#14 – Infrared Sauna

I heard about the benefits of an infrared sauna so I went to a few sessions and loved it so much that I joined for an unlimited monthly membership. I’m now in my 2nd month and still love it! I go 5 to 6 times a week 🔥 🤩

In a nutshell, you have a private room for 50 minutes. I spend 40-45 minutes in the hot room and the other 5-10 changing and wiping the sweat away……haha but oh so true! They provide towels and entertainment. I watch Netflix while in the sauna. There’s a tv in the changing area and a glass door front on the sauna so you take the remote control into the sauna and play whatever you want. The sound is wired to play in the sauna. Perfect!

Below is copy from the Perspire website. They did a good job explaining everything so I copied their copy.

Perspire is a wellness experience where the results are cumulative. This means the more you come in, the better you will feel. Just like working out or dieting, it will take a few sessions before benefits begin to manifest.

Guests choose from an array of color light therapy colors, premium entertainment options, and temperature settings.

You may notice that it takes 10-20 minutes to break a sweat in your first session. This is because our saunas are heating your body directly, passively raising your core temperature 2-3 degrees, rather than simply heating your skin with hot air. This is a defining difference from a traditional or community sauna you might have used before. As your body becomes more accustomed to raising your core temperature on a regular basis, your sweat will become more excessive and start sooner into your session.

The benefits include: Detox the body, Enhance immunity, Clear skin, Improve sleep,  Relax the mind, Ease pain, Burn calories.

The recipe is infrared sauna + red light therapy + color light therapy!

Infrared heat: near, mid, and far-infrared(IR) waves penetrate the skin, muscles, joints, and tissues to increase circulation, speed oxygen flow, and help rid the body of harmful toxins.

Near, mid, and far infrared waves penetrate the skin, muscles, joints, and tissues to increase circulation, speed oxygen flow, and help rid the body of harmful toxins. Using our infrared saunas helps to remove impurities from your cells, specifically the cells inside our fat where our body stores waste and harmful toxins such as cholesterol and heavy metals.

Red Light Therapy(RLT) utilizes low-level laser light, set at a specific wavelength, that safely penetrates the body’s surface tissue to energize cell regeneration and reduce inflammation.

Clinical grade Red Light Therapy utilizes low-level laser light, set at a specific wavelength, to safely penetrate deep into the body in order to stimulate the mitochondria within your body’s cells. The mitochondria function’s as the engine of the cell, powering the biochemical reactions that encourage cell rejuvenation, battle inflammation and boost collagen production. Clinical grade Red Light Therapy is used globally as part of treatments for Neuropathy, skin conditions, hair loss, athletic recovery, and much more.

Color Light Therapy is a method of treatment that uses the visible spectrum (colors) of electromagnetic light to treat diseases. It is a centuries-old concept used successfully over the years to treat various diseases and ailments.

Every color, each with its own frequency, is a form of vibrational energy. The colors are red, orange, yellow, green, purple and blue.

All organs, cells, and atoms exist as energy, and each form has its frequency. Each of our organs and energy centers vibrates and harmonizes with the frequencies of these colors. When various parts of the body deviate from these expected normal vibrations, one can assume that the body is either diseased or at least not functioning properly. The vibratory rates inherent in color are such that they balance the diseased energy pattern found in the body.

Colors generate electrical impulses and magnetic currents or fields of energy that are prime activators of the biochemical and hormonal processes in the human body. Light is responsible for turning on the brain and the body. Light enters the body through the eyes and skin. When even a single photon of light enters the eye, it lights up the entire brain.

Super cool! Now let’s dive deeper into the benefits:

Detox:

Infrared sauna heat increases your blood circulation to help stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins in the body which can then be eliminated by the liver and bowel. Regular infrared sauna sessions can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals such as lead, mercury, nickel, alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.

Burn calories:

Yes, you will lose water weight in a session, but you will also burn up to 400 calories and those are real results that affect your waistline.

As you relax in an infrared sauna, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart will work harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation.

This increase in your metabolism will burn calories all while you relax, as well as long after your session ends.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of an infrared sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system as that of running, and regular use may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.

Ease pain:

An infrared sauna session could be the safe, easy pain therapy that finally gives you relief.

The deep heat that occurs during an infrared sauna session helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster.

The heat from the sauna also helps to reduce soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion.

Infrared heat helps to relieve muscle tension and thereby helping your body to make the most of its intended healing abilities.

Heal the natural way with zero negative side effects to start living a pain free life.

Enhance immune system:

We wash our hands, take our vitamins, & avoid germs the best we can, but without a healthy immune system you are vulnerable.

Each 40-minute infrared sauna session raises your core temperature inducing an artificial fever. A fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.

Not only will you come out of every session glowing on the outside, but you’ll be stronger on the inside.

Clears and improves skin:

The profuse sweating achieved during your 40-minute infrared sauna session carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells. This leaves the skin glowing and immaculately clean.

Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface. As a result, you will see improved tone, elasticity, texture and fresh color. Increased circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts.

Plus – cellulite reduction is an added benefit!

The increased heart rate and localized blood circulation works together to stop fatty deposits and fibrosis from accumulating liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Leave every sauna session with detoxed skin cells & a lit from within glow.

Improves sleep:

Infrared sauna sessions have been proven to improve sleep patterns.

Not only are infrared saunas relaxing, but the chromotherapy Perspire includes in each session has sleep inducing benefits as well. Blue, for example, is a mentally relaxing color that has a pacifying effect on the nervous system encouraging great relaxation. It is ideal for sleep problems.

Relaxing, soothing blue rays combined with infrared heat bring great calm and peace to the mind that is worried, excited, or in a constant nervous state.

Over time, these therapies will improve natural melatonin and other sleep related hormone levels to help you get better rest naturally.
