The infrared energy emitted can infiltrate deeply into muscle tissue (up to 1.5” deep!). The energy that’s absorbed into the muscle tissues dilates the surrounding blood vessels, which helps reduce spasms and stiffness of the joints. Both general aches and pains and those associated with Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis are relieved. Pain and swelling and swifter healing from sprains or strains have also been shown if sauna therapy is used within a day or two after injury!
The sauna’s infrared technology cleanses your body of toxins that become stored in fat cells. These toxins may include heavy metals (mercury, lead, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, cholesterol).
By increasing peripheral blood flow and perspiration, an Infrared Sauna can give off about 500 grams of sweat and burn 350 calories during just one sauna session. Even cellulite can be lessened as the pounds and fat cells begin to melt away.
While vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels occurs during a sauna session, the heart rate increases in addition to cardiac output and your metabolic rate. The body tries to cool itself in this way, thereby giving you a healthy cardiac workout without exerting yourself at all. This can reduce your blood pressure and get your heart in shape!
The increased circulation of blood leads to the release of endorphins and an overall feeling of deep relaxation in the entire body. Both physical and mental stress are relieved in the warmth of the Carbon 360 far infrared rays.
Blood circulation can bring fresh nutrients to the skin’s surface, improving the tone, texture and elasticity of your skin. At the same time, toxins (dirt, makeup, creams, pollution) found in the pores are removed with the sweat being released.
The intense warmth will increase your muscles’ flexibility and range of motion. This can help stiff, scarred or contracted ligaments, tendons, and joint capsules loosen up, stretch and become more flexible!
