A Health Mate infrared sauna gives effective, safe, natural pain relief from arthritis The therapeutic infrared heat gives greater relief from joint and muscle pain by penetrating more deeply into the body than other types of heat therapy, it reduces inflammation, helping to fight auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
The amazing health and wellness benefits of infrared saunas are widely recognised around the world. But until now, they have been virtually unheard of in the UK. Health Mate is changing that. And changing the future for the millions of people with arthritis in the UK.
Leading toxicology expert Dr Sherry A Rogers describes infrared therapy as “the closest we can probably get to the fountain of youth”. More than forty years of research has shown that infrared therapy can provide natural and effective health, wellness and sports benefits. These include relief from joint and muscle pain, reduced inflammation and helping to fight autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Infrared therapy is widely used in the United States, Canada and continental Europe by health professionals, leading sportsmen and women and therapists to alleviate a wide range of conditions, assist recovery and boost wellness.
Infrared saunas use dry heat and operate at much lower temperatures than conventional saunas, making them comfortable and relaxing. Infrared cabins use far infrared light, which is generated and absorbed naturally and safely by most objects, including the human body. Far infrared has the ability to penetrate the skin and generate deep heat from within.
Kate Askey has osteo-arthritis in her spine after an accident 10 years ago. Only 45 years old, Kate works full time in a design agency to support her two children, aged 11 and 9. But her condition severely restricts her mobility, her energy and her lifestyle.
“When it’s bad, the pain radiates down my leg, making my foot numb and causing me to fall over. Before I discovered Health-Mate UK, I was in constant pain, with referred pain in my neck and shoulders from walking with a stick. I just about made it through each working day before crawling into bed, and spent the weekends recovering. My Health-Mate UK cabin has condensed the pain to the site of my injury, boosting my energy and quality of life. I feel pretty good for most of the working week and am able to enjoy my evenings and weekends again. Everyone has commented that I am more mobile and lively and I no longer ration my precious walking minutes. Psychologically it’s also hugely helpful to know I can now manage my condition.”
