infrared sauna

Are saunas good for you? Sweating is an impulse that goes far back in human history. About 3,000 years ago, the Mayans of Central America used sweat houses for religious ceremonies and good health. The Infrared Sauna work by using infrared wavelengths of light to heat the body itself, rather than heating the space around it. One of the best benefits of infrared heat is its ability to heat the body directly at a lower temperature. As the body’s core temperature increases, it triggers processes such as detoxification, improved blood circulation and stress reduction. This is technically referred to as hypodermic conditioning and it occurs when body temperature is increased over a short period of time.

tRADITIONAL VS INFRARED

One of the main differences between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna is the heat involved while inside the unit. Traditional dry saunas use temperatures as high as 185 to 195 degrees F, which can overwhelm those who are more sensitive to the heat. Infrared saunas use a much milder temperature environment of between 120 to 150 degrees F. However, because the heat of infrared saunas travels much deeper into the body, they are able to cause a more vigorous sweat at a lower temperature.
