Our team of specialists uses infrared saunas for faster recovery. Infrared saunas provide deeper comfort and relaxation, as well as the best heat transfer method for the tissues and muscles that need it. The infrared sauna can heat the body to temperatures of between 115 and 125 degrees Fahrenheit. It promotes increased blood flow, which removes metabolic waste from your body, and oxygen-rich blood to muscles that are less tired for quicker recovery.
How do Infrared Saunas work?
Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissues and provide natural warmth. The body absorbs 99% of the infrared light emitted by Infrared Saunas while traditional saunas use steam or hot rocks to create extremely high temperatures, which can make it unbearable. Infrared saunas heat the body directly, allowing for a deeper, more detoxifying sweat.
Benefits of Infrared Sauna in Clarks Summit
Infrared saunas can detox 7-10 times faster than a traditional sauna. The average person in a sauna sweats out 3% of the toxins and 97% of the water. A Sunlighten sauna is where the average person sweats out 20% of the toxins and 80% of the water.
Infrared sauna heat therapy can relieve back, neck, and arthritis symptoms. Continuous low-level heat therapy has been shown to be effective in relieving lower back and upper body pain.
Infrared sauna sessions can help you burn between 200-600 calories in 30 minutes. The body uses infrared saunas to cool down, resulting in a significant increase in heart rate and cardiac output. Infrared saunas raise the core temperature of the body, resulting in passive cardiovascular conditioning. Infrared heat therapy causes your body to naturally increase circulation and sweat. You will be amazed at the results of using a heart rate monitor.
Infrared heats muscles to increase blood flow. This is similar to exercise. An increase in blood flow is also caused by an increase of body temperature. Infrared heat aids in the resolution of inflammatory exudates, edema, and infiltrates.
Regular Sunlighten sauna use can improve your skin’s appearance. With less scarring, open wounds heal faster. Infrared heat therapy is effective in treating skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It can also reduce wrinkles, make skin appear radiant, firm and improve skin texture and elasticity.
