What is an Infrared Sauna?
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. Unlike the traditional sauna which relies on heating the body by radiating surfaces in the sauna room, infrared saunas use infrared heaters to emit infrared heat that is directly absorbed by the skin. It is this difference in heating methods that unleash the total healing properties which infrared saunas provide by heating the body directly and not just warming the air.
How does an Infrared Sauna work?
Infrared heaters warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. Infrared heat therapy uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally. Traditional saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body.
What does an Infrared Sauna do for you?
Infrared saunas are a type of sauna that uses heat and light to help relax and detoxify the body. Also called far-infrared saunas or near-infrared saunas, these omit infrared light waves that create heat in the body, causing you to sweat and release stored “toxins.”
Is Infrared Sauna good for you?
A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you. The appeal of saunas in general is that they cause reactions, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate, similar to those elicited by moderate exercise.
How many calories do you burn in an Infrared Sauna?
Far-Infrared Saunas are a healthy weight loss solution without exercising. Infrared Saunas burn 400-600 calories in just one 30-minute session. In a Far-Infrared Sauna, a moderately fit person can sweat one pound of sweat in a 30-minute session; the equivalent of running 2-3 miles.
