A far infrared sauna adds a modern twist to the traditional sauna. Instead of relying on just flame-stoked heat or stream, an infrared sauna uses electromagnetic and infrared lamps to provide warmth. The process makes it possible to provide similar therapeutic benefits at a lower temperature. At Float Coppell we have a Sunlighten Infrared Sauna. Sunlighten’s premier, patented 3 in 1 full spectrum infrared sauna is the first and only sauna that empowers you to customize each wavelength to optimize the specific health benefit you want. Speaking of benefits, check out the benefits of far infrared below.
- Improves Heart Health
One of the main benefits of a far infrared sauna is that it improves your heart health considerably. It takes just a few minutes for your body’s natural response to be activated. You will notice sweat appearing on your skin. The session will increase blood flow and widen the blood vessels while increasing your heart rate. When you consider the physiology, a far infrared sauna mimics exercise and in turn is known to reduce blood pressure.
- Muscle Recovery
No one wants muscle soreness to slow them down. Whether you’re a competitive athlete, a weekend golfer or simply trying to stay active, proper muscle recovery impacts your ability to keep doing what you love. Sunlighten’s infrared sauna therapy penetrates muscles deeper, increases blood flow and helps the body recover faster so you can stay in the game of sports and life.
- Weight Loss
Maintaining a healthy weight is important to your quality of life yet can be so challenging. Changing your behaviors is key to success. You can create an enjoyable habit that will help your efforts in many ways with sauna sessions. You get all the benefits of sauna and infrared light therapy in a pleasant session. It’s an easy lifestyle and behavior change you’ll actually want to stick with for sauna weight loss support.
- Provides Relaxation
In addition to the above, using a far infrared sauna is good for your body as it provides relaxation. Infrared saunas help you relax in natural comfort with an invigorating deep tissue sweat that will have you feeling fully refreshed after every sauna session. You will be enveloped in soothing warmth to help you relieve stress, ease your muscles, and fully relax.
- Fights Insomnia
If you are having trouble going to sleep, you should try a sauna session. According to Professor Michael Hamblin, “Infrared therapy may improve the amount and quality of sleep. The mechanism for this effect has not been firmly established but may be related to the ability of infrared to act as an “exercise mimetic.” It is well known that physical exercise will improve disturbed sleep. Infrared radiation can increase blood flow and oxygen metabolism in the muscles and the skin and could trigger a biochemical cascade resulting in improved sleep.”
- Boosts Immunity
Lastly, regular far infrared sauna sessions can help improve your immunity. Using a sauna regularly helps your body stay well. An Austrian study5 of 25 healthy subjects who regularly used saunas found they had significantly fewer episodes of common colds than those who did not. This benefit becomes more significant, especially after 14 weeks of consecutive sauna use. To maximize these benefits, it’s recommended to use it at least twice a week throughout the year.
