Infrared Sauna Q & A
What is an infrared sauna?
An infrared sauna uses light energy to generate heat. Full-spectrum infrared saunas differ from other types of saunas in that the light energy directly heats your body without heating the surrounding air. Infrared light energy quickly raises your body temperature and increases your heart rate, allowing you to sweat out toxins and boost your overall health.
The staff at Align Healing Center offers on-site full-spectrum infrared sauna therapy to address a number of health issues and improve your quality of life.
What conditions can infrared sauna therapy address?
Sauna therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for addressing or assisting with:
- Chronic pain
- Stress reduction
- Muscle relaxation
- Cardiovascular health
Infrared sauna therapy is also beneficial as an anti-aging treatment and for weight loss. Sauna therapy activates your cells to improve your body’s natural healing ability and boost your metabolism.
Your Align Healing Center provider can determine if infrared sauna therapy is right for you after an evaluation of your existing health and goals for treatment.
What can I expect during infrared sauna therapy?
The infrared sauna is similar to a tanning bed but doesn’t expose you to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. During treatment, you lie in the sauna bed and are surrounded by infrared light on all sides of your body.
Treatment may last as long as 30 minutes and you can expect to sweat throughout your therapy. There’s no pain involved, and many people feel completely relaxed throughout their session.
Following your session, you should drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration. Otherwise, you can return to your usual activities without downtime.
What are the benefits of infrared sauna therapy?
The goal of treatment with sauna therapy is to optimize your health by detoxifying your body of heavy metals and other contaminants that contribute to chronic illness and disease. Following a session of infrared sauna therapy, you may also enjoy benefits like:
- Better focus
- Mental clarity
- Reduced pain
- Increased energy
Because of the way infrared technology works, those who can’t tolerate the high heat of other types of saunas can successfully use infrared saunas to treat a number of health conditions.
Infrared sauna therapy can also be used in combination with chiropractic care, keeping your muscles relaxed and free from the buildup of harmful toxins.
