Health Mate saunas are the largest and oldest infrared sauna manufacturer. Their infrared saunas are very portable and come in sizes from 2 to 5 people. Because infrared rays penetrate the body over 1-1/2 inches throughout conversion, there is a deep heating effect in the muscle tissues and internal organs without giving too much burden to our heart. Our body reacts to the increased heating through the natural cooling process of perspiring. Through the perspiration process, acid and waste residue like toxins, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and the potentially carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells (especially zinc, lead, nickel, cadmium, etc).
The deep penetrating heat also stimulates the heart to send more blood to the body cells to increase blood circulation, which improves many symptoms. Over the last 25 years, Japanese and Chinese researchers and clinicians have completed extensive research on infrared treatments and report many beneficial findings. While the moisture on the surface of the skin evaporates and thus cools the body, a number of other changes occur in the body to release the heat as quickly as possible. The heart beats harder and faster, pumping more blood through the dilated blood vessels, thus achieving the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Our body expends energy to produce sweat (1 gm sweat requires 0.586 kcal) in a sauna session. This is equivalent to running 10-15 kms. While this water weight loss can be regained by drinking water, the calories consumed will not.How Safe Is It?
