Infrared Sauna

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light, which is experienced as radiant heat. Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air around you, infrared saunas heat your body directly. Here are key points about infrared saunas:

Infrared Light: Infrared light is a type of electromagnetic radiation that is not visible to the human eye. Infrared saunas use heaters that emit infrared light to create heat, which is absorbed by the surface of the skin. This is different from traditional saunas that rely on heating the air to warm the body.

Temperature: Infrared saunas operate at lower temperatures compared to traditional saunas. While traditional saunas may reach temperatures of 150-195°F (65-90°C), infrared saunas typically operate between 120-140°F (49-60°C). Despite the lower air temperature, users often feel the heat more intensely due to direct absorption by the body.

Types of Infrared Heaters: There are three main types of infrared heaters used in saunas: far-infrared, mid-infrared, and near-infrared. These terms refer to the specific wavelengths of infrared light emitted by the heaters. Some saunas use a combination of these for a broader range of benefits.

Health Benefits: Advocates of infrared saunas suggest various health benefits, including relaxation, improved circulation, pain relief, detoxification through sweating, and potential assistance in weight loss. Some studies also suggest positive effects on cardiovascular health.

Detoxification: Sweating is a natural way for the body to eliminate toxins, and infrared saunas are believed to promote detoxification. However, the extent of detoxification benefits and the specific substances removed through sweat are areas of ongoing research.
