Far infrared sauna heat works by penetrating tissues, joints, and muscles thereby increasing efficient blood flow allowing for better circulation. By reducing pain on the nerve endings, wherever that occurs, the far infrared heat from a sauna will reduce pain and muscle spasms allowing your body to relax and heal naturally.
Far infrared therapy is extremely effective for all types of pain especially back pain. If you give far infrared sauna therapy a try I truly believe your disbelief will change to much-needed relief!
Also, utilizing far infrared sauna therapy, particularly after exercise, has been proven to have advantages as well. The infrared heat decreases the lactic acid build up in your muscles. Lactic acid is what causes your muscles to ache and feel sore after participating in any activity.
The far infrared waves penetrate deep into your muscles, close to two inches, which increases the blood circulation to your cells. This increased blood flow equally transports fresh nutrients and oxygen to your depleted muscle cells and flushes out the waste products formed including lactic acid. Recovery time is remarkably faster.
The quickest and most effective avenue that both adds to overall flexibility even as it assists in almost complete pain relief can be realized when consistently using far infrared. Far infrared saunas are truly an amazing tool to add into your good health arsenal especially if you consistently exercise or just love to enjoy the outdoors.
