Detoxification. Sweating is the natural way for the body to heal and stay healthy. Infrared provides a person with a deep sweat and cleansing of the skin because it penetrates the about 1 – 2 inches and pushes the toxins out through the sweating process.
Skin Rejuvenation. Infrared body wraps and infrared saunas can actually help restore skin to a more youthful appearance. There was a study done by the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy that showed a significant difference in just 12 weeks with the reduction of wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet as well as a toning of the skin such as firmness, elasticity and clarity.
Pain Relief. Many people experience infrared heat works by penetrating joint, muscles and tissues, speeding up oxygen flow and promoting better circulation.
Relaxation and Stress Reduction. It has been studied that infrared helps the body to maintain healthy levels or cortisol. We have all heard about cortisol and how it the number one cause of belly fat. Cortisol is a hormone that is produced by the body and raises when we are stressed out and raises the heart rate and blood pressure leading to the deposit of excessive fat and weight in the midsection. So taking a 30 minute session 3 times a week can help you to relax and reduce the effects of excess cortisol.
