and today we’re going to look at some of benefits of our Saunas, and why you definitely need one.
1: Saunas Promote Weight Loss
You read that right. A Sauna lowers blood pressure & at the same time raises your heart rate – exactly the same as you’d experience with normal cardiovascular exercises. We’re not saying it’s a replacement for going to the gym, but it’s certainly better than doing nothing and we can guarantee you’ll feel super relaxed.
2: Stress Reduction
Whilst we have you on the subject, who can honestly say they wouldn’t like to lower the stresses of day to day life? If you’re stressed to the max your body really struggles to eliminate bad toxins. Using an Infrared Sauna will effectively take you into a Parasympathetic mode – a stress free, and relaxed mode which promotes self healing and detoxification.
3: Improves Blood Circulation and Oxygenation
The science behind it, is that in an Infrared sauna your body temperature rises so any blood vessels would dilate and increase the blood flow, and in doing this you heavily increase oxygen delivery to your organs, muscles, tissues and really boost recovery time. Feeling the strains of your daily routine could soon become a thing of the past.
4: Reduce The Risk For Heart Disease
So you’ve improved your blood pressure, boosted more oxygen into your system. Certain studies have shown that using a Sauna will actually reduce the risk of cardio based disease. Now if that’s not a reason to look into the Infrared Saunas I don’t know what is.
5: Aids In Pain Relief
A few different studies are showing that Infrared is actually very beneficial to significantly decreasing discomfort with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. One study took 30 patients who stated improvements in Pain and Stiffness were “statistically significant”. But at the other end of the spectrum 10 Endurance Athletes took part in an Infrared Sauna study and the experts saw that the deeply penetrating Infrared promoted faster recovery time for the men.
Do we think Infrared is as wonderful as it sounds? Absolutely!
But as with anything, it all needs to be done safely and in moderation. My advice for anyone considering one of these fantastic Saunas is just this: – If you’re new to infrared saunas, I would recommend starting out with 4-minute sessions at 160-180 degrees Fahrenheit and slowly working your way up to 15- to 30-minute sessions. And why not? A sauna not only feels good, it’s good for your body. Whether it’s the physiological changes that occur during the warmth of a sauna, or if it’s simply the time spent in the calming and still retreat of the sauna, every sizzling sauna bather agrees – it feels amazing. Perhaps it’s time you did something for you, what have you got to lose?
