far infrared saunas: health and beauty from the inside out
If you absolutely love the deeply relaxing warmth of a sauna – you probably already know that far infrared saunas in particular are so good for us, not simply because we can relax in the comfort of their dry infrared heat but also because these wonderful saunas are like having a total workout without lifting a finger!
So come, let your mind wander where it will, meditate, read a book or listen to your favourite CD in blissful solitude. Your body will thank you for it on so many levels…
Far Infrared? It’s like having a workout without lifting a finger!
lose weight and rid your body of toxins
As we all know, alcohol, nicotine and drugs contain large amounts of potentially carcinogenic pollutants which enter the body. So too, chemicals in detergents, shampoos, deodorants, cosmetics and lotions enter through the skin. Small particles of airborne pollutants enter the lungs; while food and water with chemicals, artificial sweeteners, pesticides and heavy metals easily pass into the intestines. It all sounds rather grim doesn’t it? Our point is that left unchecked, this accumulation of toxins is the greatest barrier to weight-loss, because they block crucial enzymes that are necessary for calorie burning. Fortunately, Far Infrared saunas are effective in expanding clogged capillary vessels and successful in dissolving the toxins into the blood and out of the body via urine and perspiration. In short, fat and toxins literally spill out of your body :-)
reduce cellulite and improve skin tone
Far infrared heat helps develop the body’s capillary network, which carries vital oxygen and nutrients to the skin, essential for a beautiful, youthful, glowing complexion. Regular sessions also firm and improve skin tone and elasticity and help remove dead skin cells. And as for cellulite, that bain of our lives which is actually a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes trapped in pockets below the skin; far infrared to the rescue again, because profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body.
remedial warmth to relieve pain, naturally
By penetrating deep into and heating muscle tissue, the remedial warmth of infrared energy dilates peripheral blood vessels, reduces the lactic acid that causes muscle fatigue and joint stiffness and considerably eases the aches and pains we experience due to conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. There is also evidence that when used 24 – 48 hours post-injury, far infrared energy can reduce the time it takes for your body to heal sprains and strains.
fire up your metabolism
We all know that the sun’s rays are made up of both visible and invisible light, with the colours of the rainbow depicting the visible light spectrum, and both UV rays and infrared rays representing the invisible. Whilst most of us are careful not to overexpose ourselves to UV (just long enough for Vitamin D absorption), infrared rays, by contrast, are extremely beneficial because they’re absorbed into the body through the skin and have a direct and positive influence on the functioning of cells. So far infrared fires up your cellular metabolism to give your internal engine a boost or ‘spark’. In essence, absorbed FIR energy improves overall cellular performance – the whole metabolic process perking up everything from better enzyme production to the elimination of waste bi-products and toxins. Moreover, successive and regular sessions improve your health from the inside out and ensure that your body is continually in a state of self-repair.
