Health Benefits of Installing a Portable Infrared Sauna in Your Home

Health Benefits of Installing a Portable Infrared Sauna in Your Home

Posted by

For over 900 years, saunas have provided a variety of health benefits to people all over the world. All saunas work by heating the body, causing sweating and encouraging the release of toxins. 



Sauna technology has advanced considerably since the days of hot rocks in wooden cabins. The modern sauna uses infrared radiation to produce a heating effect that is superior to previous methods in a variety of ways. The key difference between an infrared sauna and a traditional sauna is that the body is heated without heating the surrounding air. This allows the body to shed heat more easily and makes the sauna more tolerable. It also allows for easier sweating and provides a superior release of toxins through the skin.

The Importance of Detoxification

One of the most important health benefits of a portable infrared sauna is the ability to stimulate detoxification. The skin is an organ of the body, and detoxification is among its many jobs. When a person sweats, the glands in the skin release toxins that are dissolved in the water being released. This is one of the benefits of moderate to intense exercise that stimulates sweating. A sauna is a more relaxing way to achieve a similar effect.

Detoxifying the body is extremely important for health. A modern person is subjected to an endless variety of toxins, perhaps more than any other population in history. Everything from processed foods and medications to air and water pollutants put toxins into the body. If they are not released, toxins build up in the body's blood and tissues and can lead to a variety of diseases and chronic conditions, most notably cancer. The body is constantly trying to release toxins, but often it cannot release toxins unless it can safely dissolve them in water and flush them out. Good hydration and sweating is one excellent way to encourage this release of toxins and preserve the body's natural healing abilities.

Relaxation and Pain

An infrared sauna allows the body to relax, balancing cortisol levels and relieving muscle tension. Relaxation is important for stress relief and blood pressure. Muscle relaxation may also help with muscle and nerve pain, especially in the neck, back and joints.

An infrared sauna portable unit allows a person to reap the many health benefits of sauna in his own home without the need for expensive remodeling or additions. Infrared saunas are clean and easy to install in a variety of locations.
