At the start of the New Year, many people put their health as a priority. It’s a new beginning for many, and we at Wild Women Wellness always support decisions to better a person’s health. A very underrated form of wellness is the infrared sauna, which has proven benefits to help you relax, relieve pain, and lose weight- among many other perks! Listed below are the beneficial ways that infrared saunas can better your life:
First off, what is an infrared sauna?
Glad you asked. To start off, we must understand that sunlight is a combination of visible and invisible light. Infrared light is an invisible light, and is one of the healthiest forms of light that can infiltrate the deep layers of our skin. Infrared saunas use infrared wavelengths, at all different levels, to help dissolve toxins in your skin, vitalize your metabolism, and have your body feeling balanced.
One of the most beneficial aspects of the infrared sauna is the way it allows your body to relax. The infrared wavelengths affect your body’s primary stress hormone, cortisol, which helps to make you feel more balanced. The heat generated in the sauna works to relax your muscles and relieve tension where you hold stress in your body.
One of the more popular uses for infrared saunas is the ability to help with pain relief. As the heat from the infrared sauna increases, so does your core body temperature, which will then increase your body’s circulation. When your body’s blood flow is stimulated, it allows for inflammation to be relieved and for muscle aches or joint pain to decrease.
Another benefit that infrared saunas provide can be seen physically. Because you are sweating in the sauna, you’re eliminating toxins deep within your body, which can lead to many perks. One of them is purified skin; as you sweat out the toxins, you increase your circulation, which results in your skin becomes clearer and softer.
Finally, infrared saunas are known for their ability to aid in weight loss. Because your core temperature increases, so does your heart rate to try to keep your core temperature at a manageable degree. When your body has to work hard at maintaining your body temperature, your body will burn more calories, which results in weight loss. Burning calories while relaxing- sign us up!
