What is infrared sauna?

The infrared saunas success is based on the principle that when the whole body functions harmoniously, a tremendous feeling of well-being is the result. Infrared saunas differ from a regular sauna in that the heat is very comfortable and pleasant. Many people report they use the infrared sauna to promote healthy sleep and respiration.

Doctors and therapists have used far infrared heat to effectively treat muscular pain, rheumatism, skin problems and sports injuries.

Infrared saunas are a safe and gentle form of radiation in the 5.6 – 15 micron wavelength range. Extensive research has been done to demonstrate that this type of radiation is of most benefit to our bodies because of its therapeutic and tissue regenerative properties. A traditional sauna warms your body by the environmental heat, which requires the temperatures be anywhere from 170 to 210 degrees F (80-100 Celsius), which can be really hot and uncomfortable. Infrared rays on the other hand penetrate directly into your body, allowing for a much more pleasant environmental temperature, usually between 110 – 125 degrees F (). Nearly everyone can enjoy the infrared sauna including children, older people, those with physical disabilities. It was originally developed by NASA, as a means for astronauts to exercise while in space. Infrared energy is so safe it is currently used in hospitals in incubators to warm and comfort newborn babies!
