Use an Infrared Sauna
Infrared light is clinically proven to reduce muscle pain by increasing temperature, dilating blood vessels and increasing delivery of oxygen to cells. Light in this spectrum gets absorbed by cellular mitochondria, causing them to increase their rate of ATP production. ATP is the basic energy molecule that allows all cells to carry out their functions, including protein synthesis and waste removal.
If you don’t have access to a spa IR sauna, you can get a relatively inexpensive personal infrared sauna that can fit in most bedrooms. Make sure you have ventilation. Sit in the sauna for 15-20 minutes daily for a week, then 2-3x/week or as needed thereafter. Do nothing else (no reading, texting, or other distractions) while you sit in your sauna.
