At the core of it infrared therapy helps you to regain your health and well-being through the use of in this case an infrared sauna. The objective of using an infrared sauna is for you to sweat.

Not really an art, but you get the point. Sweat your ringer out and your on your way. And this is usually done via some sort of solid exercise.

Well that’s great if you are can run or do some sort of high intensity exercise. But what if your injured or unable to exercise and your restricted? Is there another effective way to sweat. Absolutely there is, and you guessed it. With your very own infrared sauna.


There’s something about the feeling of sweating. Well for me anyway. It can make you feel a lot better about yourself. Even though you have usually busted your guts out, you still feel good.Think about it. After some sort of exercise, you often feel a little invigorated. This type of sweating is a little different but it has the same effect on your body.


One great and beneficial point about using an infrared sauna is the ability to help your body release unwanted toxins from your system. Toxins like heavy metals, plus everyday environment chemicals that find their way into your body. Most toxins that find their way into our system are a result of our bad eating habits, usually some sort of processed food.


The health benefits from infrared therapy don’t stop there. With your own infrared sauna on hand, you can also lose weight, use it for relaxation purposes, relieve unwanted joint and muscle pain, help to increase your blood circulation and to help purify your skin, and the list goes on.


If your suffering from any of those health issues, I highly encourage you to look into infrared therapy a little more. You might be surprised at how cost effective having your own infrared sauna could be. It beats paying for it on an ongoing basis, and a lot cheaper as well.


So in saying that let’s take a look at the 6 health benefits associated with infrared therapy when using an infrared sauna. I say 6 for the purpose of this article, but as you’ll learn more over time, you’ll see there’s far more than that. These are the main benefits that you’ll find pop up all the time, but before I continue the benefits expand a lot more than you might think. What about the mental benefits, depression, stress, the ever growing demands of the modern world we live in. These are the hidden 2nd tier benefits. Benefits I will cover in later topics.


Ok below as I’ve said are some of the main health benefits of infrared therapy, anyone asks what does infrared therapy do? You can point them in this direction. They are a direct result on what infrared therapy can do to heal the body.


1 Detoxification


We all have the ability to sweat, unless something unfortunate has happened to you. And we hope that is not the case with you. Sweating is one of the best and most natural ways to eliminate toxins from your body, making this a vital part of the detoxification process.

And with all the unwanted chemical in a day to day lives that somehow find themselves into our body, well we do know, don’t we. The need to detox on a regular basis is nearly a must now days. We all need a little re-energizing. Not detoxing on a regular basis can actually make us very susceptible to illnesses. A buildup of toxins in our body, breaks down our natural barrier that keeps us from getting sick. That’s why it’s vital we detox.

2 Relaxation Or Mental Detox

  The ability to relax in this hectic life most of us live in is an absolute must. Having the option to use a infrared sauna on a regular basis helps to promote relaxation by balancing your body’s cortisol levels, your body’s main stress hormone. The heat that is generated by the infrared sauna will also allow and help your muscles to relax. This will help to relieve the tension throughout your body, helping you to de-stress and relax. Relaxing is something a lot of us just don’t do these days and something we should pay more attention to. We often think we must go go go, and more often than not we eventually get burned out and wonder why. Relaxation is a form of meditation, which you can do very well in your own infrared sauna. Especially the bigger ones, as you are shut off from the world. Which is a great thing.     [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row custom_padding=”27px|0px|5px|0px|false|false” _builder_version=”3.13.1″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.13.1″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.13.1″]

3 Pain Relief

But If your someone who suffers from some sort of joint or muscle pain or arthritis, using an infrared sauna can help with the recovery process by relieving inflammation by increasing circulation throughout your body, as well as helping you to relax the affected areas. This would work well if you on the older side or you have had a sport injury. An infrared sauna will spread up the healing process. Although I’ve seen a lot of younger people suffering from arthritis, and my sister is one of them, She’s been very unlucky to have had it since she was a teenager.

4 Weight Loss

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row custom_padding=”1px|0px|27px|0px|false|false” _builder_version=”3.13.1″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.13.1″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.13.1″]When it come to losing weight, this it’s something most of us are trying to achieve, we are all looking for some sort of magical solution. Now this is not some magical solution, but it is a solution, and can work for you very well, on an ongoing basis. The way it works is by the heat that’s generated by the infrared sauna. The process works by increase your core temperature. Then you have flow on effects from this as well. But the process leads to an increase of your heart rate. That’s what the heat does.The same way you increase your heart rate when exercising. [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.13.1″][et_pb_column type=”2_5″ _builder_version=”3.13.1″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.13.1″][/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src=”https://infraredliving.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/what-does-infrared-therapy-do-2.jpg” _builder_version=”3.13.1″][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”3_5″ _builder_version=”3.13.1″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.13.1″]Here’s the thing. When your body heats up like it does when you exercise. The bodies natural reaction is to try and cool itself down. And it does this through sweating. So basically your body works harder than it normally does to cool itself down and in the process your body will basically burn more calories. I read an article. I cannot remember where. That stated that a 30 minute session in a infrared sauna had the ability to burn around 300 calories. Now please be mindful that this is just a figure and not an actual fact. It will differ for everyone.

5 Improved Circulation.

  Improving your bodies circulation will increase once your core body temperature increases by the heat that is generated. The best way to increase your circulation is by regular infrared sauna sessions. By doing this you will not only increase your circulation, but you will also help to stimulate your blood flow, help to improve your muscle recovery as well as help to decrease inflammation.  

6. Skin Purification.

  Skin purification will be the result of everything else working. This is one of those overflow benefits. This will be the results of your persistent work using the infrared sauna, and no doubt will be something that will be noticed by family and your friends. Looking after your skin has the ability to make you look a lot younger and vibrant looking. And another so called flow on effect of this will be how happy you’ll feel. If you can get yourself an infrared sauna for your home and use in on an ongoing basis you’ll have a better chance to eliminating the toxins from your body, allowing for cleaner and rejuvenated looking skin. Something, as I’ve said will make you feel so much better.

The Different Infrared Levels A Portable Infrared Sauna Has.

  I’ll just touch on the different level of the infrared sauna treatment can have. Just to give you a better understanding on how they work. I do cover this elsewhere but It can never hurt to say it here. Well, there are three heat levels of the infrared sauna. They are Near, middle and far. These 3 levels describe the different strength and size of each infrared wavelength.
  • The near levels are said to be the best for healing a wound/injury as well as increasing your immune function levels and helping to purify your skin
  • The middle levels are great for better circulation and the recovery of muscle relaxation.
  • The far infrared levels are the ones that get right into the body and are best for the detoxification process, as they are the wavelengths that penetrate the skin the deepest. In saying that the far is also good for joint inflammation issues.

If that’s the route you go down, Id recommend easing yourself into the process for at least the first week or so. Just until you get used the process. Even a 5 minute session for the first few sessions to see how you go, then work your way up to a longer session. The last thing you would want to do is exhaust yourself on the first session.
