Infrared saunas are effective tools for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits—making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” therapies for overall healthier living. The Rose Wellness Center, in Oakton, recently started offering this healing method and is offering a winter special of $35 per session, and the fifth session is free.
It is well known that sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. The infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results 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 uses therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation, while improving sleep.
The therapy is effectively used for weight loss, particularly when combined with a nutritional plan, as patients can burn upward of 600 calories while they relax. 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.
Another compelling reason to use the therapy is natural pain relief. Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals often incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
