Infrared sauna

Infrared sauna therapy can be a powerful tool for recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. This type of therapy helps the body to detoxify, aids in the relief of physical symptoms associated with withdrawal, and supports relaxation and stress reduction. At Honu House Hawaii, infrared saunas are incorporated into our alternative treatment program alongside other therapies, such as acupuncture and meditation. Regular sessions can help individuals deal with cravings healthily, increase overall energy levels, and feel calm and balanced as they continue their journey to long-term recovery. During a session in an infrared sauna, infrared heat penetrates deeper layers of tissue, helping to reduce pain, fatigue, and inflammation while promoting relaxation and improved sleep quality.

What is an infrared sauna?

An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light that is absorbed by the skin, producing heat and causing you to sweat. This type of sauna differs from traditional saunas that use steam or hot rocks to produce heat. Infrared saunas are popular because they offer a more gentle, relaxing experience that still produces a good sweat session.

What are the benefits of using an infrared sauna?

Infrared saunas offer a range of potential benefits, including detoxification, relaxation, improved circulation, pain relief, and weight loss. The heat produced by the infrared sauna can help your body release toxins, reduce muscle tension, and even burn calories. Regular use of infrared saunas has also been shown to improve skin health and boost the immune system.

How hot does an infrared sauna get?

An infrared sauna typically operates at a lower temperature than a traditional sauna, with temperatures ranging from 120-140°F. However, because the heat is more evenly distributed, you may still experience a good sweat session without feeling overheated. The lower temperature can also make infrared saunas a more comfortable option for people who don’t enjoy the intense heat of traditional saunas.

How long should you stay in an infrared sauna?

The length of time you should spend in an infrared sauna depends on your personal tolerance and the intensity of the sauna. Beginners should start with 10-15 minutes and gradually increase their time up to 30-40 minutes. It’s important to stay hydrated and listen to your body. If you start feeling dizzy or overheated, it’s time to get out.

Are there any risks associated with using an infrared sauna?

While generally safe, there are some risks associated with using an infrared sauna. These include dehydration, overheating, and low blood pressure. It’s important to stay hydrated, listen to your body, and talk to your doctor before using an infrared sauna if you have any medical conditions. You should also avoid using an infrared sauna if you are pregnant or have an implanted medical device. With proper precautions, however, infrared saunas can be a safe and enjoyable way to relax and improve your health.
