Do Infrared Saunas Burn Fat?

Do Infrared Saunas Burn Fat?

As California’s number one CoolSculpting provider, the Sculptology team knows very well that many men and women have unwanted fat that hinders their confidence. We know you’ve probably seen infrared saunas at your gym or elsewhere and have likely been curious about their benefits, especially when it comes to burning fat. So, let’s closely examine what an infrared sauna is and whether or not there is any evidence to support the claim that it helps you burn fat. Do they work?

What is an Infrared Sauna?

An infrared sauna is a particular type of sauna that uses infrared light to heat the body, which is a type of electromagnetic radiation invisible to the human eye but can be felt as heat. Infrared saunas are sometimes referred to as far infrared (FIR) saunas or infrared therapy, and they are different from traditional saunas because they do not use heat or steam to warm the air but instead use infrared light to heat the body directly. Light is made up of waves of energy that travel through the air and are absorbed by the body.

At Sculptology, our infrared sauna is top-of-the-line and, like all our experiences, is a luxurious and relaxing experience. Our goal is always to ensure you leave renewed and rejuvenated, and we are confident our infrared sauna can get you there.

Do Infrared Saunas Burn Fat?

So, do infrared saunas burn fat? Well, here’s what we know.  A small study out of Binghamton University in New York exposed people to an infrared sauna thrice weekly for 45 minutes for four months.  Those who used the sauna had up to a 4 percent drop in body fat compared to the control group, whose body fat did not change!

Infrared saunas use infrared light to heat the body from the inside out, causing your body to sweat. Sweating helps you burn calories and lose weight! And by heating the body from the inside out, that type of heat penetrates deeper into the tissues, which results in a deeper, more detoxifying sweat. Plus, they raise your core temperature, which can increase your heart rate.  A 2017 study found that participants’ heart rates stayed elevated for up to 30 minutes following a sauna session, similar to what people experience when performing moderate-intensity cardio, like jogging. Another study found that using an infrared sauna was associated with lower blood pressure and improved cardiovascular health.

Infrared light has been shown to have other benefits that promote weight loss. Infrared saunas help improve circulation and reduce inflammation. Additionally, spending time in an infrared sauna can help you relax, sleep better, and overall reduce stress and anxiety, commonly known to help keep the pounds on.
