Infrared Sauna Benefits to an Insomniacby Sarah Smart
There are many treatments and solutions for insomnia, but a more recently developed one is the infrared sauna; Dr Masao Nakamura of the Medical Clinic in Japan reports success with the use of infrared heat treatments on insomniac sufferers.
Infrared treatments and saunas have been developing over the last 25 years and extensive research has been carried out in countries such as Japan and China into the medical benefits of infrared saunas. No longer do you have to book into a luxury hotel, gym, or holiday resort abroad, to benefit; but the luxury pastime can be experienced in your own home. Japan even has their own ‘infrared society’ producing results to support the outstanding health benefits of infrared therapy as a method of healing. The Japanese are keen users of far infrared saunas and they have done vast amounts of research to check its safety and its use in promoting health and healing.
Infra-red saunas will leave you feeling invigorated, rather than depleted like conventional saunas. There are many physiological effects of infrared sauna heat therapy; it relaxes muscles, circulates the blood, stimulates the heart and releases endorphins; which results in a feeling of invigoration.
Therefore, people feel less stressed after an infrared sauna session and have reported their sleep has been improved after a session.
The frequencies used in the infrared radiation spectrum, are the ones most effective in penetrating the human body, and so will have the greatest beneficial effect; this research is supported by NASA.
It is the frequency used in infrared saunas that is best able to produce the warmth necessary to expand capillaries and stimulate blood circulation.
Infrared Rays penetrate deeply and can warm our bodies from the inside out, stimulating our system. This allows tired muscles to relax and provides deep and soothing comfort. This is a form of relaxation which is essential for unwinding before sleeping; so that the body is not stressed and is able to sleep.
