WHAT IS AN INFRARED SAUNA?
Technically, it is not actually a "sauna", it is really an infrared therapy cabin. It just so happens that the sauna environment is a great environment to deliver infrared as you are not wearing any clothing and you are surrounded by the infrared heat. The sun produces a combination of visible and invisible light, and one of those invisible spectrums is infrared rays. Invisible infrared wavelengths are what make the sun feel warm (and ultraviolet wavelengths are what make it bright). Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body as they increase the thermal energy in the body. Infrared does this without any of the harmful rays of sunlight.
Rather than use steam or the traditional “box of hot rocks” heating elements, the infrared sauna heaters use the infrared spectrum listed above to promote relaxation and other wellness benefits. In an infrared sauna, the air temperature is less important than the quality of the infrared heat.
You will warm up with the sauna. As your body absorbs the infrared heat, this will increase thermal energy inducing a deep and relaxing sweat. Using an infrared sauna at lower temperatures means you can stay in longer and get more benefits.
BENEFITS OF INFRARED SAUNAS
Our infrared sauna produces the same infrared heat produced by the sun and Infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health. This radiant heat increases the thermal energy in joints, muscles, and tissues. When used as intended as part of a healthy lifestyle, infrared saunas may help living well with certain chronic diseases or conditions.
Infrared heat is all around us and you have felt it from sources like fire, heated sand on the beach, and the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off). Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light: longer wavelength infrared waves are thermal, while short or near-infrared waves are not hot at all, in fact, you cannot even feel them. Near and mid-infrared enhance the benefits of far infrared.

INFRARED SAUNAS VERSUS TRADITIONAL AND STEAM SAUNAS
The main difference between infrared saunas and traditional saunas is how they use heat. Traditional saunas use a single heater that is heating the air and this hot air heats the user. In contrast, infrared saunas use advanced therapy to promote heat generation in the body with only a small percentage of the heat heating the air. This results in a deeper sweat and at a lower ambient air temperature. In fact, infrared saunas usually operate between 115° – 135°F, while traditional saunas can get up to 195°F.
You will get all of the relaxation benefits of a traditional infrared sauna along with the increased health benefits that infrared offers all at a much more comfortable temperature. Infrared saunas are also dry saunas and many users find this makes for a more comfortable sauna session.
Not only are infrared saunas extremely beneficial, but they are also more efficient and require less electricity. Also, the warm-up time of an infrared sauna is much quicker than a traditional sauna.
Our Sauna offer near, mid, and far-infrared technologies, and our Premier Far Infrared Saunas offer all of the benefits of far-infrared heat.
