What are infrared saunas?

About Infrared Saunas

Unlike traditional saunas that use heated steam, an infrared sauna uses far infrared ray radiation to heat the body. Rather than just heating the air, infrared saunas heat the body directly with infrared light. An infrared heater produces radiant heat that in turn warms the skin, much like the light from the sun – but without the harmful UV rays.

Like with a traditional sauna, infrared saunas cause the user to sweat, which purifies and detoxes the body. Unlike traditional saunas, however, infrared heat penetrates deeper into the body than steam heat -- up to an inch and a half -- stimulating tissues and resulting in multiple health benefits.

Saunas.com offers several brands of infrared sauna rooms from manufacturers such as Polar Sauna, SaunaGen, and The Caatu Series by Sauna Warehouse. Talk to an expert at saunas.com to determine which type of infrared sauna room fits your lifestyle and budget.
