Why adding infrared therapy can help boost your New Years Resolution!
Many of us made new years resolutions this year and easily the most popular one is to lose weight, get into better shape and improve our overall health. So, while diet and exercise play a big part of that equation, another tool to add to your weight loss arsenal is infrared therapies.
Infrared therapy works by penetrating through your layers of skin to work on your subcutaneous tissues in your body and accelerate lymphatic drainage.
Here are the top 10 benefits of infrared therapies:
Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared therapies allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins, including heavy metals and the reduction of acidity within the body.
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the infrared therapies will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.
3. Pain Relief
If you suffer from muscle aches, joint pain or edema, infrared therapy can relieve these forms of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.
4. Weight Loss
The heat generated by an infrared therapies will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. An average hourly session burns roughly 1,200 calories.
5. Improved Circulation
As the heat from infrared therapy increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise as well as improve the elasticity of arterial walls.
6. Skin Purification
Infrared technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.
