Here in sunny Scottsdale, we see tons of trends of people wanting to try the newest way to get fit, Detox, lose weight or just achieve overall health. Our Far Infrared Sauna is among the many trends and fads. Willow Wellness has, however, done our research on the health benefits of the Infrared Sauna and this is more than just a FAD. This Fitness and Detox booster does the trick.
Unlike a regular sauna, infrared saunas don't heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared lamps to warm your body directly. They are able to hit your body in a much different way than most traditional saunas. The Far Infrared sauna that we have here at Willow Wellness Center is a two person sauna. (I prefer and recommend that it is used solo) I have many clients using it after massages, workouts and by itself to just relax or heal.
The Far Infrared sauna helps the body to Detox by helping the body sweat from its's Lymphatic system. This is important because the human body stores many of it's toxins and its gunk in this lymphatic system. This is one of the best and fastest ways to get rid of many health issues that you are having because of our environments and food that we are exposed to everyday.
Infrared Saunas are believed to be more effective because it has been shown that only 80-85% of sweat is water the non-water portion is:
There are many more toxins and other things found in our sweat after an Infrared session like drugs and alcohol and this seems to be the best way to get rid of them fast. This is a great way to flush out our system and boost your immune system.
Infrared therapy dilates the blood vessels, effectively increasing circulation throughout the body. This increase in circulation not only helps remove waste products but also helps to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Since our skins depend on these nutrients to form collagen, Infrared therapy can be a great way to improve skin tone and reduce wrinkle.s
The Infrared Sauna has been shown to help people with chronic pain. Researcher in the Netherlands have conducted studies showing a great reduction in chronic pain for those who has Rheumatoid Arthritis. They believe these benefits resulted from the reduction of inflammation levels, which lessen the friction between the joints that resulted in the lessening of chronic pain.
There are so many more benefits and these are just three that top the list. Come in to see us and inquire about our protocols for:
