Unveiling the Natural Health Benefits of Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna

Welcome to the world of relaxation, rejuvenation and healing! This blog will deep dive into the realm of full spectrum infrared saunas, a holistic approach to well-being that has gained significant popularity in recent years with the likes of celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift and Josh Rogan. In this blog, we’ll explore the many benefits of infrared saunas. So, grab your towel, get ready to sweat and embark on a journey towards improved health and vitality!

At the heart of the full spectrum infrared sauna lies the remarkable ability of infrared waves to penetrate deep into your body, generating a gentle and therapeutic heat. Unlike traditional saunas that rely on hot air to warm the room, infrared saunas use infrared light to directly heat your body, promoting a more intense and detoxifying sweat session. The build to body heat feels a lot like sitting in the morning sun. Benefits of Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas:

  1. Detoxification

    Sweat your way to health. Sweating is one of the most effective ways to eliminate toxins from your body. Deep sweat can assist in flushing out heavy metals, environmental pollutants and other harmful substances that accumulate in our bodies over time.

  2. Improved Circulation

    As infrared waves penetrate your skin, they stimulate blood flow and promote vasodilation, resulting in improved circulation. Enhanced blood circulation carries vital oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, tissues and organs which aid in their repair and revitalisation. Studies have shown that 2-3 infrared sauna sessions reduce cardiovascular disease by 22%.

  3. Boost Immune System

    Heat Shock Proteins (HSPs) are a group of proteins produced by cells in response to stressors such as heat, cold, infection and inflammation. Exposing your body to heat generated by an infrared sauna can trigger a heat stress response in your cells, resulting in increased production of HSPs. HSPs play a crucial role in cellular protection, they help stabilize and refold damaged proteins, promote cellular repair mechanisms and enhance cellular resilience to stress.

  4. Relaxation and Stress Relief

    Infrared Sauna provides a tranquil escape from the stresses of daily life. The soothing heat helps relax your muscles, relieve tension and release endorphins, leading to a sense of calm and inner peace. It's a perfect opportunity to unwind and recharge both physically and mentally.

  5. Pain Relief

    Many people find relief from chronic pain conditions, such as arthritis and muscle soreness. The deep heat penetrates joints and tissues reduces inflammation and alleviates discomfort.

  6. Improve Skin Health

    Improved circulation and oxygenation of the skin also promote healthy skin and a more youthful appearance. Near Infrared falls within the wavelength of 700-1400 which stimulates collagen production, improving skin firmness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, leading to improved skin tone and texture.

  7. Support Weight Loss

    Increasing your heart metabolic rate can burn anywhere between 200-600 calories. Chronic stress is also associated with weight gain and difficulties in weight loss. Infrared sauna therapy may indirectly support weight loss by promoting relaxation and reducing stress.

Full-spectrum infrared saunas operate at a more moderate temperature range of 40-600C. This lower temperature provides a comfortable environment for a longer, more enjoyable session without the intense heat. As a result, individuals with heat sensitivity or cardiovascular concerns can still reap the benefits of sauna therapy. Typically, settings in an Infrared Saunas are 550C and 650C. The range offers a slightly different experience;

  • 550C This temperature provides all the benefits of an infrared sauna while offering a milder and more comfortable experience. It is preferable for most individuals who are sensitive to heat or find higher temperatures uncomfortable. This temperature is also suitable for individuals who wish to spend longer in the sauna without feeling overwhelmed.
  • 600C -700C This higher temperature setting will result in a more intense sweat-inducing sauna session, which in turn may lead to more significant detoxification.

Ultimately, the temperature setting for an infrared sauna should be chosen based on individual preferences and tolerance to heat. It is recommended to start at 550C and adjust in the following sessions if you would rather have a more significant detox.

Full Spectrum infrared saunas offer a plethora of benefits from detoxification and improved circulation to relaxation and pain relief. With their comfortable operating temperature and deep-penetrating infrared waves, these saunas provide an inviting option for anyone seeking an enjoyable and effective means of enhancing their overall well-being. Sweat your way to health!
