The infrared sauna effects are many and diverse. But there are especially some ways in which they can help women to feel and look better.
See the many and varied potential benefits of infrared sauna use by women.
First, the sauna provides mental benefit, by relaxing women who tend to be high strung, over-doers (which is most all of us). Women worry about their kids, their husbands, their parents and their friends - without taking enough time for themselves. Committing to an infrared sauna regimen a couple of times each week can make an impact on a woman's stress and anxiety levels. It is proven that this "mental break" can rejuvenate and help a woman to be better able to cope with the demands of a busy lifestyle. Apply the basics of meditation, and practice it in the sauna to receive all of the maximum benefits of infrared sauna effects combined with relaxation.
Many women also suffer from sinus or nasal problems, including allergies and asthma. One of the infrared sauna effects is that it can relieve the symptoms of these conditions. Reducing headaches, discomfort, and fatigue are just a few bonuses of infrared sauna use. Eucalyptus or menthol oil can also soothe, if you take a few drops in a vial to lightly inhale while in the sauna.
Note that if your sinuses are sensitive to dry air, you may want to inhale some water before you enter an infrared sauna, or sit a bowl of water in the sauna with you. Joint pain and muscle pain are also relieved by use of the sauna. Women who have discomfort caused by arthritis may find solace with infrared sauna effects.
For women who suffer from menstrual pain...the sauna is your friend. Time in the sauna often will greatly relieve menstrual cramp pains and discomforts. It has also been reported that women suffering from the effects of menopause may find relief through regular sauna use.
Remember that each woman may feel different levels of relief from the infrared sauna effects, and each body reacts differently to the heat of the sauna. Some people sweat more than others and wish to get out sooner, while some can stay in the sauna longer. Listen to your body - it will always tell you what it needs. Sweating in an infrared sauna is actually good to detox and cleanse the system. Using the sauna regularly, while lying prone to clear your mind and close your eyes, will allow you to be more in tune with your body. Women especially can benefit from paying close attention to their bodies. Remember to always stay hydrated with plenty of water when using a sauna or performing other physical activities.
Yet another benefit from infrared sauna for women is improved skin. Sauna use raises the heart rate of most people, which increases blood circulation. Blood circulation directly benefits your skin. Beyond that, the act of perspiring clears the skin. Sauna use can reduce blackheads and blemishes. Also consider the dozens of chemicals women come in contact with every day that contribute to skin damage. Soaps, hairsprays, perfumes, deodorants, cleaning detergents - and even the chlorine in our shower water all contribute to aging the skin. Repeated use of the infrared sauna has been shown to slowly restore / revitalize damaged skin. Many women who use the sauna will notice smoother, clearer skin.
When you think about it, all of this ties in together. Increased heart rate and increased metabolism means...you are burning calories when you are in the sauna. Women especially have a difficult time losing weight. There is a direct link between infrared sauna and weight loss. Of course you need exercise, and you need to eat healthy meals and reasonable portions. But when you burn calories, you are aiding your weight loss efforts. You also lose water weight when you sweat, but that is only temporary.
Sweating is the body's safe and natural way to heal. This is why you often have a fever when you are ill. It's the body's defense, to fight the bad stuff and get it out of you. This leads to the reasons why saunas are said to be "detoxifying". Although experts disagree on the level of detoxification you experience, and you will find lots of information on this subject when you search the web.
Another debated benefit of the infrared sauna is the breaking down of cellulite. Some women do experience reduced cellulite appearance, as infrared heat penetrates below the skin's surface and can break down the gel-like substance.
Finally, women who have weak immune systems and find themselves getting sick too often may possibly benefit from the infrared sauna. The "artificial fever" created in the sauna stimulates white blood cell production and this supports the immune system.
Women have long sought ways to relax, rejuvenate, reduce aches and pains, and lose weight. Infrared saunas just may hold the answer! If you experience just half of the advantages possible by using an infrared sauna, you will feel and look noticeably better - and what woman doesn't want that?
