Warm Up This Winter with a Personal Infrared Sauna

Raking away the last of the auburn fall leaves and saying goodbye to Thanksgiving celebrations, there’s no denying that winter is here.

As you pull out your winter coats, increase your home’s temperature, and bring out the Christmas decorations, it’s impossible to deny that this is the most wonderful time of the year. In preparation for the incoming chill, winter blues, and winter cold, why not invest in a personal sauna?

Home saunas adorn your home with opulent luxury and offer a personal retreat that’s unlike any other. Here’s why getting a personal infrared home sauna this winter is the best idea:

Combat winter depression

Also known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), winter blues are very real and turn up just as the seasons are changing. This mood disorder brings with it feelings of lethargy, a drop in serotonin levels, and a generally bleak view of life.

Heading into the sauna more frequently in the cold winter months provides a mood boost unlike any other. During the relaxing session, the muscle tension in the face and neck relaxes, leading to a calming sensation washing over you. Additionally, by improving blood circulation and reducing blood pressure, saunas boost serotonin and endorphin levels too.

Stay warm

When the sunshine wanes and the cold starts to set in, you’ll feel the chill in your bones. Frigid weathers call for rejuvenating sauna sessions that’ll warm you up from within.

Infrared saunas warm your body directly instead of heating the air around you (something traditional saunas do). This ensures you get the maximum benefit of the sauna, penetrating deep within your muscles and tissues for the ultimate relaxation.

Thermotherapy helps your body absorb the infrared heat and induces sweating, leaving you feeling warm and ready for the winters.

Combat sickness

If there’s one thing the winter season brings, it’s common colds and the flu. While a sauna session may not be able to immediately alleviate all the symptoms you’re experiencing, regular use will bolster your immune system and reduce your susceptibility to viruses.

The dry heat of an infrared sauna is great for improving nasal drainage, weakening the cold and flu virus by stimulating fever-like heat. Saunas have a significant impact on your symptom severity and improve your general health through their healing properties.
