Infrared heat may temporarily ease joint pain and stiffness. Increased thermal energy to the joints may promote a temporary increase in blood flow. Increased thermal energy may reduce stiffness and increase range of motion.
“It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals, including heavy metals.
Weight loss & Increase metabolism
Increasing core body heat can increase calorie burn, similar to exercise. Infrared saunas also help with the elimination of toxins that cause fat storage

Muscle pain relief
Muscles relax best when tissues are warm for greater flexibility and range of motion. Infrared heat may help relieve muscle tension by increasing the thermal energy in your muscles.
Boost the immune system
Heating the body from inside can improve the function of the immune system just like fever can. Therefore, regular sauna use can help reduce the incidences of cold and flu, or even help you recover faster.
