I wanted to make a quick video for you guys and highlight some of the benefits of the infrared sauna. So before we get into that, I kinda want to explain the difference between a traditional sauna, a steam sauna and the infrared sauna.
So if we were at a steam sauna, that’s usually a lower degree. So that’s like a steam room. That’s gonna be around a hundred degrees with a hundred percent humidity. So it can feel very, very warm.
A traditional sauna, like the ones you put coals on, or you’ve probably seen, um, those usually go up to 195 degrees and those heat up by heating all the air in the entire sauna circulating around you. And then obviously you get some of the impact.
We have here is an infrared sauna, which actually heats you up directly. The panels are meant to heat the person up inside. So you’re getting direct heat. This sauna actually only goes up to 156 degrees, but I promise you, if you go in there, it’s gonna feel a lot warmer. So let’s talk about three of my favorite benefits. Some that I’m not gonna mention today are also of things like it’ll help you burn calories. It will give you de-stress, it does a lot of different things, especially if we start talking about the things light therapy can do, which ours does have all kinds of different lighting therapies.
But my three favorite things that this does is first:
(1) it detoxifies us. So a lot of times, um, just throughout life, we can get metals built up in our body, and this is great at reducing some of those heavy metals, sweating those things out.
(2) So it’s gonna detoxify you and that’s gonna make your skin feel better, which is my second favorite thing. It’ll give you that glowing skin, it can really smooth those of you that have had problems with acne. Even if it was a long time ago, you have that scarring. It can help a lot of this. It’s going to break up a lot of those things and gonna be sweating out all those toxins. It gives you nice, cleaner looking skin.
And then my favorite, actually my favorite, my number one reason I like to do this is for (3) recovery. What this is gonna do is it’s gonna keep your entire body up. It’s gonna relax some of those overly tight muscles. So they’ll be more pliable. You can stretch them out afterwards and increase your flexibility and mobility. So those are my three kinds of favorite things. The sauna does a whole lot more. I highly recommend you guys get in and try it if you have not, just like everything else, consistency of use is gonna enhance the benefits here. If you use it one time, you’re probably not gonna get the best benefits. You’ll get a good swipe on, and you’ll feel pretty good the day after a feeling of de-stress. But to get maximum benefits out of this, you wanna do this about two to three times a week and we don’t need to do it long. You could do it just for up to 30 minutes. And that is plenty. So that is all for today. I hope you guys learn something about the sauna. If you have any more questions specifically about the sauna, feel free to reach out to myself or the staff here at EarthFIT Lady’s Island. We’d love to answer those questions for you. That is all I have today for you guys and as always stay strong.
