The Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas
Your health and wellness are so important. With the right lifestyle changes, you can live an overall healthier and more balanced life. The installation of an infrared sauna is one investment in your health that you might want to consider. The infrared heat produced within a Jacuzzi® Sauna helps to warm your body from the inside out, helping to energize and heal your body on a deeper level. In fact, the regular use of an infrared sauna can result in a number of lasting health and lifestyle benefits.
WEIGHT LOSS & METABOLISM
Did you know that the regular use of a sauna can have a similar boost on your cardiovascular system as running? While you relax inside a sauna, your body is working hard to produce sweat, pump blood, and burn calories.
IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOST
While we all know it’s warm inside of a sauna, few realize that this higher temperature can actually help to assist your immune system. As your core body temperature, an artificial fever is induced, which can help to strengthen and accelerate your natural immune response.
MUSCLE PAIN RELIEF
As your circulation is improved, so is the production of positive endorphins. These endorphins can help to reduce pain and help you feel good, inside and out. Better circulation also means that more oxygen is reaching all parts of the body, including sore or tense muscles.
Many enjoy regular sauna use for improved circulation and detoxification through sweating. As you sweat inside an infrared sauna, toxins such as lead, mercury, nickel, nicotine, and alcohol, as well as other organic and inorganic compounds leave the body.
STRESS AND FATIGUE REDUCTION
Regular sauna use can help to ease feelings of stress, improve sleep patterns and boost your energy levels. Regular relaxation and pain relief can lead to reduced mental and physical tension. The more relaxed you are, the less stress you will carry with you, which can leave you feeling rested and ready for a full night of sleep.
EASE JOINT PAIN AND STIFFNESS
Infrared heat penetrates well beyond the skin and warms your body from the inside out. Improved circulation can help oxygen to reach the areas of your body that need it most, helping to ease joint pain and stiffness. This also helps to improve the natural production of endorphins, helping you to feel even better.
CELLULITE AND SKIN
Infrared saunas can do wonders for your skin. Not only can it help to improve the appearance of cellulite through a boost in metabolism, but it can also help to brighten your skin overall. As you sweat, dead skin cells are carried off, leaving the skin clean, glowing and feeling much better.
Weight Loss and Healthy Eating
Maintaining a healthy weight begins with living a healthy lifestyle. While the combination of a healthy diet and regular exercise are encouraged for losing and maintaining a healthy weight, there are other things that you can do to create more effective and lasting results. By spending as little as 10 to 20 minutes a day relaxing in an infrared sauna, you can experience many health benefits, including weight loss.

We have a wide selection of Jacuzzi® Saunas on display, ready to use and explore.
Using an infrared sauna can help to combat stress. What many aren’t aware of, is that stress and weight gain are closely linked. High stress levels can be linked to weight gain, as well as the inability to lose weight. Especially weight that is held in the mid section and hips. Using an infrared sauna in combination with other healthy lifestyle changes, such as eating a well-balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and regular exercise, can help you to lose excess weight and maintain a healthy weight long term.
Maintaining a healthy weight can contribute to your overall health. Losing excess weight can reduce your risk of many health conditions, including but not limited to certain cancers, diabetes, heart disease and stroke, hypertension, insomnia, and muscle/joint problems. While using a sauna can result in a number of health benefits, losing weight in combination can help you achieve an even better state of health.

This is due to the additional weight that is put on joints and muscles, leading to tension and sometimes various health conditions that can affect physical and mental health. As you begin to lose weight with help from your sauna, your body will have less weight put on muscles and joints, resulting in more flexibility, mobility and less pain. Not to mention that infrared heat from a sauna can warm your body from the inside out, helping to manage feelings of physical pain, making the benefits stretch even further.
