Why use an Infrared Sauna


Our new look Seagrass Wellbeing Centre is now open. Our new technology based treatments now include our Infrared Sauna and PEMF Therapy Bed.

Infrared saunas are a great way to relax and detoxify your body, promote healthy weight loss, increase metabolism and boost energy levels. They can also help you sleep better at night and feel more refreshed in the morning. Here is everything you need to know about infrared saunas so that you can decide if your visit to Seagrass Wellbeing Centre will include a session.


Burn more calories in a 40 min infrared sauna session

The infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses infrared light to produce heat. An infrared heating panel sends waves at your body, which are absorbed into the skin and converted into energy. This causes blood vessels to expand, raising blood flow throughout the body. As more blood flows through your system, toxins are flushed out into your lymphatic system for cleansing instead of remaining in their usual hiding spots (like fat cells).

Infrared saunas can help you lose weight by burning 600-900 calories in 40 minutes without taking in any extra food or water! But that’s not all! They also have these other benefits:

  • Improve circulation

  • Relieve stress and anxiety

  • Regulate metabolism

  • Reduce inflammation

Sleep better at night and feel more refreshed in the morning

If you are like most people, you often struggle to fall asleep at night and wake up feeling groggy. This is because your body has not had enough time to rest and recharge. An infrared sauna can help improve the quality of your sleep by using the same process as a traditional sauna—sweating out toxins from the body. The heat from an infrared sauna helps increase melatonin levels and serotonin levels, which helps you fall asleep faster and have more vivid dreams when you do drift off.

When we sweat in a traditional sauna, our bodies begin to produce endorphins that make us feel relaxed after we leave the room or shower (depending on how long we stay). An infrared sauna produces similar effects with less effort—it takes less time to reach temperatures where sweat begins forming on your skin than it does with a conventional hot tub or steam room, so there's less of a chance that you'll overheat yourself while relaxing inside one!



No need to shower after a sauna session

The reason for this is that infrared saunas are believed to keep toxins in the body from building up. The heat from an infrared sauna helps your body sweat out toxins, meaning you don't have to shower afterward. This can help save time on your day off and it also helps you avoid exposing yourself to harsh chemicals in regular bathing products.

Relaxes, warms and soothes tired, achy muscles and joints.

Infrared saunas can also help relax and warm up your body, which helps reduce stress and tension, as well as soothe aching muscles and joints. In fact, infrared therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body by increasing blood flow to the area where it is being used.

Boosts your immune system by increasing white blood cell count

An infrared sauna will increase your white blood cell count, which is the body's defense against bacteria and viruses. An increase in white blood cells leads to an increase in immune function and decreases inflammation throughout the body. This helps you stay healthy, feel less pain, and sleep better at night.

Includes anti-aging benefits like more collagen production, reducing cellulite and tightening skin

Infrared sauna sessions also help your skin by boosting the production of collagen, which makes the skin look firmer and tighter. They can also reduce cellulite and make it easier to lose weight. The heat from an infrared sauna helps to increase circulation in your body, which can improve your overall health as well as relieve pain from joint or muscle issues.

Provides stress relief and improves mood.

  • Provides stress relief and improves mood. An infrared sauna is a great way to relax, unwind, and reduce stress. It can help you sleep better at night too—the sauna's heat stimulates the circulation of blood throughout your body, which in turn helps you feel more relaxed and calm.

  • Promotes cardiovascular health. With regular use of an infrared sauna, your blood vessels will become wider, allowing for increased blood flow throughout your body. This promotes healthy cardiovascular function and overall well-being!

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) can be treated with infrared light therapy by helping the body produce more of the feel-good hormones serotonin and melatonin.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a form of depression that is related to the lack of sunlight during the winter months. The symptoms are similar to those of major depressive disorder, such as feelings of sadness, fatigue and mood swings. In addition, SAD sufferers often experience weight gain or loss and sleep problems.

In order to treat this condition (which affects an estimated 10-20% of Americans), doctors recommend light therapy in the form of bright light exposure during waking hours or via full spectrum lamps at home while sleeping. While these treatments have been shown to be effective in some cases, they do not provide relief for everyone with SAD symptoms—and they can also cause side effects like eye strain or headaches if used improperly. Infrared saunas offer an alternative treatment for people who don’t respond well to artificial lighting methods but still want relief from their seasonal depression symptoms without resorting back again towards prescription medications like antidepressants which may have unwanted side effects themselves over time when taken repeatedly long term without regular breaks between dosages taken."

Promotes cardiovascular health as it can increase heart rate and improve circulation for people suffering from cardiovascular disease.

Infrared saunas also promote cardiovascular health. They can increase heart rate and improve circulation for people suffering from cardiovascular disease. This is because the heat from infrared saunas increases blood flow to organs and muscles, which helps remove toxins and reduce inflammation in the body. Infrared saunas also help relieve stress by lowering cortisol levels, one of our stress hormones. Studies have shown that infrared saunas can help improve sleep quality as well!

Increases metabolism, leading to an increased rate of burning calories. You can burn approximately 200 calories in a 20-minute session!

Another great benefit of infrared sauna use is that it increases metabolism, which in turn leads to an increased rate of burning calories. In fact, you can burn approximately 200 calories in a 20-minute session!

Detoxes your body - eliminates up to 20% more toxins than traditional steam saunas. It is difficult to sweat out toxins in high heat, which is why infrared is better suited for this purpose.

All of this, combined with infrared saunas' ability to detox your body, makes them a great choice for those who want to get healthier. But what exactly is detoxing? Detoxing refers to ridding your body of toxins that may have built up over time. These toxins can come from food and drink (such as heavy metals), poor lifestyle choices (smoking or drug use), or even the environment around us (pollution).

Toxins are eliminated when you sweat them out—and infrared saunas are great at making you sweat! They do so by heating up your body's surface temperature while simultaneously using infrared light to penetrate deep into the layers beneath it—allowing even more perspiration than traditional steam saunas can produce. This means that infrared saunas help eliminate up to 20% more toxins than conventional steam rooms do!

Help boost your immune system, promote healthy weight loss and remove toxins from your body.

Infrared saunas are very beneficial for your body as they help boost your immune system, promote healthy weight loss and remove toxins from your body. Saunas are an ancient way of cleansing the body, which has been used in cultures around the world. Infrared saunas offer a safer and healthier way to cleanse than traditional saunas because they emit infrared light that penetrates deeper into human tissue than other types of radiation do. This allows them to heat not just the surface of the skin but also deeper layers of muscle tissue, fat cells and even into organs like your liver or kidneys where it can help remove stored waste products like toxic metals such as mercury or lead that may be impairing organ function.


Infrared saunas are an easy way to stay healthy and feel great. They're also a great way to unwind after a long day at work or school, which makes them perfect for anyone who has a stressful lifestyle. They can help improve your mood while providing many other benefits like increased circulation and metabolism. If you would like to book yourself an Infrared Sauna session then you can book here.
