Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows the infrared sauna benefits using a infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.
The near infrared wavelengths are the most effective wavelengths for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.
Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevent infection.
“Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.” -Dr. Rachel West
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna benefits include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
We spent the week cleaning the garage, hiring an electrician for a 120 volt plug and getting ready for delivery (around December 15). Along with cleaning the cupboards in the garage we cleaned out the kitchen cupboards and are very organized!
We hope this helps Linda with pain and Karen with sleep- Merry Christmas!
When we think of gifts we want for our family- We think…
We want them to be healthy
We want them to be happy
We want them to have time together
We want them to be stress-free
We want them to be debt- free
We want them to have good memories to last a life time and to cherish when some are no longer here. And yet as the Christmas season rolls around we start making those very long lists of to-dos and to -buys and it strips the joy out of the season.
This next Christmas we would like to pass on a new tradition of a stress- free-, debt free, memory making and FUN Christmas:
We will continue to celebrate Christmas with our immediate families in the traditions we have each set up over the years. We should continuing celebrating with our families and doing the things we enjoy.
But when it comes to our gift giving we are going to simplify. No more gifts– or rather, just one simple gift… a photograph of your choice that YOU want to share with everyone sent with a note or letter to wish the family a very Merry Christmas. You can share your family as a portrait (Mom and Dad will want an 8×10 lol), you can share a fun picture you took on a vacation, you can share whatever you want. Have fun with it. You can also get your children involved: Delaney may share herself in a show, Kelsie playing softball, Silvie at the beach, Katie can share a picture with Robbie and Nick with his family. Beth and Erin can share the good things happening in their neck of the woods as can Mattie and Darian. Seeing everyone with smiles on their faces makes being together real, and that is what Christmas is all about.
No one worries about money. You don’t need to be told that holidays get pretty expensive. So when you take the cost of how many presents you typically buy out of the equation, budget anxiety reduces substantially. Also we avoid giving the bulk of our Christmas budget to UPS, Post Office and or Fed Ex !!
Everyone pays more attention to one another. It’s amazing what happens to your focal point when your hands are idle. You look up and notice the people around you, and you engage in real, uninterrupted conversation with them. For many families, the opportunity for this kind of connection only comes around a couple of times a year, so it’s a gift in itself to fully take advantage of. Everyone walks away with beautiful new memories. Those experiences and the memories they create become some of the most enduring gifts any of us will receive.
