Not only have medical studies worldwide revealed the many health benefits associated with the use of infrared saunas, doctors are also recommending their use to many of their patients. Infra red saunas are born of new technology that actually lets the heat penetrate the skin much deeper, raising the body core temperature rather than just the temperature of the skin. For easy installation, these saunas can be plugged into any 13amp socket.

The benefits of infrared saunas
Yes! Past research has indeed shown that infrared radiation can positively impact the condition of your skin. In an article titled the ‘Effects of Infrared Radiation on Skin Photo-Aging and Pigmentation published in the Yonsei Medical Journal back in 2006, researchers looked into whether or not infrared radiation had natural ant-aging benefits. The project provided 20 patients with moderate face wrinkles with infrared radiation treatment for 6 months straight, with the results revealing that the majority of patients felt that their skins texture had improved. .
There are a variety of scientific journals that promote the belief that infrared sauna treatment can positively impact your hearts health. A study by Finnish researchers tracked over two thousand middle aged men for over twenty years, with the findings conveying that those men who spent more time in a sauna less frequently died from cardiovascular related issues.
Infrared saunas are an effective solution to detoxifying your body as they use both light and heat to warm up your body. An infrared sauna can help you ‘sweat out’ a number of different unwanted toxic metals such as mercury and lead to help you get closer to feeling 100%.
Some studies have pointed towards the possibility that being exposed to infrared radiation can improve your blood flow. In a 2015 article on infrared therapy in the journal of Experimental Biology and Medicine (Shui et al.), some of the effects of infrared therapy included:
Increased artery blood flow
Increased peripheral blood circulation
Improved endothelical function
Alleviated fatigue and pain
Reduced blood pressure
It has been claimed that infrared saunas are helpful when trying to alleviate symptoms for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. A medical study from Oosterveld et al. in 2009 revealed that after eight infrared sauna sessions, 17 arthritis and 17 ankylosing spondylitis sufferers experienced general improvements on levels of pain and stiffness that were “statistically significant”. In addition to this, other studies in this field have also supported claims that infrared saunas can help with pain relief for chronic conditions and relief following strength or endurance training.
Yes. Infrared saunas can play a huge part in helping you reach your weight loss goals! A study by Reever in 2010 titled ‘The effects of repeated thermal therapy on quality of life in patients with type II diabetes mellitus’, studied a group of people with type 2 diabetes after undergoing infrared sauna treatment for three months. The results showed that those who were involved in the study experienced benefits in terms of their fatigue and stress levels. On top of this, using a sauna is a much more easier weight loss method to regularly complete as opposed to many of the alternatives.
Saunas are widely renowned as a good place to relax. Sitting in a sauna makes your body release endorphins, the same chemical that is released following a workout. So by using an infrared sauna, you are able to experience that feel good factor that you have after a workout, without having to complete a lung busting session on the treadmill or exercise bike.
There are no answers to how often you should use your infrared sauna. However, they are safe to use everyday if you wish. On average people use them 3-4 times a week, with 30-45 minutes sessions each time. If you are new to using an infrared sauna, it can take time for your body to adjust. As long as you retain good hydration before and after your sauna sessions and listen to your body, you are safe to use your infrared sauna every day.
