Infrared Sauna TherapyInfrared saunas are ideal in their design as they operate at safer, lower temperatures compared to conventional steam-based saunas. This feature makes breathing more comfortable and is considered safer, thus making infrared sauna therapy a better alternative for a greater variety of individuals. Although an infrared sauna operates at only 110 F to 130 F, compared to a conventional sauna which operates at 180 F to 210 F, radiant heat from an infrared sauna helps the body produce two to three times more sweat

These crucial differences help to explain why the health benefits available through infrared therapy are not attainable throughout the use of a conventional sauna.

Radiant heat is also very therapeutic for your overall well being. It helps to support your body’s natural ‘defense’ system to easily ward off harmful contaminates. An infrared based system can warm your body to a much greater degree and much more efficient manner than a conventional sauna, as its energy output is primarily used to convert energy directly to heat inside the body and not to create excessively hot air which then only superficially heats the skin. This radiant heat is absorbed by your body to a depth of over 1.5 inches below the skin.

These crucial differences help to explain why the health benefits available through infrared therapy are not attainable throughout the use of a conventional sauna.

This deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. In Europe, infrared heat is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. In addition, infrared therapy in Japan has been effective for relief of pain associated with backache, bursitis, fibromyalgia, headache, sprains, strains and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.
