How Infrared Sauna varies from Traditional Sauna
According to an article titled Infrared Sauna Benefits, in WorldHealth.Net, Infrared and traditional saunas differ by temperature and heating methods. Traditional saunas use convection heat to warm the room which in turn warms the body from the outside in a dry heat. Infrared saunas, however, use radiating heat that is more evenly distributed to penetrate more deeply into the skin, warming the body rather than the room outside it.
Benefits of using an Infrared Sauna include:
Detoxification - Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional, Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins.
Relaxation - Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and destress.
Pain Relief - If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.
Weight Loss - The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising.
Improved Circulation - As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it.
Skin Purification - Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.
If you are looking for a way to warm up while relaxing and detoxifying your body, the Infrared Sauna will provide these and many more benefits, as you can see here.
