7 Reasons the Heat Will Help You Beat the Winter Blues

Beaute Marque's Infrared Sauna

Beaute Marque’s Infrared Sauna

Whether you have heard about infrared saunas or not, let me tell you right now, they are the best thing next to sliced cheese! I can think of over a dozen movies where you see the rich and famous relaxing in a dry or steam sauna. They make the scene look so relaxing and enjoyable, but that’s Hollywood for you. If you have ever tried to sit for longer than 10 mins in the intense heat of either of these saunas (where the heat is usually in excess of 200 degrees), then you know they are anything BUT enjoyable! So if you’re choosing to sweat it out in the sauna, most likely it is because you know the health benefits of a good sweat! What if I told you that you can get the benefits of a dry or steam sauna (and more) by sitting in a relaxing infrared sauna at a tolerable 120 degrees? Infrared saunas use light waves to heat your body from the inside out. It heats your entire body core and as such, the air around you doesn’t have to get as hot to do that same job as a traditional sauna. If you are reading this thinking “why would I want to sweat?” Let me give you 7 reasons why an infrared sauna can be an amazing boost for your health and beauty concerns:
  • Detoxification-

    An Infrared Sauna causes a deep sweat at the cellular level in the body. This helps to pull toxins from the cells and excrete them from the body through your sweat. This is a major health advantage and THIS ALONE is a reason to visit your local infrared sauna weekly, but wait… there is more!
  • Weight loss-

    Sitting in a sauna will burn up to 600 calories in a single one hour session. While this alone will not produce weight loss, doing this in conjunction with clean eating and exercise it can speed up your weight loss results. I’m sure you’re on board by now, but probably wondering how you can sit and read a book for an hour and burn as many calories as an hour of burpees?! When you heat the core temperature of your body your heart beats faster and moves more blood through out your body in an attempt to bring the core temperature down. The faster your heart beats, the more calories you burn. Which leads me to the next reason you should grab a package of infrared sauna visits.
  • Increases Circulation and Lowers Blood Pressure-

    In an article by “The Mayo Clinic” they reported evidence that use of an infrared sauna can help with congestive heart failure. They stated that more studies need to be done to know the extent that it can help, but assuredly advised that “no adverse side effects were reported” and as such, may be a great option for those with high blood pressure or decreased circulation.
  • Pain Relief-

    In this same article they reported that there have been benefits reported for those with rheumatoid arthritis. The heat of an infrared saunas can help relieve many pains and aches in the body, such as sore or injured muscles, fatigued muscles from a rigorous workout, cramps etc.
  • Wound Healing-

    The use of the infrared sauna has shown faster cell regeneration which can help with wound healing as well as speed muscle fiber regeneration after a workout.
  • Skin Purification-

    The deep sweat not only removes toxins deep from the cellular level but it also helps clean out blocked pores as well as improve the circulation of the blood to the skin giving you a healthier appearance.
  • Anti-Aging Benefits-

    There are studies that show that the infrared wavelengths help to encourage the body to increase collagen production, which drops dramatically as we age. Collagen is what gives your skin its healthy plump appearance, and as such is very important in keeping the skin young and vibrant in appearance.
If these reasons weren’t enough let’s add relaxation, especially combined with a massage, facial or detoxifying body wrap. With the temperature being lower than that of traditional sauna’s you can stay in longer, take in a good book, your meditation music or just enjoy the peace of being alone with your thoughts.
