STRESS & FATIGUE
Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of an infrared sauna will help one feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed. Infrared sauna use can increase beta-endorphins in blood and lead to the feeling of euphoria, similar to a “runners high”. Heat therapy also increases the hormone BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). Studies have shown that low BDNF levels play a role in anxiety and depression. Infrared saunas have also been shown to affect the autonomic nervous system by putting the user in the parasympathetic (rest and digest) state, allowing the mind & body to heal and restore itself. Furthermore, research has shown that regular sauna usage can help promote a deeper, more relaxed sleep.
