Infrared Saunas; what's the hype about?

Updated: Sep 20, 2023

Infrared saunas have gained popularity in recent years due to their health benefits.


What's the difference between an Infrared and a traditional Sauna?

Infrared saunas and traditional saunas differ in their heat sources and methods of delivering heat. Traditional saunas use heated rocks to create steam, raising the room temperature to higher levels (70-80 degrees) with low humidity. Infrared saunas emit infrared radiant heat directly to the body, operating at lower temperatures (50-60 degrees) with slightly higher humidity. The experience in traditional saunas is characterized by intense heat and steam, promoting relaxation and detoxification, while infrared saunas offer a milder heat experience




What health benefits can we expect from our Infrared experience?

1. Detoxification and Cleansing:

Infrared saunas promote detoxification by inducing a deep sweat at lower temperatures compared to traditional saunas. The infrared heat penetrates deeper into the skin, helping to remove toxins accumulated within the body. Regular use of an infrared sauna can support the elimination of heavy metals, such as mercury and lead, as well as other harmful substances, resulting in a feeling of rejuvenation and improved overall health.


2. Cardiovascular Health:

Studies have shown that regular use of infrared saunas can have positive effects on cardiovascular health. The heat from an infrared sauna helps increase heart rate and improve blood flow, contributing to enhanced circulation throughout the body. This can potentially lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease, and promote cardiovascular efficiency.


3. Pain Relief and Muscle Recovery:

The deep penetrating heat generated by infrared saunas can provide effective relief for muscle and joint pain, such as that associated with arthritis or muscle strains. Additionally, the increased blood circulation resulting from infrared sauna use aids in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues, promoting faster recovery and reducing inflammation.


4. Stress Reduction and Relaxation:

One of the significant benefits of infrared saunas is their ability to induce deep relaxation and alleviate stress. The gentle, soothing heat creates a tranquil environment that helps promote mental well-being and reduce anxiety. Regular sessions in an infrared sauna can result in improved sleep quality and a more balanced mood.


How Often can I use an Infrared Sauna?

The frequency of using an infrared sauna depends on individual preferences and health conditions. As a general guideline, it is recommended to start with 1-2 sessions per week for approximately 30-40 minutes.
