What Far Infrared Sauna is and How It Can Help You

 A traditional sauna uses steam or heat to raise the core body temperature. This causes an individual to sweat, increase their heart rate, and improve their blood circulation inside the blood vessels in an attempt to cool down. It mimics physical exercises and provides almost the same set of benefits.

But in contrast to a regular sauna that utilizes different heating devices to raise the room temperature, infrared (IR) sauna uses infrared heat to increase the body’s temperature without affecting the room’s temperature. 

Like a conventional sauna, IR saunas also offer tons of health benefits for the body which is why it’s becoming a health trend recently. Some patients even find infrared therapy more comfortable than the traditional sauna because it operates at a lower temperature.

Since infrared heat therapy helps with increasing heart rate, raising the body’s core temperature, and vigorous sweating, the effects of this treatment on different chronic health problems have been studied by many researchers and doctors.

6 Health Benefits of IR Sauna

  1. Weight Loss – People who regularly use infrared light sauna therapy may experience fat loss because it mimics the effects of regular exercise. However, this treatment shouldn’t be an alternative to other fat reduction treatments. Patients are still encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle or undergo body contouring procedures to reshape their bodies if they want to.
  2. Detoxification – Humans naturally detox or flush toxins out of the body even without the help of regular sauna treatments. But those who are exposed to harmful substances, have inflammation or impaired immune systems do not detox properly and may experience improvements after a few IR sauna treatments.  Dr. Watkins and her medical team at aNu Aesthetics and Optimal Wellness use IR Sauna Therapy as part of their detoxification protocols for functional and wellness medicine. 
  3. Post-Exercise Recovery – Infrared heaters also help the recovery of sore muscles after an athlete’s workout. The light humidity and mild temperature of an IR sauna provide a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere for athletes and clients with an active lifestyle.
  4. Pain Relief – The infrared rays and heat from this type of treatment are also helpful for joint pain and chronic pain management. Patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis reported decreased stiffness and pain after completing eight IR sauna therapy sessions in four weeks. The treatment also didn’t have any negative effects on their condition.
  5. Skin Health – Some clients also love undergoing IR sauna therapies because it leaves their skin glowing. The infrared rays are also used in other treatments for promoting healing and stimulating the body’s production of collagen.
  6. Cardiovascular Benefits – Since IR therapies help improve blood flow, many patients with cardiovascular conditions may experience lower blood pressure and improved symptoms after regular IR treatments. Patients also reported short-term improvement in their cardiovascular functions thanks to the IR sauna.  However, please be sure to consult with your physician first if you have any medical conditions.

How to Use an Infrared Sauna

Some people get their IR sauna therapies in a doctor’s office or health club, while others purchase an infrared sauna blanket and do it at home instead. But like other treatments and health products, there isn’t a universal way to use an infrared sauna. It all depends on the instructions provided by the doctor or manufacturer, but here are a few tips to help you get started:

  • Drink lots of water – Keep yourself well-hydrated before entering the sauna. Drink a glass of water right before the treatment to avoid dehydration while inside the sauna. Some patients even bring water inside.
  • Choose the right temperature – Beginners usually start at a low temperature (100 degrees Fahrenheit) and slowly build it up with every session until they can tolerate the highest temperature (about 150 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Set a specific time – Beginners are advised to stay inside the sauna for around 10 to 15 minutes while more experienced users stay inside for about 20 to 30 minutes. Don’t stay too long inside the sauna to avoid dehydration.
  • Decide on clothing – Some people wear bathing suits inside the sauna while others prefer staying naked. Your dress choice is entirely up to you.
  • Prepare a few activities – Patients are advised to relax, meditate, or keep themselves busy by reading, chatting, or listening to music. Just don’t fall asleep while inside the sauna.
  • After the therapy – Clients should relax and let their bodies cool down right after stepping out of the sauna. Drink more water and take a few minutes to rest before bathing.
