Infrared Saunas at Hand & Land, Kansas City
Infrared light is necessary for all living things to live, grow, and flourish - it is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate human tissue, but unlike lengthy sun exposure the infrared light in a sauna will not burn your skin. By raising your core body temperature, FIR stimulates the sweat glands resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Flush the impurities out and leave feeling revitalized.
- Detox: Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Infrared is beneficial because it heats the body directly at the core rather than simply warming the air which results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where the majority of toxins reside.
- Lower Blood Pressure: Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.
- Weight Loss: Studies have shown that a far infrared sauna therapy session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! Far infrared sauna wavelengths create a passive workout, stimulating sluggish metabolism and improving fat burning. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
- Relieve Pain: Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, and speeds up recovery time.
- Heart Health: Infrared sauna treatments are like giving your body a passive cardiovascular workout. Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
- Relaxation: Truly relax and de-stress. Step into your peaceful wellness sanctuary and experience therapeutic heat that leaves you feeling physically restored and mentally refreshed.
