Weight Loss with Far Infra-red Mat Sauna Therapy

How can Far Infrared Mat Sauna Therapy help with Weight Loss

Basically Far Infrared Mat Saunas are a healthy weight loss solution without exercising.  Far Infrared saunas can burn 400-600 calories in just one 30 minute session. In the chart below is a summary of how many calories a 150lb person normally burns in 30 minutes of exercise: 

Marathon Running 590 
Vigorous Racquet Ball 510 
Rowing (peak effort) 600 
Swimming (crawl stroke) 300 
Jogging 300 
Tennis (fast game) 265 
Chopping Wood 265 
Cycling (10 mph) 225 
Golfing (without a cart) 150 
Walking (3.5mph) 150 

With a far infrared sauna, a moderately fit person can sweat one pound of sweat in a 30 minute session, which is the equivalent of running 2-3 miles. While it is true that the weight of the water expelled in the sauna may be regained by re-hydrating with water – the calories lost will not, resulting in weight loss. 

Weight loss is just one of many benefits of regular use of Far Infrared Mat Saunas and if after experiencing FIR you would like your own mat, we have them for sale.

A 30 minute session of Far Infrared Sauna Therapy can release one pound of sweat which is the equivalent of running 2 - 3 miles.

Infrared Saunas have been around for years, but only recently have become popular in North America. The Japanese have been utilizing  Infrared Saunas for the past century and have enjoyed tremendous health benefits from them. 


Infrared Saunas are unlike conventional saunas which pull sweat out of the body. Far Infrared energy penetrates up to 3 inches into the body and PUSHES sweat out of the body. As the body is heated from the inside out, it forces toxins under the skin out. The temperature of a far infrared mat sauna is up to 70° Celsius (158° Fahrenheit) which is less than a typical sauna which goes up to 220F.   However, despite operating at a lower temperature, you will typically perspire far more in infrared saunas because the infrared energy penetrates your body at a much deeper level.  Fat becomes water soluble at 100F when it begins to dissolve, move through the blood and finally is removed from the body, resulting in weight loss. Toxins are also eliminated through your skin using lower, comfortable temperatures, for rapid detoxification.
