Infrared Sauna Therapy – Arthritis Pain Relief

Pain Pills? Steroids? Surgery? Is this what your Medical Provider has offered you to manage your pain?

One of the best reasons to purchase a Celebration sauna is the natural Arthritis Pain Relief associated with far infrared therapy. You deserve to feel better! Right? Far Infrared Therapy has been proven to provide long lasting relief from sports injuries, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid, Arthritis, Tendonitis, Nerve Damage and a multitude of other pain conditions.

Our Biophotonic infrared sauna heat works by penetrating the body at the cellular level. Infrared rays are selectively absorbed by cells and tissues needing a boost in their output. The internal production of infrared energy that normally occurs at the cellular level within our tissues is associated with a multitude of healing responses and a boost to a maximum level ensures the fullest healing response possible in a tissue which is being repaired. After boosting a tissue to its maximum, the remaining rays pass on harmlessly.

A Biophotonic Far Infrared Sauna gently and safely warms and stretches every muscle by increasing blood flow and oxygen to the micro circulatory system to produce direct action on both free-nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves to reduce muscle spasms, soreness, swelling, and improve lymphatic delivery. The application of Far Infrared to an injury not only heals the existing symptoms of pain but also reduces the risk of future strain and injury.
Don’t take our word for it! Read for yourself the medical and scientific research associated with the application of a Far Infrared Sauna and the many chronic pain conditions it alleviates.

*All topics and conclusions of the health benefits of infrared saunas have been thoroughly researched by Celebration Saunas but results can vary.

Abstract

To study the effects of infrared (IR) Sauna, a form of total-body hyperthermia in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients were treated for a 4-week period with a series of eight IR treatments. Seventeen RA patients and 17 AS patients were studied. IR was well tolerated, and no adverse effects were reported, no exacerbation of disease. Pain and stiffness decreased clinically, and improvements were statistically significant (p < 0.05 and p < 0.001 in RA and AS patients, respectively) during an IR session. Fatigue also decreased. Both RA and AS patients felt comfortable on average during and especially after treatment. In the RA and AS patients, pain, stiffness, and fatigue also showed clinical improvements during the 4-week treatment period, but these did not reach statistical significance. No relevant changes in disease activity scores were found, indicating no exacerbation of disease activity. In conclusion, infrared treatment has statistically significant short-term beneficial effects and clinically relevant period effects during treatment in RA and AS patients without enhancing disease activity. IR has good tolerability and no adverse effects.
