Infrared Saunas for Pain Relief
Good Health Saunas’ infrared saunas have been proven to aid in the fight against a wide range of health conditions, including pain management. Regularly relaxing in an infrared sauna has the ability to mitigate any pain living in your body. Infrared saunas have been known to help people lessen existing pain in their back, joints, arms, legs, head, and neck
How Our Infrared Saunas Can Help Reduce Pain
Sitting in our infrared saunas will cause your blood vessels to dilate and relax. This process increases blood flow within your body, reducing tension within the joints for an extended period of time. The relaxation and tension depletion occurring in the joints can help lead to decreased pain associated with your arthritis or chronic pain.
A study from Louisiana State University shows how sauna use positively affects blood flow. The university tested a group of 52 random male students to determine the cardiovascular benefits of sauna use in comparison to no sauna use and running. They found that sauna use has a greater effect on pulse recovery rate compared to no use and running. Pulse recovery rate refers to the rate at which your active pulse can return to a resting state.
|Initial Pulse Recovery Rate (BPM)
|Final Pulse Recovery Rate (BPM)
|Mean Gain (BPM)
Data from this study shows that test subjects who sat in a sauna three days a week for six weeks saw a 15.7% increase in their pulse recovery rate. This is 19.2% better than the control group and 3% better than those who ran three days a week for six weeks.
An increase in your recovery pulse rate demonstrates a strengthened cardiovascular system, resulting in greater blood flow. The better blood flow you have, the better your body can recover from pain and injury.
Good Health Saunas’ infrared saunas deliver key features for combating the symptoms linked with pain management. Our unique infrared saunas have 360 degrees of infrared heat penetration that ensures all areas of the body are being equally targeted. Our saunas are also equipped with an oxygen ionizer, an air purifying system that leaves the air within the sauna clean and fresh.
Physicians and Science Backing Our Infrared Saunas
Infrared saunas have been scientifically proven to reduce symptoms associated with overall pain management. Experts say that exposure to too many environmental factors can worsen your pain, but a few sessions in an infrared sauna can cleanse your system and release tension within the body.
According to Healthline, Debra Rose Wilson, an associate professor and holistic healthcare practitioner, said infrared saunas “(are) an optional treatment for regional or chronic pain and can be complementary to physical therapy and injury treatment.” Dr. Wilson continues to say “…this treatment can add to quality of life, range of motion, reduce pain, and increase mobility. I would recommend this for some patients.”
Dr. Brent A. Bauer from Mayo Clinic also says that multiple studies have proven the use of infrared saunas to be beneficial in the treatment of chronic health problems, including:
- High blood pressure
- Congestive heart failure
- Type 2 diabetes
