Infrared light therapy can be very effective for those who cannot participate in traditional exercise programs due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems.1
During an infrared light therapy session, core temperatures increase dramatically. In response, the body has to work harder to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat while increasing heart rate (50-75%), cardiac output and metabolic rate and burning more calories, leading to more weight loss. In addition, blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.2
Therefore, regular use of our saunas may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercise, such as cardiovascular conditioning. Infrared light therapy is the ONLY natural and healthy way to burn calories without exercising.
That’s right, visiting 3 Degrees for infrared weight loss therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout. Without any effort!
