Infrared Saunas And Menstrual Pain

Infrared saunas have been shown to aid in the fight against a wide range of health conditions, and that includes menstrual pain. Menstruation is just a fact of life for post-pubescent women, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t options available to combat its unpleasant side effects. And, thankfully, an infrared sauna may help.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Menstrual Pain

While Good Health Saunas' infrared saunas were designed with the goal of helping users reach unparalleled states of relaxation, they have also been found to help menstruation, low blood sugar, high blood pressure, and many other conditions. Notably, infrared saunas may help relieve symptoms related to menopause, such as depression, chills, nervousness, anxiety, stomach cramping, and headaches. It’s important to remember that every woman, because of her unique physiology, will have a different feeling when she uses an infrared sauna during menstruation. Because infrared saunas do help boost blood circulation to tissues and muscles, individuals may experience a slightly heavier period. But, this can also help to reduce the duration of your period. It is also important to keep up with your water and electrolyte intake when using an infrared sauna, since you will sweat and hydration is one of the pillars of great health.


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.
