A sauna at the spa used to be the pinnacle of luxury, and for those who could afford it a sauna treatment offered great health benefits. Fortunately, saunas are more accessible nowadays, especially with near infrared and far infrared sauna systems that can be installed at home and more gyms making saunas available as well. If you haven’t tried sauna therapy yet, it could be well worth the effort to improve the look of your skin, help you lose weight, fight off infection, detox the body from all sorts of toxins, and generally improve your health.
A traditional wet sauna or dry sauna treatment can encourage the body to sweat out bodily wastes and toxins. It also lightly stresses the cardiovascular system for better heart health and blood vessels. Near infrared and far infrared saunas have much the same positive health effects, with some variations.
