Infrared use induces sweating with 7x more constituents than heat alone. This accelerates your skin’s ability to cleanse. 15-20% of infrared sauna-induced sweat is composed of cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, heavy metals, sulfuric acid, and ammonia (as well as sodium and uric acid.)
Full spectrum infrared sauna-induced fever may stimulate the immune system to increase production of white blood cells and antibodies.
STRESS + TENSION RELIEF
The infrared cocoon sauna helps to relax your body and mind, reduce autonomic nervous stimulation and improve your heart rate variability (HRV).
It simulates a workout in the body just like when you exercise. Used regularly, it can help increase your metabolism. Users can burn 300- 600 calories in one fitness session ...OR even more...up to 900+ choosing the SHAPE session!
NIR has been shown to increase expression of α-SMA, collagen, fibronectin, and proteoglycan synthesis, sone of the main growth factors in tissue repair and in the development of fibrosis.
HEART + CIRCULATION
A key indicators of a healthy heart is heart rate variability (HRV). The more variability you have between heart beats, the better. Heat causes your blood vessels to dilate, this can improve circulation and decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease with repeated therapy.
One of the ways saunas may help protect your brain is by stimulating the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in much the same way aerobic exercise does, helping to bulk up grey matter through neurogenesis.
Stimulating blood circulation in your skin boosts your skin’s ability to produce collagen. Increased production of collagen in the skin will give more elasticity + reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
SUPPORTS KIDNEY FUNCTION
Releasing toxins through sweating can help by reducing the toxicity load put on your kidneys. This is an important component for patients that have severe body contradictions. Some doctors recommend infrared sauna use for their patients on dialysis.
