Infrared Sauna for Muscle Recovery & Athletic Performance

Did you know that Infrared Saunas can help you with your muscle recovery and athletic performance? If you're not familiar with Infrared Saunas, they are basically like regular saunas but instead of heating the air around you, it uses infrared rays to heat the body itself.
Muscle Recovery
Utilizing an Infrared Sauna promotes an increase in blood flow to muscles.  The gentle heat from the Infrared Sauna helps dilate your blood vessels and increase your core body temperature. This thermal effect widens your blood vessels, helps to increase blood circulation and flow.  Increased blood circulation helps muscles recover quicker by carrying away metabolic waste products and supplying muscles with oxygen-rich blood. As pain is diminished and range of motion is increased, the deep heat aids in the treatment and repair of muscle and soft tissue injuries.
Improving Athletic Performance
When a person works out hard, tiny tears can form in their muscles. When these tears heal, the muscles grow and become stronger. The heat from the Infrared Sauna increases blood circulation to torn muscles, allowing them to better absorb oxygen which then results in faster recovery time after exercise. 
So, whether you want to improve you athletic performance or reduce muscles aches and pains, an Infrared Saunas session can help. Just keep in mind that the heat from an Infrared Sauna causes you to sweat, which can lead to dehydration. Keep your fluids up after you’ve finished!
