Top 5 Ways Infrared Sauna Use Help Battle the Winter

Winter brings a cauldron of issues both physical and mental. Infrared heat therapy can help you battle some of the common problems Winter blows in. Here are our top 5 ways our sauna sessions can help.

1. Dry, itchy skin

Increased sweating with the use of infrared heat therapy carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and clean. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface.

2. Arthritis pain

Time spent in an infrared sauna benefits patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. Infrared heat helps to minimize the stiffness, aches and soreness can be reduced or eliminated.

3. Depression

Our infrared therapy soothes your mind by surrounding you in warming relaxation. Our saunas are designed for maximum comfort, allowing you to not only loosen your body, but loosen your mind. Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction.

4. Colds and viruses

The deep heating from Sunlighten Sauna Pods will raise your core body temperature. How does this benefit the body? Increasing it's temperature is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.

5. Weight gain

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system as running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. This can help fight the winter bulge.
