Regenerative Health Clinic employs infrared sauna (IR Sauna) as a method of detoxification to eliminate environmental chemicals and release heavy metals like mercury and lead.

6 Benefits of Infrared Sauna

1. Detoxification

Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. Our body naturally rids itself of toxins in several ways: through our kidneys, bowels, and through our skin when we sweat. Working up a sweat can be done through vigorous exercise or through Bikram-style yoga, but it can also be done in a less taxing way – with a treatment in an infrared sauna.

2. Sweat it Out: Stress and Tension

IR Saunas help to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

3. Lose Weight

The benefits don’t stop there. With infrared sauna technology, you can also lose weight. An infrared sauna causes your core temperature to increase, which also lead to an increased heart rate similar to the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss.

4. Improve Circulation

In addition to its detoxifying and calorie-burning benefits, infrared saunas are also helpful for individuals with circulation issues. As the heat from the sauna increases your core body temperature, your circulation levels will also increase.

5. Relieve Pain and Joint Inflammation

Consistent infrared sauna treatments can stimulate blood flow throughout the body, improve muscle recovery after exercise, and may reduce joint inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.

6. Improve Complexion

As an added benefit, many people report clearer, healthier looking skin after their infrared sauna therapy. It helps purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.

Infrared Sauna: How it Works

An infrared sauna is different than the traditional dry heat sauna. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which then warms your body. An infrared sauna uses infrared spectrum light waves to heat your body directly without warming the air around you. The reaction to the infrared heat results in profuse sweating and an increased heart rate, similar to performing moderate exercise – and infrared saunas produce these results at much lower temperatures than a traditional sauna, making it accessible to people who can’t tolerate the intense heat of a regular sauna.

Please always consult a health practitioner before using IR sauna
