Some have described the Infrared Sauna as the ‘Ultimate Weight Loss Solution’.
The sauna we have here at Vacu Fitness is definitely a healthy weight loss solution that does not require exercise. Infrared Saunas can burn 400-600 calories in one 30 minute session, that means a moderately fit person can sweat one pound of sweat in that 30 minutes, the same as running 2-3 miles. You can just sit back and relax in our infrared sauna and see the results for yourself.
Weight loss is just one of the many benefits of regularly using an Infrared Sauna.
These saunas have been around for a number of years, and the Japanese have been using them for the past century and have seen brilliant health benefits from their use. Unlike normal saunas, which pull sweat out of the body, the infrared energy pushes sweat out of the body by penetrating up to 3 inches into the body, heating the body and forcing the toxins under the skin out. The radiant heat created by the infrared energy is more effective as it heats you, not the surrounding air, much like the heat you feel on your skin on a cold but sunny day.
Whilst the infrared technology means the sauna temperature is almost 100 F lower than a traditional sauna, you’ll actually sweat far more as the infrared energy penetrates your body at the much deeper level. As the fat becomes water soluble it dissolves, moves through the blood and is finally removed from your body, resulting in weight loss. As toxins are also removed through the skin at the more comfortable temperature it results in rapid detoxification. Studies have shown that the detoxification potential of a far infrared sauna is 3 times greater than a regular sauna. The content of sweat when in an infrared sauna showed 15-20% contained toxic substances such as lead, aluminum and fluoride.
The Infrared Sauna can help break down cellulite. Cellulite is made up of fat, water and wastes trapped in pockets below the skin, as mentioned above, the profuse sweating can help clear this unwanted debris from the body. Due to the level of penetration achieved in infrared saunas they can be significantly more effective that a traditional sauna.
