Infrared saunas differ from regular saunas because the rays of an infrared sauna penetrate and heat the body first and the air secondarily. In a traditional sauna, coals are heated to increase the temperature of the air first, and then the temperature of the body will go up. Infrared sauna rays filter out harmful UV radiation. In an infrared sauna your body will only receive the infrared radiation that raises your body temperature. Let’s take a look at the top 3 sauna benefits:
- Blood Circulation. The high temperature your body reaches while inside an infrared sauna helps lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation. Increased circulation boosts your body’s immune system.
- Sweating. A high body temperature resulting from spending time in an infrared sauna will increase the amount you sweat. Your skin will excrete toxins from your system and better defend from infections. Saunas help cleanse your body; your skin will feel regenerated and glow. A high body temperature also causes your metabolism to speed up and can increase weight loss.
- Metal and Muscle Relaxation. After exercising or vigorous activity, spending time in an infrared sauna can help warm muscles and reduce soreness. Sitting back and relaxing in a sauna is good for your mental wellness too. A warm body temperature will relax your muscles and release endorphins to the brain, making you feel happy.
Infrared saunas come in all shapes and sizes and can seat a small or large amount of people. Pick a sauna that’s best for the number of people who will be using it and by deciding where it will be placed in your home. Aside from these top 3 sauna benefits for your health, saunas from PoolGear Plus come equipped with towel and magazine racks, CD Player with MP3 plug-in, backrests, color therapy light and an oxygen ionizer!
