Are you interested in detoxification, relaxation, and increased circulation? Have you been looking for a way to burn calories without adding pressure to your aching joints and muscles? If so, infrared sauna therapy could be the missing link to your optimal health.
As you may already know, sweating is a great way to burn calories and remove unwanted toxins from your body, but how do you sweat when you are injured or unable to exercise? The infrared sauna can be an option. The infrared saunas help your body to release a number of toxins, including heavy metals such as mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals.
6 benefits of infrared sauna therapy
Infrared saunas can also help you reach your ideal weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin.
1. Detox
Sweating is one of the body's most natural ways to eliminate toxins, which is why it is a crucial part of detoxification. Compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate approximately 7 times more toxins.
2. Relaxation
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body's level of cortisol, your body's main stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help relax the muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.
3. Pain relief
If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can alleviate this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing muscles.
4. Weight loss
The heat generated by the infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to rise, which can also lead to an increase in heart rate - the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising.
When your body has to work harder to lower its core temperature or maintain a heart rate, your body will burn more calories, leading to weight loss.
An article titled, "Effect of Sweating," in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn approximately 600 calories.
5. Improved circulation
As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Constant infrared sauna sessions, especially at the mid-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.
6. Purification of the skin
Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by removing toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, smoother, and healthier skin.
Infrared Levels
Infrared sauna treatments can be available at different levels: near, medium and far.
These different levels represent the different sizes in infrared wavelengths and refer to the intensity of the treatment. Most people find that:
• Near-infrared levels are best for wound healing and increased immune function.
• Medium levels are ideal for increasing circulation and promoting muscle relaxation.
• The far levels are primarily used for detoxification purposes.
If you are new to infrared saunas, it is advisable to start with 4-minute sessions at 35 to 55 degrees Celsius (100-130 degrees Fahrenheit) and slowly work your way up to 15-30 minute sessions.
If an infrared sauna is not available, but you have access to a regular sauna, you can still achieve some degree of detoxification with 10-20 minute sessions at 87 to 93 degrees Celsius (190-200 degrees Fahrenheit).

Obesity is not simply the accumulation of excess body fat. Obesity is a chronic (long-term) disease with serious complications that is very difficult to treat. As such, it requires long-term treatment to lose weight and keep it off. There is no overnight solution. Effective, permanent weight loss takes some time.
