Far Infrared Sauna
When you think of the word "sauna", you likely think of a traditional hot rocks or steam sauna that, if you have used one, will likely conjure memories of intense and uncomfortable heat. However, an infrared sauna does not use the same type of technology. Instead, infrared rays penetrate deep into your skin and do not require the temperature of the sauna to be anywhere near that of a steam or hot rocks sauna. Not only does this conserve energy and feel more comfortable- but it also offers a wide range of additional benefits that more traditional saunas cannot match.
Adding Detoxification to Your Overall Health Program
No matter how much effort you put into eating healthy and exercising regularly, there are toxins present in your body that must be removed in order to promote a truly healthy body. Luckily, Divine Detox, offers a unique Infrared heat sauna that is not only highly effective in removing these toxins-but can also expedite weight loss by removing fat at the same time. In fact, a single 30 minute session in an infrared sauna at Divine Detox, can burn up to 600 calories as well as eliminating 4 lbs from your body in the form of sweat. This sauna is not another weight loss fad. This sauna is proven to work for weight loss and millions of people are already discovering the true benefits of infrared heat.
What is Infrared?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. It is naturally occurring from the sun.
Benefits of Infrared Saunas
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared heats the body directly causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna therapy helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Lower Blood Pressure
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows that using an infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.
Anti-Aging & Skin Purification
The infrared wavelength (sometimes referred to as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
Far infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
Studies have shown that a 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use—especially in the mid IR range—can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevent infection.
Infrared Saunas Vs. Traditional Heaters
Infrared heat is very gentle. The experience is similar to lying in the sun on a warm day and feeling the heat radiate to the core of your body. Unlike traditional (hot rock or steam) saunas–which operate at well in excess of 200°F–infrared heat has the benefit of being effective at a more comfortable operating temperature of 100°-150°F.
Traditional saunas heat the air vs. the body directly which can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue vs. simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
