Reduces Stress and Fatigue
Perhaps the most immediate relief our infrared sauna offers is simple relaxation as it melts away the stresses and tension of "modern" life. Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of our SOLARUS Infrared Sauna gives you an overall massaging effect, soothing nerves and muscles. You'll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind.
Removes Wastes and Toxins
Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing stored toxins and wastes. Daily sweating will help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of highly toxic heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other compounds.
Improves the Imunne System
The infrared sauna's deep heat raises your inner body temperature, inducing an artificial fever (mild hyperthermia). Fever is the body's natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
Relieves Pain and Joint Stiffness
The deep heat of our infrared sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. It has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculoskeletal ailments. For athletes who push their body's to the limit, creating lactic acid build-up, which often results in stiffness and pain, the Infrared sauna offers sweet relief as it gently metabolizes and disperses the lactic acid. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, promoting greater flexibility and range of motion. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that come with aging is reduced or eliminated.
Burns Calories, Controls Weight and Reduces Cellulite
As you relax in the gentle heat, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, "in a single sauna session you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes". Saunas have traditionally been used by European beauticians to help eliminate cellulite. Since the radiant heat of the Infrared Sauna warms three times as deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.
The profuse sweating achieved in the infrared sauna carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws your skin's own natural nutrients to the surface. You will see improved tone, elasticity, texture, and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions, and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.
Increases Circulation and Strengthens Cardiovascular System
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, providing the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, thus boosting overall cardiovascular fitness.
