The Benefits of an Infrared Sauna

Infrared saunas have significant benefits when compared to traditional saunas for your health. Many people choose saunas to extend their workout or wellness journey. From detoxing, relaxing, calming anxiety, and weight loss, saunas are great additions to your lifestyle. Infrared saunas are heated by light compared to regular saunas, which use heat to warm the air. Infrared saunas heat the body directly from the lights rather than the warm air heating around your body. Many clients enjoy saunas because they provide reactions similar to those of exercise. Sweating and increased heart rate are experienced in saunas. In an infrared sauna, the heat is lower than in a traditional sauna, allowing clients to relax longer. Learn below the various other benefits of infrared saunas and extend your wellness journey today!

Four Amazing Benefits of Using An Infrared Sauna Regularly


When using an infrared sauna, clients can detox and cleanse their bodies. Sweating inside an infrared sauna is a great way to purge the body and remove any toxins of illness from the body. This includes heavy metals, chemicals, radioactive particles, and more. The heat of an infrared sauna raises the temperature in the body’s core much higher than a traditional sauna, making it excellent for detoxification. Clients feel healthier, happier, and ready to take on their next activity when the body is detoxed and cleansed. To use a sauna for detoxing, clients can stay in for at least 10-15 minutes every other day. If tolerable, lasting longer, and increasing your length every and usage to daily, clients will seek more significant results and added benefits of regular infrared sauna use. 

Improved Sleep

Another benefit of using an infrared sauna regularly is that it helps clients sleep better. Many clients are stressed, overworked, and live busy lifestyles. Only a few clients can get the quality and right amount of sleep their body needs. With regular use of an infrared sauna, clients notice an improved sleep pattern and quality of their sleep. An infrared sauna releases sweat and toxins from your body and causes your body to work hard in the process. As you leave the infrared sauna, you may notice your body feeling very relaxed and sometimes sleepy. The effects of an infrared sauna include a release of muscle tension throughout the body, which tells the brain that it is time to sleep. After using an infrared sauna for the day, you will notice you are less restless at night and can have a high-quality sleep when your head hits the pillow.

Promotes Weight Loss

The many benefits of infrared saunas correlate with weight loss in clients. Infrared saunas may be an option if you are struggling with your weight and are looking for a low-intensity activity to increase your heart rate and sweat. Infrared saunas are set at high temperatures that can cause your heart rate to increase and release large amounts of sweat as if you were working out. It may seem too good to be true, but using a sauna regularly can significantly improve your weight loss journey. A session inside an infrared sauna can burn up to 400 calories an hour. When burning calories inside the sauna, you are also getting a boost in your metabolism. Once the infrared sauna makes your body’s core temperature rise significantly, it will cool itself down, increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface. This allows clients not to overexert themselves while working out and enjoy similar weight loss effects with an infrared sauna.

Other Health Benefits

Infrared saunas can provide clients with various other health benefits when used regularly. Aside from relaxation, infrared saunas help clients relieve muscle and joint pain. An infrared sauna set at high temperatures allows the body to relax and reduce any tightness or pain in the body. It also helps clients who have arthritis feel less sore and stiff. Infrared saunas also help clients fight off illnesses and boost their immune systems. When sitting in an infrared sauna, the body’s core rises from the infrared heat and gives the body a similar reaction to having a fever. This helps the body fight off the “fake fever” and be prepared to take action in the future. There also may be positive benefits of reducing the risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other cognitive and mental health illnesses.
