Infrared Sauna Blankets: 7 New Reasons To Sweat
Detox, enhance your mood, burn calories, and get glowing skin: what you need to know about Celluvac’s Infrared Sauna Blankets.
Infrared is all the rage. Celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, and Lady Gaga endorse the infrared sauna effect to improve sleep, reduce stress and increase energy. And, importantly for the incredible effect it has on the skin.
1. USING THE INFRARED SAUNA BLANKET TO REMOVE TOXINS
Sweating, and even more so with infrared, aids the body in removing toxins, like heavy metals. Far-infrared is a type of warmth generated by light causing the body to produce a deep sweat. The sensation is similar to being outside on a sunny day. When stimulated the sweat glands help flush toxins from the body.
A 2012 study* found that sweating plays an important role in expelling heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic from the body because they dissolve readily in water. *Sears ME, Kerr KJ, Bray RI.

2. BURN CALORIES
Burn up to 900 calories in an hour-long session. Weight loss: The heat generated by infrared sauna blankets can help increase metabolic rate, which can aid in weight loss. The blankets have been shown to help improve the appearance of cellulite by increasing circulation and reducing inflammation.
3. REDUCE MUSCLE & JOINT PAIN
Heat from infrared sauna blankets can help to reduce muscle tension and relieve pain, making them a popular choice among athletes and people with chronic pain conditions. They were used by NASA to help astronauts deal with muscle atrophy during space travel.
4.IMPROVE SLEEP QUALITY
By relaxing tense muscles and increasing blood flow, the body and mind is soothed releasing endorphins, the natural chemicals in the body that promote feelings of relaxation and well-being.
5.PROMOTE GLOWING SKIN
Far infrared rays may help deliver a deep detoxifying sweat and allow your body to push out those environmental toxins. Your heart rate should increase to the pace of a light jog and which leaves you with healthy soft glowing skin.
6. SPEED RECOVERY TIME AFTER TRAINING
In addition to increasing blood flow, infrared sauna therapy may also help reduce inflammation by promoting the release of heat shock proteins. Heat shock proteins are responsible for repairing damaged cells and reducing inflammation. With the release of these proteins, infrared sauna therapy speeds up the healing process after exercise-induced muscle damage.
7. BOOST CIRCULATION
The heat from infrared sauna blankets can help to increase blood flow, which can improve overall cardiovascular health.
Infrared sauna blankets are a new innovation in the world of wellness. They are designed to provide the benefits of an infrared sauna in a compact, portable, and easy-to-use package. The blankets use infrared technology to generate heat, which helps to increase blood flow, reduce muscle tension, and detoxify the body.
Unlike traditional saunas, which require a dedicated space and a large investment, infrared sauna blankets can be used at home – you can even travel with them. This makes them accessible to a those who may not have the time, space, or budget to invest in a traditional sauna.
