What Is Our Far Infrared Sauna?

Hey guys! It’s Joey, one of the massage therapists here at Living Well Balanced. I wanted to share some information on our Far Infrared Sauna, starting with, what is it?

Simply put, the Infrared Sauna produces an endothermic heat within your body. That means the heat is being produced from inside your body at the cellular level. Essentially, you are activating the cells in your body to mimic physical activity, as if you were to do cardio at the gym, only instead of running to burn calories, you get to sit back, relax and sweat the calories out instead!

Infrared light works by activating the water molecules inside your cells, causing them to vibrate. When they begin to vibrate this means they become very active, and when your body is active that’s when healing begins to happen. When things are stagnant, especially for long periods of time, that is when dysfunction and disease start to set in.

The pulsation of resonating water in the molecules causes an increase in core temperature, which mobilizes the lymphatic system. This dilates the capillaries and increases the pH within the body by reducing acidity, which then further facilitates the removal of toxins from the body.

These dynamics add up to amazing health benefits, such as:

  • Relief from chronic pain and arthritis
  • Improved circulation and cardiovascular fitness
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Boosts the body’s metabolism
  • Detoxifies and cleanses
  • Relaxes the muscles in the body

But, if you want to really feel your best, we encourage you to try Contrast Therapy by pairing a session in our Cryotherapy chamber with a session in our Infrared Sauna. The use of extreme cold to extreme heat causes a contraction effect in your blood and lymph vessels and is the perfect way to reset your body and accelerate you towards your fitness goals!
