How Can Saunas Support Lymphatic Drainage?

Posted on April 04 2023

If you've never heard of your lymphatic drainage system, let us tell you what it is & what it does.

Our lymphatic system is a network of tissues, vessels & organs that work together to move a colourless, watery fluid called lymph back into your blood stream.

It is part of the immune system, it keeps body fluid levels in balance & defends the body against infections so it's important to keep it healthy. Forget detoxing teas, diets & cleanses. The lymphatic system is the original detox.

If it's not working properly, fluid builds in your tissues & causes swelling called lymphedema. Other lymphatic system problems can include swollen limns, skin discolouration, difficulty breaking & risk of infection.

So how can regular sauna use support the lymphatic system?

Despite common belief, the process of detoxifying the body with a sauna comes down to far more than sweating out the toxins. 

While the body does a great job at managing itself, it isn't able to eliminate all the toxins in the body, particular those lurking in fat cells underneath the skin. Infrared saunas can help this by targeting subdermal fat cells with infrared light.  By exposing subdermal fat cells to infrared light, you accelerate the bodies natural process.
