Dr. Myers is also admittedly a fan of Sunlighten™ saunas and has one in her home! She recently blogged on her site and on MindBodyGreen.com about the benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy, and we wanted to share her thoughts with you.
She cites detoxification, relaxation, and increased circulation as chief benefits of saunas and notes that sauna therapy is excellent for those who may be suffering from sports or other joint-related injuries. Sweating is a great way to burn calories and rid your body of unwanted toxins, and makes it possible for those who are injured or unable to exercise. Lastly, she states that with infrared sauna therapy, one can also lose weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase circulation, and purify skin.
In both posts, Dr. Myers highlights six amazing benefits that regular use of infrared saunas can provide:
Dr. Myers even offers usage recommendations for those new to infrared saunas. She recommends starting out with 4-minute sessions at 160-180 degrees Fahrenheit and slowly working your way up to 15-30 minute sessions.
She goes on to say that if an infrared sauna is not available, but you have access to a regular sauna, you can still achieve some degree of detoxification with 10-20 minute sessions at 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit.
