Sauna Therapy 101

Sauna Therapy 101

Does sauna therapy actually work? The answer is yes! Did you know that sauna therapy helps to liberate toxins stored in one's tissues, strengthen the immune system, and facilitate circulation of lymph and blood. In fact, heated saunas have been used by many cultures for thousands of years. So how does it work and how much time is recommended to see results? Heating the body's core temperature by just a few degrees for at least 15 minutes can destroy or disable weak, heat sensitive cells that are infected with viruses, fungi, parasites, and more!

There are 4 types of saunas:

Traditional saunas are those heated by rocks or by wood burning stove or an electric coil.  

Far-Infrared saunas are heated by metallic or ceramic elements and emit a narrow spectrum of light called far-infrared.  There is no light given off by a far-infrared sauna, as there is with an infrared lamp sauna. 

Infrared lamp saunas use red heat lamps as their source of radiant heat. They give off infrared energy as well as visible light. 

Steam saunas are a traditional heated sauna, but water is added to increase humidity.
