A FIR Sauna Is a Blanket of Warmth and Pleasure
I love the sun and just can’t get enough of it! As soon as the weather starts clearing up and the sun starts shining in its full splendour, you know where to find me – the long, golden, sandy beaches. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a tanning junky, it’s just that the warmth of sun’s rays soothes me like nothing else. With the increasing damage in the ozone layer, the sun has received a bad rep as the number one cause of skin cancer. The UV rays that it emits can be very dangerous if exposed to them for a prolonged period of time. However, there are also the beneficial infrared rays that make the sun effective in a number of ways, ranging from preventing diabetes to relieving aches and pains.
But sometimes when you need them the most, then it’s the most gloomiest of days or the middle of winter. Luckily, someone thought of a revolutionary idea. Why not harness all that positive infrared warmth in a compact form which people can use in the comfort of their own homes? And that’s how infrared saunas came to exist. I personally wouldn’t have been able to make it through this long and cold winter without my wonderful FIR sauna blanket of warmth. Wondering what makes it so great? Here are just some of its benefits.
Upon closer inspection, it has been found that the sweat caused by traditional saunas is around 97% water with mainly salt making up the rest. This means that normal saunas are not that effective when it comes to detoxifying the body. But far infrared saunas, on the other hand, are believed to be seven times more effective because the sweat caused by the infrared rays is composed of 20% toxins. The infrared rays penetrate skin deep and warm up the core of the body which causes cholesterol, heavy metals, sulfuric acid, ammonia and sodium to be pushed out to the surface. Heating up the body on the inside also strengthens the immune system and speeds up the biochemical processes in the cells.
I personally, cannot stand the blistering heat produced by saunas and do not at all understand how some people find this relaxing. But the FIR sauna warms up your body gradually without making you uncomfortable. These rays are part of the sun’s spectrum so the feeling when slipping into a FIR sauna blanket is similar to the one when basking on a nice tropical beach. Infrared heat is therapeutically gentle and found to improve sleep and fight off insomnia.
Infrared rays are known for treating chronic pain. Because infrared heat penetrates skin, tissue and muscle to reach as far as the joints and bones, it’s incredibly effective in treating anything from minor aches to chronic pain like fibromyalgia. Chiropractors and pain treatment professionals all use the infrared technology in their treatments, but constantly undergoing such treatments is not convenient for everyone who has a problem. Having an infrared sauna at your disposal at any time, you can stop the pain immediately after it shows its first signs.
