Can Infrared Therapy Treat Chronic Pain?

Ever wanted to go for a dip in the fountain of youth? You’re not alone! Maybe the thought was prompted by a pulled muscle or a neck strain, a reminder that you weren’t as young as you once were. Everyone has experienced some similar at some point, and as we age we are more susceptible to discomfort or pain.

In fact, recent medical industry reports reveal that 1 in 5 adult Americans experience chronic pain. This includes prolonged muscle pain, joint pain, tension, and nerve issues.

Good news! There’s a natural solution that doesn’t require a prescription, and the results are incredibly positive!

Infrared therapy has little to no side effects. It’s also non-invasive and can be enjoyed in the privacy of your own home. What could be more convenient?

If you’ve ever experienced chronic or prolonged pain, keep reading.

Arthritis And Infrared Therapy

Stiffness, swelling, and aching joints are common arthritis symptoms, a condition that affects up to 24% of U.S. adults. It’s also been the most frequently reported main cause of disability for nearly twenty years. We used to hear primarily of seniors who suffered from arthritis, but more and more it’s affecting the younger, working population. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), a severe and rarer version, is considered an autoimmune disorder and can be seriously debilitating.

No matter the level and intensity, arthritis can cause missed work and social activity and lower your quality of life. While exercises can be done to alleviate the pain, exercise can cause pain and inflammation. This vicious cycle is difficult to break to begin the healing process.

With infrared sauna therapy, arthritis sufferers can enjoy immediate relief in as little as 30 minutes a day. A study done specifically with RA patients resulted in decreased pain, along with a side bonus—reduced fatigue. Infrared helps is via far-infrared heat which penetrates the body deep enough to increase blood circulation. That in turn increases the oxygen delivered to muscles that have been depleted. In addition, the improved circulation helps flush out edema, trapped fluid in tissues that causes swelling and inflammation.

You can reap the benefits infrared has to offer in a half-size, Essential Lounge. Or, you can have a whole-body experience with an enclosed, full spectrum sauna that offers a range of infrared benefits.

Good-bye, Migraines

If you’ve ever had a headache, you know it can throw off your focus or functioning. For the migraine sufferer, this pain and tension can last days on end. And while there are holistic treatments like acupuncture and meditation, many who get migraines find those aren’t effective remedies.

Enter light therapy. The more scientific term is photobiomodulation or Chromotherapy, and it has been used to treat a variety of health issues. Light stimulation may sound like a terrible idea to a migraine sufferer who has acute light sensitivity.

However, Green light therapy provides proven migraine relief. It emits a lower dose of infrared that when administered, resulted in a success rate of 60% reduction in pain; that’s substantial! The study showed that “Green light therapy shortened the duration of headaches, and improved participants’ ability to fall and stay asleep, perform chores, exercise, and work.”

Health Mate offers light therapy in many of its infrared sauna models. See the other benefits of Chromotherapy—a great alternative to migraine medication without the serious side effects.

Treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

What used to be a misdiagnosed or overlooked health issue has recently been given more serious attention in the medical world. The symptoms? Extreme exhaustion, pain, and sleep disruptions. Women tend to suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome more than men. It can even include cold-like symptoms such as sore throat or headaches. No amount of sleep seems to help, and it often goes undiagnosed for months.

Additionally, there doesn’t seem to be a prescriptive treatment for this affliction, which can last years and even a lifetime.

Infrared therapy has helped with many of the typical symptoms, based on small studies conducted in more recently. It also benefits people with fibromyalgia, which shares some of the same symptoms as chronic fatigue. Doctors attribute both illnesses to what they term “compromised detoxification pathways”. This is where patients’ bodies aren’t properly flushing out toxins, particularly from heavy metals. They fully endorse infrared therapy as a solution.

Spending as little as 20-30 minutes in an infrared sauna lets you sweat just as much as you would during a fitness workout, but without exertion.

Detoxification using infrared saunas can be the key to fending off a range of illnesses and improving the immune system.

Muscle And Back Pain Relief

To ice or to heat? That is often the question when it comes to treating general muscle pain, spasms, and back injuries. Each method has its own merits and can be used alternately to relieve or reduce pain.

Ice packs are often recommended immediately after an injury to reduce inflammation. Heat wins out for stiffness, soreness, and joint pain that lasts over several days, weeks, or as a chronic condition. Since we know infrared heat increases blood flow, particularly far-infrared with its deeper penetration, the result is that muscles receive more oxygen and can recover quicker. In addition, infrared therapy can enhance flexibility and improve performance.

Overall, rest and relaxation can relieve sore and injured muscles. Including regular sessions in an infrared sauna will result in a speedier recovery so you can be back to lifting groceries—or weights—sooner rather than later.

Consider investing in a personal home sauna if you suffer from chronic pain. Learn about all of the health and wellness benefits that Health Mate infrared saunas can provide by taking our sauna quiz to find out which one suits your lifestyle best.

How Infrared Saunas Can Boost Your Immune System

Immune System Basics

We come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, yet one thing we all have in common is that we like pizza! That could be an urban myth. One thing that we for sure have in common is that we’re born with an internal germ warfare system—our immune system.

As children, we were shooed outside to “go play in the dirt” to build up our immune system, which apparently works! Yet we don’t really think much about our immune system until we’re ill.

Your immune system works in the background, fighting the good fight. Your white blood cells, called leukocytes, are key to warding off anything attacking your body or immune system. Anything that has been detected and tracked is caught in your lymph nodes, which is why having a healthy lymphatic system is so essential.

Overall, you want to develop a healthy, balanced lifestyle to keep your body from depleting its immune capabilities.

Here are a few key benefits of having a healthy immune system:

  • Quicker recovery from surgery or illness
  • Improved protection from viruses
  • Faster infection-fighting response
  • Lowered stress and anxiety
  • Sounder sleep

Maybe you’re already eating plenty of green, leafy vegetables, exercising, and sleeping well?  You can still get off balance while simultaneously being exposed to more toxins and pollution than we realize—daily. But let’s not discuss agricultural aggravators or industrial culprits that negatively affect our food and environment.

Let’s focus on how infrared saunas can help build your body’s ability to fight off what might ail it and keep you strong and healthy.

Let’s Talk About Sweat

Our body naturally cools itself and prevents us from overheating or fainting by sweating.

When you sit in an infrared sauna, you will naturally begin to sweat. Setting the temperature between 110- and 130-degrees Fahrenheit is a comfortable range that ensures you get the most from your sauna. First-time users may start at lower temps to get acclimated.

Once you’re inside, the wavelengths are going to penetrate your skin and cause your body temperature to rise. The most obvious and immediate result will be your skin producing extra moisture as it perspires.

What we don’t always realize is how our skin plays a role in our immune system. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases notes, “The skin is usually the first line of defense against microbes. Skin cells produce and secrete important antimicrobial proteins, and immune cells can be found in specific layers of skin.”

Many people use their infrared sauna for detoxification, which studies have found is a direct benefit of sauna therapy. This detox process, which happens through your sweat, can help eliminate some harmful heavy metals and other pollutants, like PCBs and BPAs, from your system. While your kidneys do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to detoxing your system, it’s one key benefit that comes from spending time in infrared heat.

Plus, it feels good once you’ve worked up a sweat, toweled or showered off, and cooled back down. Some equate the benefits of an infrared session to a good jog or run, which we don’t always have the luxury of doing, especially once the weather gets too chilly. However, you can burn calories as you sweat. Staying hydrated is also recommended before, after, or during a session.

Is Your Immune System Fighting Back?

As we get older, our immune system response has to work harder. Some attribute poor nutrition to reduced immunity response. Some experts have concluded there’s a reduction in T cells. News Medical Life Sciences defines them; T cells are a part of the immune system that focuses on eliminating specific foreign particles, antigens. As such, T cells play a critical part in immunity to foreign substances.”

Medical experts have long known that your immune system is triggered into action when your body heats to above normal temperatures. A fever, as long as it’s within a safe range, can be a good thing in keeping temperature-sensitive bacteria and viruses from multiplying. And, yes, this includes viruses like the widespread COVID-19.

An infrared sauna can produce deep enough heating via far-infrared wavelengths to mimic a fever but without the harm or resulting inflammation. This activates your body into producing an innate immune response, often with additional beneficial outcomes such as increased circulation, improved metabolism, and better cardiovascular health.

Some people have found infrared heat helps them heal faster after having an illness or surgery.  Since they may not be mobile enough to exercise vigorously, it’s an ideal solution for safe, no-impact recovery.

Start With Reducing Anxiety and Stress

Everyone deals with stress differently, and exercise and nutrition can play a big part in helping us manage it effectively. When not kept in check, stress and anxiety can wreak havoc on our immune system response.

A certain level of stress is healthy since we want to be able to respond to danger with our “fight or flight” system intact. Adrenaline produces cortisol, also called the stress hormone. However, we reduce our ability to fight illness when we have high blood pressure or too much cortisol in our system.

Stress can also inhibit digestion. And as many medical experts have reported, the digestive system is responsible for producing healthy bacteria and immune cells. In fact, according to a recent UCLA Health study, 70% of the immune system is in the gut.

So, what part of infrared therapy helps with stress?

Chromotherapy, known also as color therapy, is a method used to induce calm and tranquility. Near-infrared wavelengths when produced at the proper intensity and combined with certain color lighting can promote relaxation and improve your mood. There have been multiple studies done to corroborate this finding. In addition, mid-infrared wavelengths will relax the muscles and provide rejuvenation. Even the well-respected Mayo Clinic endorses infrared sauna therapy for relaxation.

Now you’re in the Know About Infrared and Immunity

While there is plenty of information about infrared therapy, we want to encourage you to take proper precautions based on your medical history, health, and research yourself.

Always be careful not to overtax or stress your body beyond what’s safe. Just like exercising, there’s a sweet spot on how much or how little time you should spend in your sauna. Keep your infrared sauna sessions to the 20–30-minute range for best results.

The ideal infrared sauna is one that combines all levels of infrared, meaning near-, mid- and far-infrared wavelengths. Together they provide the maximum benefits and ultimate outcome from an infrared sauna experience.

Health Mate calls it full-spectrum infrared. It combines our patented Tecoloy heaters with mid- and far-infrared waves, dual micron technology, along with chromotherapy, or near-infrared, panels. Our bestselling Enrich 2 and Restore models were designed with full-spectrum heating so you have the option of a more extensive level of therapy.

All of Health Mate’s infrared saunas are made with 100% solid, eco-friendly wood that is sustainably sourced and naturally anti-microbial.

Is owning a sauna safe - Health Mate Sauna blog article

3) Is it safe to use?

Yes! Infrared saunas naturally warm the body from within, penetrating your muscles and nerves. Our saunas have all been tested for ultra-low EMF, which means your radiation exposure is at a safe level. Since infrared saunas heat the body instead of just heating the air in the room, it’s a more relaxing experience. Follow directions, along with any recommended medical advice, to ensure the best outcome.

How much electricity does a sauna use - Health Mate Sauna blog article

4) How much electricity does it use?

Infrared saunas do not warm the air or generate steam as a traditional sauna does. In that way, infrared heat emits at a lower temperature and requires less electricity. Health Mate saunas typically require 120V and can use a standard outlet in any room. However, larger saunas sometimes require additional voltage. See our models for more details and specifications. 

How much space does a sauna need - Health Mate Sauna blog article

5) How much space is required?

Health Mate saunas are designed as small as a portable dome sauna and as large as a therapy lounge. They don’t require additional plumbing or refurbishing. Also, saunas can be placed on wood, tile, concrete, or carpet, basically, anywhere you have a corner or free spot in your living area. Even better, they are simple to assemble!

Sauna Detox Benefits - Health Mate Sauna blog article

6) Does an infrared sauna help you detox?

Your infrared sauna will inevitably cause your body to sweat. Sweating is the body’s natural process for regulating temperature and allows for a level of detox which takes some load off your liver function. Infrared sauna technology heats the body directly by using infrared heat and light. This raises the body’s temperature deep inside the tissues and organs and promotes a deeper level of detox, while also boosting your immune levels.

Do Saunas Help You Lose Weight?

There are many reasons to purchase a sauna, with one of the most sought-after benefits being weight loss. Eating healthy and being active is great for weight loss, however, over time it can become increasingly difficult to continue making progress. While weight loss is one of the more challenging health goals people face, there is an easy and doable solution that can assist you in your pursuit of better health through weight loss, purchasing an infrared sauna.

 

does an infrared sauna help you lose weight health mate

An infrared sauna is a great tool to use when it comes to your health. But does a sauna burn calories and really aid in weight loss? It’s estimated that there are anywhere from 200-600 calories burned in a sauna session that lasts 30 minutes or longer. Burning that many calories is equivalent to jogging or swimming for an hour. While jogging and swimming can be taxing on the body, sitting in an infrared sauna can be performed by anyone. To answer the question, do saunas help you lose weight? Absolutely, an infrared sauna is a great tool to incorporate into your weight loss plan.

 

“It’s estimated that there are anywhere from 200-600 calories burned in a sauna session that lasts 30 minutes or longer.”

 

One of the main reasons infrared sauna weight loss works is due to the mid and far-infrared light. As they are able to penetrate the skin and reach a deeper level of body tissue compared to a traditional sauna. A common misconception is that weight loss caused by an infrared sauna is temporary. However, what is really being observed is the quick loss and gain of “water weight”. Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, an obesity medicine physician with Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital states, “the magic number is 5% of your total body weight; that’s when we see clinically significant physiological changes.”

When searching for a sauna to aid in your weight loss journey, it’s important to factor in the quality of the materials, the heater, and who the company is. Many sauna companies use materials that contain toxins in the wood, heaters, and other components such as glue that your body will then absorb. While this sounds scary, it’s easy to navigate away from bad materials through simple and quick research on the brand. Health Mate, in particular, has been producing infrared saunas the longest out of all their competitors. Has a five-stage quality control system to ensure your sauna is up to Health Mate standards, and they only use the best materials that are toxic-free. Since 1979, Health Mate has been producing saunas and aiding in its customer’s pursuit of better health through weight loss as you can see here.

 

The magic number is 5% of your total body weight; that’s when we see clinically significant physiological changes.” ~ Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford

 

Another key topic to research when choosing an infrared sauna is the financing options they offer. As this will show how far your dollar can really go. Some infrared sauna brands offer little to no financing options and also don’t offer different sizing options of their saunas. This is another area where Health Mate is superior. With multiple sizing options and financing available, purchasing their infrared sauna is less of a towering financial commitment. You can also purchase exactly what you’d like, in the size that best suits your needs.

Overall, utilizing an infrared sauna on top of your daily health habits can certainly help you lose weight. Through increasing your metabolism, increasing your heart rate, and regulating your body’s stress and cortisol levels, an infrared sauna (Health Mate in particular) is an extremely wise investment.

Chromotherapy & Color Light Therapy Health Benefits

While colors can have an impact on our moods, performance, and even how we make purchases, Chromotherapy (or color light therapy) combined with infrared heat, can also promote healing in a variety of areas in the body and mind.

Poor mental health can cause poor physical health, and vice versa, so it’s important to make sure we find ways to promote wellness in both of these areas on a consistent basis. Chromotherapy with a sauna allows your body to achieve amazing health benefits in both the mind and body, healing you from the inside out. 

We’ll dive into what Chromotherapy is and the benefits of Chromotherapy using an infrared sauna by looking at the 6 different colors that are used in this holistic, alternative treatment. 

What is Chromotherapy? 

For centuries, humankind has explored the health benefits of chromotherapy, also referred to as color therapy, colorology, and color light therapy. This holistic alternative treatment uses light in a variety of colors to help heal the body’s energy levels, either by looking at a color or shining the light of the color on a specific area of the body. 

The essence of Chromotherapy is that the body and colors are connected and different colors can heal and improve different parts of the body. 

What Does Color Light Therapy Do?

Chromotherapy, or color light therapy, uses the light of colors on specific areas of the body to promote wellness from certain ailments. From killing off bacteria that causes acne, to stimulating the skin to reduce wrinkles, to helping alleviate SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) where our moods tend to be lower due to loss of light in the winter months, color light therapy provides a holistic and harmonious approach to healing our bodies and minds. 

Chromotherapy Colors and Meanings

If you didn’t know, Color Psychology is definitely real. Just like we might feel “gloomy” on a cloudy day with little to no sunlight, colors can also affect the way we feel. Think about how certain colors affect you in your daily life, especially how you feel when wearing or having certain colors in your home. 

There are different benefits for different colors when it comes to Chromotherapy – so let’s look at all 6 and what they can do for you!

 

color light therapy

 

Green light helps you fight the “winter” blues, or SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), when our moods are lowered due to lack of sunlight. To boost your mood, use Green to help you feel calm, refreshed, and feel grounded in nature. 

Blue light helps kill bacteria that produce acne and even helps relieve migraines. Blue can provide you a serenity within and even help you gain inspiration. 

Purple light aids in reducing anxiety and promoting tranquility. The soothing shades of Purple can help you find relaxation before bed or during a meditation session. 

Red light promotes the stimulation of skin cells to help reduce wrinkles. This bright and warm color gives you a sense of comfort, love, and even passion. 

Orange light promotes cheerfulness and mental clarity. With Orange, you can gain more energy, happiness, and focus. 

Yellow light promotes positivity and spirituality. Exuding brightness and vitality, yellow can ignite your energy and boost your optimism. 

 

Color Light Therapy with an Infrared Sauna

Infrared heat therapy has amazing benefits for healing the body, including healing chronic pain, promoting muscle recovery, and detoxing the body from harmful toxins. It also helps boost your cardiovascular, lymphatic, and immune systems that allow your body to continue functioning at its best. 

Health Mate Sauna’s Red LED light has been calibrated to produce the most beneficial near infrared at 780-940nm giving you the highest penetration available. Paired with our patented Tecoloy™ heater, Health Mate saunas deliver 360 degrees of dual wave heat with up to 40% deeper penetration than the leading carbon heater, has the fastest to temperature heat time, and is certified non-toxic.

Experiencing color light therapy with an infrared sauna allows you to make the most of your sauna sessions where your body can heal and detox while your mind can remain calm, focused, and energized. 

Chromotherapy for Overall Health

Using Color light therapy in your infrared sauna is a wonderful treatment for the body and mind. Whether it’s post-workout or your daily meditation session, taking some time to heal using infrared heat paired with chromotherapy can promote wellness physically and mentally that are crucial for your overall health.

Perfect Home Infrared Sauna: Improvement When You Want

Convenience. That’s what so many of us are looking for in so many different facets of our lives. Our phones and mobile devices allow us to connect to the people in our lives as well as the internet in ways that were science fiction just a few short years ago. You can listen to more different kinds of music and see more kinds of movies and TV shows with just a few presses of a button that you could ever before. In modern life, many of us want something when we want when we want it. We believe that you should have that same kind of convenience in an infrared sauna, too. That’s just one of the reasons that we’ve designed a perfect home infrared sauna that can truly fit in your home. 

Home Infrared Sauna: Truly Yours 

Sitting in the sauna at the gym can be great after a long workout. However, you usually aren’t sitting in there with just the sauna. There can be plenty of other people, in fact, there can be a lot of other people. Putting this gently, they may not be as dedicated to their hygiene and health as you might prefer. In a public sauna, they could be listening to their music or having a conversation, both at truly loud volumes. Moreover, you can control a lot of things, but you can’t control the schedule of your gym. They might be closed early in the morning, late at night, or even if they are a 24 hour facility, the sauna could be closed for any number of reasons. When you have an infrared sauna in your home, you don’t have to worry about any of this. 

perfect home infrared sauna

Your Sauna, Your Schedule 

When a sauna is in your home, it’s yours to do with as you please. Many of our customers get into their sauna first thing in the morning. Before they’ve even had their morning coffee, they go into our sauna and get a good sweat going to face the day. In fact, many of our customers have told us that going into their sauna has actually replaced their morning coffee. Of course, you don’t have to be a morning person to get plenty of use out of our saunas. So many of our customers use their saunas at night. You may be familiar with stepping into a sauna after a tough workout; now imagine getting into a sauna after a long day at work, or after a big meal. The truth is, when you have a sauna, you don’t need a reason to use it. You can just want to feel better. 

A Perfect Home Infrared Sauna for All Seasons 

Winter can be quite cold. Going out for a run in the cold (or really, just being out in the cold for a few minutes) can leave you quite chilly indeed. Instead of cranking up the heat in your home, you could step into our home infrared sauna for a moment and get warm fast. For more, check out our site or call (877) 595-3221.

A Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna: New Start to New Year

As of this writing, the New Year is just about here. Moving from 2019 to 2020, this is the time of the year when many of us make resolutions on how we can improve our health. For many, that means going to the gym, or perhaps changing their diet. One great way to feel better and live healthier in the New Year is to get a full spectrum infrared sauna. These saunas a simple, easy way to boost your health in the winter of 2020 as well as any other time of the year. 

A Genuine Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna 

One question we’re often asked is “what does ‘ a full spectrum infrared sauna’ mean?” Simply put, it means that, with our saunas, you’ll get a complete and full spectrum of infrared light. Our saunas have near infrared LED light, as well as Technology Mid Infrared and even Tecoloy Far Infrared. So, between “near,” “mid” and “far,” that’s a complete spectrum. Better still, you get all of that provided in the right way: through our patented Technology heaters that do not involve any food lamps whatsoever. 

Yes, Other Brands of Saunas Use Food Lamps 

Often, when we tell people that our full spectrum infrared sauna do not use food lamps, the common response isn’t “wow, that’s great,” but rather: “wait, other kinds of saunas use food lamps?” It may sound a bit silly, but that’s true. The same kinds of lamps that are used on hunks of meat, hot dogs, taquitos and the like are used in other brands of saunas to give you “healing” light. Of course, as you might imagine, there’s little “healing” about these lights. Different kinds of food don’t have to go to work in the morning, they aren’t trying to improve their health benefits, the food lamps just keep them warm. So, that’s exactly what these food lamps do to your body: they only make you hot, and as they aren’t designed with safety in mind, they can cause health hazards such as burning and worse. 

a full spectrum infrared sauna

Safe Heat, Close, but Not too Close 

We designed our Health Mate Saunas to make sure that our full spectrum infrared sauna gives our customers the kind of healing heat that they’re looking for, but without being too close. For example, the aforementioned food lamps utilized by other brands only really give you any benefits if you’re six to ten inches away from them. That’s too close to be to something too hot. As those food lamps can be over 400 degrees, you wouldn’t exactly want to be less than a foot from them. That’s why we make sure that you can sit a comfortable distance from our warm, healing heat. 

A Full Spectrum Saunas Available 

While our saunas have the patented Tecoloy technology, each of our saunas is different. We designed these saunas so that there’s a model which can fit into your life, lifestyle, and more. You can make a positive change today. Check out our saunas at our site or call (877) 595-3221.

Treat Yourself to a Health Mate Infrared Sauna

If you are one of those people that spend far more time and effort taking care of others instead of yourself, you should know that there is nothing wrong with treating yourself once in a while. A quality treat goes far beyond buying that book or ice cream cone that you may want. The benefits of items like that can be fleeting. You would like a treat that is there for you every day, offering you hours of relaxation and good health, the kind of thing that you rush home to each day. The idea of having a personal sauna in your home may not have crossed your mind before, but the advances and changes made in these products make having one a worthwhile investment. It is time for you to treat yourself right and get a Health Mate infrared sauna that you can use at home.

Why Choose Health Mate Infrared Sauna?

The saunas of the past relied only on the use of water and very hot rocks. Water was poured on the rocks to create steam, and that is what was used. It was not until we came along at Health Mate in 1979 that things really started to change. We were the first to incorporate infrared use into our saunas. The infrared heat our saunas provide goes well beyond the food lamps many other manufacturers use as their heat sources. Our infrared panels give you dual heat sources in the sauna and offer high-quality heat that is safe and effective.
