Infrared Sauna Therapy Q&A

What is infrared sauna therapy?

Infrared saunas use the restorative power of far-infrared light to gently heat your body at a comfortable temperature — just 130-150°F, as compared to the uncomfortable 200°F of a traditional dry sauna. 

Far-infrared light falls on the opposite end of the light spectrum from UV light. Like UV light, you can’t see far-infrared light. Unlike UV light, however, far-infrared is safe and even promotes whole-body health.

You can relax and breathe normally throughout your treatment as your body heats up to therapeutic levels. Each infrared sauna therapy session at Transformation Wellness Center can last up to 30 minutes based on your unique needs.

Why should I consider infrared sauna therapy?

You should consider infrared sauna therapy if you’re looking for a holistic way to relieve stress and prevent stress-related health complications. Infrared sauna therapy can also help you lose weight to better manage chronic pain conditions and reduce your risk for obesity-related diseases.

The team at Transformation Wellness Center might recommend infrared sauna therapy as part of a detox program to remove heavy metals and environmental pollutants from your body. Detox sauna sessions can also relieve inflammation and treat immunologic dysfunction. 

To better understand your health needs and how infrared sauna therapy can help, the team offers a variety of in-office testing services to evaluate your hormone levels, immunologic function, and gut health. They may combine infrared sauna therapy with nutrition counseling and other services to optimize your overall health.

What are the benefits of infrared sauna therapy?

Infrared sauna therapy has some of the same benefits as exercise due to sweating and an increased heart rate. However, far-infrared light also triggers therapeutic effects at the cellular level. 

Some benefits you can expect from infrared sauna therapy are:

  • Pain relief
  • Skin detoxification
  • Relaxation
  • Improved circulation
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better sleep
  • Weight loss
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Less acne and fewer scars
  • Accelerated wound healing

Detoxifying with infrared light strengthens your immune system and optimizes biochemical processes.
