Infrared Saunas are known to be relaxing environments where you can find your Zen. At fisio, we understand that they offer so much more. A traditional sauna sees the air temperature cranked up, which can be uncomfortable, making it hard to breathe. An Infrared Sauna works by heating your body directly without warming the air around you. Instead, it uses infrared wavelength frequency, a deeper heat activating technology penetrating directly on the skin while operating at lower temperatures than regular saunas. This creates a more comfortable experience and provides many therapeutic benefits.
One focus is on detoxing the body. Infrared light can penetrate the two outermost layers of the skin, your epidermis and dermis. By doing this, it can reach all the way to your fat-rich subcutaneous tissue, which is also known as the subcutis or hypodermis. This is where your sweat glands are found. Sweating in the infrared heat leads to the release of fat-soluble toxins, heavy metals, sodium and more. Ridding your body of these toxins will elevate your overall health and vitality.
For those looking to recover from sports and exercise, an Infrared Sauna helps to flush out any built-up lactic acid. It can also help soothe any tension in your muscles. It is advised to do simple stretching movements when inside the sauna to help this process. Your physiotherapist will inform you of the ones that will support your recovery. Added to all of this are Infrared Sauna’s immune-boosting abilities. The high temperature of the sauna raises the core temperature of the body. This triggers the immune system to produce more white blood cells. As these are responsible for cleansing harmful bacteria and viruses, it works almost like an artificial fever response. A safe and easy addition to your sports and wellness routine, Infrared Saunas are suitable for most people and also offer long-term benefits like reducing anxiety and stress and helping you achieve better sleep.
An Infrared Sauna session lasts 15 minutes, but you should only stay in the sauna for as long as you are comfortable. It is advised to pace yourself and, when necessary, take breaks. You will still achieve the same results. It is recommended to increase your water intake in advance of the treatment. This would ideally be two days before. Ensure you have a light snack before to avoid low blood sugar levels. Remove any makeup before entering the sauna and take a cold shower after to cleanse any toxins sweated out. It will also increase circulation and help you to ease back into the day.
