Enhance and elevate your overall health with Michael Phelps Sweaty GOAT Saunas by Master Spas. The far-infrared therapy offers a range of health benefits while allowing you to create a wellness sanctuary. Whether it's stress reduction, relaxation, relief from muscle and joint discomfort, Sweaty GOAT Saunas help you live to your greatest degree.
Enhances circulation and cardiovascular function
Sauna bathing is relaxing. However, it also mimics the effects of moderate to vigorous cardiovascular effects on the body. You’re going to sweat, obviously. More than that, though, your heart rate will also increase.
Studies suggest that engaging in sauna bathing may potentially reduce the risk of heart disease. A study followed 2,300 sauna enthusiasts for 20 years, and the findings revealed that those who frequented saunas more often (four to seven times per week) experienced lower mortality rates from heart disease and stroke.
In addition, research shows that regular sauna use can contribute to lower blood pressure levels. Relaxation and improved circulation work together to support a healthier cardiovascular system.
Relieves muscle and joint pain
Saunas can help ease muscle soreness and tension, promoting post-workout recovery and helping you feel more prepared for your next workout.
The heat of the infrared sauna, which can be set up to 150 degrees, causes the blood vessels to dilate and relax. Blood is able to move more freely throughout your vessels, reducing tension in your joints and delivering valuable oxygen to your muscles so they can repair themselves.
Lowers chronic inflammation
The focused warmth in a sauna enhances blood circulation, delivering oxygen-rich blood that aids in reducing inflammation and swelling. Additionally, the infrared light spectrum activates your body's heat stress response, prompting the production of ATP. ATP is a tiny energy-carrying molecule that helps keep the body running. This, in turn, serves as a catalyst for generating additional white blood cells that combat inflammation within your body. People with chronic conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia can use a Michael Phelps Sweaty GOAT Saunas by Master Spas to manage swelling and pain.
Supports the immune system
Sauna bathing can help boost your immune system, making it easier for your body to fight off illnesses and diseases. Health benefits associated with sauna use include improvements in cardiovascular function, modulation of the autonomic nervous system, and beneficial changes in circulating lipid profiles and systemic blood pressure. These effects may indirectly contribute to immune system support.
In addition, the heat generated in saunas can induce sweating, which is known to help eliminate toxins from the body. Sweating can also promote circulation and increase body temperature, which help support immune function by stimulating the production of white blood cells.
Improves skin health
The heat of the infrared sauna increases circulation, which can help with a range of skin conditions. Infrared saunas like the Sweaty GOAT use targeted infrared light, which penetrates beneath the skin and directly targets the sebaceous gland. Sauna bathing can help you manage acne, eczema, and psoriasis among other conditions. Additionally, the body’s reaction to heat will clear the pores, creating smoother, softer skin.
Helps reduce mental stress and fatigue
Sauna sessions can trigger a release of two mood-boosting chemicals — dopamine and beta-endorphin. These biochemicals contribute to a feeling of euphoria, enhancing mood, energy levels, a sense of calm, and pain tolerance. Additionally, there’s evidence that demonstrates the positive impact of sauna use on lowering cortisol levels, contributing to mood and stress regulation. One study found that people who use a sauna five to 15 times per month exhibit higher scores in mental well-being compared to those who use the sauna less frequently.
Elevates emotional well-being
Stress impacts your overall health. Even a single sauna session can provide you with a way to relieve stress and improve your mood. Sauna bathing promotes relaxation, soothing nerves, and knotted muscles. You will feel rejuvenated and restored in both body and mind.
