Infrared Sauna For Relaxation & Stress Relief

Stress is can’t always be avoided. Plus, it comes in different forms and varying degrees, maybe as part of a fight or flight response, occasional work or life stress, or an ongoing chronic experience. Each version comes with its share of traits and symptoms.

The key is determining the source of our stress so we can start to manage or eliminate it.

The most common-sense way to begin relieving stress engaging in activity that promotes relaxation and tranquility. A calm environment calms the mind—like an infrared sauna.

An infrared sauna promotes serenity, acting like a mini getaway from the stressors of life. Once inside your sauna, you can sit in silence, read, listen to music, do stretches, or meditate. Afterwards, you feel a deep sense of relaxation and a more positive attitude that can last for hours and even lead to a better night’s sleep.

Health Mate saunas promote this amazing feeling of relaxation. To enhance the experience, you can even incorporate essential oils, such as lavender.

Let’s talk about how infrared works.

How An Infrared Sauna Helps Us Relax

From the moment we step into an infrared sauna, a series of chemical changes begin to occur within our body, including an increase in temperature. Our blood vessels dilate and our circulation increases. This stimulates the release of endorphins, the ‘feel-good’ chemical, along with increasing our heart rate.

As this is happening, unwanted toxins and lactic acid are carried away from our muscles, which then begin to loosen.

This is all due to the far-infrared light, a wavelength that penetrates the muscles deep within the body and helps to relieve and relax from the inside out.

“Perceived fatigue significantly decreased after therapy, although no significant reductions were observed during therapy. In addition, a negative mood, including anxiety, depression, and fatigue, and the performance status significantly improved after therapy.

Additionally, near-infrared or red light therapy is effective in reducing anxiety. According to a recent study, it can be instrumental in treating both anxiety and depression.
