Healthy Living Made Easy

Do you want to be proactive about your wellbeing but don’t have the time or energy for extensive workouts and endless hours in the kitchen? Infrared heat treatments might just be what you’ve been looking for, to add a little bit of health and relaxation to your daily routine.

Of course, a balanced diet and physical activities are indispensable for a healthy lifestyle, but both measures require time, effort, and dedication. Picture yourself coming home after a long, busy day. All you want to do is get comfortable and unwind. How would you feel if we were to tell you that you can do just that and build up your natural immunity, all at the same time?

Well, we have great news for you! There is an easy, calming and luxurious way to improve your health.

Warming Up Your (Immunity) Engine

Imagine being outside on a cloudy day: The grey sky cracks open, the sun hits your face and you can feel the gentle warmth on your skin. This delightful sensation is caused by infrared light. Far infrared rays heat your body directly rather than heating the air around you, and allow for deep penetration of the tissue at low temperatures, making you feel happy and relaxed.

The same soothing effect can be achieved through infrared sauna treatments, by creating a warm, pleasant environment to relax in. This promotes the release of feel-good neurotransmitters such as dopamine and beta-endorphins, which can ease tensions in both your body and mind.

While “being relaxed” might sound trivial, it actually is a key component to physical and mental health. Think of your body as a machine: If your limbs, organs and skeleton were the physical parts your machine is built of, a calmed state of mind would be the oil that keeps the whole system running smoothly.

Calm Your Mind And The Body Will Follow

It may sound simple, but the key is often to just stress less. Hectic schedules are known to take a major toll on our bodies. Insomnia, headaches, low energy, aches and pains, as well as regular colds and infections, are physical indicators of stress. It is your body's way of telling you that it’s time to slow down and try investing in your wellbeing.

Infrared treatment is a versatile therapeutic measure for calming down, which you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. Consider it your private spa experience, your secret weapon to combat stress, alleviate physical and mental pains, or for purely relaxation and pleasure purposes. 20 to 45 minutes – a typical duration of a session – every few days will go a long way in helping you disconnect from your busy schedule and relax, both physically and mentally.

Boosting your Natural Immunity

Due to its positive effects, infrared radiation is fast becoming increasingly important in the medical field and wellness sector. One of its major benefits is the ability to strengthen your natural defenses – the immune system, which protects your body against viruses, bacteria, parasites and other invaders that can make you sick.

A strong immune system will protect you by creating a barrier to stop these foreign microorganisms from entering your organs. Should a harmful substance find its way into your body, your immune system will go into active “fight mode”, producing powerful cocktails of chemical and biological defenders, such as white blood cells, to swiftly deal with these unwanted invaders.

So how can you support your body’s natural defense system?

One of the easiest – and perhaps most comfortable – ways of building your natural immunity, are infrared saunas. The sauna’s deep heat excels at raising your temperature, inducing a mild, artificial fever. As the body works to fight the "fever", the immune system is strengthened. At the same time, the heat increases the blood circulation and stimulates the sweat glands, activating the body’s natural function to clean itself from the inside.

Regular sauna sweating also helps eliminate the various heavy metals and toxic chemicals that accumulate, through the years. Strengthening your immune system, and detoxifying your body through intense sweating, can go a long way in helping increase your overall health, wellness and resistance to disease.

Prevent Sickness Rather Than Treating It

The health benefits of infrared sauna treatments are numerous. You can treat existing conditions or, even better, build a powerful immune system which prevents any sickness in the first place, keeping health problems at bay. With a little tweak in your routine, you can improve your natural immunity, wind down, and protect your body against infections.

And the most convenient part? You can boost your immune system without having to leave the house. Just take off your work clothes (or any clothes), pour yourself a delicious smoothie, enjoy some well deserved downtime, and when ready, you can let your new infrared sauna do the rest.
