Your body at work during a far infrared session

Infrared CabinDuring a far infrared sauna session, your body will warm up gradually. In a 30 minute session, you will typically start to sweat after 8 to 10 minutes. The sweating is a reaction of your body in an attempt to cool down and reduce the heat. During this process you will lose fluids and toxins. Sweating while the body is at rest is one of the best ways of getting rid of toxins.

But that is not the only thing that happens. While trying to cool itself down, the body has to use up energy to do so. This means you burn calories, without effort and without getting tired. While you are relaxing and sitting comfortably in your Health Mate sauna, your body is hard at work. You can feel it doing so as your heart rate rises slightly and your blood flow increases just like if you were doing physical exercise. This is called a passive workout and can be very beneficial for people who are restricted in their mobility. You feel good, even after just one session. Tensions release and your muscles become supple again. Even your skin feels fresh and revived after just half an hour.
