8 Benefits of Using an Infrared Sauna

You’re most likely familiar with a traditional sauna: the wooden box, the rocks, the heat and the humidity opens your pores and causes your body to try to cool itself by sweating profusely. It’s relaxing. It’s detoxifying. It downright feels great.

But the main reason we love cutting-edge infrared saunas is because they don’t bother heating up the air in a sauna. Instead, infrared saunas use infrared lamps to warm your body straight on in a process called electromagnetic radiation.

It’s a unique concept, but essentially the infrared panels heat up your body at a faster rate than they heat up the air, so you get all of the sweating without all of the heat.

One practical plus (from an energy and cost standpoint) is that the infrared saunas can work at a lower temperature than traditional saunas and some users claim the heat penetrates deeper into the body.

At this point you may be asking yourself if there is a benefit to infrared saunas over traditional ones. While both forms of sauna induce rest and relaxation, because an infrared sauna doesn’t rely on treating an entire enclosed area with extreme heat, many people say they are able to enjoy the sauna longer with the infrared lights, which increases your core temperature.

In addition, some people find traditional saunas uncomfortable. Many find that they are able to tolerate the infrared light panels without any discomfort.
