Learn how you can ease the suffering of restless leg syndrome with an infrared sauna
October 27, 2017 – What keeps you up at night? If it’s Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) you’re not alone. RLS is real, and a lot of folks suffer from it. It has been confirmed by recent studies that as many as 33% of those with Fibromyalgia also suffer from this debilitating condition.
Common symptoms attributed to RLS include throbbing, itchy, or creeping sensations in the legs. RLS sufferers are overwrought by these feelings, and experience a nagging compulsion to seek some sort of relief by moving their legs. The symptoms occur and are most evident during the stillness of the night. This can make a restful night’s sleep more dream than reality.
Is there a cure for RLS? Not at this time…but there are ways to minimize the symptoms, including leg massage and applying heat to the legs. Medications can help as well, but if you suffer from RLS and you’re looking for a more natural way to seek calm we have a suggestion: Try an infrared sauna.
How can an infrared sauna help?
- One is deep, comforting heat. Infrared saunas help to increase circulation. Starting a sauna session 45 minutes before bedtime gives the soothing heat time enough to penetrate the muscle tissue and offer relief.
- An additional benefit is the release of toxins from your body. This can calm the nervous system and the effects of RLS. (Easing the discomfort of RLS is just one of the many health benefits you’ll enjoy from owning an infrared sauna.)
If you suffer from RLS, take a moment to consider adding a Finnleo Infrared Sauna to your home.
- There are plenty of sizes to fit your life, and your lifestyle.
- Many of them are easy to set up and only require a standard household electrical outlet
