Infrared Sauna Therapy

Infrared Sauna Therapy heat is actually a particular kind of light. It’s one of the areas of the electromagnetic spectrum invisible to the naked eye. Completely harmless, you might feel far infrared heat from sources such as fires, radiators, and the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that cause sunburns).

Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light, which runs from shorter wave infrared to medium and long wave infrared. As many health studies have shown, far infrared heat is the most beneficial in an infrared sauna, penetrating deeper into the skin, increasing circulation, and helping to detoxify the body of harmful toxins.

Infrared saunas differ from traditional saunas because they operate at a temperature of 30-60°C, compared to a traditional sauna that operates at 85-110°C. This allows you to be able to breathe comfortably and enjoy the benefits for extended periods of time. Because the infrared rays safely and comfortably penetrate the skin up to 6cm deep, even your organs and deep tissues are stimulated. This induces sweating 2-3 times as much as a conventional sauna.

The Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy Include:

  • Increased metabolism & weight loss – Infrared Sauna Therapy can burn hundreds of calories by increasing your metabolism and core temperature. Far infrared heat also breaks down cellulite, trapped water, fat and wastes as part of the detoxification process.

  • A boosted immune system – During a session, the infrared sauna will raise your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. Fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response. The intense sweating during Infrared Sauna Therapy will enhance your immune system and increase your overall health and resistance to disease.

  • Detoxification of the body – Infrared Sauna Therapy is excellent for detoxifying the body. The infrared heat stimulates sweating, while penetrating deeply and releasing toxins that can then be eliminated by the body through the sweat.

  • Increased blood flow – Using an infrared sauna can expand capillaries in the body, which stimulates increased blood flow, regeneration, circulation, and oxygenation.

  • Elimination of bacteria & fungi – Infrared Sauna Therapy also promotes the killing and removal of many pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

  • Healing of cuts, bruises, & scars – Daily Infrared Sauna Therapy can also promote rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect of the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury). Furthermore, it increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all during tissue repair.

  • Relaxation of muscles – Infrared heat relieves muscle tension and helps your body to make the most of its intended healing abilities. Infrared Sauna Therapy also reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated in the sauna.

  • Increased cardiovascular & heart rates – As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, providing the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate increase during Infrared Sauna Therapy, while diastolic blood pressure drops, thus boosting overall cardiovascular fitness.

  • Healthy arteries – Deposits of fat, calcium, fibrin, and cellular debris can clog arteries and lessen the ability to expand and contract while slowing blood circulation. Infrared Sauna Therapy can potentially help to clean arteries by loosening these toxins and increasing blood flow throughout the body.

  • Improved skin conditions – Infrared Sauna Therapy has been shown to relieve acne, psoriasis, burns, eczema, and also removes roughness and decreases scarring. Excessive sweating is beneficial to the skin, and helps improve the clarity, balance, and structure of the skin tissues.

  • Relief from pain – Infrared Sauna Therapy has been effective in providing pain relief to those suffering from back pain, sprains, strains, bursitis, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, and many other muscular-skeletal ailments.

  • Relief from stress – Infrared Sauna Therapy has been shown to promote a re-balancing of the body’s hormones through its effect on the autonomic nervous system, thereby reducing the negative physical impact of stress on the body.

Infrared Sauna Therapy offered at Kawartha Natural Health Clinic is one of the major keys to unlocking your long-term health frustrations in order to start your journey towards renewed health and vitality.
