Is infrared sauna therapy a safe method for weight loss?
Healthy amounts of exercise and feeding your body nutritious meals that support your health are necessary. Infrared sauna therapy is a safe and healthy effective service to aid weight loss. It also provides detoxification from heavy metals and toxins, clearer skin and faster muscle recovery.

It has been shown to have numerous biological processes which can help aid weight loss. These include enhancing metabolism and reducing fat deposition - this will help aid weight loss but also help inhibit weight gain. Several studies have shown a reduction in peoples waist circumference, weight and visceral fat through infrared sauna use. Studies show that a person’s energy expenditure during a sauna was approximately 240 kilojoules for 10 mins, this was then further improved if exercise was performed prior to the sauna therapy where 10 mins then produced approximately 480 kilojoules expenditure.

The relaxation you find in the infrared sauna will also gently coax the body out of stress response back to states of relaxation where energy can be directed inward to optimize cellular function.
How does contrast water therapy aid weight loss?
Contrast bathing and cold-water immersion can also aid in weight loss through several processes. By converting white fat to brown fat. Brown fat (important because it generates fuel (heat) is more tightly packed compared to white fat (adipose fat, generally formed due to consuming excess calories) and can be broken down to produce heat. This means your fat will take up less space, appearing slimmer and will be burned from simply being exposed to the cold. Basal metabolic rate has also been shown to be increased after cold exposure (6-week time frame) meaning that you burn more calories while at rest.

Please keep in mind, that like regular exercise and a healthy diet, to maintain ideal weight through infrared sauna therapy or contrast water therapy, it should become a regular practice. For best results, use your infrared sauna 4-7 times per week. Be sure to drink plenty of water to stay well hydrated.

Overall using one or a combination of these services, in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise, will put you on the right track to your weight loss goals.
