The sauna was first invented over 2000 years ago. It has many well-known benefits, such as the ability to flush toxins, relax the muscles, and relieve stress. Many people also use saunas to burn calories and lose weight. However, to enjoy these advantages you must stay inside the sauna for at least 15 minutes. Most traditional saunas run at up to 194°F in temperature, which is often too hot for many people. Users of these types of saunas have reported getting light headed, and even experiencing breathing difficulties. As a result, their sauna sessions seem like unpleasant experiences.
Fortunately, the Infrared home sauna offers the same advantages of the traditional sauna - if not more – while eliminating the disadvantages.
Convection Heat vs. Radiant Heat
Traditional saunas rely upon hot-air convection to warm the occupant. Unfortunately, this type of heat can quickly overheat the skin’s surface, and does not actually penetrate deep into the human body . Infrared saunas, on the other hand, utilize radiant heat. This type of heat directly transfers energy from a heat source to an object. Absorption occurs at a cellular level, much deeper than a traditional steam sauna can reach. The temperature inside an infrared sauna is also much cooler than a traditional sauna, (30 to 70°F cooler, in fact), making it more tolerable for those sensitive to the heat.
