A far infrared sauna is safer and more beneficial to your health than a traditional sauna. The far infrared sauna affects your body in much the same way that moderate exercise does. It increases circulation, soothes aching muscles and joints, flushes toxins and decreases inflammation. The infrared sauna at Balance Acupuncture also has special LED lighting system to help with SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and ionizer to help with breathing conditions; such as asthma.
Some of the health benefits of the infrared sauna are;
- It burns calories as if you were exercising, over 400 calories for a 30 minute session.
- It detoxifies better than a traditional sauna; since the circulation is affected at a deeper level, significantly more toxins are exuded from the body.
- It improves cardiovascular strength and lowers blood pressure.
- It alleviates muscle and joint pain.
- It improves the tone and elasticity of the skin.
It especially helpful for people with the following conditions;
- arthritis (all forms of joint pain)
- asthma or bronchitis
- muscle aches or injuries
- sleep problems due to stress or pain
- skin conditions; such as eczema or psoriasis, it also speed wound healing and softens scars
