  • Four Ways to a Healthy You with Infrared Saunas


    Many sauna users are unfamiliar with infrared saunas, and may not know about the health benefits this type of sauna can provide. Here are just a few:

    Lower Blood Pressure
    Infrared saunas differ from normal saunas in that they make the same rays that come from the sun without the UV radiation, leaving only the infrared rays. These rays are then lightly absorbed into the skin. The reason heating the body is important is that it is shown that people who take saunas a couple of times per week actually lower their blood pressure. The infrared sauna environment is also a more comfortable temperature than sitting in a heated traditional sauna environment. These saunas excel due to the fact that they do not hurt your lungs if you take a deep breath.

    We speak about the benefits infrared saunas have on detoxification in our Sauna FAQ. The main thing we want to stress is to wash your skin once you exit the sauna to get the toxins off your skin and refresh your system.

    Weight Loss
    We also mentioned the benefits of weight loss that come from using an infrared sauna in our Sauna FAQ. It increases blood circulation, makes your heart beat faster, and helps you to burn more calories. Hats off to burning calories!

    Extend Your Life
    A major benefit of infrared saunas is helping to extend your life. Medical researchers have long reported on the health benefits of infrared sauna therapy. It helps support those who suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and even autism. The circulatory and blood pressure lowering benefits are a major plus! Infrared saunas also help to extend your life, and the overall quality of your life, by aiding in relaxation. With all the stress experienced in today's fast-paced life, saunas help you take a moment and fully relax.

  • Infrared Saunas: Some Straight Talk


    What are these infrared saunas? How do they differ from traditional saunas, and how can they benefit your health? How do you use one? Let's answer a few of those questions, and then you can browse our infrared sauna products:

    1 – Not as Hot and Heavy
    Have you seen scenes of saunas or steam rooms in movies or on television? People sitting in a haze of steam and heat, sweating and looking like they've been broiled? Traditional saunas heat the air, but infrared saunas use infrared radiant heat that heats the body on contact, but leaves the air at its ambient temperature. This makes it easier to stay in the sauna longer.

    2 – Detoxification
    The human body comes into contact with toxins on a daily basis from breathing and eating. Infrared saunas help eliminate some of these toxins. Body cells laden with toxins do not acclimate to heat as well as healthy cells, so the usage of an infrared sauna facilitates the eradication of the toxic cells.

    3 – Replenish
    Replenish your body with water and fruit after infrared sauna usage. Your body loses some minerals during the sauna process, and mineral water and fruit help recharge the body. Also, it is good to add some sea salt to your diet due to the loss of salt through sweating.

    4 – All Things in Moderation
    Using an infrared sauna regularly can benefit one’s health, but too much of a good thing is possible. It is encouraged not to exceed sauna usage for more than 30 minutes at a time. Though the process is very beneficial, excessive use can have a damaging effect. In addition, it is best to check with your general physician before engaging in regular use of an infrared sauna. It is also best to limit sauna use if pregnant, ill, injured, or fasting.
