Infrared energy is truly amazing stuff. Scientists have put it to use trapping infected mosquitos and even powering devices without a battery. And if you need to relax, infrared can offer a soothing heat that reaches deep into your body. The MiHIGH Heated Sauna Blanket takes that a step further, with a sauna you can fit in a suitcase and use anywhere you have an outlet.
A gentle heat has been used for health purposes for centuries; the first sauna dates back as far as 2000 BCE. Heat relaxes blood vessels, allowing more blood flow into stiff areas. This in turn provides more oxygen and nutrients to tissues and helps the lymph system do its job of clearing away lactic acid and other byproducts of exercise that can stiffen you up. Sweating also helps this natural cycle, as one of the methods the body uses to get rid of unwanted elements.
The MiHIGH uses the same far-infrared wavelengths as a traditional "box" sauna, yet it's simple to set up. Just roll it out on a heatproof comfortable surface, like a bed or exercise mat, plug it in, and use the remote control to set your preferred temperature. Tuck in for thirty minutes up to an hour while listening to calming music, practicing your mindfulness, or just stepping out of the rush of the day for a while. Then get up and go about your day with that post-sauna energy, with a relaxed body and mind.
It's ideal for situations where you want the feel of a sauna, but don't have the time to head to the spa, or when you know you'll be working out on the road. It packs easily into the included bag, and it's made of non-toxic fabrics with a waterproof interior. It's even a worthwhile investment if you lead an active lifestyle. One user remarks, "I train 4-5 days a week and also deal with a health issue that causes intense muscle spasms and tremors. My blanket has been a huge help with recovery and detox."
Usually $499, the MiHIGH is currently 14% off, just $424.99.
