10 Benefits of Infrared Sauna

What is Infrared Therapy?

Our saunas use infrared light to treat pain and inflammation. Infrared light is 100% safe and not near as energetic as ultraviolet light, which can damage skin. While in the sauna, the infrared light targets the specific area of pain. This aids in cell repair of the area affected. So, it doesn’t just suck the pain and inflammation out, but it stops the cause as well. 

In case you didn’t know already, sweating is an excellent way to dispose of toxin build-up. Infrared treatment being a natural treatment, aids our guests who are struggling with inflammation, recovering from an injury or sickness, experiencing muscle soreness, and SO much more.

How does Infrared Sauna Work?

Infrared is a very low-energy form of electromagnetic radiation, which allows it to penetrate through the skin’s deepest layers without harming it. This makes our saunas safe, non-invasive, non-radioactive, and painless, and necessary for all of our iCRYO locations.  When exposed, your body experiences radiant heat, which goes down to 1 ½ inches inside your skin. The wavelength of infrared impacts the chemical bonds between molecules our cells. Inside our sauna, this provides countless benefits.
 

Ten Benefits of Infrared Sauna


1. Detoxification

Toxins get deep into our fat cells and tissue. This can cause us to feel unwell or sluggish and could even lead up to disease. Which is why detoxification is so important! Using infrared light, our saunas are able to go deep into the body allowing it to release these toxins. Using our sauna regularly for detox will provide an intense, productive sweat where toxins reside at the cellular level.

4. Weight Loss

Penetrating the body with heat benefits our guests in numerous ways, one of the most popular being weight loss. When the body’s core temperature rises, it starts to burn more calories so it can cool itself down. The process is called “thermogenesis” and it will help you continue to burn calories throughout the day. The use of our infrared saunas increases heart, and metabolic rate, encouraging your body to burn more calories, resulting in weight loss!

5. Skin Improvement

Just a few minutes after sweating, Infrared Therapy allows dirt and other impurities to flush out of our pores. The increase of blood circulation can help with certain chronic skin disorders. Some guest will also experience reduced fine lines & wrinkles, increased elasticity, smoothness, firmness, and improved skin tone!
 


6. Joint Pain & Stiffness

Infrared heat is able to temporarily ease joint pain and stiffness. Safe infrared rays also help increase flexibility by loosening up the connective tissues around your joints. This can help improve movement and reduce pain.  Increased thermal energy to the joints promotes a temporary increase in blood flow.  Increased thermal energy reduces stiffness and increases range of motion, allowing our guests to step out of the sauna loose and temporarily free of pain.
