Infrared Saunas, Outdoor, Portable, Swedish Or German

Infrared Saunas, otherwise known as FIR, are sweeping the nation as the new best kept secret in personal care. In case you haven't heard, here's a little run down outlining what the infrared sauna is and what it can do for you.

What's An Infrared Sauna?
FIR energy is the natural energy that we get from the sun. All life on earth (except for those weird fish at the bottom of the ocean) relies on it for life. Basically FIR heats your body without warming the air that surrounds you. FIR energy travels deep into your tissue and increases circulation and nourishes damaged tissue.

While FIR comes from the sun, not all elements that come from the sun are good for you. Too much sunlight can damage the skin and tissue. FIR can warm you without the negative effects. Of course infrared is safe and man has utilized it for decades for everything from keeping hamburgers warm to curing cancer.

Benefits of Infrared Saunas
Traditional saunas aren't always the best way to relax. Sitting in a regular sauna chamber can heat up your body to unhealthy levels, and some people develop breathing problems as a result. Therefore, infrared saunas great for the whole family. They are also good for the power bill as you are only heating individual bodies, instead of entire rooms. In fact infrared is so safe, the coast guard uses it to warm up hypothermia victims.

Infrared saunas also have added safety features like timers and temperature caps. The length of session and temperature of your body is monitored carefully and if there are any anomalies the infrared sauna will shut itself off immediately.

The infrared sauna can also alleviate small day-to-day pains. By expanding your blood vessels and increasing circulation, more oxygen reaches every part of the body. This helps your body heal. It is especially good after a workout to repair damaged tissue.

The infrared saunas can also help manage weight loss. As your body heats up, its natural response is to try and cool down. This requires the burning of energy. This results in about a 300-calorie expenditure for each relaxing 30-minute session in the infrared sauna. Fat becomes water soluble at 110 degrees F, so as long as you reach this temp your body will begin burning fat as well.

Besides, all of this the sweat will help your skin. The time away from your daily stresses will help your mood and you'll leave so many of the days toxins behind. So really there is nothing to lose. Whether for exercise or relaxation the infrared sauna is the hot ticket.
