Embrace the Summer with the Refreshing Infrared Heat at The Sauna Lab

As temperatures soar and summer approaches, many wonder if using an infrared sauna during the hottest months is less or more effective. Let’s shed some light on the remarkable benefits that await at The Sauna Lab, even when summer is already bringing the heat.

While it may seem counterintuitive to seek additional warmth in an infrared sauna when simply stepping outside feels sweltering, the heat emitted by the sun differs from the full-spectrum heat provided by infrared saunas.

By utilizing near, mid, and far-infrared waves at The Sauna Lab, the body is heated from within, allowing these infrared waves to deeply penetrate the skin, muscles, joints, and tissues. This results in improved blood circulation, enhanced oxygen flow, and effective detoxification at a cellular level, eliminating waste and harmful toxins like cholesterol and heavy metals. Even if the temperature is adjusted to a cooler setting, you can still enjoy infrared sauna benefits.

On the other hand, ultraviolet (UV) light from direct sunlight, a type of electromagnetic radiation responsible for summer tans and sunburns, presents potential harm to the skin. 

Excessive exposure to UV rays can lead to premature aging, wrinkles, liver spots, and even eye problems. Fortunately, infrared saunas do not produce UV rays, eliminating the risk of sunburn and its detrimental effects. By using light colors, including red light, infrared saunas create a safe and restorative sweat, leaving the user feeling rejuvenated after each 40 minute session.

Remember, one can never get sunburned from an infrared sauna since sunburn is caused by UV rays, which infrared saunas do not emit. However, it’s essential to stay hydrated and limit your sessions to no more than 40 minutes to avoid dehydration.

An infrared sauna session can aid weight loss, calorie burning, improve heart and respiratory health, boost immunity, relax muscles, enhance sleep, and help you acclimate to the rising temperatures. Moreover, the mental health benefits of infrared saunas include stress relief, increased production of dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin, and an overall improvement in mood and well-being. Many individuals who neglect their sauna routines during warmer months or lack consistency often report feeling less well than they do during the cooler winter months.

Maintain a hot wellness routine by embracing infrared saunas this summer. 

We all need mental resets, self-care, a good sweat, and overall well-being. Just remember to stay adequately hydrated, allow for a proper cool-down period, and consider adjusting the room temperature to ensure a safe and rewarding experience with infrared and red light therapy, even during the summer. www.thesaunalab.com
