A recent purchase that I’ve made that I didn’t quite know whether it was smart or not was an infrared sauna. I opted to buy a 4 person infrared sauna so that I can share it with my husband as well as friends when they come over. It was an expensive purchase and after a few months of owning it, I am quite confident that it is a very nice investment towards your health.
While it can be very expensive, the benefits that you will enjoy when using an infrared sauna very much outweighs the price because there are tons of them and they really make you feel and look great.
Buying an infrared sauna can be a difficult process especially if you don’t know where to begin. This is totally normal because it’s not everyday that anyone will be buying an infrared sauna. However, if you are truly interested, you should definitely read some reviews as well as guides such as the one at choicesaunas.com so that you will be able to make an informed decision when it’s time to purchase.
Why Should You Buy an Infrared Sauna?
There are a lot of reasons as to why I recommend buying your own infrared sauna but to make it short, the benefits that you will enjoy can really make a difference in your quality of life. Here are some of the benefits that will definitely have an impact on your daily life.
Relaxation after a long day
Saunas are great when it comes to letting you relax after a long day. The stress hormone cortisol is regulated when you use an infrared sauna and this will help you relax and be stress free.
Muscle and Joint Pain Relief
Muscle and joint pain is very common and one of the ways to alleviate them fast is through the use of saunas. One of the reasons why we experience these pains is due to inflammation and since infrared saunas can promote better blood flow and increased circulation, the pain that you feel will be gone faster. Your muscles will be relaxed and joint pain will not be an issue any longer.
You will be exposed to heavy metals, toxins and other harmful substances everyday, no two ways about it. If you aren’t able to get rid of them, you will be prone to developing ailments and illnesses
When you use an infrared sauna, or any type of saunas really, you will sweat profusely and you will be able to get rid of these substances more efficiently.
Weight Loss and Maintenance
When you are inside the sauna, you will experience high temperatures and as a result, your heart rate will rise. This is very similar to when you are exercising and this allows you to burn calories while relaxing.
Improved Blood Circulation
Increased blood flow brings a lot of good benefits to the body. When your blood circulation improves, the body’s ability to heal itself is greatly enhanced.
If you are sure about buying an infrared sauna, and I recommend that you do, here are some tips that will make the sauna experience better.
Take everything off – clothes, jewelry, accessories and everything else. This is for safety reasons, if you are wearing clothes, you might overheat faster and if you are wearing any type of jewelry or accessories, the temperature inside the sauna room may cause them to heat up and actually cause burns to your skin.
Alternate hot and cold. By this, I mean you should cool down after the sauna and then once you’ve cooled down, return to the sauna. This gives the best results for your body when using the sauna.
Don’t stay in too long. If you stay in too long, you are at risk of overheating or getting dehydrated. Limit your sessions to a max of 15-20 mins per session
