INFRARED SAUNA BENEFITS FOR HEART PATIENTS

Since Dr. Oz reported on the benefits of infrared saunas on an Oprah show last month,  we’ve had a big increase at Olympic Hot Tub Company in inquires from customers who want to know more about the health benefits.

In one study, Japanese researchers reported that sauna therapy is beneficial for heart failure patients. Their study involved 20 patients with chronic heart failure. The patients were treated in a dry sauna (60 degrees C for 15 minutes) followed by a 30-minute bed rest (covered with a blanket) every day for two weeks. A control group of 10 patients rested in bed for 45 minutes at 24 degrees C. At the end of two weeks clinical symptoms were improved in 17 of the 20 patients treated with the sauna. No improvements were noted in the control group. The researchers conclude that repeated sauna therapy improves vascular endothelial function and heart function.

As reported in International Health News from a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Vol. 39, March 6, 2002, pp. 754-59.

Be sure to check with your doctor if you have heart problems before beginning a program of sauna use.

You can benefit, too.  You can add a Finnleo sauna to your home for less than the cost of a good cup of coffee a day!

  1. I use my sauna at night, to relax. I call it my bliss box or my stress reliever box. It’s a great way to end the day and let go of all the stress and rushing around. It’s an awesome place to meditate.

    1. Thanks for your comment.
      Love that you call your sauna your bliss box! Great name.
      Saunas are a great place to meditate and really do relieve stress.
      So glad you have one and use it.
      Best wishes,
      Alice
