This At Home Infrared Sauna Blanket Reduces Anxiety & Helps Weight Loss

• 23 April 2024

What are the benefits of infrared saunas and blankets?

Professional at home sauna blankets have become incredibly popular, and for good reason. These innovative wellness products have revolutionised the way we experience relaxation, detoxification,pain relief therapy and recovery. Supermodels Bella Hadid and Cindy Crawford have been known to routinely visit Manhattan sauna rooms, while actress and wellness guru, Gwyneth Paltrow, actually has a sauna room built into her Montecito home.

Saunas have so many incredible benefits—they cause your body to sweat out skin impurities and toxins to give your skin a healthy lit-from-within glow. You can even burn up to 600 calories in just 1 hour of relaxation, as well as relieving chronic pain. Really, what’s not to love?

If you want to get all the benefits of saunas, but don’t want to break your schedule (or your bank balance), our portable infrared sauna blanket might be the way to go.

What’s the difference between a sauna and an infrared sauna?

You might’ve seen a traditional sauna room at your gym, spa or pilates studio. It’s the one where you pour water onto a pile of hot coals in an enclosed, cedarwood lined room. These can get really hot—upwards of 80˚C hot—and can be not so relaxing for those that can’t handle heat. Infrared saunas work a little differently. Instead of heating the air to induce sweating, they use infrared light to heat your body.

“Infrared saunas stimulate healing on a cellular level,” explains Forbes editor, Olivia O'Bryon. “They’re linked with rapid exercise recovery, skin purification, pain relief and even anti-ageing.”

The CurrentBody Skin Infrared Sauna Blanket induces a comfortable sweat by using infrared therapy to gently heat your body. British Vogue editor, Lisa Niven-Phillips, compares the benefits of saunas to mimicking those of a “hardcore workout class, while sitting still.” The heat helps release impurities, heavy metals and environmental pollutants from your body, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Some celebrities even use sauna blankets for detox purposes alone; nevermind the long list of other health benefits.

One of the significant advantages of the CurrentBody Skin sauna blanket is the portability and convenience. The sauna wrap blanket can be easily set up at home, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a professional infrared sauna whenever you please.

It’s perfect for unwinding after a long day—just 30 minutes can release those feel-good endorphins to melt away stress, reduce muscle tension and improve your sleep quality. The best part? There’s no need for extensive spa visits or memberships; your own personal wellness retreat is ready and waiting.

Do sauna blankets burn fat?

Yes. As your core temperature rises from the infrared heat, so does your metabolism. That’s what indicates how many calories your body burns naturally (even while scrolling through TikTok). The higher your metabolism, the more calories you burn; eventually leading to fat loss. It’s not the same as a weight training workout where you increase your metabolism by putting on more muscle. Infrared sauna blanket sessions are most effective for weight loss when paired with weight training (to build and maintain muscle) or for achieving a calorie deficit as part of your training programme.

You can even use these sauna treatments for minimising post-workout aches and pains. The deep penetrating heat is really effective at getting rid of any stiffness and inflammation, similar to what you’ll get from a Bikram yoga session.

What’s more, the increased heart rate and blood flow also boosts your circulation and your immune system from all the nutrients and oxygen getting pumped around your body. If there’s a cold going around your office, don’t fret—you’ll be much more resilient against sniffles and infections if you’re using your sauna blanket at home regularly.

Do infrared saunas help with stress and anxiety?

Our daily lives can be overwhelming, but finding some ‘me time’ is essential for mental wellness. CurrentBody aims to offer a sanctuary of relaxation to combat the effects of stress to release tension, calm your mind and promote a sense of tranquillity. Without having to leave your home, you can absorb all the benefits of a spa sauna while your mind drifts away to your happy place.

And if the mental clarity and mood boost wasn’t enough, you’ll also be left with a youthful glow thanks to all the detoxification, tension release and relaxation from your at home sauna treatment.

The best infrared sauna blanket on the market—our portable infrared sauna blanket is designed to suit your lifestyle. You can customise your sauna time (and temperature) easily, which makes it perfect for quick mood boosts or longer recovery periods.
