As we age, it becomes increasingly important to take care of our physical and mental health. Stress, weight gain, and chronic illness can take a toll on our bodies and leave us feeling run down. Fortunately, there are many ways to improve our health and well-being, and one of them is by using an infrared sauna. TriFit Wellness in Phoenix is proud to offer this service to our clients starting March 13th, and we’re excited to share the many powerful benefits of infrared sauna with you.
First, what is an Infrared Sauna?
An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses infrared light to heat the body directly, rather than heating the air around you. This means that the temperature in the sauna can be lower than in a traditional sauna, while still providing the same benefits. Infrared saunas emit wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the body. This can improve circulation, increase metabolism, and reduce stress.
One of the main benefits of using an infrared sauna is weight loss. When your body is exposed to the infrared light in the sauna, your core temperature increases, which can cause your body to work harder to maintain its normal temperature. This process is called thermogenesis, and it can help you burn calories and lose weight.
In addition, using an infrared sauna can also help reduce inflammation. This is a common known cause of weight gain. Inflammation in the body can cause insulin resistance, which can lead to weight gain and other health problems. By reducing inflammation, an infrared sauna can help improve insulin sensitivity, which can lead to weight loss and better overall health.
Another major benefit of using an infrared sauna is stress reduction. Stress is a common problem for many people, and it can have a negative impact on your physical and mental health. When you use an infrared sauna, your body releases endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood elevators. This can help reduce stress and improve your mood.
In addition, using an infrared sauna can also help improve sleep quality. We all knows this is essential for reducing stress. When you’re well-rested, you’re better able to handle the challenges of daily life. You are also less likely to feel overwhelmed or anxious.
Improved Skin Health
In addition to weight loss and stress reduction, using an infrared sauna can also improve your skin health. When your body is exposed to infrared light, it increases blood flow and oxygenation to the skin. This can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
Infrared light can also help reduce acne, psoriasis, and other skin conditions by killing the bacteria that cause these problems. This can lead to clearer, healthier skin that looks and feels great!
Improved Cardiovascular Health
Using an infrared sauna can also improve your cardiovascular health. When your body is exposed to the infrared light in the sauna, your heart rate increases, which can improve circulation and reduce blood pressure. This can help reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular problems.
In addition, using an infrared sauna can also help improve your cholesterol levels by increasing the production of good cholesterol (HDL) and reducing the production of bad cholesterol (LDL).
Finally, using an infrared sauna can help improve your overall wellness by boosting your immune system and reducing the risk of chronic illness. When your body is exposed to the infrared light in the sauna, it produces more white blood cells. This can help fight off infections and disease.
In addition, using an infrared sauna can also help reduce the risk of chronic conditions like diabetes, arthritis, and cancer by reducing inflammation and improving insulin sensitivity.
Infrared sauna therapy is an effective and natural way to improve your physical and mental health. TriFit Wellness in Phoenix is proud to offer this service to our clients, and we encourage you to try it!
