Health Product Review: Personal Infrared Sauna Bench {sponsored}

So what is an infrared sauna?  Dr. Oz explains the infrared red sauna best to Oprah after he wheeled one onto her stage in 2009.  He describes the infrared sauna as different from the normal sauna because, “it makes the same rays that come from the sun and filters out the UV radiation, so it only gives you the infrared radiation,” he says. “The infrared goes a little bit into your skin so, without heating you up and the external environment too much, it heats the body up.”  He also says the high temperature helps lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation. It gets your heart to beat faster, and it burns calories.  It raises your metabolism a little bit, and also when you sweat, you sweat out toxins through the skin.”

Here are some of the benefits of the infrared sauna.  You can learn more details from the Health Partnes Sauna’ website – the manufacturers of some of the world’s best personal health products like the personal infrared sauna bench pictured above.  Before I tell you about my experience with one, here is a list of the health benefits of a sauna:

  • Boost metabolism – As you sit in the sauna your body is pumping blood and producing sweat, which in turn boosts your metabolism.  Plus, boosting your metabolism is vital to weight loss.
  • Suppress appetite – Supposedly in some study they did on males, they saw an increase in satiety levels…blah blah…so much detail.  haha Check out their site to get more details.  :) http://www.hpfittsystem.com/
  • Relieve arthritis – Like I said, ancient civilizations have used saunas to treat all types of ailments.  One of them was arthritis.  So, it’s no wonder we still use saunas to this day to relieve the same
  • Diminish back and joint pain – Increased blood circulation from the personal infrared sauna carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster.

 

During my last visit to my parent’s home, I checked out their latest health gadget.  My parents acquired a Health Partner Partner A65
26 X 45 X 32 personal infrared sauna bench.  Think about it, ancient civilizations knew about the health benefits over centuries ago – think Roman baths.  And now, centuries later, mankind has infrared saunas.  Health Partner creates infrared heat with seven flat carbon heaters with ceramic sand,  which safely and efficiently warms your body. With heaters targeting your back, the sides of your legs, the front of your knees and below your feet, the patented technology of far infrared heat penetrates evenly for optimal results.

What made me decide to look into this product further was because I had never seen a personal sauna bench before this one.  I had seen dry and steam saunas at spas, as well as the large personal ones you can have installed.  But I’ve never seen such a compact mobile spa that had all the health benefits of a full sauna.  I tried the personal bench twice in one week – once on a Tuesday and then again on a Thursday.  I weighed myself both on Monday and Friday.  Here’s what I especially loved about my experience after using the personal bench at my parent’s place.

  • It kept my head cool while my body was dripping with sweat. – Because it’s a bench and my shoulders and head could remain outside of the sauna, I didn’t feel suffocated, which always keeps me from sitting in a sauna for too long.  I was able to stay in the sauna for a good 30 minutes.  Keep in mind this isn’t the ideal time.   Ehow.com recommends you stay in no longer than 15 minutes per session and then cool off and come back for another 10 minute session.
  • Health Partner personal infrared sauna improves blood flow throughout the body without raising blood pressure or experiencing a feeling of suffocation. Blood flow, cardiac output and metabolic rate increases while diastolic blood pressure stays relatively consistent for enhanced overall cardiovascular fitness.  Read more here: http://www.hpfittsystem.com/labresults.html

  • I didn’t get bored – One of the reasons why I’m not a big fan of spending time in saunas is because I get suffocated and bored easily.  Even if the activity is for my health purposes, if my mind isn’t engaged then I lose interest very quickly.  But with the personal bench I was able to prop my laptop and iPad up, play my music while checking emails and read my magazine on my iPad.
  • Stress relief – I have so much on my mind lately and I feel like I have a billion little balls bouncing around in my head.  But as soon as I started sweating I could feel my stress melt away, except for the fact that I have to take my work with me everywhere, including propping it up in front of me while sitting in a sauna.  ;-)
  • *Small weight loss – I saw a 2 pound difference in my weight from the beginning of the week compared to the day after I used the bench.  I didn’t monitor my food or calorie intake so by no means is this a scientific study.  I simply jumped on a scale.  Plus it was probably all just water weight but any weight loss is fine by me nowadays, right?  Just remember to always stay hydrated before and after you use any type of sauna.
  • Now I can’t attest for this but using the infrared personal sauna is known to also help with cellulite and stretch marks in a more natural way.  That alone was a big seller for me.  C’mon, folks, let’s be honest.  Some of us spend hundreds of dollars on lotions, potions, massages, and other services to keep ourselves looking good & tight.  A product like this could be used for the rest of my life and not only keep me looking good but also healthy.  I invest in everything else, why not myself?  Plus, 2 Year Warranty ~ sweet.

*Keep in mind, results vary for everyone.  I can only attest for my experience.

 

It’s the perfect little health machine for the over 30 year old body and health conscious individual.  I think it makes a great gift for the busy person who can’t make it to the gym all the time.  Plus, it’s great for the older crowd who can use relief on their joints.  This personal infrared sauna bench can easily fit in a large apartment or townhouse and is portable enough to go with you to your next home.  Plus if you purchase one before the end of 2013, Health Partner will provide free delivery and installation.
