Infrared Saunas: Heat That’s More than Skin Deep
To learn what makes an infrared sauna different than other ways of getting toasty, read on.
The soothing power of the sauna originated centuries ago in Finland. Early saunas were often built underground and filled with steam created by dousing hot stones with cold water. Later, aboveground saunas were built from wood and warmed with smoke from stone fireplaces. In 1965, this traditional technology took another step forward when the infrared sauna was invented in Japan. Today, these rooms combine the ancient concept of healing heat with modern technology to rejuvenate people across the globe.
Complex science hides behind the infrared sauna’s simple name. The room is typically fashioned from cedar or spruce and is heated up to well past 100 degrees Fahrenheit in order to increase the body’s internal temperature, like any other sauna. But the infrared wavelengths used to do so actually reach beneath the skin’s surface rather than simply warming the air. This process can activate the lymphatic system to encourage a variety of healthful benefits, from the loss of water weight to the release of toxins. And, like a traditional sauna, its gentle warmth can also lessen pain and relax the body and mind.
Most people who come to Thinessence do so because they want to lose weight. But the center's programs are designed to do much more than that. By bringing together a wide range of tech-forward services and therapies, Thinessence hopes to help its clients achieve better mind-body balance and make life-long changes that make them feel better inside and out. Comprehensive weight-loss programs*, for example, focus not just on the physical aspects of weight loss, but the mental aspects as well. In addition to nutrition advice and training, clients also receive hypnotherapy sessions, access to workshops, and more. Infrared sauna sessions, meanwhile, warm the body from the inside out to help encourage detoxification and boost circulation. The sauna is often used to enhance weight-loss programs, but also delivers benefits when used on its own.
