Infrared Sauna Treatments

Infrared sauna uses invisible light rays to heat your body from the inside out rather than heating the air around you in a traditional sauna. Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body because they are easily absorbed, stimulating the lymphatic, immune and cardiovascular systems through vibration of water molecules in the cells of the body to release toxins. As your body absorbs the infrared heat, this will increase your core body temperature inducing a deep and relaxing sweat.

Studies have shown that infrared sauna helps to detoxify the body and treat chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. It can also be used to help relieve symptoms of headaches, type 2 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.

Whether you’re a professional athlete, recreational racket player, or just aiming to make the high school varsity team, athletes at every level need their bodies to perform at an optimal level. Infrared sauna has been proven to help the body recover from strenuous workouts faster and can help relieve muscle soreness by increasing blood flow and circulation through the body.

FAQs

What is Infrared Sauna?

+-

The sun produces a combination of visible and invisible light. Invisible light rays, or infrared rays, are what makes the sun feel warm while visible light rays (or UV rays) are what makes the sun bright. Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body because they are easily absorbed, stimulating the lymphatic, immune and cardiovascular systems and can help vibrate water molecules in the cells of the body to release toxins. Infrared does all of this without any of the harmful rays of sunlight. As your body absorbs the infrared heat, this will increase your core body temperature inducing a deep and relaxing sweat. Using infrared sauna at lower temperatures means you can stay in longer and get more benefit.

How is Infrared Sauna different from a regular sauna?

+-

Infrared sauna uses invisible light rays to heat your body from the inside-out rather than heating the air around you in a traditional sauna. When you heat the body directly with only a small percentage of the heat heating the air, the result is a deeper sweat at a lower ambient air temperature. In fact, infrared saunas usually operate between 115° – 135°F, while traditional saunas can get up to 195°F. In an infrared sauna, the air temperature is less important than the quality of the infrared heat.

Why should I do Infrared Sauna?

+-

Some studies have shown that infrared sauna helps to detoxify the body and treat chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, dementia and Alzheimer's disease. It can also be used to help relieve symptoms of headaches, type 2 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.

Is there science behind the use of a sauna?

+-

Yes! According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of a sauna imparts a similar boost on the cardiovascular system as running. As you relax in the gentle infrared heat, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster. The Infrared waves will also raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. A fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.

Can anyone do Infrared Sauna?

+-

We welcome anyone to experience the benefits of an infrared sauna but there are a few contraindications to the use of an infrared sauna; Fever, Obesity, Diabetes, Any person using prescription medications that have adverse effects from infrared rays or cause drowsiness, Alcohol use before or during a session, Chronic Conditions/Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability To Sweat Or Perspire, Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To Bleeding, Pregnancy, High blood pressure, Implants, or Pacemakers/ Defibrillators

I am an athlete who has a very important game/match tomorrow, will the Infrared Sauna benefit me?

+-

Whether you’re a professional athlete, recreational racket player, or just aiming to make the high school varsity team, athletes at every level need their bodies to perform at an optimal level. Infrared sauna has been proven to help the body recover from strenuous workouts faster and can help relieve muscle soreness by increasing blood flow and circulation through the body.

What makes Performance Recovery Infrared Sauna different?

+-

At Performance, we are teachers and scholars who aim to educate each client about the importance of recovery and the benefits of Infrared Sauna to help achieve that.

What are the age and height requirements for the Infrared Sauna?

+-

While there is no set age or height requirement, we at Performance use heavy precaution when treating any patient that may be at a higher risk for overheating. Infrared sauna heats the core temperature of the patient and since adolescents and the elderly are more susceptible to over heating, their time should be limited and monitored closely.
