Infrared detox sauna
What is infrared detox sauna?
Unlike damaging UV rays, infrared light is the part of the sun’s invisible light spectrum that our bodies use to heal and repair. The Infrared Detox Sauna at Infrafit, converts this light into heat for your skin to soak up in our dry sauna.
Infrafit Detox Infrared Sauna is an alternative health source in a world where toxins and pollutions are adding up daily in your system.
Basically, if you have health issues, if you experience aches and pains from your daily life or as the result of an illness or injury, if your skin is rough, dry, broken out, splotchy, if you’re recovering from cancer, if you struggle with your weight and energy levels or if you are just on the path of striving to have an excellent health, this is one of the best tools to have in your health & detox arsenal.
How does infrared detox sauna work?
The heat in an infrared sauna penetrates your body tissues to a depth of about 3.80cm inducing a natural fever situation without an illness. This induced fever causes your body to sweat and remove toxins that have built up in your body due to environmental, medicinal, or stress related situations. During this process, your heart rate speeds to rates similar to those of gentle exercise, thus helping your body to increase circulation and function more efficiently.
Some of the benefits that result with this removal of toxins from our bodies include: softer and clearer skin tone; reduced muscle and joint tenderness and soreness; faster healing of cuts, bruises, and acne; increased weight loss with a proper nutritional programme; the ability to have a deeper, more relaxing sleep; and, reduced stress.
The excess waste releases from the human body in two ways – either through urination or through perspiration. The more you perspire – or sweat – the more toxins release from your body.
The body sweats more at Infrared temperatures, which are 60-80% lower than conventional saunas. Your core temperature is raised slowly and a deep, purifying sweat is induced – all while listening music or reading your favorite magazine in your private sauna.
Which are the benefits of using the infrared detox sauna?
Detox sauna reduces stress
Taking a short time away from the cares of the world in an infrared sauna can help reduce your daily stress. This time allows your body to begin to function properly and your mind to relax from the stress and strains of your daily life. It provides a quiet, reflective time for you
Generates weight loss
Removing harmful substances through perspiration, increasing your heart rate, which results in greater circulation, all help your body strive to reach its highest potential. You can enhance your weight loss efforts through healthy living, exercise, and removal of toxins. Research demonstrates that the resultant perspiration from an infrared sauna session contains 90% toxins, and not just water loss.
Improves your skin tone, texture and appearance
Increased circulation and regular removal of toxins gives your skin a richer, creamier, softer, and smoother tone and texture. Increased heating and perspiration through better circulation pulls the toxins from the body through the skin. Heat enlarges the skin pores allowing for easily removal of dirt and sweat. Body cells heal faster and function better. Washing away the resultant perspiration leaves the skin clean and rejuvenated
Reduces & improves acne
After the benefits of toxin removal, increased circulation, and better skin tone, acne will improve or even be eliminated for good. The gentle heating of your skin with an infrared sauna opens your pores and helps your skin release dirt and grime.
Speeds healing of cuts and bruises
Cuts and bruises heal quicker after dead skin cells are sloughed off and toxins removed from your body. Increased circulation helps remove the trapped blood left behind in bruised areas.
Relaxes aching muscles
The warmth of the sauna eases tense aching muscles and the pain of arthritis, bursitis, or injury. This enhanced relaxation and wellbeing lasts well past the sauna use and helps you have a deeper, more restful sleep.
Enhances heart function
Infrared saunas are becoming one of the most efficient ways to help heart patients improve their heart function after a serious heart attack. The gentle heating and consequent heart rate increase allows these patients to begin healing quicker. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported in their August 1981 issue: “Regular use of an infrared sauna may impart a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise” (quoted in Flickstein,2000).
Increases and improves your circulation
When you heat your body, your heart rate increases. This slightly increased heart rate induced by the heating of your tissues increases blood flow throughout the body improving your overall circulation. Improved circulation leads to a myriad of benefits for your body that may include fewer aches and pains, fewer muscle cramps, better assimilation of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from the foods you eat, and an overall feeling of well being
