Infrared Saunas And Varicose Veins

Infrared saunas have been shown to aid in the fight against a wide range of health conditions, and that includes varicose veins. Varicose veins are unsightly and uncomfortable for those who suffer, and this condition can be paralyzing if not treated properly. Thankfully, our infrared technology is here to help!

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Varicose Veins

Good Health Saunas’ infrared saunas offer key features for combatting varicose veins, with the most important component being our heaters in the floor. Our infrared saunas come equipped with carbon and ceramic heaters located throughout the entire sauna itself, but the most impactful heaters for varicose vein sufferers are those found under their feet. These heaters ensure that individuals receive direct penetration from healthy infrared heat to their legs, which may help improve blood flow and circulation to fight against the formation or enlargement of varicose veins. If you don’t believe it, then trust the experts! 


Science Backs Using Infrared Saunas For Varicose Veins

Infrared saunas have been scientifically shown to reduce the risks associated with varicose veins, and a statement from New York Laser & Skin Care states, “Near-infrared wavelengths have produced safer and more predictable results for the treatment of leg veins.” To read the full study, click the link below.

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.
