Infrared saunas use infrared light to warm the body directly without heating the air around you. Along with boosting your immune system, infrared saunas have benefits such as improving heart health, aiding muscle recovery, and promoting weight loss. The heat and warmth from the infrared bulbs can help soothe tense or sore muscles, encourage relaxation, and trigger the release of endorphins that can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
According to Sunlighten, a world leader in infrared sauna manufacturing, "Wellness is within reach because infrared’s healing light energy has been proven in many ways to help our bodies feel better... Infrared is invisible. The evidence is in how your body responds to it. Infrared’s healing rays are felt on our skin as warmth and are absorbed by our bodies to help them detoxify, relax, improve circulation, recover faster, sleep better, age well, and help us feel good."
Chromotherapy, also known as color therapy, is a holistic healing practice that uses the energy of colors to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual health. It can be used in conjunction with infrared saunas to help improve various health issues such as depression, anxiety, inflammation, and digestive problems.
Whether used separately or together, you will find that infrared saunas and chromotherapy can be valuable additions to your physical and mental health self-care routines.
