Muscle Recovery


Medical Sauna’s infrared heat therapy is so effective it can improve the circulatory system. Our unmatched heating technology dilates blood vessels, which is an effective way to send more oxygen to the cells in your body. This can have a variety of effects, from reducing tension headaches to healing your skin and internal organs, all of which leads to a healthier you.
The increase of oxygen in the bloodstream also aids tired and strained muscles, and helps them relax and recover more quickly after intense workouts.

Additional research has indicated that cell health can be improved when using a Medical Sauna™. As a positive effect of heat, the blood circulating throughout the body rises closer to the surface of your skin. This can further improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery, and strengthen the immune system.

Because of improved circulation, oxygen rich blood is sent to painful areas and your body’s cells, further flushing away acidic wastes that cause more pain, inflammation, soreness and stiffness. Far infrared treatment has also been shown to make connective tissue more flexible, provide greater joint movement and bring about increased levels of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, which are distributed throughout the body via your blood.

Medical Saunas™ are more than just saunas. They were designed to help heal your body. 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.

Because Medical Saunas™ are based purely on documented studies, we have included the appropriate studies below with links for further research and verification.




Muscle Regeneration – National Center for Biotechnology Information

Clinical Study

Research:

Hyperthermia therapy has recently emerged as a clinical modality used to finely tune heat stress inside the human body for various biomedical applications. Nevertheless, little is known regarding the optimal timing or temperature of heat stress that is needed to achieve favorable results following hyperthermia therapy for muscle regeneration purposes. The regeneration of skeletal muscle after injury is a highly complex and coordinated process that involves a multitude of cellular mechanisms. The main objective of this study was to characterize the effects of hyperthermal therapy on the overall behavior of myoblasts during myogenic differentiation.

Results:

Atrophy genes were sensitive even to moderate hyperthermia, indicating that strictly controlled heat stress is required to minimize the development of atrophy in myotubes. In addition, mitochondrial biogenesis was enhanced following thermal induction of myoblasts, suggesting a subsequent shift toward anabolic demand requirements for energy production. This study offers a new perspective to understand and utilize the time and temperature-sensitive effects of hyperthermal therapy on muscle regeneration.
