Infrared Sauna for Detoxification in Bend, OR
Saunas, steam rooms, sweat lodges, bathhouses, and others have been around for ages in multiple different cultures. Their goals are all very similar, get you relaxed and get you to sweat. We are warm-blooded creatures, meaning we are designed to make our own heat. If we are in a warm environment, the body can then focus its energy elsewhere. The high amounts of heat will cause many different biological reactions, including stress relief, pain relief, weight loss, immune system support, skin health, and detoxification.
Sweating is a very important tool our body uses to maintain its health. While the primary function of sweat is to cool down the body, we are very good at making functions multipurpose. Sweat will also contain many toxins that we accumulate throughout our lives. Detoxification is so important that we have a specific organ designed just for it, the liver. Allowing the skin to remove some harmful toxins will really help with overall health.
Infrared (IR) Sauna is a special kind of sauna. The infrared nature allows the heat to penetrate deeper into the body. The deeper the heat means a stronger effect on the deeper tissues and a deeper detox. If your goal is detoxification or symptoms relief, then IR Sauna is likely going to give you better results.
