Stress Relief Treatment with Far Infrared Sauna Therapy

Submitted by Dr. Dana Gleeson

We all experience different types of stress in our daily lives. Jobs, relationships, toxic environments, health and so much more can be contributors. The way an individual deals or copes with stress can vary, but statistically, the highest recommended avenues that have been proven to best combat our daily stressors usually include cardio exercise, yoga, meditation and stretching. Amazingly enough, the far infrared hybrid massage bed performs all of these stress relieving tasks at once.

For the exercise component, the far infrared wavelengths produced with Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) penetrate up to two inches into our bodies and cause a relaxing warming effect.¬ As our bodies¬heat up, our heart rate begins to¬increase to try and dissipate this heat.¬ Our pulse rate and cardiac output increases and the body's internal physiology starts to mimic a cardio exercise like state. ¬It's as if you are going for a run while simply lying there relaxing.

With regards to the yoga, meditation and stretching elements, while you are lying on the far infrared hybrid massage bed there are two sets of heated jade rollers that are continually moving up and down the table gently massaging the muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout your entire spine and legs. The far infrared heat produced from the jade rollers allows all of your stress tightened muscles, ligaments and tendons to relax and stretch. Not only does your muscle tension melt away, the flexibility and range of motion in your ligaments and tendons improve allowing you to become more flexible. Also while you are lying and enjoying your experience we recommend that you close your eyes, breathe deeply and think wonderful thoughts.

When your session on the hybrid infrared massage bed has ended, you arise feeling much calmer, more centered, relaxed and ready to face the world.
