Infrared Saunas

Written by Wellnesss Suppliers NZ on November 1st, 2016.      0 comments

What is an Infrared Sauna?
Researchers have been studying the effects of saunas for decades when it comes to pain management and relaxation. Infrared saunas are relatively new compared to conventional saunas but have picked up attention recently for helping naturally treat multiple health problems with little to no side effects.
Infrared sauna use is perhaps the most effective and efficient method of prompting a state of hyperthermia for detoxification. A fever is the body’s natural mechanism for releasing bacteria, viruses, and other toxic organisms by sweating them out through the skin.  It is a natural means of healing. Hyperthermia (heat therapy) refers to the various methods of creating fever to stimulate the body’s healing process. Toxic chemicals from our environment, such as pesticides and phthalates, can be excreted through the body through sweat.
Who Should Use an Infrared Sauna?
One of the biggest benefits of infrared saunas is that they’re comfortable and simple to use.
Infrared sauna therapy is great for people with:
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • chronic fatigue
  • poor digestion
  • depression and anger
  • chronic muscle and joint pains
What are the Benefits of an Infrared Sauna?
Detoxification – Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification.

Relaxation – Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

Pain Relief – If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.

Weight Loss – The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience 
when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss.

Improved Circulation – As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.

Skin Purification – Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from yourpores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.

Heart Function – Use of infrared sauna treatments for normalizing blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and treating congestive heart failure.

Ease Chronic Pain – Infrared sauna treatments can help reverse chronic pain with little or no side effects.

How negative Ions affect the Human Body?
Numerous studies have established the effect of Negative Charged Ion environment on the human body.
  • The negative charged environment has stimulated the body's own healing mechanism in the case of stress and specific physical problems. 
  • Increase blood flow with resultant increased oxygen-carrying capacity, both of which are basic to help the body healing itself.  
  • Changes in migration of calcium ions which can either bring calcium ions to heal a broken bone in half the usual time, or can help move calcium away from painful, arthritic joints. 
  • The pH balance (acid/alkaline) of various body fluids. (Often out of balance in conjunction with illness or abnormal conditions). 
  • Hormone production from the endocrine glands can be either increased or decreased by Negative Ion stimulation; Altering of enzyme activity and other bio-chemical processes. 
 The Benefits of Alpha Waves
First of all Tourmaline is a product of nature and not man made. Tourmaline naturally produces Alpha Waves! Studies have shown that the alpha state has many therapeutic effects on our health, including:
  • Balances the right and left hemisphere of the brain.
  • Brain strengthening and an increase in intellect.
  • Improvement in mental clarity and focus.
  • Help with falling asleep.
  • Delay of the aging process.
  • Improvement in the body’s ability to heal itself.

Why should you be thinking about going into the Sauna Market?
One of the best ways for a business to grow is for it to successfully react to change; to see new opportunities in the market and take advantage of them.
The fastest changing, and fastest growing sector of our industry right now is the sauna market and is grown by two factors; awareness of the product and people’s desire for relaxation and wellbeing.
There are a few other things about the sauna Market that make it an attractive one:
Saunas are easy to install. You certainly have all the skills that you would need to know already.
The sauna market tends to be less seasonal than either pools or spas and, as they are almost always installed indoors, the work isn’t weather dependent. 
Saunas are an established part of the wet leisure industry. Along with hot tubs, spas and swimming pools, they share a core promise of health, relaxation and enjoyment.
From your customer’s point of view and from a marketing point of view, they fit naturally together.
The modern Infrared Sauna is following in the footsteps of the spa by it’s ability to be fitted with special lighting packs as well as entertainment packages such as sounds systems, which can help add to the profit of the appointment.
