benefits of infrared sauna therapy

As you might know, sweating is a great way to burn calories and rid your body of unwanted toxins. But how do you sweat when you’re injured, or unable to exercise?

I like to sweat in an infrared sauna. Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. The benefits don’t stop there. With infrared sauna technology, you can also lose weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation and purify your skin.

At Beaches Healing we offer the latest technology in Infrared Therapy. Detox with your body's own miraculous and natural physical response to heat: perspiration! Triggered by our state-of-the-art Far Infrared carbon fibre heaters, our infrared sauna sends out heat from 30 to 60°C, to surround you with insistent heat therapy.

Infrared Dry Saunas work differently to Conventional Steam Saunas in that the body can eliminate more toxins and heavy metals due to the advanced Solar Carbon heating technology. Conventional humid steam saunas force the body to perspire eliminating 97% water and 3% toxicity, but our gentle Infrared sauna penetrates 3-4cm into the body’s tissue and of what is eliminated 80% is water and 20% is toxicity, allowing for a more productive and comfortable sweat.

Multiple Health Benefits:


Sweating is the body's natural process to remove toxins and nasty chemicals from the body. Infrared rays gently heat the body, increasing the core temperate and creating a deep reaction from within your body's cells to assist the detoxification process.


Assist your weight loss program by releasing bloating and water weight. Body fat becomes water-soluble at 42°C and leaves your body, along with the toxins. As your body attempts to cool itself down, it also increases your heart and metabolic rate making you burn more calories. A number of studies have shown that you can burn up to 700 calories per session.


Near infrared has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your skin. Sweating improves blood circulation as well as skin elasticity, tone, texture and firmness. It also helps unblock pores and reduce blemishes. A weekly infrared sauna session will leave you glowing and the more you sweat the better you'll feel.


Regular sweating allows your body to detoxify nasty chemicals, pollutants and dirt lodged within the dermal layer. Infrared heat increases the blood flow and brings essential nutrients to the surface of the skin, allowing your body to naturally glow. Regular infrared sauna sessions have also been shown to improve skin conditions such as cellulite, acne, psoriasis and dermatitis.


When you use an infrared sauna it increases the core temperature of your body. Bacteria and viruses can't survive under certain temperatures and this increased heating helps your body fight these off, giving your immune system that added boost. Infrared heat is proven to expand blood vessels thus improves your blood circulation, which works to strengthen the body's alkalinity and immune system.


Loosen up and relax! Reduce or completely relieve long standing pain and swelling. Your tight muscles, stubborn joints and nervous system will all happily surrender. Take charge of your aching body and soothe away muscle pain and joint creaking. You'll get the results of an intense workout without the work, as much as if you went on a nine-kilometre run in just 20 minutes. Infrared saunas increase circulation, which encourages healing blood flow to trouble areas.


One of the biggest benefits of an infrared sauna is relaxation and the chance to de-stress. Balance your autonomic nervous system to enhance parasympathetic activity (rest and digest), which is essential for healing. An infrared sauna session can not only help you unwind but it also decreases the production of cortisol, the main hormone for stress in the body.
