Oh yes the Far-Infrared Sauna is an Ageless Beauty’s best friend. Now that I have one and have been using it on a regular basis I would say that owning a Far-Infrared Sauna has been the single best bang for my beauty investment buck thus far.
Yes you can burn a ton of calories and lose weight with very little effort but there are even bigger and better life changing benefits that could literally extend your life.
A traditional sauna relies only on indirect heat, which the skin must absorb out of the surrounding air. The Far-Infrared Sauna produces the same Far-Infrared heat as the sun, which directly penetrates the body’s tissues to a depth of over 1 ½ inches. The energy output of a Far-Infrared Sauna is tuned to correspond so closely to the body’s own radiant energy that the body absorbs close to 93% of the infrared waves that reach the skin.
Far-Infrared is the “life force energy” that creates optimal health for all living things on this planet, including you.
- Lower your blood pressure
- Increase blood circulation
- Raise your metabolism
- Help you sleep better
- Lose weight
- Burn 600-800 calories
- Relieve joint stiffness
- Relieve menopausal symptoms
- Detox toxins
Far-infrared saunas are even being used to treat diseases such as cancer. You get the same benefits as having a fever which can be a really good thing. Remember a fever is a self defense mechanism your body uses to kill viruses, bacteria and anything else that could be causing illness. In fact if you are on the verge of getting sick, sitting in the Far-Infrared Sauna can help you sweat it out and skip getting sick all together.
As a newbie, start out at 125 degrees for 45 – 60 minutes. You may or may not sweat a lot your first couple of times. I didn’t really start to sweat until after I had had 3 sessions. Now I sweat a ton, which means I am getting rid of a lot of toxins.
Be sure to drink plenty of water before during and after you sit in the sauna. I take a jumbo glass of ice water in with me and sip on it the entire hour. You can gradually work your way up to 130 – 140 degrees. If at any time you are feeling overwhelmed lower the temperature or get out.
Once you are done you want to immediately take a cool shower to wash off the toxins you just sweated out and to close your pores.
Many spas and health clubs now have Far-Infrared Saunas or you can invest in one to have in your own home like I did. I did a lot of research on which brand to buy. I chose West Coast Saunas because they are very highly rated and have a lifetime guarantee.
My only regret is that I bought the smallest one they have, The Malibu, which is around $2,200. They call it a 2 person sauna, but it is only big enough for 2 people who do not mind dripping sweat all over each other. Something my own husband refuses to do.
I say splurge and spend the extra $500 and get The Newport. You will be so glad you did. If you don’t have room in your house you can do like I did and put it in your garage.
The Far-Infrared Sauna is so worth the investment. It is the ultimate way to detox and one of the single best things you can do to slow down the aging process and boost your overall health.
