In recent years more and more people are moving from traditional saunas to an infrared sauna. But what is it? What are the infrared sauna benefits? What makes it different from a traditional sauna?
Infrared saunas use infrared panels to heat your body directly instead of just the air around you. This allows for these saunas to not have to produce extreme heat like traditional saunas. This creates the ability to have a better sweat at a lower heat. Since it is a lower heat, it allows you to stay in the sauna for longer periods at a time. The infrared sauna benefits are similar to those of a traditional sauna, which include relaxation, detoxification, weight loss, better sleep, and so on. This booth has added chromotherapy and Vibrational Resonance Therapy for added benefits.
To understand what an infrared sauna is, we must also understand how it works. According to an article by Jacuzzi, it all starts with infrared wavelengths.
“The sun produces a combination of visible and invisible light, and one of those invisible spectrums is infrared rays. Invisible infrared wavelengths are what makes the sun feel warm (and ultraviolet wavelengths are what make it bright). Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body as they increase the thermal energy in the body. Infrared does this without any of the harmful rays of sunlight.”
The lamps in an infrared sauna give off these waves, that are not harmful to the body, that make your body produce sweat helping with relaxation and detonation.
