There’s no denying that taking a sauna makes you feel good. But in the never-ending battle to contain, and hopefully overcome, athletic injury and illness, and help muscles damaged by a hard training day, a well-used weapon in my armory is my own even more specialized Clearlight infrared sauna. Long story short, from my perspective, it utilizes far infrared heat to improve my immune system, remove toxins, and relieve my endless muscle pains.
You sweat in a sauna. Of course you do. But not many people realize that when you sweat in an infrared sauna you get rid of built up toxins and toxic metals by increasing the blood circulation. The immune system also benefits from the increase in core body temperature, essentially inducing an artificial fever, which in turn accelerates the immune response. Overall health improves as a result.
My Clearlight infrared sauna also helps relieve muscle pain by increasing blood circulation, which both takes away waste and brings oxygen-rich blood to my tired muscles, which helps them recover. And I can’t tell you how much the warmth from my sauna helps my muscles relax.
In short, my Clearlight sauna works by utilizing the same far infrared heat produced by the sun in speeding up blood circulation and oxygen flow to my tired and damaged muscles, while at the same time removing toxins and cell impurities. That is something I definitely need after my usual hard eight-hour training day.
