There’s no denying that maintaining a healthy weight is one of the keys to overall health and wellness, but chronic pain, stress, injury, and body toxicity can all hinder your exercise routine. What if there was a way to substantially increase your heart rate and cardiovascular activity while also lowering your stress, relieving pain, and detoxifying the body? It’s not magic, it’s infrared light therapy, and Thrive Massage and Wellness is the first spa in Columbus to offer this incredible healing modality.
Using infrared light therapy for weight loss is clinically proven to decrease waist circumference and lower weight. How does it work? Well, the short answer is that one infrared light therapy session can burn up to 600 calories. In essence, it’s a passive cardiovascular workout. The longer answer has to do with the chain reaction of events within the body when you raise the core body temperature using far- and mid-infrared heat found in only our infrared light therapy spas. As your temperature rises, your body uses energy to cool the body back down. There is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Blood flow is reported to rise from a normal 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. http://www.sunlighten.com/blogs/slimming-down-your-waist-line-through-sauna-weight-loss/
Additionally, infrared therapy can minimize injury downtime and expedite muscle recovery.
Infrared heat can greatly benefit the sore, damaged or tired muscles of an athlete. The heat penetrates the muscles, increasing blood circulation and assisting muscle repair. Infrared heat therapy will also help reduce lactic acids, allowing tight and worn-out muscles to relax. http://www.sunlighten.com/blogs/losing-weight-and-keeping-fit-with-infrared-sauna/
A cardio bump and muscle recovery are only the beginning. Add in the detoxification benefits, reduction of inflammation, improved circulation and stress relief, and you are well on your way to mental and physical vitality.
