Infrared Saunas And Leg Ulcers

Infrared saunas have been shown to aid in the fight against a wide range of health conditions, and that includes leg ulcers. Ulcers that appear on the legs can be extremely painful, and are caused by conditions such as diabetes, poor circulation, high blood sugar, and more. If you suffer from leg ulcers, then you understand just how severe and embarrassing this condition can be. Thankfully, our infrared sauna technology is here to help.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Leg Ulcers

Good Health Saunas’ infrared saunas offer key features for combatting ulcers on legs, and one of those is our oxygen ionizer. Any infected area of the body requires complete cleanliness, and the filtration system in our infrared saunas ensures the air flowing around the sauna is refreshing and sterile. Another important factor of our infrared saunas that aids in the fight against leg ulcers is our heating system in the floor. A Good Health Saunas’ infrared sauna comes equipped with floor heaters, which directly penetrate the legs and create the greatest impact for healing. Infrared sauna benefits are vital to the recovery from leg ulcers, and we’re not the only ones who see it. Don’t believe us? Then trust the experts!

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.
