Infrared Sauna Therapy | Refresh Wellness

Infrared sauna therapy transforms your body from the skin to areas deep inside your body. Infrared therapy can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins, compared to only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna and at a much more comfortable temperature. Because the core body temperature is raised, infrared saunas can assist the body in killing infection, bacteria, yeast, parasites and viruses. It is one of the most effective (and relaxing) forms of detoxification available.

Some of the many benefits include:

Detoxification

Sweating is one of the body’s most natural and effective ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas that heat the air around you, infrared saunas penetrate several inches into the body which allows you to eliminate about seven times more toxins, including environmental toxins and heavy metals like mercury and lead.

Pain Relief

If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared sauna therapy can relieve inflammation by releasing tension, increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles. We have heard many success stories where the use of sauna therapy has been the most beneficial modality used for pain relief.

Weight Loss

The heat generated by an infrared sauna will raise your core temperature, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature and keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. One session can burn up to 600 calories.

Improved Circulation

As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.

Skin Purification

Infrared sauna therapy can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.

Relaxation

Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by balancing your body’s level of cortisol, the primary stress hormone. Your body is taken out of sympathetic nervous response (fight/flight/freeze mode), and put into a parasympathetic state (rest/digest/and restore mode) where true healing can take place.

Some studies have shown benefits of infrared sauna therapy for people with:

  • cardiovascular disease
  • diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • congestive heart failure
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • fibromyalgia
  • chronic fatigue
  • poor digestion
  • depression, anxiety and anger
  • chronic muscle and joint pains
  • chronic infection like Lyme Disease
  • hormonal imbalances

Sessions start at 30 minutes and gradually increase to 40 minutes. Recommended use is 3-4 times per week if actively trying to detox, address a chronic issue, or fighting off an illness, otherwise 1-2 times a week for maintenance and preventative care.
