Body Awakening Massage and Wellness Introduces Infrared Sauna
Feb 01, 2013 01:19AM
Body Awakening Massage and Wellness Center, located just west of downtown Lancaster, is now offering infrared sauna sessions. The center includes a guided meditation with the treatment in order to help reduce the recipient’s stress and promote deep relaxation. Body Awakenings also offers an organic detox herbal wrap that promotes detoxification and purification as part of a healing infrared experience.
Infrared saunas emit the same type of invisible light we absorb from the sun but without the dangerous effects of solar radiation. Infrared waves are absorbed through the skin, deeply heating the internal organs and muscles, without excessive external temperatures. This type of sauna increases the body’s metabolism, and the increased energy expenditure can enhance weight loss. Heating muscles naturally increases circulation, which over time can also help lower blood pressure and relieve pain and inflammation.
