Looking to boost your workout recovery in Vancouver? Look no further than our private infrared sauna located at Spartacus Gym on Commerical Drive.
Infrared saunas differ from traditional saunas by penetrating deep into the tissues as opposed to simply heating the air around you. In addition to infrared saunas being more comfortable than traditional saunas, infrared offers several unique benefits that can greatly improve your overall health.
Benefits of Infrared Sauna
A review by UBC’s Department of Family Practice discovered that infrared saunas normalize blood pressure and cholesterol levels, while improving overall heart function and lowering the incidence of ventricular arrhythmias.
Just one 30-minute session can burn up to 600 calories – the equivalent of an hour-long cardio workout. In combination with a comprehensive training and nutrition program, the infrared sauna can contribute to a faster rate of fat-loss.
Researchers from Saxion University of Applied Science in the Netherlands found that infrared sauna treatments reduced chronic muscular and joint pain without any side effects.
Infrared saunas can help the body tolerate different types of stress better. Researchers from Nishi Kyusyu University in Japan discovered that infrared saunas had greater stress-relieving beneﬁts than medications alone.
Regular infrared sauna treatments increase collagen production, reduce ﬁne lines, and help to hydrate the skin. Your skin will become puriﬁed through the elimination of toxins from your pores and increased circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.
As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions can stimulate blood ﬂow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease post-workout soreness after intense exercise.
BOOSTED IMMUNE SYSTEM
The heat generated by an infrared sauna stimulates energy at a cellular level which increases the body’s production of white blood cells. These cells form a component of your blood and act as your immune system’s ﬁrst line of defence.
