At FYRE, we’re not just about working out, we’re about WELLNESS. As we continue to expand our service offering beyond Lagree Megaformer and VersaClimber classes, our focus is to bring whole health to each and every client. Our goal is not only to maximize your results, but to optimize your life.
As we looked at ways to bring more wellness and recovery options to the studio to complement our classes and Hyperice recovery tools, it became clear that adding Infrared Sauna was the next step. So what exactly is Infrared Sauna and what does it do?
What Is Infrared Light?
Nature delivers infrared via sunlight. The sun emits a wide range of light, most of which we can’t actually see. Sunlight is 52-55% infrared and it’s all the good parts of the sun’s healing light. Visible light and infrared are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, a continuum of light waves organized by how they interact with matter. Scientists explain infrared is a safe, gentle form of light that brings many good, healthy things to earth and human beings. The energy it delivers is just the right nudge cells need to stimulate warmth, growth and release.
Infrared’s healing rays are felt on our skin as warmth, and are absorbed by our bodies to help them detoxify, relax, improve circulation, recover faster, sleep better, age well and help us feel good. The proof of this activity in our body is evidenced in the increase in core body temperature that happens during a 30-minute infrared sauna session. Our Sunlighten sauna is clinically-proven to raise core body temperature 3 degrees, which unleashes the most benefits to our health.
What Are The Benefits of Infrared Sauna?
Sweat out the toxins. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health by helping to eliminate toxic heavy metals, drug residues, and hormone disruptors. With the deepest penetration, Sunlighten saunas’ infrared helps increase blood flow and perspiration.
Increase metabolism and burn fat. Increasing core body heat increases calorie burn, similar to exercise. Infrared saunas also help with the elimination of toxins that cause fat storage.
Improve heart health. Infrared therapy can help your heart work better by exercising the heart, temporarily reducing blood pressure, and improving circulation.
Reverse aging and renew skin. The near infrared LEDs have been shown to increase collagen and elastin, improving overall skin appearance. Increased circulation also contributes to faster cell regeneration, which helps with appearance of scars. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin.
Heating the body from inside can improve the function of the immune system just like a fever can. Therefore, regular Sunlighten sauna use can help reduce the incidences of cold and flu, or help you recover faster from illness.
Repair muscles faster. Many professional athletes use Sunlighten saunas to recover from their training and injuries. Infrared helps deliver more oxygen to cells for faster repair and pain relief.
