Infrared rays increases the natural production of
collagen and elastin, along with increasing the flow of nutrients to the skin via increased blood flow, thus resulting in a lasting glow. Our biological age is the age at which we age on a cellular level. Sauna therapy increases the production of heat shock proteins which work to repair damaged proteins in the aging process which is toxic to cells.
The average person carries around 700 pollutants in their body. Deep sweat at a cellular level rids the body of toxins including heavy metals, BPA, phthalates. IR rays heat your body from the inside out, allowing for deeper heat penetration. By heating the body directly, your core temperature and heart rate begins to rise more efficiently causing a release of detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Infrared sauna therapy naturally increases the levels of "feel good" neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, while reducing cortisol level which triggers a state of stress. Helpful in reducing stress, anxiety, depression.
A single session can burn anywhere from 500- 800 calories. Sometimes referred to as 'passive cardio' as IR heat raises your heart rate in a way similar to moderate intensity physical exercise and scientifically proven with the ability to lower blood pressure.
Increases circulation and white blood cell count, thus strengthening the immune system and flowing toxins from cellular levels to the skin's surface. Cognitive function, focus and attention are improved through promoted growth of new brain cells and increased norepinephrine levels.
Deep heat penetration relieves minor and chronic pains by increasing nutrient and oxygen flow to the muscle/ joint and removing lactic acid and harmful metabolic byproducts.
