INFRARED SAUNA TREATMENTS
Promote Weight Loss, Stress Relief, Help Heal Sprains, Strains, Muscle Injuries, Wound Healing, and Speed Up Cell Regeneration
According to The Doctor’s Prescription for Health Living, Sunlighten’s infrared sauna is one of the best treatments for sprains, strains, muscle spasms, and other injuries associated with sports because it works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation. When it comes to recovering from an injury or sprain, infrared sauna treatments together with physical therapy can be very effective.
“Regardless of the extent of the injury, someone who regularly uses this type of sauna will recover faster…It doesn’t add additional stress to the body or the injury. It actually works with the body to heal.” -Dr. Jeffrey Spencer – University of Southern California.
The American Institute of Stress, estimated that between 75 to 90% of visits to primary care physicians are related to stress problems. The more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands. There are countless physiological effects from long term stress exposure on the body. Increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system are just some of the of the side effects of stress.
Infrared Sauna use can be very beneficial in helping the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. Infrared saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use. The process of wrapping the whole body in soothing warmth may help you relieve stress, ease your muscles and help you relax in natural comfort with an invigorating deep tissue sweat that will have you feeling fully refreshed after every sauna session.
With all this in mind, working hand in hand with a Physical Therapist as well as using the Infrared Sauna treatment is a very effective way of helping your body recover from injuries, stress or post operative procedures.
