Back in NYC..
When I lived in NYC I used to visit the infrared sauna in the West Village every week and I loved how incredible it made me feel. It reminded me of the feeling you get after a really long 90 minute hot yoga session, when you’ve worked really hard and you stretch really deeply into your muscles but without the hard work. Those NYC Saunas made me feel completely cleansed throughout and my skin was glowing well into the following week – everyone was like “wow you’re glowing!” and your skin is so clear and you just feel brilliant.
So with all THAT in mind I was really really eager to get my hands on one of these HigherDose infrared sauna blankets where you could get the same benefits at home, just lying on your own bed, chilling out. The Higherdose sauna blanket uses Infrared heat which penetrates deeper into the body than your average sauna and a crystal layer comprising of Amethyst and Tourmaline provide negative ions to counter damaging free radicals in your body and some of it’s wellbeing benefits. It’s lovely in the winter, when you’re absolutely freezing, to firstly warm up and then to sweat buckets and feel
incredible afterwards, without any exercise at all! The sweating buckets is key. It opens up your skins pores and releases toxins through your skin. Remember to drink loads of water after.
It’s something about the infrared quality that penetrates deep into your body, increasing your heart rate, relaxing muscles and improves your circulation. This helps with healing wounds and increasing your metabolism. The infrared also works as a low level light therapy for which is known to help conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis, Arthritis and reduces inflammation. Greg and I were really interested in getting hold of one as well to see if it could help his psoriasis. Greg has not had that many goes on it yet, possibly because I am always using it. I’ve been on at least three times a week and I absolutely love it! I feel immediately like my exercise is better. I’m not stiff ever, in fact some people used it to aid recovery
from tough workouts. I just feel like using it regularly makes me feel “trimmer” and healthier.
Time for You
I don’t have so much of that “Arghh” feeling…you know when you sometimes feel a bit sluggish or bloated, when you’ve been eating the wrong things … it’s a real kind of health kickstarter and detoxer (probably great for a hangover !) so I am absolutely loving it especially that feeling that it gives you afterwards, the endorphin kick or Runner’s High. Higherdose have given the Sauna blanket the catch phrase “Get High Naturally” for a reason. The other thing that has been boosting my mood is the fact that I’m getting so many lovely compliments from friends saying that my skin is glowing and all I can think is that it must be my infrared sauna blanket because I’ve not done anything else differently.
Now 55 minutes can sound like quite a long period of time BUT it is taking time for me (or you). Taking time out to care for yourself in our otherwise hectic lives so important. For me, I usually double up and work on my lines whilst enjoying the sauna but for somebody else it might be a phone call with a bestie, dictating a blog post about Infrared Saunas on the phone or taking some time to read – it is absolute bliss and I would highly recommend.
Thank you so much the HigherDose for gifting this blanket, I absolutely love it. Click here to view the HigherDose website.
