Body Lounge is excited to now offer MPulse Infrared Sauna Therapy. Is is the only infrared sauna to offer near, mid and far infrared technology. This smart technology is proven effective and is a wellness tool adaptable to your health needs over time.
Mid infrared (MIR) can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process.
Far infrared (FIR) reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored.
Benefits of Infrared Therapy
1. Detoxifies the Blood
Some toxins that should be removed through sauna sessions are heavy metals, nicotine, and certain industrial compounds (like phthalates).
2. Improves the Immune System
In the sauna, your core temperature increases, and your body produces white blood cells to compensate the “mini fever”. With regular use, your white blood cell count can increase, meaning your body can fight illnesses faster.
3. Improves Circulation
Blood flow increases and expands the blood vessels making blood flow to the heart more effective.
4. Reduces/Relieves Pain
Not only does regular use of a sauna increase blood circulation, which can relieve and relax muscular pain, it has been proven effective at relieving joint and arthritic pain as well.
5. Stress Reduction
It reduces the body’s level of cortisol (the primary stress hormone). Regular use can relieve anxiety problems and sleep related issues, such as insomnia, which is often triggered by elevated levels of stress hormones.
6. Improves Cardio Conditioning
With consistency, it increases your heat tolerance threshold which can benefit your cardiovascular strength and endurance.
7. Quicker Recovery in Muscles
Increases the body’s circulation, which delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and cells in your body. The increased oxygen can help relieve tired and strained muscles.
8. Burns Calories
Dr. Oz mentioned on the Oprah Winfrey Show that in just one sauna session you can burn 600 calories due to the increased heat inside your body. Raising internal body temperature can increase your metabolism, which can lead to weight loss, although saunas should not be used exclusively for this purpose.
