Medical Sauna’s™ infrared Rapid Internal Heating System™ is an industry leader in providing a full range of health benefits, including improved circulation. With the use of infrared heat in a Medical Sauna™, you can increase the amount of blood flow throughout your body with the expansion of blood vessels reacting to heat. In fact, blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. This lowers your blood pressure as the blood to your heart can circulate more effectively.
A well researched benefit of improved circulation from Medical Sauna™ use is the relief of muscle soreness after regular workouts. This important discovery helps all people find relief with a faster recovery process after workouts and activities. This can make your activities more enjoyable, knowing your recovery will be free of muscle pain and soreness.

Because of all the doctors that came together to help make Medical Saunas™ possible, and the over 100+ years of combined experience they all provided, there are lots of medical benefits you will receive by using it daily.

To assess the impact of heat applied immediately after or 24 hours after exercise on delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in large skeletal muscle groups measured by subjective and objective means.
The most significant outcome was a reduction in soreness in the group that had heat applied immediately after exercise. There was benefit to applying heat 24 hours after exercise, but to a smaller extent. This was corroborated by myoglobin, algometer, and stiffness data.
