Infrared Saunas run upwards of 90°F. This dry heat stimulates blood flow by increasing the heart rate and widening blood vessels. The increased circulation brings oxygen to sore muscles and joints that use it to repair tissues.
Dry Saunas have also been used for:
Detox from a Sunlighten™ sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Sunlighten sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!
Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy. Studies show therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain, or any conditions that fall under the HRP classification.
A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories. The body works to cool itself while in the infrared sauna. During that time there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat.
Lower Blood Pressure
The infrared sauna was shown to lower blood pressure from doing 30 minute sauna sessions three times a week. Repeated infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This also suggests that repeated use may help with arteriosclerosis.
Open wounds have been know to heal quicker with reduced scarring. Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, firms, improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly.
Heating of muscles with infrared produces improved circulation, increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow through vasodilation. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.
