HOW IT WORKS.
Infrared saunas are designed to activate longevity processes known as hormesis, the body's adaptive response to moderate stressors and enhance its resiliency. The higher temperature "heat shock" stimulus of the sauna is just enough to promote an exercise-like response without being destructive to the cell. As a result, the body is forced to adapt, leading to improved cardiovascular health, stabilized mood and support immune function.
