Infrared saunas produce the same infrared heat produced by the sun, without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off. Infrared heat is required for all living things, for optimum health. The radiant heat from an infrared sauna surrounds you & penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles & tissues increasing oxygen flow & circulation both blood & lymphatic ( the one responsible for taking away the nasty toxins we don't want in our bodies!) Using an Infrared sauna helps to remove impurities from your cells, specifically the cells inside our fat where our body stores waste & harmful toxins such as cholesterol & heavy metals. When used properly, infrared saunas will help improve your overall wellness, listed below are just some of the benefits you will feel from your session in the Infrared Sauna at Bliss Beauty, why not even have an add on prior to your visit to the spa suites for a pampering with our VOYA therapists.
Benefits of Infrared Sauna Treatments
The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in an Infrared sauna carries off deeply embedded impurities & dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing & immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. You’ll see improved tone, elasticity, texture & fresh colour. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions & cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly thus reducing scarring.
One of the biggest infrared sauna health benefits is its ability to increase your blood circulation & stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins in the body. Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals (lead, mercury, nickel, & cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, & other organic & inorganic compounds.
Reduces Stress & Fatigue
Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna will help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated & renewed. Many sauna customers comment on how much they look forward to their Infrared Sauna session, as it’s a great time to get away & release any built-up tension & stress. Infrared Saunas have also been shown to affect the autonomic nervous system putting you in the parasympathetic (rest & digest) state allowing your body to heal.
Muscle Pain Relief
Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products & delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. Muscles relax best when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility & range of motion. Far Infrared heat relieves muscle tension & the deep heat of far infrared saunas help peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief & healing to muscle & soft tissue injuries. Infrared heat also reduces soreness on nerve endings & muscle spasms as muscle joints & fibers are heated.
Weight Loss & Increased Metabolism
It has been scientifically proved that regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system to running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood & burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will in turn burn calories whats not to love about that!
Boosts Your Immune System
The deep heating from the Infrared sauna heaters will raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. How does this benefit the body? Fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen & accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins & wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health & resistance to disease.
Improves the Appearance of Cellulite
Cellulite refers to superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or “orange peel” skin. It appears in 90% of post-adolescent women & is rarely seen in men. Common but not exclusive areas where cellulite is found are the buttocks, thighs, & the abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, & the appearance of cellulite is not always reduced by weight loss. Since the far infrared radiant heat of an Infrared Sauna warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite. There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates & the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use & far infrared heat can increase heart rate & localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends towards the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Eases Joint Pain & Stiffness
Time spent in an infrared sauna benefits patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. Radiant heat has also been effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, muscle spasms, joint stiffness & many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches & soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.
