How It Works DETOX SKIN CIRCULATION RELAXATION PAIN RELIEF WEIGHT LOSS
Full spectrum infrared sauna provides near, mid and far infrared. It is beneficial for healing by providing detoxification by sweating out toxins. It can aid in weight loss, pain relief and helps skin purification. The warmth increases relaxation of muscle tissue and joints and improves circulation which assists with decreased inflammatory response. A study from The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology concluded that LED near infrared (NIR) restores enzyme activity and reduces cell death by half. (1) A recent Japanese study published in the journal, Internal Medicine, showed that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period. Researchers concluded that infrared heat therapy is effective for chronic pain treatment. (2)
