Everything You Need to Know About Infrared Saunas

There are so many saunas available, that it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for yourself. However, health and fitness experts suggest infrared saunas as the go to option for most people, especially if you want to release stress and relieve muscle and joint pain.
Here’s everything you need to know about infrared saunas.

How do infrared saunas work?

Infrared saunas look like a wooden box just like any other sauna, except they come with infrared heaters that give off electromagnetic radiation to gently heat the entire body to the core.
The experience is very gentle; ideal for those who don’t like the humidity of traditional saunas or have a low tolerance for heat. The maximum temperature you can expect it to reach is up to 150 degrees fahrenheit which is tolerable for just about anyone. It’s also a lot more tolerable and easy for people to breathe in.
Some tips for using an infrared sauna include limiting your sauna session to a maximum of 40 minutes and drinking plenty of water before and during the time you spend in the sauna.
Since the body gets direct heat from the infrared lamps, it loses water through sweat more quickly.

What are the benefits of an infrared sauna?       

Some of the most popular benefits of infrared saunas include:
    • Improved blood circulation in the body
    • Easing muscle tension
    • Relieving joint pain and easing stiff joints
    • Stimulating collagen production in the skin and cleansing the skin by opening the pores
    • Stimulating release of good hormones such as endorphins that can help boost your mood

    What can you expect?

    Even if you’ve never used a sauna before, you can expect to feel amazing after it. The intense sweating can be just the release you need, and a cold shower after relaxes your body completely. Sometimes, you can expect to continue sweating long after the session is over.
