Full-spectrum infrared saunas surpass the traditional sauna experience, improving your wellness through detoxification, sweat, and muscle tension alleviation. One 20-minute (or less) session has powerful effects on the body, more than many treatments provided by general practitioners. If you seek a pure form of whole-body relaxation with extra benefits, it is time to learn what you are missing without full-spectrum infrared saunas. This treatment can change your life.

What’s the Difference Between Traditional, Infrared, & Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas?

You may not yet have been introduced to full-spectrum infrared saunas as they still are a relatively new concept. Many people in Denver use them already and now we have them available here in Louisville. Don’t worry; we have all the information you need.

Traditional saunas work by heating the temperature of a room to encourage the body to perspire. Infrared saunas, on the other head, heat up the core temperature of the body to encourage detoxification through sweat.

Full-spectrum infrared saunas use wavelengths from the sun (minus the harmful UV rays) to cleanse the cells and purge toxins from the body. This is done by raising the body’s heat which in turn increases the heart rate and blood circulation.

Full spectrum infrared sauna is more therapeutic than other types because it is 95% to 99% efficient at directly heating the body rather than just heating the air. When the body sweats, it detoxifies at the cellular level where the majority of toxins live. Studies show infrared saunas are seven times more effective for detoxification than traditional saunas.

Using full spectrum infrared therapy allows users to enjoy all of the different wavelengths and the benefits they offer. This includes Near-infrared (NIR,) Mid-Infrared (MIR,) and Far Infrared (FI.) Traditional saunas use only one wavelength so users do not receive the full benefits possible from infrared technology.

  • Near-Infrared: The shortest wavelength, Near-Infrared is delivered at 880mm. Studies show that it promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth.
  • Mid-Infrared: This slightly stronger wavelength penetrates deep into the body’s soft tissue. It increases circulation and accelerates healing while also reducing inflammation.
  • Far Infrared: The strongest wavelength available, Far-Infrared penetrates at the cellular level of the skin. This purges toxins from the body through sweat/perspiration, resulting in better-looking skin and a host of additional benefits.

Traditional saunas use only one wavelength. Choosing a full-spectrum infrared sauna allows you to experience all three wavelengths in one session -and enjoy the added benefits that come with them. If you want to look and feel your best, a full-spectrum infrared sauna session has what you need to rid the body of harmful toxins. It will help to heal your body at the cellular level.

Is Infrared Sauna Therapy Safe?

So many medical procedures and medicines and treatments to pick from, and sometimes deciding which works safely and effectively is not easy. That is one worry you can avoid when using infrared saunas. It is safe for all beings. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours at a time without enduring any problems or horrible symptoms. It is a safe, effective, and worthwhile treatment for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Infrared is so safe that hospitals use it to heat the body temperature of newborn babies. That information is pretty encouraging, certainly a fact that makes you more confident in infrared sauna experiences.

You’ll certainly want to make the visits part of your routine. The endless benefits help improve your life from the inside out. Although we cannot list all the benefits of a full-spectrum infrared sauna, we’ve specially selected five of the best. If you want to know what else is in store with infrared saunas, schedule a visit. There is no better lesson than one learned firsthand!

1) Relaxation

Infrared sauna experiences provide the most exhilarating form of stress relief and relaxation possible. As your heart rate increases, your blood vessels dilate which improves blood circulation. You are more alert and less receptive to pain, in turn creating feelings of happiness and bliss.

Many people take their sauna experience to another level by adding meditation to their sauna sessions. Meditation coupled with the invigorating experience in a full spectrum infrared sauna soothes the body as well as the mind. You’ll even notice you sleep better at night because of the advanced state of relaxation offered after sauna visits.

2) Detoxification

Our body absorbs a lot of toxins. We put many toxins into our bodies. Others fill the air and are just there. When our body contains large amounts of toxins, it affects the way that we feel. It can even make us sick. Researchers have long known the body detoxifies toxins like heavy metals from the body through sweat.

Heat liberates toxins from fats, which are then flushed out by sweat and carried out through the liver, kidney, and GI tract. Full-spectrum infrared sauna sessions provide patients with one of the absolute most effective strategies of detoxification possible -and one of the fastest.

3) Weight Loss

Losing weight is difficult for many people. If you struggle to lose weight, an infrared sauna session can boost your efforts. Although an infrared sauna session should not be used as a sole means of weight loss, it certainly can boost your efforts when combined with exercise and a healthy diet.

One 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn 600 calories and help you drop as many as five pounds. Yes, just ONE infrared sauna session is powerful enough to take pounds off your body in less than an hour.

Sweating away the pounds is a safe weight loss strategy that many people have turned to over the years. Saunas increase the heart rate much like exercise which helps melt away the pounds.

4) Pain Reduction

Blood vessels relax and dilate while using an infrared sauna. This eases aches, pains, sore muscles and joints, tension, headaches, and other types of pain. Many people agree that infrared saunas alleviate pain as well as many prescription pain relievers.

A 2008 study showed that sauna sessions decrease pain, stiffness, and fatigue over the course of four weeks. People with chronic musculoskeletal diseases, including arthritis, benefit from the soothing heat and find infrared saunas an essential part of their well-being.

A 2019 study found infrared sauna sessions benefit lower back pain.

5) Anti-Aging Benefits

Wish you could turn back the hands of time and remove the impurities, wrinkles and fine lines, and other signs of aging from your skin? Until a magic pill performs this trick, the infrared sauna is truly the next best thing.

The infrared sauna session opens the pores, removes toxins, and detoxifies the skin, resulting in fantastic skin at any age. You’ll notice tighter, firmer skin that’s soft and free of blemishes after a few infrared sauna sessions.
