Hundreds, even thousands of years ago, people turned to heat therapy as a source of healing. Although they could not refine the process like we can today, they paved the way for the recognition of a natural phenomenon that is resurfacing with the support of the medical industry and the testimony of its users.
FIR Sauna heat therapy can aid in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in a substantial caloric loss in a sauna heat session.
It also increases heart rate and blood circulation, both crucial to maintaining one’s health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin without heightening blood pressure.
For injuries, heat stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, speeding the healing of sprains and strains, thus relieving pain.
The increased blood helps aching and injured muscles recover faster because the stronger the flow of blood, the quicker metabolic and toxic waste products are purged from the body, through the skin during perspiration. The skin is often known as the third kidney because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating up to 30% of body waste.
