Self-Care does not take a vacation! The benefits of infrared sauna usage in the summer months are just as relevant as when it is cold outside. Benefits include those for your skin, for muscle recovery and for general detoxification.
Infrared Sauna Usage Aides in Sports Performance.
Infrared Sauna use can allow your body to adjust to the changing season …whether just for summer fun or athletes conditioning for competition in hotter climates. ReSet Personal Trainer Korin wrote about her sauna protocols for both injury recover and strength training. From Olympic Athletes to weekend pickle ball players, infrared can help:
- Loosen muscles and joints before a workout to increase flexibility.
- Increase tolerance for anaerobic activity.
- Eliminate harmful toxins that might hinder performance.
- Reduce lactic acid buildup in muscles.
- Boost blood circulation to promote muscle repair.
- Feel refreshed and reinvigorated even after the toughest workouts.
- Burn extra calories.
At ReSet, we have Sunlighten Sauna because it is the only infrared sauna on the market with Near, Mid and Far infrared waves, and has a proven 99-percent emissivity rating and low EMF—meaning it's both effective and safe.
Infrared Sauna Usage helps your skin
Seasonal changes in temperature and humidity levels, prompt us to dial in heat or air conditioning. Your skin must adapt, but depending on the changing environment, our skin may react with dryness, oiliness, inflammation, and changes in the ability to hydrate.
The Near Infrared wavelengths (NIR) use the science of photbiomodulation, penetrating the skin at an optimal depth to promote skin renewal, cell health and tissue growth. It heals the skin and helps fight the battle of aging by stimulating the body’s own cells.
Infrared Sauna Usage Helps Your Body Repair
Sore from unexpected softball game or hiking with kids? Infrared Sauna can help. Heat, in and of itself, is great for recovery, temporary pain relief and inflammation. However, infrared light, specifically Mid Infrared (MIR), heats the body from within and can penetrate further down into the joints, muscles and tissues increasing circulation and blood flow. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the site of the strain. The more red and white blood cells that can get delivered to the muscles, the quicker they rebuild.
Infrared Sauna Usage helps you detoxify from within
Far Infrared Wavelengths (FIR) reach deep into the body, where toxins are stored. Sweating in an infrared sauna can help to enhance the detox process. Infrared saunas raise core body temperature by two to three degrees. Which means instead of being heated from the outside in, infrared saunas heat you form the inside out, which in turn helps enhance the body’s natural detoxification process.
So many wonderful physical benefits along with relaxation, and stress and anxiety reduction. No matter what time of year, Infrared Sauna usage can be a wonderful component of your self-care regime.
