Can a sauna help my mood?

Lighten Up with an Infrared Sauna

A far infrared sauna provides many health benefits including detoxification, weight loss and increased circulation. But by far the most popular use of a sauna is for the pure pleasure and enjoyment.

The warmth of a sauna decreases blood pressure and enhances relaxation, yet with a little planning you can create an even more therapeutic experience through the use of color. The use of color or light therapy is an option for those using a far infrared sauna since the sauna is dry. The steam from a traditional sauna distorts the light but a dry sauna remains clear and easily visible.

Research by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality found light therapy is able to improve sleep, mood and energy among women with depression (who do not suffer from SAD). A far infrared sauna is able to integrate a wide variety of colored bulbs with a color to suite any mood.

  • Orange is associated with autumn and the seasonal light change taking place in nature.
  • Yellow symbolizes sunshine, warmth, hope, light and energy.
  • Blue is a calming color associated with the sky and the sea.
  • White is associated with cleanliness, purity and spirituality.
