You may have heard all the hype about infrared sauna blankets and the wide range of health benefits they provide. I’m here to help you weigh the options and decide if an infrared sauna blanket is right for you.
Let’s be honest, every other day there is a new “hot” health and wellness “must-have” to help us look better, feel better, and live longer. It can be overwhelming trying to incorporate so many new habits into our daily routine. I must admit, as a health and wellness enthusiast myself, I am guilty of buying into all of it—anything that will keep me here longer and help me look and feel my best intrigues me…you feel?
Just to be clear, I am not a medical professional, but will gladly shed light on this buzz-worthy topic so that you too can choose if a sauna blanket is right for you. I first discovered the HD Infrared Sauna Blanket last year and after learning about all of its benefits, I made an impulsive splurge so that I could have one of my own. I read that in addition to heating and detoxifying the body, these blankets can also improve the immune system, calm the nervous system, speed up metabolism, alleviate pain, boost collagen, enhance circulation, help with anti-aging, skin purification, and cell health. What more could one ask for? Needless to say, I was sold…and it didn’t take long for me to become hooked.
This is no small ticket item though: in-home sauna blankets can range from $300-$500. The convenience of owning your own blanket isn’t the only way to enjoy infrared sauna treatments. I checked out Shape House in Los Angeles for a much more affordable option – it costs $50 for a single session. It’s almost like walking into a yoga studio, but instead of stretching, you snuggle into your own private infrared sauna blanket and mellow out with music or Apple TV. There is a call button which alerts the front desk clerk to come scratch any itch that comes your way, wipe the beads of sweat off your forehead, or refill your water.
So, to sweat or not to sweat? I say yes. Sweat it out. Detoxify your body. Whether it’s in the comfort of your own home or at a sauna house, just try it. Everyone deserves to reap these amazing benefits.
