What are infrared saunas?
Infrared saunas use infrared wavelengths to penetrate deep within the tissue, muscle and bones. Unlike traditional saunas that use heated rocks to increase the temperature of the air around you making it difficult to breathe, an infrared sauna uses invisible infrared wavelengths that mimic the way the sun produces heat to heat your core - making it a much more comfortable sauna experience. By penetrating deep into your body, these wavelengths encourage your core temperature to slowly rise allowing your body to gently remove the build up of unwanted toxins in your system.
Why should I use infrared saunas?
Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body because they are easily absorbed, stimulating the lymphatic, immune and cardiovascular systems. Infrared saunas may be beneficial for a range of health conditions including:
Improve skin tone
Support with skin conditions such as acne, eczema and dermatitis
Muscle fatigue and recovery
Stress relief and mental health (including seasonal depression)
