Using Infrared Saunas to Lose Weight: The Facts
Let us start by saying, we think you are perfect just as you are!
But we also know what it feels like to be unhappy and unhealthy - it's a cycle that we were able to get out of thanks to infrared sauna therapy. While infrared sauna therapy is not primarily aimed at weight loss, it is aimed at supplementing everything else you do to achieve bodily balance (e.g. mindfulness, meditation or functional training).
In other words, complimenting your gym routine with infrared sauna sessions will result in even more weight loss (plus all of the other amazing benefits of a healthy sweat).
A study at Birmingham University revealed that an increase in core body temperature resulted in a considerable decrease in the participant’s body fat. The participants did not change their exercise or diet patterns during the experiment - they carried on with the routines they already had in place.
An infrared sauna session works differently to a a steam sauna - instead of heating the air, it focuses on heating your body directly, raising your core temperature rising as your body absorbs the infrared heat.
This process boosts your cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune systems, thus creating a fat based sweat that releases obesogens (toxins promoting fat retention). Infrared heat is also able to slightly increase human growth hormone production (HGH) and lower cortisol levels. This assists in increased weight loss and overall better health.
When it comes to weight loss and other physical changes brought about by infrared, everyone is individual. Everyone has different metabolisms, therefore drastic changes may occur for some, and for others, the results will be gradual.
Fortunately, infrared sauna therapy is also incredible for your mental health. Every one of our clients comes out of their session feeling relaxed and refreshed, often entering into the rest of their day with more positivity and confidence. You may want to lose weight, but remember this, the first step of looking good is FEELING good.
