Jennifer Aniston is one of the Hollywood A-listers who have managed to keep their youthful looks through the years. In a recent Forbes article, the famous actress dished out that, besides consuming sufficient water and getting enough rest, using infrared saunas has helped her maintain a younger-looking complexion. Jennifer attributes her glowing skin partly to infrared saunas, which she says allows for cell rejuvenation and detoxification. This, along with a healthy lifestyle, has given her that perennially youthful glow.

Gwyneth Paltrow is among the A-list proponents of strict health and fitness regimes, and she continuously shares effective ways of shedding unwanted pounds and ridding the body of harmful toxins. Back in January, she introduced another detoxification plan for people who had overindulged over the holidays. Her detox plan involved flax seeds, safflower oil, dandelion leaves, and, more importantly, infrared sauna sessions. Nutritionists, on the other hand, advised that this diet may leave people unable to sleep due to hunger. Her detox plan is just among the many popular ways that people follow to help their bodies get rid of damaging and harmful toxins. Aside from Paltrow’s detox plan, many are turning to ultra-low-cal juice fasts for detoxification. Nourishing your body with nothing but juices, however, can only hurt your overall health in the long run.
When you’re thinking of building a sauna in your home, there are some important choices to make, ranging from whether to install an infrared sauna or a traditional one, to how big the sauna will be. The convenience of owning your own sauna has great benefits but you have to be sure that you’re building just the right size and purpose for your use. Too big and it’s just wasted space; too cramped will make you uncomfortable, which defeats one of the purposes of owning one—to feel relaxed. Here are a few factors to consider when thinking of adding a sauna to your home. The Basic Requirements At the most basic, your sauna will need a space that is at least seven feet high. The best shape a sauna can have is that of a square; this is to ensure a balanced temperature all throughout the room. If you want to be able to lie down in the sauna, a six foot width is recommended. This recommended size is for an average sauna that can handle two to three people.
You’re probably already aware of the immense benefits associated with regular workouts—the weight loss, the intense sweating, and other health benefits. Regrettably, not everyone has the time to go to the gym, and even those who do probably have not enough time to work up a really good sweat. As a time-efficient alternative, saunas became a popular choice since you could burn up to 600 calories in just one twenty-minute session. Now imagine how much more time you could save if you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home to lose all those calories.

Not many people know it, but infrared radiation also has therapeutic effects on the human body. Infrared energy is used for detecting or monitoring objects on Earth and in outer space that generate temperatures beyond visible light. This is the same energy used in the popular detox therapy people get from infrared sauna heaters. Healthy Radiation In the electromagnetic spectrum, infrared radiation has wavelengths that are a bit longer than visible light and may only be seen through special devices, like digital cameras or cell phones. The infrared wave is divided into three segments referred to as near, middle, and far infrared. Far infrared (FIR) is the considered the “healthy” segment and the one used to discharge the body of harmful toxins.
When considering various home additions, you’re not likely to look at a standard home infrared sauna as a primary investment—unless, of course, you’re Finnish and are used to saunas all your life (in Finland, there are actually more saunas than cars). Yes, a sauna must surely be a significant investment, but what exactly makes it so? Relaxation The world today is increasingly getting stressful, which makes several moments of relaxation a very welcome break. Since establishments, like spa salons, are getting busier by the minute with more patrons, investing in something like a sauna sounds much more appealing. Perhaps one of the best—and the most immediate—perks of in-home saunas is having a rejuvenation sanctuary within the comfort of your home.

Concerns about the safety of infrared saunas continue to be raised, despite the fact that they’ve been around for quite some time and many people continue to use them. Common inquiries include: Is frequent exposure to infrared or EMF dangerous? Or can sauna use actually be dangerous to people?
Buying a low EMF far infrared sauna may be one of the best wellness investments you’ll ever make. Think about it: you can have your own piece of “hot paradise” without having to sign up for sauna services at a spa practice somewhere in town, and reap a raft of health benefits in the process. While many manufacturers take pride in their sauna units and will even help you set it up at home, it pays for you to learn how to take care of it on your own.

Boxing will always be one of those sports where you can get really physical in a highly controlled environment. From a health perspective, this allows you to develop muscle mass and burn off the calories very effectively. When paired with infrared sauna sessions, a boxing exercise routine can yield even more healthful dividends.
