Almost everyone can benefit from the regular use of our Hybrid saunas. Talk to your local Arctic Sauna representative about how to use our hybrid saunas to achieve the best results for you. Even though there are many health related claims made by sauna proponents worldwide, we often only mention the most mainstream and generally accepted benefits. Time spent in an Arctic Hybrid sauna can offer you almost all of the benefits claimed to result from using both traditional dry saunas and infrared saunas.
In “Far infrared mode”, our saunas can often be used by heart patients. The high air temperatures of a conventional sauna are likely to be uncomfortable and even dangerous for many heart patients. The lower temperatures in our “Far infrared mode” make the sauna a safer and more pleasant experience.
We highly recommend that if you are concerned that a pre-existing medical condition may limit your ability to use this product that you consult your doctor first!
In today’s lifestyles, most of us don’t actively sweat on a daily basis. Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Sweating is as essential as breathing and eating. Sweating cleanses, removes body waste, and regulates body temperature.
Numerous medical studies show that deep sweating has multiple health benefits. Regular use of an Arctic Hybrid Sauna provides the benefits derived from a deep sweat:
• In the heat of a sauna, the core body temperature begins to rise. The blood vessels dilate, causing increased blood flow. Skin is the largest organ in the body and it plays a significant part in the detoxification process. As heat from the blood moves toward the skin’s surface and the core body temperature rises, the body’s nervous system sends signals to the millions of sweat glands covering the body. As the sweat glands are stimulated they produce sweat. Sweat production is primarily for cooling of the body, and is composed mostly of water – but deep sweating in a sauna can help reduce levels of lead, copper, zinc, nickel and mercury – all toxins commonly picked up from our environment.
• At the same time, skin is cleansed and dead cells are replaced, keeping your skin in good working condition.
• Sweat opens skin pores so your body can rinse bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts. Cleansing of the pores improves the capillary circulation and gives the skin a soft, beautiful appearance. Heavy perspiration in a sauna is an excellent way to combat skin blemishes including acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Increased blood flow
Sauna heat is also useful in relieving joint pain as the heat helps to increase blood flow to the entire joint structure – aiding in the healing process and relaxing contracted muscles. The combination heat of our Hybrid sauna increases blood circulation in both deep and surface tissues. The increased blood flow accelerates the body’s natural healing process. This can help accelerate healing of wounds, injuries, and surgeries.
A sauna’s effectiveness in weight loss has been the main reason why people choose sauna use over many other types of exercise. Saunas work positively on our metabolism and increase both the rate and intensity, which in turn results in weight loss. Saunas help in burning sizeable amounts of calories. The number of calories burned in a 30 minute sauna is almost equivalent to the number of calories burned in a brisk walk of the same duration. Approximately 600 calories can be burned in a 30 minute sauna session.
Incorporating a regular sauna into your daily routine can also help mental and physical relaxation and release tension. Many people find that the soothing heat and quiet time to be a great way to wind down after a stressful day at work. Others choose to use the sauna before bed to promote a deeper, more restful sleep. One thing is certain – you will find yourself energized and rejuvenated after time in the sauna.
Improved Immune system
The heat of a sauna helps our body improve our immune system by increasing our body temperature which simulates the fever condition. This fever condition activates all of the organs of the body to begin the job of fighting what ails it. Many people claim it to be the cure for headaches and the common cold.
Temporary pain relief
Under high heat, the body releases endorphins – the body’s naturally-produced pain relieving chemical. Endorphins can have a mild and enjoyable tranquilizing effect and have the ability to quell the pain of arthritis and muscle soreness from an intense physical workout.
