Infrared Sauna - The power of healing light
What is Infrared Sauna?
One of the top health benefits of using an infrared sauna regularly is to promote natural detoxification. We are exposed to toxins in our everyday life, and detoxification is the way in which our body naturally de-activates and eliminates these accumulated toxins. Promoting optimal detox pathways will help to reduce the impact this can have on our health.
Toxins are classified as any chemical that the body cannot use productively or cannot get rid of easily. These chemicals do our organs and bodily processes harm, disrupt the natural order of things and increase the rate at which ageing happens. Our skin is the largest organ and essentially our third kidney and sweat glands help our skin filter toxins out of the body, which in turn boosts our immune system.
How does Infrared Sauna work?
Infrared sauna therapy uses far-infrared light that is experienced by the body as radiant heat and causes the body to sweat at lower temperatures, while the light penetrates deeper—up to three inches— than conventional saunas. This aids with deep tissue healing and mobilising fat as many of the toxins we absorb are surrounded and trapped by fat. One of the ways we detox the body is through sweating. Sweating is one of the safest ways to detox the body regularly.
