Sauna therapy has been enjoyed for centuries and continues to be utilized for a multitude of benefits. Today there is a technology that allows for a deeper heating of the tissues at a more comfortable temperature. Traditional saunas heat the air around you at a range of 160 to 200 degrees. Infrared saunas use infrared light to heat the body and increase metabolism. Infrared saunas can detoxify at a lower temperature range of 110 to 130 degrees which creates a more comfortable experience. Some key benefits our infrared sauna users enjoy are:
The heat generated by an infrared sauna stimulates energy at a cellular level which, in turn, increases the body’s production of white blood cells. These cells form a component of your blood and act as your immune system’s first line of defense when infection strikes. When a harmful substance enters your body, white blood cells detect it and control the immune system’s response. Clearly, these small cells are critical when it comes to the functionality of our immune systems. An increased production of white blood cells, as stimulated by infrared sauna use, can help the body to more effectively fight off illnesses.
