Happy Endorphins
(Releases the same happy hormones as a 30 min workout)
Infrared sauna exposure causes a release of dopamine ( a neurotransmitter) and beta-endorphins, a neuropeptide hormone.  These hormones cause a sense of euphoria, improved mood, more energy, a greater sense of calm and pain tolerence. 
(The word endorphin is a combination of the words "Endo-genous", or occurring naturally in the body and "mo-RPHIN-e" which is a pain-relieving  compound).  The level of endorphins released during an infrared sauna session can be three times the normal rate of release which is similar to a moderate run.

​There is  some science to back this feeling of floating you experience, have you ever wondered what's responsible for the natural  high or runners high, after experience  in general, the most common explanation is that your body is releasing endorphins but that's not entirely what's going on.  Beta-endorphins are natural  opioids that are part of our natural painkiller system.  This system is known as the "mu opioid2 system which stops pain signals from going from the body to the brain.  The body also generates a peptide called dynorphin which is responsible for the feeling of unease (better known as dysphoria).  Unease experienced due to heat in a sauna, eating spicy food or during intense exercise is because of the release of dynorphin, this causes a sensation of the mu opioid receptors  which then interact with the beta-endorphin, the process is what creates the "runner's high" feeling.

Immediately following an infrared sauna session (and the interaction of the dynorphins and mu opioid receptors) is a sense of "high" from raised serotonin levels.  Serotonin is regarded by some researchers as a chemical that is responsible  for maintaining mood balance.  When your serotonin  levels are normal you feel happier, calmer, more focused, less anxious and more emotionally stable.

An infrared sauna will help to normalise your serotonin levels and put you in the rest and digest mode of your parasympathetic nervous system.  As a result after only a few sessions you will  simply exit like your floating on a cloud.

All of the above are also experienced during and after a floatation therapy session which is why a combined float and sauna makes for a very powerful combination treatment.
