Infrared Sauna

What is an Infrared Sauna?

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. This type of sauna is sometimes called a far-infrared sauna — "far" describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. Infrared saunas omit infrared light waves that create heat in the body, causing you to sweat and release stored “toxins.”

Some of the benefits of infrared saunas include:

  • anti-aging effects

  • increased detoxification

  • anti-inflammatory effects

  • pain reduction

  • joint and muscle support

  • cardiovascular 

  • helps wound healing

  • boosts metabolism & energy

  • better sleep

  • weight loss

  • helps the body cope better with stress

How does an Infrared sauna work?

Infrared saunas differ from conventional saunas because their light waves directly penetrate the skin but does not warm the air around you. The temperature in your body goes up quickly, yet the light has no effect on your surroundings.

An infrared sauna achieves its results at lower temperatures than a conventional sauna and people who can’t withstand high temperatures, might tolerate infrared saunas better.
