Infrared sauna benefits have been widely documented. Infrared technology is definitely not new. Infrared treatments have been applied in the medical world since 1967.
Studies have shown that infrared sauna benefits can help with various medical conditions: rheumatism and arthritis, muscle and joint pains, headaches and stress. Even diabetics and people with chronic disorders such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome have declared how the infrared sauna benefits of a Health Mate® infrared sauna have helped them to feel better.
If nothing else, a session in your Health Mate® infrared sauna is simply relaxing and beneficial. Take some time to care for yourself and clear your mind, with a little music and/or a good book. The heat relaxes your muscles, making them more flexible and easing the tension in your neck and shoulders. This relaxation relieves muscle and joint pains.
Infrared Sauna Benefits – Health Mate®
The infrared sauna benefits become very clear during a session in a Health Mate® infrared cabin. Your body will warm up gradually. You start to sweat because your body will try to reduce the heat. During this process you will lose fluids and toxins. But that is not the only thing that happens. While trying to cool itself down, the body has to use up energy to do so. This means you burn calories which is another infrared sauna benefit.
While you are relaxing and sitting comfortably in your Health Mate® sauna, your body is hard at work. You can feel it doing so as your heart rate rises slightly and your blood flow increases just like if you were doing physical exercise. You feel good, even after just one session. Tensions release and your muscles become supple again. Even your skin feels fresh and revived after just half an hour.
What does infrared light do to generate all these infrared sauna benefits? Infrared rays penetrate into your body and increase your body temperature. Due to warmth and the energy that your body absorbs, your immune system will be stimulated. This explains why people who regularly use their sauna seem to have colds less frequently.
But a Health Mate® infrared sauna has much more to offer. Because the infrared warmth penetrates the body, the blood flow and heart rate will get stimulated which has a positive effect on a multitude of ailments. The deep warmth is good news for your muscles and the general effect and benefits can be compared with those of a 30 minute workout.
