Far infrared saunas have shown to assist in weight loss, painmanagement, skin purification, detoxification and stress reduction. Far infrared saunas can also provide relief to patients suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and certain skin conditions. The far infrared sauna therapy used at Ultramax Wellness heats the body and penetrates deeply into joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Far infrared sauna benefits the body by heating it directly. This causes a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat which promotes relaxation and improved sleep. The benefits of an infrared sauna include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating, deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Lower Blood Pressure
Infrared Saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows using an infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.
Anti-Aging & Skin Purification
The near infrared wavelength (sometimes referred to as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production which reduces wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
Near infrared therapy also stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
Studies have also shown you can burn upwards of 600 calories per session while relaxing at the same time! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use—especially in the mid-infrared range—can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Scientific research also concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhanced the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases the repair of wounds and preventing infection.
