Infrared Saunas And Cancer Pain

Cancer is different for everyone, but infrared technology may help!

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Cancer Pain

Good Health Saunas’ infrared saunas offer key features for combatting the chronic pain linked to cancer, and some of those are our chromotherapy lighting options, 360 degrees of heat penetration, and interior entertainment center. Going through the mental pain of a cancer diagnosis is half the battle, and the chromotherapy lighting options in a Good Health Saunas’ infrared sauna may instill a relaxing and calm mood in the infrared sauna with their a cool blue or deep purple setting. Our infrared saunas also come equipped with a variety of heaters located throughout the entire sauna, including the floor. This feature ensures individuals with pain can feel healthy infrared heat in all parts of their bodies. This perk also allows those suffering from cancer pain to remain in one position without having to frequently move to get that penetrating infrared heat. And finally, a Good Health Saunas’ infrared sauna includes a versatile entertainment center so that sauna users can customize the type of music or stories they want to hear. And, for those suffering from the extremities of cancer pain, a relaxing playlist can truly enhance the overall sauna experience and symptom improvement.


Science Backs Using Infrared Saunas For Cancer Pain

Infrared saunas have been scientifically proven to reduce the risks associated with cancer pain, and In an article in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, Lawrence Wilson, MD writes, “If I were to single out one method to combat cancer, it is the sauna. It assists removal of chemical toxins and heavy metals, increases oxygenation, enhances the immune system, and reduces the radiation burden in the body.”

Tips for the Best Sauna Experience

1. Stretch before entering the sauna.

Stretching wakes up your body, gets your blood pumping, and increases your flexibility, and these preparations will ensure that your mind, body, and health will see the greatest results after your infrared sauna session.

2. Hydrate your body.

They say you should drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day, and they’re not wrong! Keeping your body hydrated guarantees that you’ll have the stamina to enjoy an entire session of healthy heat in an infrared sauna.

3. Find the right settings.

Not everyone has the same body, so not everyone should have the same settings when it comes to their infrared sauna experience. If you’re looking to truly relax, then you may want to adjust the chromotherapy lighting to our cool blue, turn the heat to a lower temperature, and play some calming tunes. But, if you’re someone who wants to use the infrared sauna to feel energized, then perhaps a radiant orange, higher temperature, and an inspiring music selection is the way to go.

4. Take advantage of the bench.

Our infrared saunas come equipped with a comfortable bench that’s stationed at just the right height, so use it! The bench gives you somewhere to put your feet up to relax, sit calmly if you want to meditate, or provides an area for you to do that stretching we talked about earlier.
