Beyond The Sweat
Infrared is synonymous with heat and sweating. While that’s the desired outcome, it provides a host of sauna benefits beyond that. Fortunately, since the invention of infrared saunas, we have discovered some valuable health benefits—and are still discovering many more. From pain management to cardiovascular health to improved skin, here’s where you’ll learn why Health Mate saunas lead the way to lasting well-being.
The Pressure is Off
High blood pressure is one of the most prevalent health issues among adults, primarily due to sedentary lifestyles, diet, general stress, and hypertension. Infrared therapy helps the body to better regulate blood pressure. It does this by increasing heart rate and providing what would be the equivalent of a moderately paced walk. In a sense, 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 of which our ancestors never dreamt of. This includes pesticides, toxic metals, PCBs in plastics, environmental pollution, and even GMOs (genetically modified organisms). So, combine those toxins with a poor diet and sedentary lifestyle and you’ve set yourself up for a potentially weakened immune system. Fortunately, 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, a significant sauna benefit.
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 sauna benefits people who might have an immunocompromised system or ongoing illness and who need extra help. A Health Mate infrared sauna’s intense heat will naturally induce an artificial fever, similar to what the body does when infection strikes. This helps trigger cell repair and enhance the body’s immune response.
Your body has an amazing ability to heal itself. Cuts, scrapes, bruising, and scars all eventually fade as time passes. As it turns out, infrared therapy can help expedite the healing process as a complement to your natural healing ability. Near-infrared promotes cell regeneration and reduces inflammation. Interestingly, mid- and far-infrared emissions provide additional healing by improving circulation and building immunity. While it may sound contrary that heat reduces inflammation, the combination of heat and light stimulation can be helpful over time.
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. So, imagine having those same benefits while relaxing in a comfy sauna! Infrared saunas heat your body directly, raising your core body temperature. In turn, 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 can improve skin’s appearance, since cleansed pores are a natural byproduct of sweating. The more hydrated you are the better! Plus, with the far infrared heat provided by our unique Tecoloy™ heaters, the removal of skin impurities increases along with the stimulation of collagen production. Ultimately, you’ll experience reduced acne, improved skin elasticity, and an overall brighter complexion.
Send Pain Packing
As a complement or alternative to some medications, try infrared heat therapy from a sauna. 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 discomforts. 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 heartbeat to increase. This is good news! Your blood delivers the oxygen you need, and the heart is in charge of keeping the flow steady. Understandably, 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 it. Sometimes stress manifests as headaches, muscle stiffness, or panic attacks. Yet, 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.
