WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THERMOTHERAPY?
Thermotherapy applies heat to the body to provide health and wellness benefits by using a combination of infrared sauna, light therapy, vibrational massaging and aromatherapy,
Heat treatment has been used throughout history. Today, these ancient health practices are blended with modern-day innovation to create therapeutic experience which benefits your mind, health and body.
Read our breakdown of main benefits of thermotherapy which make this treatment a must in supporting your overall health and wellness journey.
Relieve aches and pains
One of the most prominent benefits of thermotherapy is the treatment of muscular aches, pains, inflammations and tensions. Using an infrared sauna can help penetrate your muscle tissue to treat anything from a minor discomfort to chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia.
By applying heat to your aches and pains, your muscles can stretch out further than usual as the application heat increases your tissues extensibility – this means any tense muscles will lose any stiffness and become relaxed.
Boost your immune system
Detoxification is an integral part of any thermotherapy treatment, helping support a stronger, stimulated immune system. Our immune systems work better in hotter temperatures, so being subject to temperatures of 40 °C helps boost our immune systems and allows the biochemical process to function efficiently and remove any unwanted toxins.
Improve your circulation
A key benefit of thermotherapy is the positive impact it can have on your overall circulatory system. Through infrared sauna therapy, your circulation can be stimulated which helps cleanse and fully oxygenate your body’s cells and circulatory system.
This improves your blood circulation, meaning toxins can flow to and improve your skin cell health, bolster your body’s immune system and support muscle recovery.
Enhance skin appearance
Light therapy, which is used as part of the thermotherapy treatment at Fire & Ice, benefits the overall appearance of your skin. The treatment smooths out your skin using heated light, helping reduce the signs of scarring, acne, sun damage, pigmentation and other skin sensitives.
The effects of light therapy also has anti-aging benefits, creating more youthful and smoother looking skin. Through boosting the circulation of nutrient-rich oxygenated blood to your skin for a ‘plumper’ appearance, light therapy increases epidermal firmness, as well as skin elasticity to create and smoother look.
Stimulate your metabolism
Thermotherapy treatment also offers the potential to boost your body’s metabolism, which can help result in burning calories to support your weight management journey.
When your body is subject to heat, it works to cool itself down which substantially increases your heart, cardiac and metabolic rates, which, when combined, helps burn calories. A session within an infrared sauna can help burn upwards of 500 calories thanks to this heat stimulation, all while you sit back and relax!
Restore your mind and body balance
Relaxation, rejuvenation and reinvigoration – all three of these are benefits of thermotherapy on your body and mind. The unique combination of therapies involved within thermotherapy helps to restore balance to your overall health and wellness.
Through vibrational massaging, your body can become relaxed which aids the alleviation of stress, while aromatherapy’s use of essential oils and air salts can help revive your energy levels as you relax during the treatment.
At Fire & Ice, our thermotherapy pod uses infrared wavelengths of light to heat your body to stimulate detoxification and metabolism. Book your thermotherapy treatment with us today and start your wellness journey.
