How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Tendonitis
Good Health Saunas’ infrared saunas offer key features for helping to combat tendonitis, with the most important being our 360 degrees of heat penetration. Our infrared saunas come equipped with carbon and ceramic heaters throughout the entire sauna, including the floor, so this provides customers the assurance that all areas of their body are being penetrated by the infrared heat. The greatest contributor to tendonitis is inflammation, and the heat in our infrared saunas drives into the skin to reduce inflamed areas of the body, so why wouldn’t you want this benefit hitting you from every angle without having to move?VIEW OUR SAUNA MODELS
Science Backs Using Infrared Saunas For Tendonitis
Infrared saunas have been scientifically shown to reduce the risks associated with tendonitis, and Dr. Walter J. Crinnion analyzed a clinical study of infrared sauna therapy for chronic pain patients and stated, “At the end of the treatment program, the sauna group exhibited diminished pain behaviors and had statistically lower anger scores.” To read more, click the link below.

An overall invigorating experience! As a personal trainer/physical therapy tech for 20 yrs and having worked at many gyms with traditional saunas, I can honestly say that my experience with a Good Health Sauna was markedly better than the gym saunas. Being an avid weight lifter in my early 50’s, I noticed a few more aches in my joints, especially during the winter months in Wisconsin. To try to remedy this I would sit in the gym sauna prior to my lifting sessions to warm up my muscles and joints. I could usually only handle about 5 minutes or so before my throat and lungs would feel a mild burning sensation, which was uncomfortable, so I would leave. It helped my muscles and joints minimally and temporarily. One of my personal training clients recommended the Good Health Sauna. I was able try one out at their show at the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds exhibit hall and was immediately convinced! I was able to comfortably sit in it for 15 minutes with no throat or lung burn! And I felt relief in my joints! After purchasing one, I can comfortably sit in it for 45 to 60 minutes with no issues! My joint pain is virtually gone and I feel much better overall! I highly recommend a Good Health Sauna!!

We bought our Good Health Sauna at the Iowa state fair and have now been enjoying it for a year! We love how it warms us up in the winter months, and it feels amazing on the joints and muscles. Overall we would say we feel much more healthy as a result of using it. Every member of the Good Health Saunas team from sales to delivery and office staff have been thorough and courteous and we feel well cared for as customers. If you are even considering an infrared sauna, don’t wait! You will LOVE it!

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.
