Infrared Sauna Benefits
Infrared saunas warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. It uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally. The result is deeper tissue penetration. Below are specific benefits of the Sauna at Selah Day Spa.
Detoxification Thousands of environmental toxins saturate every aspect of our living environment. These toxins are unavoidable and are often absorb into our bodies. Since humans are bio-accumulators, the large quantities and numerous types of toxins we are exposed to overwhelm our body’s ability to metabolize and get rid of them naturally and thereby accumulate in our bodies. In time, the poison from toxins may result in immune symptom problems, such as chronic pain syndromes, multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer.So, how can you best get rid of these harmful toxins? Body detoxification through sweat. The revolutionary Vital Rays Far Infrared Carbon Technology coupled with the Magnetic Flux Therapy System is the perfect solution for helping your body get rid of the environmental toxic chemicals (pesticides, heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and hydrocarbon residues). The infrared heat energy deeply penetrates tissues triggering mobilization of chemicals from fat storage and directly into sweat and the magnetic therapy promotes metabolic processing of toxins to help your body expel them.
Weight Loss Fat becomes water-soluble at a temperature of 100 F° before it begins to dissolve and enter the bloodstream to be removed from the body. The infrared heat will increase the peripheral blood flow and remove fat through sweat. Weight loss is one of the great benefits of using our sauna every day. A single therapeutic sauna session will burn as much as 300-600 calories.Another problematic and difficult to get rid of waste is cellulite, a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes that are trapped in pockets below the skin. The infrared heat can assist this condition, as profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body. Magnetic therapy can facilitate the metabolism process and thereby speeds up the removal of these wastes.
Cardiovascular Health A heating effect deep in the muscular tissues and internal organs is caused by the infrared rays generated by our Vital Rays Far Infrared Carbon Technology. Our bodies respond to this deep heating effect via a hypothalamic-induced increase in heart volume and rate. This heart stress is beneficial because it leads to a cardiovascular training and conditioning effect. Medical research confirms that the use of a sauna provides cardiovascular conditioning as the body works to cool itself and involves substantial increases in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic, while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness.Your heart is your most vital organ, take good care of it!
Pain Relief It has been proven that heat reduces pain sensation by direct action on both free-nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves. The Vital Rays penetrate heat deep into the skin, over 1 ½ inches into the muscle tissue, and alleviates symptoms such as back pain, sprains, strains, joint stiffness, muscle spasms and headaches as well as pains due to conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Magnetic therapy can assist in relieving the pain by blocking pain sensations. It improves blood flow and oxygen to enhance the body’s natural healing process. The improved blood flow and fluid exchange to the injured tissue helps reduce pain and inflammation.
Skin Beautification Vital Saunas are excellent for increasing blood circulation to the skin, which is essential for beautiful, youthful, glowing skin! This increased blood flow brings important nutrients to subcutaneous and surface tissue, promoting cellular activity and growth. By freeing your skin from accumulated dirt and dry skin cells you will experience a new inner glow. The Vital Rays help firm and improve skin tone and elasticity. Infrared heat has been noted to reduce acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions or cuts. Additionally, open wounds can heal quicker with reduced scarring.
Body Flexibility Studies show that tissues heated to 130° and then stretched have exhibited an elastic elongation that persists long after the stretch is removed. A Vital Saunas’ infrared heat is a therapeutic haven for athletes looking for a pre-workout to warm up muscles for range of motion and increase flexibility to help prevent injury. It is also ideal for pre-warm-up for physical therapy and massage therapy, or for a relaxing your muscles after a long workout.Magnetic therapy has been noted to help increase athletic endurance and performance, as well as promote the healing process of body aches and inflammation reduction.Improving your body’s flexibility is vital to living a healthier life!
Relax & Rejuvenate Perhaps the most immediate relief you will get from basking in a Vital Sauna is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stresses and tensions of the fast-paced life, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated! Infrared heat will give your body an overall massaging effect, soothing jangled nerves and knotted muscles.Magnetic therapy can help reduce stress and enhance your body’s energy supply!
Lower Blood Pressure Studies show that repeated far infrared sauna treatments improve impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for infrared sauna use for arteriosclerosis.
Blood Circulation Heating of muscles with infrared heat produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. As your body produces sweat to cool itself, your heart works at a higher rate to pump blood, increasing your overall circulation. At the same time the increased work load from your cardiovascular system helps free up harmful molecules in your blood vessels, allowing your body to flush them out through your sweat glands. Strong evidence suggests that magnetic therapy may help to increase blood circulation.
Cancer Therapy Some researchers believe that infrared therapy can help stimulate the body’s immune system by elevating body temperature. The infrared sauna’s deep heat penetration raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the “fever,” the body’s immune system is strengthened. The intense heat also stimulates production of white blood cells and therefore helping to target tumor cells. Studies have shown that extreme heat protects healthy cells and makes tumor cells more susceptible to radiation. This makes infrared heat a useful addition to cancer therapy treatment as it enables the use of lower doses of radiation. Other studies have shown that breast cancer was less prevalent among women who frequently use infrared saunas.
In Bob Greene’s newest cutting-edge program, 20 Years Younger, he offers four cornerstones for looking and feeling your best – nutrition, exercise, skin care and sleep. He recognizes that Sunlighten saunas can enhance all four of these pillars. “Sunlighten™ infrared saunas are an excellent enhancement to the 20 Years Younger pillars. They can be an effective tool for detoxification, weight loss, skin rejuvenation, relaxation and post workout muscle recovery.” Bob recommends Sunlighten™ infrared saunas because of their superior, clinically-tested technology. Our proprietary SoloCarbon heaters provide 7x more effective detoxification than those found in traditional saunas AND are the only infrared technology with clinical data shown to reduce blood pressure, increase core temperature and aid in weight loss.
