The Benefits of Combining Chromotherapy with Infrared Sauna Therapy
While traditional saunas heat the air around you, infrared saunas heat the body directly. The radiant heat penetrates muscles and joints to the cellular level to help with healing processes and improve your physical and mental health.
Our Infrared saunas here at Revitalab provide a wide range of benefits. They can help with symptoms of autoimmune diseases by providing pain and stress relief. Sweating in an infrared sauna can also remove harmful toxins from the body.
In addition, infrared saunas are also beneficial to exercise recovery. A 2015 study found that “deep penetration of infrared heat… appears favorable for the neuromuscular system to recover from maximal endurance performance.”
Now that it’s clear infrared sauna therapy should become part of your wellness routine, combine it with chromotherapy here at Revitalab to take your session to the next level!
What is chromotherapy?
Chromotherapy is color light therapy.
A Critical Analysis of Chromotherapy and Its Scientific Evolution explains that “The common feature of every remedial and curative system of treatment... is to somehow apply vibrations of one kind or another in such a manner that the body can be put back on the health track. Most systems induce vibrations indirectly, but there are a few in which the vibrations are used directly upon the body, and chromotherapy is one of them.”
The core of chromotherapy is the understanding that different colors of light have different wavelengths, which then affect your body in different ways.
How does chromotherapy improve the infrared sauna experience?
There are many reasons to combine chromotherapy with infrared sauna therapy. Light therapy dates back to ancient Egypt and has been used for thousands of years because it provides physical and mental health benefits.
For example, the Mayo Clinic reports that light therapy with natural outdoor light can help with depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), sleep disorders, jet lag, dementia, and adjusting to a nighttime work schedule.
The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics uses blue light therapy to treat a skin condition and prevent cancer while Healthline reports that red light therapy may improve hair growth and diminish scars among other benefits.
The effects of light and color are still being studied and the treatment may impact everyone differently. Combining chromotherapy with infrared sauna therapy is the best way to try it for yourself!
