When you sit in a Clearlight Infrared Sauna, you are exposed to far infrared light, the same light that comes from the sun. This light penetrates your body, stimulating the sweat glands to release sweat and toxins. While the same is true of a traditional sauna, the infrared sauna does this through light instead of high heat. The light penetrates the body’s tissues deeper and offers a higher thermal response without the uncomfortable high room heat. Not only is it more comfortable, the amount of toxins released during an infrared sauna is higher than a traditional sauna.
The metabolic effect of using an infrared sauna is another reason to consider adding this option to your wellness routine. When the infrared heat penetrates your body, it forces the body to burn calories. This is achieved through the sweat process, stimulating your circulation system and heart rate, raising your metabolism, similar to what happens when you exercise. This can improve your weight loss efforts and help remove toxins that could be detrimental to your health at the same time.
Weight loss and detoxification are not the only benefits of using an infrared sauna as part of your health routine.
Other benefits include:
Reducing muscle and joint pain through deep heat
Better skin tone
Improved immune function
