Saunas were originally built for survival purposes and are believed to date back to around 2,000 BC and are still used in abundance today for the relaxation and health benefits, unfortunately having a sauna in your own home is a rather expensive and space consuming set up.
However, if you love a good steam but don’t want to share it with a bunch of strangers at the gym the MiHIGH Infrared Sauna Blanket might be the next best thing. This is the UK’s number one infrared sauna blanket, it measures out at 180cm long, suitable for a max user height of 196cm and 150kg weight capacity, it is made from a PU leather exterior, with a waterproof inside, non-toxic fabrics and is CE approved. So how does a sauna blanket work? Simple, all you need to do is lay it down somewhere comfortable, your bed for example, don’t worry it won’t get wet, you then use the handheld remote controller to begin heating the blanket. Snuggle into the blanket, it’s most comfortable in gym gear or swimmers, like a toasty burrito and relax for 30min to an hour, dim the lights, play some relaxing music, meditate or pop on your favourite box set.
Once you are done for the true post sauna experience, take a cool shower or run out into the snow (the latter might be harder to achieve). The infrared heat claims to be seven times more detoxifying than regular heat, this means that you aren’t just losing the bodies water but also sweating out the toxins that normal saunas might not have the power to do. The heat will also release happy chemicals in your brain, reducing stress and leaving you feeling calm and relaxed, it can improve sleep, promote blood flow, it can help to rejuvenate the skin by boosting collagen, it can also reduce inflammation and did we mention it helps to burns calories.
That’s right, a 30minute session could burn up to 600 calories, I mean even if it burns just 200 hundred that’s still a chocolate bars worth all whilst laying down. This sauna blanket is so easy to use, if you are used to regular saunas you might be disappointed to find there is no temperature gauge but instead using numbers 1-9 to select a heat setting you will soon find the right setting for you. The MiHIGH Infrared Sauna Blanket is easy to clean down, pack away and take on trips away (although it is best suited for car travel, it’s a bit of a lump for the suitcase) and feels so good to use, it’s not exactly the same as the real thing but it is a close second, tuck yourself into this cocoon and emerge rejuvenated and refreshed.
