Sometimes it’s good to treat yourself. You work hard at your career and focus intensely on your family and friends. Every once in a while, a sauna session is just the ticket! A detoxifying sweat and soak in the heat is relaxing, revitalizing, and rejuvenating.

But did you know that traditional steam saunas aren’t your only option? In fact, you can now enjoy heat therapy with infrared light. Infrared light therapy is modern, effective, and can provide you with numerous physiological benefits, ranging from improved athletic recovery to faster regeneration to skin detoxification!With so many great benefits, there’s no reason not to try out infrared light therapy at luxury facilities like Next Health West Hollywood in the Greater Los Angeles Area. Conveniently located in the heart of LA for go-getters like you, our infrared light therapy is available as two different experiences. Let us explain more about this revolutionary therapy and our infrared light services in detail.

 

Infrared Therapy Explained

 

Infrared light therapy is an effective, non-invasive technique athletes and wellness specialists use to induce positive physiological changes in the body.

It all stems from how heat affects your tissues. In most cases, tanning beds or traditional steam saunas widen blood vessels, which supports collagen and skin cells, and warm deeper tissues to support healing and reduce discomfort.

But unlike these alternative therapeutic techniques, infrared therapy uses infrared light, which penetrates through the skin and reaches deeper bodily tissues like muscles and blood vessels much more readily.

With an infrared light bed or sauna session, you’ll experience numerous beneficial effects, including but not limited to:

  • Widening of the blood vessels facilitates the movement of nutrient-rich blood throughout the body, including the skin and the extremities like the fingers and toes.
  • Reduced discomfort around muscles and joints, especially if you enjoy infrared light therapy after an intense exercise session.
  • Improved mood and mental wellness. The warm, calming heat of infrared light therapy can soothe the mind and reduce stress by increasing cardiovascular health and burning away cortisol, a major stress-causing hormone.
  • Skin purification because infrared light therapy warms the body and induces a detoxifying sweat.
  • Enhanced beauty. Infrared light supports a brighter, smoother, more youthful complexion.
  • Mood improvements since infrared light therapy cause your body to release endorphins. These hormones then reduce stress and anxious feelings.

All in all, infrared light therapy is a beneficial therapeutic technique for almost everyone, not just athletes or yoga practitioners. Fortunately, you don’t have to purchase an infrared sauna for your home to benefit from these effects.

 

How Next Health Offers Infrared Wellness to Our Clients

 

Next Health West Hollywood in Los Angeles now offers two different types of infrared light therapy for our clients. Both of these therapy types can be beneficial – let’s break down what you can expect from each therapy in more detail.

 

Infrared Beds

 

Next Health’s infrared LED light beds come equipped with over 13,000 high-intensity infrared LEDs. These beam full-spectrum infrared light for maximum benefits. The red and blue lights feel warm to the touch but are not exceedingly hot, ensuring a comfortable experience when you lie down in one of our infrared LED beds.

The experience is similar to a tanning bed session, but one of our wellness specialists will walk you through the entire process and be available at any point during your appointment. Next Health’s infrared LED beds can activate ATP throughout your body’s tissues, improving energy, minimizing fatigue, and stimulating white blood cell activity to boost collagen production and repair damaged bodily tissues.

Even better, the release of ATP will trigger the production of new endorphins, relieving you of stress and both acute and chronic pain.

 

Infrared Sauna Sessions

 

Next Health West Hollywood is located in the Greater Los Angeles Area and also offers infrared sauna sessions. Unlike a traditional sauna experience, our sauna capsules enclose you in a private space and combine infrared LED emitters with jade stones and other traditional heating elements.

The resulting experience that blends both past and present technologies can add a lot to your wellness regimen, sharpening your mental alertness, decreasing stress, and alleviating anxiety. Each infrared sauna session is sure to induce a detoxifying sweat and help you feel much better than before.

Next Health West Hollywood’s infrared sauna sessions are particularly good for individuals who feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of toxins in the air and environment.
