The health benefits of infra-red have are immeasurable after any period of activity, a spell in an infra-red sauna can relieve tired muscles, chase away joint aches and pains, relieve stress and help to detoxify the body. As the infra-red heat caresses and relaxes your muscles, it helps to speed up your metabolism and increases blood circulation, making you feel incredibly relaxed and renewing your passion for life
Infra-red saunas differ from traditional saunas by operating at a more comfortable temperature, making them much more enjoyable but also more suitable for those who suffer from Asthma or who are unable to tolerate high temperatures or steam. Unlike Finnish saunas, the infra-red rays heat the body, not the air, and can penetrate the upper layers of the skin to eliminate toxins, making it an incredibly effective treatment for cellulite. What’s more, as the infra-red promotes deep cleansing and can flush away multiple toxins from the body, and as the average person can expect to burn the equivalent of 800 calories in a single session, it’s one of the most effective methods of achieving a general detox of the body.
Taking an infra-red sauna is also a great way of warming up before any massage therapy, as it opens the pores, relaxes the muscles and frees the mind from every day stress. Basically, you’ll feel good during your sauna but, more importantly, you’ll feel even better after it!
