Some of the benefi ts of an infrared sauna include reducing disease causing toxins, pulling heavy metals from the body and relieving stress by opening the body’s pores. Doctors have recommended that people who experience problems sleeping may also benefi t from the use of a sauna, as steam relaxes the body. Many studies have considered using infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis.


The benefi cial effects of a sauna can also be used for the management of weight, fi bromyalgia, arthritis, Candida and tissue injuries, among others. The infrared rays knock toxins loose from fat cells in the body, and as a result, these toxins are released through sweating.


The sauna can reach a temperature of 150 degrees Fahrenheit for the most hardcore sauna-goers or can linger around 146 for those starting out on their sauna journeys. The temperatures tend to be lower than regular steam saunas and thus allow people to stay in them longer and sweat more for optimal results.


After about 20 minutes, the body begins to take on the heat, and the muscles begin to relax. With a 30-minute session, the body begins to feel rejuvenated. There is no fatigue with this but rather a newfound energy boost that lasts for the entire day. The detoxifi cation process greatly clears the mind and lasts for days onward.
