The Finish were some of the first people to recognize the healing power of heat therapy that has been a part of their culture and tradition for more then 2,000 years. So, it’s no surprise that Finland is considered as the home of the traditional sauna designed to deliver the healing effects of heat therapy. Did you know that there are over three million saunas in Finland and people there often enjoy in a relaxing sauna session at least twice a week.
The traditional Finish sauna, also referred to as a smoke sauna, is heated by wood that is burned in a stove with a chimney. Detoxification and enhanced blood flow are just some of the health benefits that you can experience during a single sauna session since the heat produced by the sauna can make you sweat a lot more then doing any other activity like running or exercising in the gym.
While the Finish sauna is well-know for its healing effects you don’t have to travel to Finland to enjoy in a relaxing sauna session. Thanks to the practical design of the infrared portable sauna you can experience the effects of heat therapy in the comfort of your home. This is a type of sauna that makes use of both infrared light and heat to warm up your body and make you sweat. The main difference between a traditional sauna and an infrared portable sauna is the ambient temperature. To make you sweat a traditional sauna heats up the ambient air and to do so often reaches a high temperature that can make the whole sauna experience quite uncomfortable.
Infrared saunas, on the other hand make use of infrared light that can penetrate deeply into the skin and make you sweat without heating up the air. This allows you to enjoy in a much more comfortable and relaxing sauna session. The pleasant heat created by the infrared sauna stimulates blood flow, which in turn provides enhanced circulation to the extremities. This means that with heat therapy you can experience considerable pain relief in your joints and muscles. Regular sauna sessions can also be very beneficial for alleviating back pain and neck stiffness that often occur due to spending long hours in a seated position while working.
One of the best ways to get rid of all the harmful toxins in your body is through the process of sweating and the infrared sauna is designed to help the body remove toxins a lot more effectively by helping you achieve a powerful sweat at a cellular level. Sweating can also clear out your pores which will result in a clear and healthier looking skin. Therefore, relaxing in your home infrared sauna is a great way to improve both your health and appearance.
