If You Haven’t Tried an Infrared Sauna Yet, Here’s Why You Should

Have you tried an infrared sauna? If not, you should. Now, if you're picturing a traditional sauna and thinking, "No way, I'm already dealing with hot flashes!", hear me out. Infrared saunas are a bit different, and they might be just what you need during these rollercoaster menopause years.


So, What's an Infrared Sauna?

Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air around you, infrared saunas use infrared lamps (using electromagnetic radiation) to warm your body directly. Think of it as soaking up the warmth like sunbathing on a cool day - it's gentle, yet deeply penetrating. And the best part? The temperature in infrared saunas is usually lower than in regular saunas, so it's a more comfortable experience if you're heat-sensitive.

Now, onto the Menopause Benefits:

  1. Relief from Joint Pain and Stiffness: As we age, especially during menopause, aches and pains seem to come out of nowhere. Infrared saunas can help. The deep heat helps to relax and loosen up those stiff muscles and joints, offering some much-needed relief.

  1. Improved Sleep: If menopause is messing with your sleep (hello, insomnia!), an infrared sauna session might be a game-changer. The soothing heat helps to relax your body and mind, setting you up for a better night's sleep.

  1. Stress Reduction: Menopause can be, frankly, stressful. Infrared sauna sessions provide a tranquil space for you to unwind and de-stress. It's like a mini-spa session in the comfort of your own home (or your local spa).

  1. Skin Rejuvenation: With hormonal changes, your skin might be going through some tough times too. The gentle heat from the sauna helps to purify and rejuvenate your skin, giving you back that glow that stress and hormones might have taken away.

  1. Detoxification: Sweating it out in an infrared sauna can help your body release built-up toxins. This is especially beneficial during menopause, as your body is going through so many changes and could use the extra help in the detox department.

Just a heads-up, though – if you're new to infrared saunas, it's always a good idea to start slow (short sessions at lower temperatures) and see how your body reacts. And of course, staying hydrated is key!

Infrared saunas can be a great tool in your menopause management kit. They offer a soothing, relaxing way to ease some of the less pleasant aspects of menopause. Give it a try – you might just find it's your new favorite way to relax and rejuvenate!

Stay warm and well!
