How does infrared sauna work?
Instead of heating the air around you like a normal sauna, infrared rays directly heat your body tissue below the skins surface, allowing you to sweat out toxins (among other benefits) instead of indirectly heating your body like a normal sauna. Just in case that made no sense to you, the picture above illustrates the process…

1. Weight Loss
Studies have shown that sitting in an infrared sauna for 30 minutes can burn upwards of 600 calories. When you use an infrared sauna, your core body temperate body temperature causes an increase in your heart rate, metabolic rate and cardiac output, allowing you to burn calories while you sit back and relax.
Removing toxins from your body is a great way to avoid disease, prevent illness, and generally improve your overall feeling of health and vitality. Since infrared saunas heat your body from the core, they allow you to sweat out up to 7 times more toxins than traditional saunas.
Studies have shown that infrared heat therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol, allowing you to relieve that day-to-day stress, and relax.
4. Pain Relief
Infrared heat works by deeply penetrating joints, muscle and tissues, which increases circulation and speeds oxygen flow. Many doctors recommend infrared therapy to athletes for sports injury relief, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain syndromes.
5. Lower Blood Pressure
Infrared sauna therapy is a safe and effective way to improve your heart functions, and can be especially beneficial for patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.
6. Improved Circulation
Heating your muscles with infrared rays causes a similar increase in blood flow to exercise. Never before has getting your blood going been so relaxing!
7. Skin Purification
Studies on infrared light therapy have shown improvements in skin complexion, tone, texture, elasticity and overall appearance. Less toxins in the skin = healthier skin.
