Beyond The Sweat
Infrared saunas are synonymous with heat and sweating, and while that’s the desired outcome, there are sauna benefits that far surpass some heavy perspiration. Since the invention of infrared saunas, we have discovered what those benefits are—and many we’re still discovering. From pain management to cardiovascular health to improved skin, it’s amazing what health outcomes are possible with infrared therapy.
The Pressure is Off
High blood pressure is one of the most prevalent health issues among adults, mostly due to sedentary lifestyles, diet, and general stress and hypertension. Infrared therapy allows the body to better regulate blood pressure by increasing heart rate and providing what would be the equivalent of a moderately paced walk. In a sense, the far infrared heat therapy exercises your heart to lower your blood pressure.
Time To Detox
Your body is constantly trying to eliminate an arsenal of toxins, many that our ancestors never dreamt of; pesticides, toxic metals, PCBs in plastics, environmental pollution, and even GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Combine those toxins with a poor diet and sedentary lifestyle and you’ve set yourself up for a potentially weakened immune system. Health Mate infrared saunas help detox your body using our patented Tecoloy™ heaters. This heating technology increases toxin removal from 3% to a whopping 15% when compared to conventional saunas.
Fend Off Infection
While your built-in germ warfare system works around the clock, it can always use the boost that an infrared sauna provides. Infrared therapy especially benefits people who might have an immunocompromised system or ongoing illness and who need some added help. A Health Mate infrared sauna’s intense heat will naturally induce an artificial fever, similar to what the body does when infection strikes. Near-infrared light in particular helps trigger cell repair and enhance the body’s immune response.
Your body has this amazing ability to heal itself. Cuts, scrapes, bruising and scars all eventually fade as time passes, often with a little help from some antibacterial cream or stitches. Infrared therapy can help expedite the healing process as a complement to your natural healing ability. Near-infrared promotes cell regeneration and reduces inflammation. It sounds contrary, to use heat for inflammation, but the combination of heat and light stimulation actually works. Mid- and far-infrared emissions provide additional healing by improving circulation and building immunity.
Burn Those Calories
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of an infrared sauna provides the same cardiovascular outcomes as running. Imagine having those same benefits while relaxing in a comfy sauna! Infrared saunas heat your body directly, raising your core body temperature. This boosts your cardiovascular function and creates a fat-based sweat to help your body burn calories and kickstart weight loss. Your Health Mate sauna will revitalize your system without potential side effects caused by high-impact or exhausting workouts.
Beauty From Inside Out
European Beauty Specialists and medical professionals both confirm that infrared sauna therapy will improve skin’s appearance, since cleansed pores are a natural byproduct of sweating. The more hydrated you are the better! With the far infrared heat provided by our unique Tecoloy™ heaters, the removal of skin impurities increases along with the stimulation of collagen production. The result? Reduced acne, improved skin elasticity and an overall brighter complexion.
Send Pain Packing
Put the pills and medications aside and try infrared heat therapy from a sauna instead. One of the most convincing reasons to purchase a Health Mate is the natural pain relief provided by our full spectrum technology. With near-, mid- and far-infrared light and heat, you can enjoy relief from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sports injuries and other ongoing pain discomfort. It starts with just one 20–30-minute session and requires no exertion–just sit back and relax.
Pump Up The Beat
Your heart is one of the first organs, second only to your skin, to benefit from infrared therapy. The intense infrared heat penetrates your core enough to stimulate your circulation, causing your heart beat to increase. This is good news! Your blood delivers the oxygen you need, and the heart is in charge of keeping the flow steady. Poor cardiovascular health can cause issues such as poor digestion, stroke, blood clots and cramps, to name a few. Infrared therapy can help you avoid and prevent those issues.
Release The Tension
Stress, anxiety, tension…they can catch up to you without you realizing. Sometimes stress manifests as headaches, muscle stiffness and panic attacks, but all of that can be reduced or eliminated by making infrared sauna therapy a regular part of your lifestyle. The effects of infrared heat are far reaching, literally penetrating deep within your muscles to help you relax and unwind. Pairing your infrared session with some calming music on your Bluetooth device doesn’t hurt either! Breathe in and let the sauna do the rest.
