Relaxation & Stress Relief

May 25, 2020

Using Infrared Saunas Can Help Reduce Stress

Using infared therapy helps with stress relief, hormone balance, improved sleep, and to relax your mind. Anxiety and depression, chronic stress, or poorly managed stress, may lead to elevated cortisol levels that stimulate your appetite, with the end result being weight gain. 

Infrared sauna use can help you relax and relieve stress all in the comfort of your own private sauna suite.

Regular sauna use helps release endorphins which trigger positive feelings. It does this by triggering your brain through natural melatonin that your body uses to prepare to sleep.

Stress is often a hidden contributor to the struggle with losing weight. High stress levels contribute to the fat we hold in our mid-sections, especially the belly, hips, and thighs which makes us feel sluggish and quite literally weighs us down. When stress contributes to weight loss, it cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise alone.

By using a far infrared sauna as part of a comprehensive weight loss plan, you may experience a noticeable difference in how you look and feel and you will notice your stress melt away.

Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna will help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed.

Many of our Sauna clients comment on how much they look forward to their Sauna session, as it’s a great time to get away and release any built-up tension and stress. 

Infrared Saunas have also been shown to affect the autonomic nervous system putting you in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state allowing your body to heal.

Infrared Light Therapy

Infrared light is the invisible part of natural sunlight. Although it is actually light, it is experienced as soothing, warm radiant heat (and sometimes referred to as infrared heat).

Whole Body Vibration

By far the most popular new addition to the passive exercise category is whole-body vibration or WBV.


Light Therapy has been valued throughout history as a remarkable source of healing and all our saunas come equipped with it.
