What is infrared sauna therapy?

Infrared sauna therapy is a type of sauna that uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat. This differs from traditional saunas, which heat the body indirectly via air or steam. Infrared saunas use infrared radiation to directly heat the body’s tissues.

The effectiveness of the infrared sauna is achieved by its deep penetrating heat mechanism. The therapy is designed to heat your body directly without warming the air around you. Regular saunas are usually 150°F to 195°F (65°C to 90°C), but these are generally between 120°F and 150°F (50°C to 65°C). This means that people find them more relaxing than the traditional saunas.

What are the benefits of infrared sauna therapy?

Saunas are popular because they produce physiological responses like those experienced during moderate exercise, including profuse perspiration and an elevated heart rate. These benefits are attained in a far more comfortable temperature range with an infrared sauna. This makes the therapy viable for many who find traditional saunas too intense. But does that mean it’s good for you? The answer is Yes and here’s why:

The benefits of infrared sauna revolve around the 3 Rs: Relieve, Revive, Renew! The benefits include:

  1. Detoxification: Infrared saunas can promote detoxification by inducing sweating, which may help the body eliminate toxins and heavy metals.
  2. Relaxation and Stress Reduction: Infrared sauna therapy is believed to promote relaxation by helping to reduce muscle tension and stress. The heat can induce a calming effect, and some people find the experience meditative.
  3. Pain Relief: Infrared heat is thought to penetrate tissues, potentially providing relief from muscle and joint pain. It may be beneficial for individuals with conditions such as arthritis or muscle soreness.
  4. Improved Circulation: The heat from infrared saunas can increase blood flow and improve circulation. This may have cardiovascular benefits and contribute to overall cardiovascular health.
  5. Weight Management: While not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, the increased heart rate and sweating during infrared sauna sessions may contribute to calorie burning and weight loss.
  6. Hormonal Balance:  Infrared sauna therapy may help with hormonal balance by reducing stress and promoting relaxation. Stress management can be particularly important for women, as stress may influence hormonal fluctuations.
  7. Menstrual Pain Relief: Infrared heat’s ability to penetrate tissues and provide relief from muscle and joint pain may be beneficial for women experiencing menstrual cramps.
  8. Skin Health: Infrared sauna therapy is believed to promote healthy skin by cleansing pores, improving circulation, and promoting a radiant complexion.

Types of Infrared Sauna Therapy:

  • Far-Infrared (FIR) Saunas: Far-infrared light goes through the skin and heats the body from the inside out in these saunas. For most people, far infrared sauna’s heat is not as intense as other types, making them more relaxing.
  • Near Infrared (NIR) Sauna: This infrared therapy uses near-infrared wavelengths to help the body heal. It is also known as photobiomodulation treatment or PBMT. Sources in the visible light and near-infrared range are used in this treatment to help heal wounds and grow new tissue.
  • Full-spectrum Sauna: Full-spectrum saunas use far, near, and mid-infrared infrared light, among others, to give you a more comprehensive range of possible health benefits. These saunas are sometimes used to target specific therapeutic goals.

Here’s what typically happens during an infrared sauna therapy session:

  1. Preparation: You’ll likely be asked to change into loose-fitting, comfortable clothing or a towel. Some people may choose to wear a bathing suit.
  2. Session Duration: Infrared sauna sessions typically last between 20 to 45 minutes. The duration may vary depending on your tolerance and the specific recommendations of the facility.
  3. Infrared Heat Exposure: The infrared heaters in the sauna emit infrared light, which penetrates the skin and heats the body directly. This can create a sensation of warmth, but the air around you remains relatively cool compared to traditional saunas.
  4. Sweating: As your body temperature rises, you’ll start to sweat. Sweating is one of the primary ways your body eliminates toxins and metabolic waste products. It can also contribute to increased circulation.
  5. Relaxation: Many people find infrared sauna therapy sessions to be relaxing. The gentle heat and absence of extremely high temperatures can make it a more comfortable experience for those who find traditional saunas too hot.
  6. Hydration: It’s important to stay hydrated before, during, and after an infrared sauna session. Drink plenty of water to replace fluids lost through sweating.
  7. Cooling Down: After your session, it’s essential to cool down gradually. Some people choose to take a cool shower, while others may prefer to rest and cool down naturally.
  8. Regular Sessions: The treatment will show effective results if you use it more often. Aim for two to three sessions a week to see your health improve.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is infrared sauna therapy, and how does it differ from traditional saunas?

Infrared sauna therapy utilizes infrared light to heat the body directly, as opposed to traditional saunas that heat the surrounding air. Infrared saunas penetrate the skin more deeply, promoting a more intense sweat at lower temperatures. This can result in a more comfortable and tolerable experience for individuals sensitive to high heat.

 What are the potential health benefits of infrared sauna therapy?

Infrared sauna therapy is believed to offer various health benefits, including improved circulation, relaxation, and detoxification. The deep heat generated can help relax muscles, reduce stress, and contribute to better sleep. Additionally, some studies suggest that infrared saunas may aid in detoxifying the body by promoting the elimination of toxins through sweat.

Are there any specific conditions or individuals who should avoid infrared sauna therapy?

Individuals with certain health conditions, such as cardiovascular issues, pregnant women, and those with skin conditions, should consult with a healthcare professional before using an infrared sauna. It’s crucial to ensure that the therapy is safe for your individual health circumstances. In some cases, modifications to temperature and duration may be necessary.

How often should one use an infrared sauna for optimal benefits?

The frequency of infrared sauna sessions can vary based on individual health goals and tolerance. For general wellness, 2-3 sessions per week are commonly recommended. However, it’s essential to listen to your body and adjust the frequency accordingly. Beginners may start with shorter sessions and gradually increase the duration as they become accustomed to the therapy.

Can infrared sauna therapy aid in weight loss?

While infrared sauna therapy can contribute to temporary weight loss through the elimination of water weight via sweating, it is not a substitute for healthy diet and exercise. The primary benefits of infrared sauna use are often related to relaxation, improved circulation, and detoxification. While some individuals may experience a slight calorie burn during a session, it should not be considered a primary method for weight management. Always consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice on weight loss strategies.
