What is the best thing that will make you feel relaxed and refreshed?
How about a 20-minute sauna session?
Not only will you feel rested and relaxed, the heat will relieve any pain in your muscles, improving your overall health.
However, you will have to tolerate the high temperatures in a traditional sauna. If you don’t want to do that your best option is an infrared sauna.
Unlike traditional saunas, infrared saunas won’t heat up the air around you.
The infrared panels in this sauna warm up your body directly, by using electromagnetic radiation.
In fact, the temperature at which an infrared sauna operates is much lower than that of a traditional sauna. So, the environment is much more tolerable and so you can stay for longer.
Here are a few benefits of using a full spectrum infrared sauna:
By warming up the body directly, infrared sauna helps you feel more relaxed and rested. As a result, you will get better sleep and feel more energetic the next day.
80 percent of the heat generated by an infrared sauna is absorbed by your body. Only 20 percent goes to the air. As a result, even at a lower temperature your body will produce more intense sweat. This removes all toxins leaving your body detoxified.
Spending time in an infrared sauna is probably the best way to lose weight. You don’t have to do anything other than feel relaxed and rested.
Relief from Sore Muscles And Joint Pain
There is no better therapy than heat to get relief from joint pain and sore muscles. An infrared sauna helps you experience this without any hassles.
Clear and Tighter Skin
The best part of spending time in an infrared sauna is that you can enjoy clearer and tighter skin. It is one of the most natural ways of getting rid of those wrinkles and fine lines so that you can look younger.
Any blockages in your body can be easily cleared by the heat that your body receives during the infrared sauna session. This not only improves your blood circulation; it also helps in bringing your blood pressure under control. It can be very beneficial in treating a number of ailments, thus making you feel more healthy and fit.
Many sauna manufacturers make lots of claims about infrared saunas. Since not all of these might actually be true, it is always better to read through a few reviews before trying one. You may experience some amount of overheating and dehydration if you are taking any medications. Also, it is better to avoid this if you are pregnant or are suffering from heart disease.
You may or may not experience all the benefits that you expect to get from a sweat session at an infrared sauna. Nevertheless, it can still help you relax, relieve your stiff and sore muscles, and make you feel good. It is worth a try even if it means just spending that much needed “Me” time.
