My family is from South Lake Tahoe. With the many lakes all around us, I come from a long line of weekend fishermen. As I get older, the pain and stiffness I experience when I stay in a fixed position for a lot of time gets very annoying. I have also personally heard from many Far Infrared sauna owners regarding pain reduction. This is good – we can all use a little less pain in aging joints. These people are utterly convinced of the successful pain relief properties while using their Far Infrared saunas. The gentle heat aids not only general pain but specifically joint pain and it is significantly diminished after even only one sauna session. This happens when Far Infrared heat penetrates joints, muscles, tissues and increases circulation while allowing oxygenated blood to flow efficiently to injured or sore joints. Muscle spasms are reduced and when nerve endings calm down, relieving pain, the body is able to heal naturally.
Truth be told, Far Infrared heat will not necessarily cure all joint pain, but when combined with weekly sauna therapy as part of an ongoing health regimen, alot of the pain dissipates and your body will experience it’s many benefits along with an improvement in your quality of life. While enjoying Far Infrared heat, joint pain is lessened, mobility improves so you are encouraged to entertain a more active lifestyle, which naturally boosts your mood, increases better mental health and improves your wellbeing.
Those living with frequent joint pain imagine the day they can realize relief without medication. Prescriptions alleviate pain however they can stress the liver, when dangerous toxins increase. Then they will need to be eliminated. Because of this, those in pain are looking for an alternative to lower their pain and increase their mobility. Far Infrared sauna therapy is the most effective avenue for pain reduction while it also compliments traditional medical therapies.
Recently a study attributed joint pain relief from Far Infrared sauna therapy to a temporary rise in the delivery of noradrenaline, cortisol, adrenaline, and growth hormones. These are all anti-inflammatory. Endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, are also released. Of the people studied, more than 50% got relief from pain and an enjoyed an increase in mobility. When muscles are warmed, in the Far Infrared heat, the body’s tissues made of collagen, become more flexible as they are exposed to the increased temperature. As flexibility is improved a person can enjoy a more active lifestyle. Who wouldn’t want to get into nature and bring home fish for dinner. Remember, you can still brag about the huge one that ‘got away’!
