2. The room is heated with infrared ceiling panels.
There are many health benefits associated with infrared heating. Some examples include:
INCREASED BLOOD CIRCULATION
As the deep heat of infrared penetrates your body it allows greater blood flow throughout the body.
REDUCED MUSCLE AND JOINT PAIN
Greater blood circulation allows greater oxygenated and rich blood to be delivered to oxygenated-deprived muscles, allowing them to recover quicker and reduce the build up of waste products in these areas.
Infrared allows tissue in our muscles to warm, causing them to relax and increase range of motion.
BOOSTS OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Infrared heat is anti-bacterial. If used at a high enough temperature, it increases white blood cell count as the immune system fights an increased body temperature.
