Infrared Saunas And Nervous Tension

Humans may have the most advanced brains in the animal kingdom, but the nervous systems of humans and mammals are still relatively primitive. Whether we are being chased by an axe-wielding madman or running late for work because traffic is backed up on the interstate, our bodies respond the same; a threat is perceived, blood vessels constrict, the heart races, lungs open up, and adrenaline and glucocorticoids go coursing throughout the body. All those muscle-pumping hormones work really when trying to avoid an imminent threat, and the use of an infrared sauna may help relax your body once that threat is contained.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Nervous Tension

One of the most beneficial things that a Good Health Saunas' infrared sauna may do for your body is provide endless amounts of stress relief. As you may know, stress can extremely affect the body’s motor, circulatory, and neurologic systems. In regard to affecting your neurologic system, this means there is tension placed on your nerves, which obviously will cause a lot of pain in your system. Thankfully, the heat that is emitted from infrared saunas soothes your nerve endings, and, therefore, by using an infrared sauna, nervous tension is absolutely addressed and many times a huge difference maker in the world of pain! Due to the high heat experienced during a sauna session, your muscles and nerve endings are warmed and relaxed, creating the most relaxing environment.

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.
