Infrared saunas aren’t just an effective means for healing and preventing injuries, they also benefit pain management. Dealing with pain management can be tough and often stops you from staying active and feeling energized. Whether you are dealing with a chronic disease like Lyme or fibromyalgia, or are healing from an old injury, infrared sauna benefits pain management to the core. Infrared light penetrates human tissue, after all.
Infrared Sauna Benefits: Kick Pain to the Curb
One of the most beneficial reasons to take a trip to our infrared sauna is the natural pain relief associated with infrared sauna therapy.
“Infrared 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 heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.”
In addition to decreasing pain and muscle spasms, infrared saunas can help lower blood pressure and increase circulation. Lower blood pressure means a healthy heart so that you can stay active. Infrared sauna benefits circulation as well. If you are dealing with pain management it is sometimes hard to stay active and get your blood flowing the same way a brisk walk or jog might. In order to keep cells healthy, it is important that they get a healthy blood flow. If your pain doesn’t allow you to exercise as much as you’d hope, you’re in luck. “Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use—especially in the mid infrared range—can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.”
Heal Wounds Faster and Recover from Illness With Infrared Sauna Therapy
Pain management doesn’t have to be chronic. Another way that infrared sauna benefits pain is by encouraging wound healing. “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.”
No one likes being sick and sometimes those colds can linger. Did you know that infrared sauna therapy benefits your cell health and overall immunity? Stimulating the circulatory system and oxygenating the body’s cells, infrared sauna visits allow toxins to exit your body which improves your overall cell health.

“My physician suggested I used infrared sauna to treat some ongoing issues. I have found infrared to be far more comfortable than traditional sauna. I don’t pretend to understand the science behind it, but am grateful for an affordable and accessible means via Strength & Vitality Wellness Center to help my body heal and even make my skin look better. The practice exudes integrity.” – Mandy
