Infrared Sauna In Maryland

Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of any detoxification process. That’s why we utilize the infrared sauna as another element of our Holistic Therapy treatment program.

Not only does our modern lifestyle exposes us to hundreds of manmade toxins and environmental pollutants, but we often ingest toxins through our diet and, for some, through drugs and alcohol. Drug addiction fills our bodies with toxins at a much greater level. These toxins are very destructive and take an incredible toll on it.

Below you’ll find further details on the benefits of infrared sauna for detoxification. If you have further questions or are interested in our approach to addiction treatment and recovery, please get in touch with our team of professionals today by calling 410-421-7018.

Why infrared sauna?

We offer a wide range of treatments to those who choose Tranquility Woods. That’s because not just one treatment is right for everyone. Having an individualized program is will get you where you need to be. Infrared sauna has been proven to be helpful for a wide range of our visitors for the following reasons:

  • It’s safe, effective and natural
  • It helps remove environmental and drug toxins from the body
  • It improves overall health and wellness
  • It can be continued after addiction treatment

Detoxification through infrared sauna therapy

By heating up the body, saunas stimulate a process called “mobilization,” which is a breakdown of fat cells. Our fat cells are where toxins are stored in our body. Thus, this mobilization causes the release of toxins (waste products) into the bloodstream, which are then excreted through the liver, kidney, and sweat.

As you may know, detoxification is a necessary part of addiction recovery and good health. In order to help the detoxification process and to rid your body the many toxins within it, infrared sauna therapy is a vital step. Eliminating the toxins accumulated from years of addiction is one of the most powerful health- and life-enhancing steps toward living a healthier, more balanced life.

Improving your immune system for recovery

Besides utilizing the infrared sauna for sweat detoxification, this therapy is also proven to help boost the immune system. Infrared saunas trigger your body’s immune response and increase the production of white blood cells so that your body has the support that it needs to function effectively. Healing or recovery of any kind, including withdrawal and addiction, will be accelerated with a strong immune system.

Sauna improves anxiety and depression

Another benefit of the infrared sauna is that heat stress on the body has been shown to increase the expression of a protein called BDNF (exercise also does this). Why is this important for addiction recovery? Well, BDNF has been shown to play a role in alleviating anxiety and depression from early-life stressful events, and drug addiction is often a means to avoid internal suffering from painful past experiences. Since the infrared sauna works on both the body and mind, this treatment becomes a productive method for addiction recovery.
