What You Didn’t Know About The Benefits Of An Infrared Sauna

What You Didn’t Know About The Benefits Of An Infrared Sauna

Posted by

If sovereignty like Megan Markle can take time out of her busy royal schedule for an infrared sauna session, you can too! Achieving that “Markle Sparkle” isn’t difficult at all if you have the right one person sauna in your home to help you do it. Read on further to find out the biggest health and beauty secret that royalty and celebrities can’t live without!

What’s The Difference Between Traditional And Infrared Saunas?

Don’t get it confused, Megan Markle uses an infrared sauna, not a traditional one. Therefore, before you can even ask, “how much does a sauna cost?”, you must understand the distinction between the two. There is a huge difference, so allow us to explain. Traditional saunas need water poured on heated stones to produce heat, whereas an infrared sauna uses infrared rays to heat the body directly from within. Some of the health benefits include immune system boost, improve cellulite appearance, better skin, stress and fatigue reduction, and of course total relaxation.

Home Infrared Saunas Are Convenient

If you are lucky enough to own a JNH Lifestyles modular, in home infrared sauna, then the biggest advantage is that you can use it whenever you want without limitations. Not adding this unique addition to your home forces you to leave your house to enjoy a sauna session at your local gym or spa. This not only means you have to get into your car to get there and waste a lot of time in traffic but also you have to abide by the specific working hours of the establishment, which in most cases don’t suit your timetable. On the contrary, if you are using a home sauna, you can stay in the comfort of your own residence when you are in the mood for a good sweat session. Also, you can use it whenever you want, even at one o’clock in the morning because who is going to stop you?

What Happens When You Purchase An Infrared Sauna?

When you finally decide on which home infrared sauna you would like, you will receive a kit that you can easily assemble. JNH Lifestyles’ modular cabin arrives in a way that makes set up time short and sweet. Also, the only requirements it needs is a couple of screwdrivers & close electrical outlet access. As soon as you have it assembled, plug your new infrared sauna in and let run for 60 minutes with the door closed. Then an additional 50 minutes with the door open. Wipe down the interior and exterior. After that let it start running for five minutes and get inside to begin sweating. Nowadays, infrared saunas are more energy-efficient compared to traditional saunas which could rack up your utility bills. Generally, infrared saunas use a third to a fifth of the amount of energy that it would take to operate a traditional sauna. We are talking about pennies per session (about twenty cents per hour, depending on the size of the sauna).

Is The Investment Worth It?

Besides health, you are probably weighing the benefits of using a sauna at home in your mind. It is very easy to say that the investment is worthwhile. Once you figured out a suitable area to place your sauna and have found one that suits your budget, you can enjoy a whole range of health benefits with such a simple home addition. At the end of the day, purchasing an infrared sauna will probably save you money in the long run since you don’t have to dish out for a 30-minute sauna session at your local gym or spa anymore. Also, you won’t spend further money or time getting to the sauna’s location.

What Exactly Are The Health Benefits To Expect?

There are a plethora of health benefits you can achieve if you use an infrared sauna regularly. However, let’s focus on those that we mentioned earlier and that is very apparent in Megan Markle!

Immune System Boost

If you have a busy schedule you can appreciate a boost in your immune system. Nobody has time to be sick and infrared sauna use is proven to strengthen your immune system as it helps you to train your body to adapt better to sudden and extreme temperature changes from indoor to outdoor environments. That way you don’t feel cold too quickly. Each time you sit in a sauna, you are reinforcing your body’s defense mechanisms. The sauna’s heat raises the body’s core temperature, creating an artificial fever. Then, the cells in your body react which makes your immune system stronger.

Improve Cellulite Appearance

It sounds too good to be true, but you can actually sweat away your cellulite! If you didn’t know already, cellulite is water and wastes that are trapped inside pockets under the skin, which causes that undesirable “orange peel” effect.

An infrared sauna session can help correct this condition since the body sweats profusely while in the unit to clear this unwanted waste from the body. Due to an infrared sauna’s ability to penetrate heat directly into the deeper skin tissues, cellulite can significantly be reduced compared to a session experience in a traditional sauna.

Better Skin

Having a regular infrared sauna sesh can leave you with glowing and smooth skin. Why? Well, do you ever notice how your skin looks after a workout? Need we say more? Exercise increases the blood flow and circulation, which attracts oxygen to the skin - and that is what to expect when you sit and unwind in an infrared sauna. Not only do you come out of your sauna looking bright and refreshed, but when you sweat your pores begin to open up. This gets rid of your skin’s impurities which can cause some nasty breakouts.

Stress And Fatigue Reduction

Fatigue or more commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is an illness that generally affects women between their mid-20s to mid-40s. People who suffer from CFS usually feel very tired and unwell. It isn’t considered a chronic condition and there are forms of treatment that help to reduce the symptoms.

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a long-term illness with a wide range of symptoms, the most common being extreme tiredness. Research now shows that consistent sauna usage can both effectively reduce the symptoms and improve the overall wellbeing of those affected. Studies have shown that the thermal heat therapy infrared saunas produce is an adequate method of treatment for CFS.

Overall, wouldn’t it be nice to relax like royalty in your very own home infrared sauna? Of course it would, and the best part is you don’t have to have blue blood or marry a prince to be able to. Contact JNH Lifestyles so one of our representatives can advise you on the most suitable infrared sauna for your home.
