Summer is just around the corner, and many of us are concerned about showing off our bodies at the pool or beach. Whether your motivation is looking good or attaining overall better health, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight.  If summertime is a great motivator to achieve your goal weight, then ºdegree Wellness saunas can help.

In a scientific study, our far infrared saunas were shown to help weight loss by burning calories while you relax. Our goal is to support healthy weight loss, as well as the overall wellness of our customers – and regular infrared sauna use can be a key component to creating that healthy lifestyle you are seeking.

Sauna Weight Loss and Heart Health

One important benefit of losing weight is a healthy heart, and infrared heat therapy can help you achieve both. When it comes to burning calories with infrared heat, ºdegree Wellness saunas have been clinically shown to aid in weight loss. Results from a 2009 study indicate that sauna health benefits include lowering weight and waist circumference in just a 3-month period. What’s more, a 10-year study published by The New England Journal of Medicine found that waist circumference by itself is a critical factor in assessing the risk of premature death.

In another clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, the solocarbon heaters, used at ºdegree Wellness, were shown to lower blood pressure through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. The study concluded that infrared sauna therapy dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.

Additional research studies have shown that both far- and mid-infrared heat waves are effective in weight loss efforts. Our full spectrum infrared saunas offer both far- and mid-infrared settings. We’ve even pre-programmed the saunas with a weight loss setting, custom blending the infrared output for the most effective use. But you can go even further and adjust the settings to the best custom output for you on any given day to take advantage of additional sauna benefits.
