What are the benefits of the Far Infrared Sauna?
The radiant heat, Far Infrared Saunas are the same saunas many doctors, physical therapists and professional athletes use to treat muscle injury and strains, as well as hospitals to warm newborn babies. Unlike the traditional saunas with their high air temperature, the infrared saunas warm the body muscles directly by penetrating the soft tissue. It does this by only warming the air to a comfortable level, allowing for fresh air ventilation so people never get that feeling of suffocation. Because people are able to use this type of sauna for a longer time, they are able to reap greater benefits than through the high temperature saunas.
An additional benefit is that the infrared sauna will raise the body temperature slightly, causing the body to react by raising the heart rate to a mild aerobic range. Thus, it increases the blood flow; opens the capillaries for greater blood flow to sluggish areas; opens the pores; and creates a deep sweat that flushes the toxins including heavy metals.
