A sauna at the spa used to be the pinnacle of luxury, and for those who could afford it a sauna treatment offered great health benefits. Fortunately, saunas are more accessible nowadays, especially with near infrared and far infrared sauna systems that can be installed at home and more gyms making saunas available as well. If you haven't tried sauna therapy yet, it could be well worth the effort to improve the look of your skin, help you lose weight, fight off infection, detox the body from all sorts of toxins, and generally improve your health.
A traditional wet sauna or dry sauna treatment can encourage the body to sweat out bodily wastes and toxins. It also lightly stresses the cardiovascular system for better heart health and blood vessels. Near infrared and far infrared saunas have much the same positive health effects, with some variations.
Natural Cures: In addition to detoxing and the other health benefits mentioned above, sauna therapy is said to be good to cure a hangover, treat arthritis, reduce chemical sensitivity, and encourage healing from tissue damage or infections.
I was wondering if you could help me with this question regarding the infrared sauna, when one get's done using a infrared sauna can one simply just dry themselves off with a towel and be on their way or do you have to take a shower when you're done using it?

Hi everyone, I've read about the benefits of infrared saunas and was wondering what your experience is/do you use the sauna to treat or help with any particular condition? I have chronic pain (trigeminal neuralgia and TMJ Disorder), and am looking for ways how to boost my energy and feel healthier again. Thank you.Replied by Lisa
