Healing Benefits of Infrared Sauna

Healing Benefits of Infrared Sauna

It’s hard to think of a more enjoyable way to relieve pain, assist detoxification, and speed the healing process than relaxing in a sauna. We are not talking about just any sauna; research has shown Infrared Saunas to be more cleansing than traditional saunas due to the deep penetration of the infrared energy. 

The healing energy of the infrared is attributed to its ability to penetrate the tissues of the body several inches deep. Therefore the body is warmed from within rather than from the surrounding air, as in other saunas.   This is a key factor in assisting detoxification, since impurities and toxins are either killed or forced out of the cells in search for a more comfortable temperature, much the same way a fever works.

Furthermore, its dry, warming energy is highly compatible with the human body. People who are vulnerable to cardiovascular or breathing problems that might be exacerbated by the high heat and humidity of a traditional sauna, can safely enjoy the warming benefits in the infrared heat.

Infrared saunas also enhance circulation and increase oxygen within the body. These processes lead to faster healing and a reduction in painwhether acute or chronic.

Infrared saunas have been used for decades for pain relief, cardiac conditioning, skin care, detoxification and much more. It is an excellent addition to a massage or acupuncture treatment.  Therefore, if booked with any other service at Acupuncture Family and Wellness, your sauna session is half off.

We believe so strongly in the benefits of the Infrared Sauna that we are offering a free 30 minute session for the next 30 days. Book your Infrared Sauna session today to experience the cleansing and relaxing benefits!
