Promotes Relaxation 

One of the main benefits of using an infrared sauna is the complete feeling of relaxation you experience as the soothing heat relieves stress and tension in the muscles throughout the entire body. Relaxation continues even after your session as your body temperature decreases. A sauna can truly be the perfect environment for a much-needed moment of self-care, peace and reflection. You can use this time to meditate or to check in with your body whilst stretching out your muscles and focusing on your breathing. It can be revitalising to have your very own space free from distractions. 


Sweat Out Toxins

Far infrared heat waves are designed to penetrate skin up to 45mm deep making them extremely efficient in opening pores to release toxins. This means that infrared saunas can help your body to eliminate a significant amount of toxins through sweat.


Muscle Recovery

Heat from an infrared sauna can also help to increase blood circulation, which ultimately could help relieve pain and ease soreness associated with tight muscles after a workout or strenuous exercise. Effective muscle recovery is vital to maintaining performance within any activity as it allows you to continue to train.


Tighten Skin

Far-infrared saunas can help improve lymphatic drainage which helps to reduce swelling and naturally tightens skin. A study conducted in 2006 also demonstrated that regular infrared sauna use supported an increase in natural collagen production. 


So there you have it - a range of undeniably appealing health benefits provided by far-infrared saunas. If you haven’t tried a far-infrared sauna, book into your local spa today.
