As a fitness trainer, I work out with many, many different types of people. People of different ages, different body types, and MANY different medical concerns. Trying to stay active and feel good despite suffering from chronic pain is a top issue for some of my clients, so I’ve had a lot of experience working around a wide range of pain conditions. I’ve heard it time and time again — living with constant pain is really frustrating, and you’ll try just about anything to make it stop. You seek out all the latest research, expert advice, gadgets, and treatments to find relief, but it’s usually hit or miss. Or, you find a great solution, but after a while it doesn’t work as effectively, so find yourself right back where you started.
Listen, I’ve been there too, and I totally understand the agony. You can’t be a fitness trainer and athlete without sustaining a few injuries of your own! I, too, have had to power through some serious pain over the years. And the older I get, the harder it is to bounce back…I know you all hear me! So, I wanted to introduce you to a really cool solution you may not have thought of or taken the time to explore…sweating out the pain. How? With infrared sauna therapy.
My friends at Sunlighten Saunas — who literally founded the company as a result of a personal healing experience with infrared therapy — are big believers in the power of sauna heat to provide pain relief, naturally. Infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation, and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on our delicate nerve endings, infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and actually helps the body heal itself, without any pills or patches.
But don’t take my word for it…there have been multiple, recent studies that confirm the benefits of infrared sauna therapy on pain relief, including one conducted by NASA! Doctors understand the benefits of this effective option too, and for years they’ve recommended this therapy for relief from:
- Sports injury.
- Chronic fatigue syndrome.
- Other chronic pain conditions.
Sunlighten’s infrared saunas have a history of providing effective pain management therapy for many other ailments too, such as Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), rheumatoid arthritis, and even emotional pain. The medical community has been discussing the real physiological impact of psychological issues for a long time now, and it’s been shown that this type of therapy works for the pain you can’t see, too. Finding ways to reduce stress and increase relaxation in our hectic, non-stop world is key to maintaining a healthy balance, and hopping in the sauna is a natural, calming way to get to that happy place.
And most importantly, I know many of you feel as if you’re already taking too many medications and pills, and you’re looking for more natural solutions to your ailments. This therapeutic option is completely
So if you’ve been suffering from chronic pain, infrared sauna therapy may be worth talking to your doctor about. The results I have seen are pretty incredible — and what’s great is that pain relief is just one of MANY benefits you can experience. This type of therapy has also been shown to have a positive impact on cell health, blood pressure, circulation, skin health, detoxification, and even wound healing. It’s a natural treatment option that really packs a punch!
