Sweating is one of the body’s main methods of detoxifying. A great way to get a good healthy sweat going is sit in a sauna. Now the Infrared Saunas differ from regular saunas in that it takes less time to start sweating. Infrared is a type of light wave used to heat objects in the sauna instead of the surrounding air. This way one’s respiratory system is not exposed to as high heat as found in conventional saunas.
Most people will begin to sweat after 10 minutes in the Infrared Sauna compared to 20-30 minutes in a conventional sauna. Deep penetration of heat allows removal of toxins, alcohol, nicotine and metals to be accomplished quickly and efficiently. It can help in improving chronic fatigue symptoms and chronic infections as well as kick the common cold before it takes hold.
Infrared Sauna Therapy can also promote muscle growth, raise growth hormone levels, reduce cellulite, raise oxygenation of the body and remove radioactive residues, along with decreasing varicose veins, hypertension and diabetes. At the Mind Body Spirit Center, we have developed a detoxification program which incorporates the use of the Infrared Sauna.
