If you find your mood changing negatively with the seasons, or need a haven to relax and take care of yourself, an infrared sauna session might be what you are looking for.

Lower blood pressure       

Why might saunas help lower blood pressure? Our bodies use nitric oxide to control the size of our blood vessels, and we release nitric oxide when we sit in saunas. Secondly, sauna time is relaxing, and our mental states are an important component of our blood pressure readings. Our bodies also respond to sauna time by increasing cardiac output, meaning the blood flow increases, helping circulation, bringing more oxygen to our muscles and increasing our metabolic rate. This effect is like the benefit we garner while participating in low-grade exercise. Obviously, relaxing in a sauna isn’t a replacement for exercise, but it might be another mechanism to help people lower their blood pressure.

Red

The color red as passionate is not just a cultural association. Red light has been shown to enhance libido and increase energy. Additionally, red activates collagen cells and helps stimulate skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It energizes organs and promotes faster healing when used in conjunction with infrared therapy.

Orange

Orange light therapy is traditionally used to stimulate mental activity and induce cheerful emotions. Orange hues can increase energy levels and improve a person’s mood.

Yellow

Yellow color light therapy can be used to help a person feel spiritually grounded while maintaining a positive outlook. It may help individuals feel more optimistic and lighthearted.

Green

We depend on the color green to feel calm. Individuals who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or the “winter blues” may consider using green to restore a sense of vividness.

Blue

Used in color therapy to ease symptoms of pain, anxiety, and depression. Some research shows blue cools down inflammation, lowers fevers, helps high blood pressure and relieves migraines. Other research has shown blue is effective in reducing acne because the blue lights kill bacteria which is a major source of acne infections.

Purple

Purple color light therapy helps individuals maintain a sense of “mind over matter” when dealing with chronic pain. It is often recommended for neurological pain caused by conditions like multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia. This color slows down an overactive heart, and stimulates the spleen and white blood cells. It promotes a true sense of tranquility, reduces anxiety, and detoxifies.

White

This is the most common color to be used in LED color therapy. It uses the three primary colors (Red, Green, & Blue), making it easy to receive the benefits from all the colors used for color therapy. Research has shown that white light can even increase vitamin D levels.
