Infrared saunas are popular in the wellness community for a number of reasons including the numerous health benefits and they just make you feel good! What exactly is an infrared sauna? Before we dive into what infrared saunas are, we should first understand infrared wavelengths.
The sun produces a combination of visible and invisible light, and one of those invisible spectrums is infrared rays. Invisible infrared wavelengths are what makes the sun feel warm (and ultraviolet wavelengths are what makes 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.
There are three main categories of the infrared spectrum: near infrared, mid infrared, and far infrared.
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. Our robust true wave full spectrum heating system provides all wavelengths 100% of the time to optimize your sauna session. Benefits of the infrared sauna include:
• Weight loss & increased metabolism
• Reduces muscle aches, tension, stiffness & joint pain
• Better sleep
• Stress & fatigue reduction
• Improves skin conditions
• Improves circulation
• Promotes relaxation
