Yesterday I woke up with the granddaddy of all headaches. Today I am better but I’m still not 100% back. Should you find yourself in this position, suffering from the pain of migraine, or even just a sinus headache, do what I did and what I advise others to do – take a Far Infrared sauna to relieve your pain! Far Infrared sauna therapy has been used for years by physicians and therapists when pain relief was required. Particularly effective, Far Infrared saunas reduce immediate pain from headaches. It also aids in pain relief from sports injuries, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and several other chronic pain conditions.
Experience a noticeable reduction of pain and swelling in just a few sessions. Far Infrared sauna therapy is currently an effective treatment for headache pain relief. It has an extensive history and is an important part of the healing process, treating patients diagnosed with many forms of varying pain. Far Infrared sauna therapy utilizes light to create heat. Whereas, traditional saunas use heat to warm the air, which in turn warms the body. The benefit of infrared heat is the body is heated directly without warming the surrounding air. This heat is far more comfortable than steamed heat as it is not required to be as hot. Thus you can remain inside the sauna longer gaining all the benefits from the warm and gentle Far Infrared heat. The relief can be felt for many conditions. The main pain reduction occurs due to this comfortable infrared heat penetrating joints, muscles, tissues and nerve endings, while also producing additional white blood cells which alleviates inflammation. Inflammation has currently been identified as the leading cause of headaches, most ailments and health conditions. Far Infrared sauna use increases blood flow, bringing healthy, oxygenated blood to whatever area is in need.
This Far Infrared heat also helps reduce pain in those suffering from bursitis, fibromyalgia, back pain, sprains, rheumatoid arthritis and other muscular-skeletal ailments. Far Infrared sauna therapy elevates your core body temperature dilating the capillaries, arterioles, and venues’. During this deep heating process your muscles, joints, and soft tissue experience pain relief and extended healing. Elevated blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products, transporting oxygen rich blood to depleted muscles and joints as it penetrates 1.5″ to 2” deep into muscle tissue. Our skin absorbs 93% of Far Infrared energy. Heating these tissues relieves pain via reduction of attendant or secondary muscle spasms; often the cause of everyday headaches. Pain related to ischemia from tension or spasm can be improved by the hyperthermia produced by heat-induced vasodilatation, thus breaking the feedback loop which can lead to further spasm and pain.
The appeal of Far Infrared sauna therapy revolves around it’s lowered temperature. Many cannot tolerate the heated air of the traditional sauna. Infrared light/heat produces vigorous perspiration which in turn accelerates heart rate as when involved in moderate exercise. There is serious evidence, sited by many studies, that validate these results in terms of successfully treating various painful and also silent health conditions such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis.
While enjoying Far Infrared sauna therapy you will experience increased circulation triggering endorphin release and loosening tight muscles. When we are stressed we actually tense our muscles as we hurry through our day or worry about outcomes. Holding tension in our bodies can cause those nasty headaches which are otherwise so difficult to remedy. We burden our nervous system, muscle tissue, cardiovascular, respiratory, and our elimination system with our relentless stress level, fast paced diet, and irregular sleep patterns which only cause more stress and headaches. Overtake those stressors and begin to reduce the pain of headaches while relaxing in a Far Infrared sauna. You won’t regret it!
