In the past 20 years, an upsurge of the number of obese adults in the United States is alarming to health officials. The enormity of this problem has prompted San Tanning Spa owner Char Benton to publicly endorse infrared sauna treatment in a battle against obesity.
“Infrared sauna treatment is a solution to the obesity problem because it directly burns calories, thus helping control weight. This treatment is also known to lower blood pressure and enhance blood circulation, making it quite effective in promoting overall well-being,” Benton says.
Over one-third of the adult population in the United States is obese. According to the Centers for Disease Prevention (CDC), these people are prone to acquire obesity-related diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that a person can lose as much calories in just one infrared sauna session as when jogging for 30 minutes. Studies indicate that 30 minutes in an infrared sauna can burn over 600 calories.
This type of sauna promotes cardiovascular fitness and increased heart and metabolic rates. In addition, the rise in cardiac output during the cooling off period ensures the dropping of the diastolic blood pressure for enhanced cardiovascular health.
Constant infrared sauna treatments repairs diminished functions of the blood vessels among patients with high cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension. The infrared sauna even works to prevent arteriosclerosis.
Benton underscores, “All the negative effects obesity can bring to the body can be prevented through the infrared sauna. It has the capability to enhance metabolism, remove wastes and toxins from the body and boost the immune system.”
She points out, “Usually obese people also suffer from arthritis because of their excess weight. The infrared sauna’s ability to provide relief of stiffness and pain of joints makes this treatment a must for everyone’s to-do list when going to the spa.”
Other benefits provided by infrared sauna include skin tone and elasticity enhancement as well as reduction of fatigue and stress. It has been proven to help in treating skin conditions including psoriasis, acne and eczema, among others.
