Healthy, healing heat!
Although saunas have been popular for centuries they are not often thought of as treatments in traditional medicine. Saunas can be unbearably hot, steamy rooms in which breathing can be difficult. However, the advanced saunas at Progressive Medical Center produce soothing, healthy heat. Infrared technology brings forth a therapeutic sauna treatment that is not only relaxing but also proven beneficial for your health which is why we offer it as a standard treatment.
Health benefits include:
- Pain relief
- Weight control
- Skin purification
Why is Far-Infrared better? Infrared wavelengths are the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum consisting of near (NIR), mid (MIR) and far (FIR) rays. These rays have the ability to penetrate human tissue, this characteristic makes infrared beneficial because it heats the body directly at the core rather than simply warming the air. This results in in a deep, body cleansing detoxification at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside. And as an added bonus, the temperature doesn’t have to be as hot to receive the health benefits!
Is Infrared Heat Safe?
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. Infrared’s gentle heat is even used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
