Infrared sauna treatment for cellulite

infrared sauna will help diminish the appearance as the intensive sweating (2/3 times more than a traditional sauna) will get rid of unwanted toxins from the effected areas. Some experts in the field of weight loss and body fat say that the less body fat we have then the smaller our fat cells and then less pressure is exerted on the connective tissue. In simple terms this means that the cellulite is less visible. However, this may or may not be true. What we do know is that exercise definitely improves blood circulation in the skin and using the infrared sauna after exercise will just speed up the elimination of toxins, burn calories and reach twice the depth of heat penetration into the cellulite.

My Daily Infrared Sauna Session: How an Early Morning Session Will Make your Day

As autumn approaches and that cold chill is returning to the air, my infrared sauna sessions are becoming more frequent again. Not quite daily yet, but I find myself thinking about it more and I am trying to find ways of fitting it back into my daily  routine. As I start using my home sauna more often, I can feel that I am getting addicted to it once more. It is very similar to the endorphin addiction that I get from regular running, cycling or swimming. Once you have a regular rhythm going, your body craves it and feels great afterwards. Luckily I have a cabin in the corner of our spare bedroom which allows me to get a quick fix whenever I find the time. (more…)

What is Infrared Light?

Isaac Newton discovered that sunlight is composed of a rainbow of colours. We can see some of these colours, but others the human eye cannot distinguish. Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat.

Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion. The best way to describe the sun’s infrared heat is by imagining you are walking outside on a partly cloudy day of about 20 degrees Celsius. You would feel quite comfortable until the sun was suddenly obscured by a cloud. Although the air temperature did not have a chance to drop in those few seconds, you feel chilled, as the cloud blocks part of the warming infrared rays. (more…)
