Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy During Illness

Harnessing Healing Heat: The Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy During Illness

When one falls sick, sometimes we tend to use various remedies to relieve or reduce symptoms to enable recovery. However, have you ever considered the benefits of infrared sauna by warming up with heat therapy at the time of your illness? 

Sun Stream Saunas is here to explore the potential of heat, and its application to the body in bringing forth a variety of health and wellness advantages.

How Heat Can Be Used to Support Your Health When You’re Feeling Under the Weather

Infrared saunas operate by passing infrared (IR) light into your body, while traditional saunas release heat into the air that eventually warms your body. It is this soothing heat that radiates to the skin, and due to a process of sweating that follows, infrared saunas may offer a more comfortable experience that doesn’t overwhelm with ambient temperatures – while still maintaining the sweat that you’re looking for.

The healthy effects of infrared sauna therapy are derived from the fact that it stimulates circulation, organ detoxification, and relaxation. Featuring a more direct means of heating the body’s core, infrared saunas can promote numerous physiological reactions associated with general wellness, making them an attractive source of treatment for people seeking natural solutions for their health problems.

Moreover, when you’re feeling under the weather, infrared sauna therapy offers a range of benefits that can help alleviate symptoms and support your body’s healing process. 

Enhanced Immune Response

With infrared saunas engaged regularly, immunity can be enhanced due to your body’s increased circulation, i.e. to the production of white blood cells, which are responsible for attacking and killing harmful antigens by catalysing them. Through infrared therapy, the body is given the tools to fight back, which makes recovery from sickness faster, and its symptoms not less taxing.


By increasing blood flow to internal organs like the liver, as well as dispersing heat by radiating toward the skin, an infrared sauna has a great detoxification capability. By facilitating the body’s ability to process waste, alongside the release of toxic substances through the skin, sauna sessions may assist your body in getting rid of non-beneficial substances more effectively, shortening the time it would take for you to feel the symptoms and promoting your body`s rapid recovery.

Fever Management

Infrared saunas can mimic the body’s response to a mild fever, as they increase the body’s core temperature. A Fever is a defence mechanism that is set in motion by the immune system, as a reaction to infection in order to make the body’s environment inhospitable. An infrared sauna can be a powerful supplement in promoting a fever-like condition, which consequently can benefit your immune system response and result in less time for the illness to be recovered.

Pain Relief

Infrared saunas can soothe muscle aches, enhance circulation, and release endorphins as well as other natural painkillers, providing temporary relief.

Stress Reduction

Most illnesses involve a lack of energy, which puts your health to the test – not only physically, but mentally too. Infrared sauna therapy has the same effect as stress reduction and promotes the production of “feel good” neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. This may contribute to the relief of stress due to sickness, contributing to the body’s capacity to effectively rest.

Improved Sleep Quality

Peaceful sleep is one of the key factors in the recovery of your mind and body, as the primary period of time that allows for your body to recover capacity of motor control, as well as cognitive function. Infrared sauna therapy can be beneficial for relaxation and stress reduction here, promoting the production of melatonin as the body’s sleep hormone.
