Celebrities, health care professionals, auto-immune sufferers, athletes, biohackers, and so many others are making it a priority to sweat in an infrared sauna. What do they all know that you don’t? The answer is simple. In many ways, they’ve found prodigal kryptonite in next-level wellness.
Infrared sauna therapy has been used for hundreds of years and in the last decade has taken to a popular surge in the mainstream. It’s not the traditional sauna found in the gym locker room, it’s a dry sweat powered by infrared technology – extracting deeply rooted toxins from the body’s fatty layer and excreting them via sweat. Genius? It just maybe, based on the rave results people are having with it. The full spectrum rays penetrate deeply beneath the skin to “shake things up” relieving you of inflammation & aliments while delivering a host of positive benefits.
“I don’t need to pay extra for the sauna when I get it for free at my gym”… Well, most likely, your gym includes a traditional sauna experience which offers about a 2-3% detox variable, not to mention other people joining you which invites germs. Infrared saunas are private and boast nearly 7 times more detox efficiency. Let’s talk about efficiency for a moment. Putting your body in a state of consistent toxin shedding is paramount to a metabolic overhaul. Let me simplify in that infrared saunas help to re-set your metabolism, boosting a sluggish lymphatic system! This places you on the roadmap to a more efficiently working machine (or body)!!
What are the main benefits of an infrared sauna? DETOX, as already mentioned, is the umbrella benefit for which the other benefits fall under. Think of it like this: The heat makes your body sweat while eliminating toxic load from your body. The toxins are like nasty little trolls ravaging your body in a host of ways. Toxins manifest themselves differently for everyone – I may feel arthritis in my joints and another person may present with heightened allergies, and another person may develop auto-immune disease or even cancer!
When your body begins to understand and accept the detoxification, you’ll feel the other “benefits” of STRESS RELIEF. The synergy of toxins and endorphins being released in the sauna naturally help your body to cope better and store less stress hormone.
WEIGHT LOSS is perhaps one of the most welcomed side effects of infrared treatment. As the metabolism corrects itself, you will find pounds can slip away. The key here is staying well hydrated and sticking to a balanced nutritional regimen. While some use infrared sauna therapy (IR) to complement their workouts and ease aching sore muscles, others who are unable to exercise regularly enjoy the huge calorie burn in place of a workout. Neither is right or wrong!
IMPROVED IMMUNITY may be the most relevant benefit of these unprecedented times we are living in! Infrared saunas are often used to fight off simple bugs. No one is sure yet how Covid-19 works in the viral hemisphere, but we do know those with stronger immune systems fair better. When you remove the toxic load from the body, you can make yourself less prone to infection. In these trying times, immunity-boosting anti-viral therapies just seem like a good idea. There’s nothing to lose in trying it out. Each individual sauna suite is held to the highest disinfection standard. By virtue of the cedarwood construction and heat temps above 135 degrees, you should treat yourself to an anti-microbial & anti-viral immune system recharge!
IMPROVED HEART HEALTH is often a misunderstood part of the Infrared paradigm. Those with heart issues are often afraid to venture into a heated room, likening an IR sauna to a traditional unit or steam room. While checking with your physician is always recommended, I urge you to look at the data which supports IR for heart patients. Contrary to some popular misperceptions, IR therapy has actually been proven to improve circulation, lower blood pressure AND decrease the overall risk of cardiac disease & events. This is achieved by the slight but consistent heart rate elevation during a session – think of it as mimicking an actual cardio workout, just slower and controlled. All the while, promoting cardiovascular conditioning. The more conditioned the heart, the more energy you will have.
SKIN & SLEEP are two things we rave about to all new clients. Even after one session of infrared, your skin will shine, and you’ll sleep like a baby that night. To define this deeper, let me say that IR dominates in treating skin issues ranging from acne and eczema to burn and deep wound healing! Further, IR will not make you tired, by contrast, it invigorates, giving you energy when you need it and allowing you to more deeply relax when you’re ready. Because sleep is directly correlated to our stress levels, you are combatting a double-edged sword when you sit in an infrared sauna.
DROP SAUNA STUDIO + ATHLETICOUTURE is a place like no other. Two locations in the Las Vegas area and a sister location in New Orleans, Louisiana! You sit in your own sauna suite, a private room that is a simple, clean, and comfortable place to get your sweat on. Forty-minute sessions amid your favorite meditation, music, or TV show. You choose how to spend your time. Most of our clients claim this as the best part of their day. “a little ME time with a zillion benefits!”
Difference between needing it or wanting it? This is a great question for those contemplating the sauna habit. There are some who absolutely need it for pain relief. This is evident as 30-40% of our clientele sauna regularly because it effectively helps to ward off auto-immune symptoms, pain, soreness, swelling…overall as a weapon against the nasty inflammatory process. The other 60% are getting ahead of the process and making full-body DETOX a part of their regimen in hopes to forego some of these issues later.
