The Benefits of Infrared Saunas 800 341 Eric Iverson

Infrared saunas are a powerful recovery tool—and they make you feel absolutely amazing. Our infrared sauna provides an easy way to boost the recovery process and improve overall health. The benefits surpass those of traditional saunas and steam rooms while offering a much more relaxing, comfortable experience.

Infrared saunas emit light waves that create heat and raise your temperature so that you sweat like crazy. The heat penetrates muscles and fat tissue more deeply than the warm air a traditional sauna produces so that you experience greater benefits in a shorter duration. An infrared session is the perfect way to relax, recover and improve both mental and physical performance.

Here are just a few of the incredible benefits of infrared saunas.

Dynamic Warmup

Skip the jumping jacks! A session in the infrared sauna is equivalent to a dynamic warmup. The infrared rays produce penetrating heat that boosts circulation and directly permeates our red blood cells the same way active movement does. Your body is working while you’re literally relaxing. It’s one of the many ways Zone Flow™ helps you work smarter, not harder.


The penetrating heat infrared emits stimulates sweat glands to promotes deep, cellular sweating that triggers the release of the toxins. Consistent infrared sessions detoxify heavy metals from the body, such as mercury, lead, nickel and cadmium, as well as nicotine, alcohol and sulfuric acid.

Weight Loss

Infrared saunas burn an insane amount of calories! Research shared in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that nearly 600 calories can be burned in a 30-minute infrared session.  A session raises your core temperature, which effectively stimulates metabolic activity and elevates your heart rate. Your body is forced to work harder to reduce its core temperature or keep up with the boosted heart rate. This blasts a ton of calories to promote weight loss and muscle toning.

Pain Relief and Healing

Another stellar infrared benefit is that it relieves pain and helps heal injuries by reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow. Whether you’re sore from exercise or suffering from joint pain, arthritis or an injury, infrared eases pain and speeds up recovery. We have members of all ages with a wide-range of recovery goals and conditions—from muscle fatigue and back pain to torn rotator cuffs and sciatica.

Beauty and Anti-Aging

Sweating in an infrared sauna detoxes and unclogs the pores, resulting in smoother, clearer, tighter skin. The elevation in heart rate, improved circulation and better oxygen flow stimulates collagen production. As a result, you’ll experience improved skin tone, firmness and elasticity, which helps diminish the appearance of cellulite. The decreased inflammation also helps to heal redness, acne and other skin conditions.

Boosted Immunity

When the body’s core temperature is raised by infrared rays, it simulates a fever. This triggers the body’s mechanism for boosting immunity like it would in the presence of infection. Coupled with the detox infrared provides, this strengthens immunity and improves overall health.

Heart Health

Studies conducted by the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio and the Japanese Circulation Society all reported that infrared heat benefits cardiovascular health. The deep sweating that infrared promotes has a natural diuretic effect that lowers blood pressure and reduces stress on the heart. The elevated heart rate has similar benefits to what is experienced during moderate exercise.


Infrared is much gentler and more relaxing than the traditional sauna experience. The heat from infrared saunas relax the muscles and reduce stress without causing discomfort.
