Benefits of Infrared Deep Heat Therapy
Infrared deep heat therapy has many benefits including pain relief, detoxification, skin purification, athletic performance, cellulite clearance, and weight loss amongst others.
Infrared deep heat therapy provides pain relief for certain conditions including:
- Chronic lower back pain
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Spinal disorders
- Muscle tension
- Other muscular and skeletal ailments
- Old age stiffness and soreness
Infrared has more recently been used as a therapy for cancer.
Infrared deep heat therapy detoxifies the body by stimulating perspiration at a comfortable temperature to reduce the body's level of acid and waste residue such as toxins, cholesterol, sodium, alcohol, and heavy metals including lead, mercury, aluminium, cadmium, and fat soluble toxins.
Increased circulation to the skin helps promote a younger looking complexion. The high level of sweating achieved in an infrared cabin carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin, leaving the skin refreshed and rejuvenated. The infrared therapy improves skin tone, and elasticity, as well as improving the condition of acne, psoriasis, eczema, burns, cuts, and skin lesions.
Athletes, body builders, weight lifters, and those who work out heavily all benefit from infrared therapy. Using an infrared cabin before and after exercise to warm their muscles, they can prevent injuries and promote relaxation through decreased lactic acid levels.
Infrared deep heat therapy helps clear cellulite, the gel-like lumps of fat, water, and debris trapped in pockets beneath the skin. Many beauty specialists use infrared as part of their therapy program.
Your heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate all increase in an infrared cabin to improve your overall cardiovascular fitness. You can burn up to 900 calories in just one 30 minute session in an infrared cabin. This is equivalent to the number of calories a person normally burns up in 30 minutes of exercise. You lose weight and not just water with infrared therapy.
Passive Vascular Conditioning
The benefits of infrared deep heat therapy to blood vessels and the heart is similar to those of physical exercise. This means that infrared therapy is great for people who cannot condition their vascular system physically such as handicapped and paralyzed people and those with restrictive cardiovascular conditions such as Congestive Heart Failure and Hypertension.
