Infrared sauna therapy is a unique twist on the ever popular sauna treatment, and an infrared sauna is special in that it filters out the UV rays of sunlight, leaving only the infrared rays to reach your skin. By doing this, your internal temperature rises, which boosts your metabolism (to aid in weight loss) and detoxifies your body. Dr. Eric Lane has been using infrared sauna technology at Lean Healthy Life for many years now, and it’s a great option not only for weight loss but overall general health as well.
How Does an Infrared Sauna Work?
Infrared light can’t be seen by the naked eye, but it’s perceived in humans as heat, and most of the sun’s energy is within this band on the spectrum. Our cutting-edge infrared sauna technology utilizes this type of energy because it is capable of heating your body without heating the air surrounding you.
Everyone knows that sweating takes energy, and that’s the key to weight loss with an infrared sauna. As your body temperature begins to rise, you will start to sweat which will cause you to burn calories. A person in moderate physical condition can expect to sweat over a thousand grams in one sauna session—this translates into 10-15 kilometers worth of running!
Adverse side effects should not be a concern for you when using infrared sauna technology. Since infrared light is a natural part of the light spectrum it’s something we already come into contact with every day. Dr. Lane has years of experience when it comes to infrared sauna therapy, so you can be sure your sessions are safe when you choose to have them at Lean Healthy Life.
What Can Infrared Sauna Therapy Do for You?
When your body’s core internal temperature is raised during your infrared sauna session, your capillaries will begin to dilate. This is a vital process for encouraging increased blood circulation and the removal of toxins from the body. As your heart starts to more effectively pump oxygen rich blood into your veins, you’ll begin to feel relief in your joints and soft tissue as their waste byproducts are carried away and eliminated.
Infrared sauna therapy is more than just a great way to help rejuvenate your physical body—it can work wonders on your mind as well. In a study by Psychosomatic Medicine, researchers found that people suffering from depression who were exposed to infrared light experienced a reduction in their symptoms as well as an improvement in their ability to relax. Infrared sauna therapy is a truly holistic approach to healthy living.
