Sauna therapy is an ancient treatment for relieving pain. Infrared saunas are extensively used to treat patients with arthritis, sports injuries, and sore joint & muscles. Mayo Clinic prescribes infrared sauna therapy for their Fibromyalgia patients.
Unlike traditional saunas, or hot tubs, infrared penetrates 2-3 inches into the skin. When your muscles are heated by an infrared sauna, blood flow increases; elevating your core body temperature produces a dilation of the capillaries, arterioles and ventricles.
A study reported in Clinical Rheumatology showed that infrared saunas gave substantial relief for patients with chronic pain. Four weeks of 30-minute, twice-weekly infrared sauna sessions resulted in a 40% improvement in pain and stiffness for RA sufferers and a 60% improvement for other joint stiffness.
A study in Internal Medicine reported that patients with chronic pain saw their pain levels drop 70% after their first session in an infrared sauna. Pain scores remained low throughout the observation period.
