Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas

Updated: Jun 29, 2023

Give your heart some love.

You want to take care of your heart. Good circulation is critical to your overall health. We understand how hard it can be to make the lifestyle changes you need to fight genetics. Or simply to stay on track with all the things you need to do to keep your heart healthy as long as possible.

Ivins Chiropractic makes it pleasant and effective, and science supports using an infrared sauna regularly as part of a healthy lifestyle can be good for your heart.

Get a passive cardio workout while you relax.

Infrared sauna sessions raise your heart rate and increase circulation. This replicates a cardiovascular workout we term “passive cardio.” In fact, blood flow during infrared sauna use may rise from a normal rate of 5 litres/minute to up to 12 litres/minute. Your heart is a muscle; working it makes it stronger. A stronger cardiovascular system helps capillaries deliver more oxygen to muscle cells. For people with injuries or conditions precluding them from cardio activity, Infrared saunas can help serve as an alternative for needed cardio benefits.

Infrared saunas benefit blood pressure and circulation.

Infrared saunas have been clinically shown to provide one of the best, natural ways to help temporarily lower blood pressure. In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, Infrared heaters were shown to temporarily lower blood pressure through a program of 30-minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. The study concluded that infrared sauna sessions, as part of a healthy lifestyle, dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation needed for healthy blood pressure.
