Infrared Saunas And Headaches

Nearly 12% of Americans suffer from migraines, and this unfortunate health condition can happen to anyone, although you are more likely to suffer with migraines if you are a woman, have a family history of migraines, or have other medical conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder, hypertension, or epilepsy. Thankfully, infrared sauna technology may help improve the symptoms associated with this condition.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Headaches

Getting a headache or migraine is uncomfortable, and the experts at Good Health Saunas want to help. Medication works fine, but sometimes you want an excellent home remedy that has shown to help. Well, that's where an infrared sauna steps in. When healthy infrared heat from all angles of our 360 degrees engineering penetrates deep into your body and heats your internal temperature, it increases circulation and oxygenation of cells, which helps to prevent tension. In addition, an effective infrared sauna will have you sweating in no time, helping your body release toxins, which may help reduce your migraines. And, when you step foot in one of our models, you can be greeted with a cool blue or calming purple color from our chromotherapy lighting feature to help create a soothing experience to help further your recovery.


Science Backs Using Infrared Saunas For Headaches

In a study published by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, researchers show that infrared sauna treatment was effective at reducing migraine pain in patients. In this study, 37 people were randomly assigned into two groups: one received advice and prevention education and the other received the same advice and infrared sauna migraine relief therapy regularly for eight weeks. The intensity of headaches for those who enjoyed sauna sessions improved significantly over those who received the advice and prevention education.

Written Testimonials

Hands down the best investment I have ever made. I am more than happy with product and the entire process of getting the sauna. I am a full time working single mother who doesn’t have time to get to the gym to sweat everyday. I allow my sauna to heat while I get my daughter to sleep (15 minutes) and then get in it every night for one hour. I have noticed my energy increased immediately, my skin looks better, I have lost 10 lbs by just sweating, my thyroid levels have improved, and my migraines have decreased. I tell everyone to buy an infrared sauna from GHS because I know it will improve all areas of their life. I don’t know how I lived without my sauna. Honestly. Best thing I’ve ever done. Thank you Luke and Ryan for helping me pick the best one and making this process so easy.

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.
