The supposed benefits of using an infrared sauna are similar to those experienced with a traditional sauna. These include:
 

    better sleep
    relaxation
    detoxification
    weight loss
    relief from sore muscles
    relief from joint pain such as arthritis
    clear and tighter skin
    improved circulation
    help for people with chronic fatigue syndrome
 


 

 

Stress and fatigue reduction
 

Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna will help one feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed.
 

Many infrared sauna customers comment on how much they look forward to their sauna session. An infrared sauna sanctuary provides a great time to relax. It’s like having a day spa in the home that’s open all the time.
 

Infrared saunas have been shown to affect the autonomic nervous system by putting the user in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state, allowing the body to heal and restore itself.

 

Weight loss and increased metabolism
 

An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association has stated that regular use of an infrared sauna imparts a similar boost to the cardiovascular system as running. While relaxing in the gentle infrared heat, the body is producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories.
 

This is called a “passive aerobic workout,” because although the body is receiving all these benefits, it is not being stressed in the same way as a normal workout. The body is more relaxed and is in parasympathetic mode during that time.
 

As the body increases sweat production to cool itself, the heart works harder to pump blood while boosting circulation. This increase in metabolism is also burning more calories.
 

A 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn somewhere between 300–800 calories.
