Detox Pod (Infrared Sauna Therapy)
Sweating is a great way to burn calories and remove unwanted toxins from your body. Exercise is an incredible way to reap the benefits of sweating, but what else is there?
Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. And we’re just getting started on the benefits!
Infrared sauna technology will relax your entire body, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin. By increasing circulation and sweating, you will encourage your body to shed extra weight.
There are 3 different levels of infrared light that represent the different sizes in infrared wavelengths; they refer to the intensity of the treatment. You will find that most infrared saunas only have one these levels.
Each level has unique benefits:
- Near-infrared – are best for wound healing and increased immune function
- Middle-infrared – are ideal for increasing circulation and promoting muscle relaxation
- Far-infrared – are used primarily for detoxification purposes
Top 6 Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy
- Weight Loss
Sweating is a part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that involves significant increases in heart rate and metabolic rate. This process consumes a considerable amount of energy, which is measured in calories.
The heat generated by an infrared sauna will increase your heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss.
An article, titled, Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories.
- Natural Detoxification
Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins.
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.
- Pain Relief
If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.
- Improved Circulation
As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.
- Skin Purification
Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores. Through increasing circulation your skin will become clearer, softer, and healthier-looking.
