Infrared Sauna new Hero in Wellness Industry - gives workout, is therapeutic and restorative!
Infrared Sauna's are the new "bio hack" people are turning to for a myriad of health benefits. It gets your heart rate up - so is actually a workout! Burning on average, around 600 calories per hour. 60 minutes in the infrared sauna is the equivalent of going for a 60 minute slow jog. Plus, like exercise, the infrared sauna releases endorphins, reduces cortisol and leaves you on a natural "high."
Unlike traditional sauna's, infrared sauna's use infrared heat heat your body, not the air. This is a natural way of heating the body -the same heat that comes from the sun! So the air does not get hot and unpleasant like it can in a traditional sauna, your jewelry and hair won't heat up and you won't find it hard to breathe. Plus the infrared rays penetrate a couple of cm's deeper into the body than traditional sauna heat, so your muscles benefit from the deeper penetration. Some people think hotter is better, but that is not true, having your infrared sauna anywhere between 45 to 59 degrees celsius will produce beneficial results.
Studies show that Infrared sauna's are seven times more detoxifying than traditional saunas. Which in today's world, is a must - as we're surrounded by radiation and heavy metals. Infrared sauna is one of the most effective ways of eliminating toxic metals from your body. Plus infrared waves kills all bacteria and viruses in the air - so it is hygienic and safe place.
Start slow, if you haven't had an infrared sauna before start with 30 minutes and work your way up. Always be well hydrated before and after you sauna, because you will lose body fluids in sweat.
