There’s a new weight-loss trend in town – Infrared Saunas! A-List celebrities like the Kardashians, Dr. Oz, Chelsea Handler, and Gwyneth Paltrow, among many others, have widely endorsed this treatment. 

An infrared sauna does not heat the air around you like a traditional sauna does. These instead use infrared lamps that emit electromagnetic radiation. A traditional sauna harnesses heat to warm the air which then warms the body. The infrared sauna, on the other hand, heats up the body directly without heating the air around you. 

Infrared saunas have been gaining massive popularity because they are able to mimic the effects of moderate exercise. How? Well, they induce similar reactions by increasing the heart rate and the amount of sweating. 

What are the Benefits of an Infrared Sauna?

There is significant scientific research suggesting that infrared saunas can aid in the recovery of chronic health issues like congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, dementia, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, to name just a few, with the adverse effects being little to none.

How Infrared Saunas Work

The sun’s rays are divided into visible and invisible light. Infrared saunas utilize infrared light, invisible light, that is the healthiest of the sun’s rays and penetrates deeply into the skin to dissolve harmful bacteria that collect in the body. These rays are able to penetrate up to an inch of soft tissue to reduce joint and muscle pain, detoxify the body and burn fat cells. Infrared rays also rejuvenate damaged tissue and boost the metabolism.

While traditional saunas are between 150 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit, infrared saunas are typically between 120 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit and provide amazing cardiovascular benefits.

Because of their ability to penetrate the skin deeply, these infrared rays increase metabolic rate and can aid the body in burning anywhere between 200 to 600 calories in a 30-minute session. 

Some of the key benefits that you may experience after your infrared sauna session;

– Allows for a more rested sleep

– Stimulates weight loss

– Relieves sore muscles

– Relieves joint pain

– Improves skin tone and reduces signs of aging

– Stimulates blood circulation and increases collagen production

– Flushes out bodily toxins and enhances the overall appearance

How to Prepare For Your Infrared Sauna Session

We recommend following certain guidelines to get the most out of your sauna session. 

Stay Hydrated

Drink a glass of water before your session. Your body tends to get dehydrated after being exposed to the warm sauna environment. If you’re sensitive to higher temperatures, we recommend bringing a bottle of water with you inside the sauna. 

Start Slow

If this is your first session, start with 10-15 minutes and you can add minutes with each subsequent session. First-time users also start out at 100 degrees Fahrenheit so as not to get too dehydrated and then up that temperature to 150 degrees gradually as the sessions progress. 

Wear the Right Clothing

Wear clothing that won’t make you itchy or uncomfortable. You need to give your skin room to breathe and sweat out the toxins. Some people go in naked while others prefer to don a bathing suit. 

Things You Can Do During Your Session

This is totally up to you! Meditate, listen to your favorite tunes, read a book, take a nap, Facetime with friends, relax – whatever puts you at ease!

After the Session is Over

After your session, drink plenty of water and wait for your body to cool down before you take a shower or bath. Most prefer to opt for 3 to 4 sessions a week to get the best therapeutic outcome.
