Infrared Sauna Therapy
“Give me the power to create a fever, and I shall cure any disease.” – Hippocrates
Remember the last time you were sunbathing with sunscreen? Were you still hot? Of course you were because the sunscreen only stops the UV (Ultraviolet) light from hitting your skin. The far infrared heat (Far infrared light waves) penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Don’t confuse it, however, with ultraviolet light (UV), which causes sunburn and damage to your skin.
Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum. One of far infrared light’s characteristics is the ability to easily penetrate human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. You can be exposed to far infrared heat for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. Far infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, it is so safe it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
All humans send and receive Far infrared waves. The range of waves generated by the human body is 6 to 20 microns. The optimal micron output range is between 7 and 14 microns which is very close to the resonant frequency of a water molecule. This similarity makes sense since our bodies are almost 70% water. This range, sometimes referred to as “Vital Rays” appears to have special regenerative effects on the body. When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules (these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gases and other toxic materials to be released.
TRADITIONAL SAUNA VS. INFRARED SAUNA
Why do I need to use an infrared sauna when I can just use the sauna at the gym? There are many reasons that an infrared sauna dominates regular saunas, the main reason being that it is 7x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna. Unlike regular saunas infrared saunas also help assist with pain relief, weight loss, lowering blood pressure, skin rejuvenation, improved circulation and more!
BENEFITS OF FAR INFRARED THERAPY
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared sauna benefits the body by heating it directly causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna benefits include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Lower Blood Pressure
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows the infrared sauna benefits using an infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.
Anti-Aging & Skin Purification
The near infrared wavelength (sometimes referred to as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevent infection.
Near infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 900 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use—especially in the mid infrared range—can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
HELPS Kill cancer cells
Infrared treatment shrinks tumor volumes 86% in 30 days. Infrared saunas should be part of any cancer treatment protocol, as they can aid in tumor shrinkage. Tumor cells are weak cells and very intolerant of the heat stress induced by an infrared sauna. They also rid the body of the toxic body burdens contributing to cancer formation in the first place.
