Have you tried an infrared sauna in Adelaide yet? It's really cool, or rather it's not! Just like a traditional sauna it uses the power of heat to heal you - but doesn't get as hot and steamy. This makes it perfect for those who find traditional saunas too hot to handle.
Whereas a sauna uses heat and steam to work up a sweat and achieve results, the infrared sauna uses radiant heat. This means it turns light into heat to deeply penetrate our body tissue. It's important to remember that FIR - Far Infrared Radiant - is quite different to UV light. Both are present in the sun's rays but FIR won't damage your skin.
The fact that it contains FIR is beneficial for those suffering from vitamin D deficiency or Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Most people use the infrared sauna to detox. As the body heats up and produces sweat, it forces out toxins and kills bacteria and viruses. Amongst the toxins are some real nasties, like mercury and lead, all collected as we go about our everyday lives.
The knock-on effect of flushing the system like this is cleaner, brighter skin. Many people believe it to be the key to softer, younger-looking skin. Others say it is an excellent weight loss tool, as it boosts the metabolism and burns calories.
One thing we know for sure is that any type of sauna is brilliant for treating aches and pains. In this respect, the infrared sauna may even be superior, as it penetrates deeper into the muscle.
The list of benefits from taking a regular sauna is long. You'll look better, sleep better and definitely feel better. It will boost your circulation and your immune system, ward off illness and reduce your stress levels. All this happens as you just sit there and relax.
Enjoying an infrared sauna in Adelaide has to be one of the easiest and most effective treatments around.
