8 Benefits of Infrared Heat Therapy

Do you want to relax and get healthier? An infrared sauna is a great way to do both.
Using infrared heat therapy, infrared saunas give you a safe and effective means of relieving stress, detoxifying your body, boosting your immune system, and even getting rid of cellulite. Here are 8 benefits of infrared heat therapy that everyone should know
about.

Decrease in Chronic Pain

An infrared sauna increases blood flow, which helps to boost energy levels and may also help in decreasing chronic pain. This particular type of heat therapy is particularly beneficial for those with fibromyalgia or who are recovering from an injury as it has been
shown to decrease muscle spasms and pain associated with low back pain, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Pain Relief for Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and Other Medical Conditions

In addition to its relaxing effect, infrared heat therapy is effective in relieving pain and stiffness from arthritis, fibromyalgia and injuries. These conditions often cause aching joints, muscles or other parts of your body. By increasing blood flow to painful areas,
heat therapy can ease your discomfort and help relieve pain.

Promotes Weight Loss

Weight loss is one of the best benefits of infrared heat therapy, and is easily explained by the fact that fat cells are more sensitive to infrared radiation than other types of cells. In addition, body fat becomes softer and more easily metabolized when exposed to
infrared radiation. This means there's a greater chance your dieting efforts will lead to actual weight loss instead of just water weight loss.

Improves Skin Appearance

Both short-term and long-term use can help improve skin appearance by stimulating blood flow and removing toxins. Infrared heat therapy uses a mild to moderate, dry heat that penetrates deeply into muscle tissue, loosening stiff or sore muscles and improving

flexibility. Because infrared light penetrates down to your deepest tissues, it has a therapeutic benefit for relief from chronic pain or discomfort related to tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis, fibromyalgia or any other type of joint pain or arthritis.

Fights Infections

Studies have shown that infrared heat therapy helps fight viral infections. In a 2010 study, researchers found that infrared heat therapy reduced pain and inflammation in patients suffering from herpes simplex virus-2 (genital herpes). Since cold sores are caused by a viral infection, infrared saunas can help reduce symptoms and get rid of outbreaks faster. The U.S. Army even uses IR heat treatments to help treat its soldiers who suffer from bacterial infections while on duty in Iraq and Afghanistan!.

Lowers Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Levels

People who use infrared heat have reported a reduction in both blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A Finnish study showed that people using a sauna two to three times per week experienced a 3% drop in total cholesterol and a 5% drop in LDL, or bad
cholesterol.

Lessens Stress and Anxiety Symptoms

An infrared sauna will help reduce stress and anxiety by producing endorphins. The high-heat environment and infrared rays produce a deep sense of relaxation that is similar to floating in water. Combined with deep breathing, you can achieve a meditative state that will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed after your sauna session.

Promotes Relaxation & Deep Sleep

Negative ions, which are emitted by infrared saunas, have an extremely calming effect. Many individuals claim that regular use of infrared heat therapy helps promote relaxation and deeper sleep. In fact, people who regularly use an infrared sauna often report better sleep patterns than those who don’t! Furthermore, heat treatments also help keep you relaxed—in part because it takes longer to cool down your body when in a sauna or steam room. This can be especially useful if you suffer from chronic stress or anxiety. It’s important to note that these effects aren’t solely due to temperature
changes: negative ions are known for their ability to relax muscles and increase blood flow throughout your body. These factors together create a potent mix for promoting total-body relaxation and deep sleep.
