Infrared Sauna

What is an infrared sauna?

An infrared sauna looks very similar to a traditional sauna, but rather than using steam or dry heat to raise the temperature, it uses infrared heat lamps.

 

Instead of heating the air around you, they warm your body directly. This allows the heat to penetrate more deeply, meaning a more intense sweat at a lower temperature.

Infrared saunas are designs to detoxify and heal the body, boost mood, and much more.

Benefits of an infrared sauna

Similarly to spending time in a traditional sauna, infrared saunas are incredibly relaxing, which can help reduce stress and tension.

 

However, because the infrared heat penetrates the body, is seven times more effective at detoxing the body. Research shows that after spending time in an infrared sauna, your sweat is composed of 20% toxins, compared to just 3% in a dry heat sauna.  

The powerful heat also promotes circulation, increases metabolism, relieves muscle and joint pain, boosts your immune system and your mood.
