Healthy Effects of Sauna
The Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn up to 600 calories, and even though much of the initial weight loss may be water lost thru sweating (and may be regained once we rehydrate), the calories that were burned during the sauna session will result in weight loss.
By simply relaxing for 30-minutes, you can boost your overall daily calorie burn by up to 600 calories! But keep in mind, sauna use should be part of a sensible diet and exercise plan.
BREAK DOWN CELLULITE
Regular use of an infrared sauna can help break down cellulite. In fact, in Europe, this is a common use on an infrared sauna!
They are very effective because as our blood circulation increases, the penetrating infrared rays heat our body's tissues and internal organs. Cellulite will begin to breakdown, and the trapped toxins and fat are either swept into our bloodstream for removal or released through our sweat glands.
Arthritis, backaches, bursitis, headaches, joint stiffness and nearly any type of pain or stiffness associated with aging can all benefit from sauna use.
You may even be able to get your insurance company to pay for an infrared sauna if your doctor recommends it's use in your treatment!
Infrared saunas can also bring relief to conditions such as acne, psoriasis, scarring, and eczema. In addition, the healing time for cuts and burns is also reduced.
Leaving our skin with a "glowing" and youthful look. And as a bonus, it even improves the skin's elasticity!
