Arthritis and Joint Pain Relief with Far Infrared Therapy

As I get older I experience stiffness and pain in many of my joints. There is also the pain and stiffness I experience when I stay in a fixed position for a lot of time. It is widely acknowledged that consistent use of far infrared sauna therapy seriously aids in the eradication of not only joint pain but also assists in the elimination of the more severe pain caused by arthritis.

I have also personally heard from many far infrared sauna owners regarding this result and evidence of 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 relief 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. The gentle heat from far infrared soothes the causes and symptoms of arthritis and its resulting joint pain.

Truth be told, far infrared heat will not necessarily cure all arthritis and joint pain, but when combined with weekly sauna therapy as part of an ongoing health regimen, a lot of the pain dissipates and your body will experience its many benefits along with an improvement in your quality of life. 

While enjoying the 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 arthritis and 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 as 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 are considered to be the body’s organic painkillers; they are released. From this study over half received relief from general pain and enjoyed added 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.

From another study, a report produced by Saxion University of Applied Sciences, states that there are additional positive effects from far infrared sauna therapy. This university, located in the Netherlands, took seventeen individuals who suffered from arthritis, some from RA, and treated them with infrared sauna treatments over a period of four weeks. They discovered that this therapy decreased pain, stiffness, and fatigue and was significantly successful in benefitting pain reduction from those suffering from mild to severe arthritis.

Far infrared saunas have been used for many years in the relief of many types of pain to include temporary and chronic pain. The deep heat penetrates and detox’s allowing for relief from joint pain, arthritis pain – even pain from RA. Arthritis pain can be debilitating. It is a serious disease and its symptoms are greatly relieved when utilizing far infrared therapy. 

The heat from infrared infiltrates tissues, muscles, and organs. It penetrates the blood flow as it excites the body’s cells to throw off and eliminate toxins. Circulation is improved, metabolism increases and tissues are re-oxygenated. The gentle heat from far infrared lowers pain levels and has been proven to relieve chronic pain, as well.

If you suffer from arthritis, always consult your health practitioner first about including my suggestion utilizing far infrared sauna therapy into your daily health regimen. Combined with diet, exercise, and medication, a far infrared sauna may help you recapture a more active, pain-free lifestyle allowing you to enjoy more balance and abundant health in your daily living.
