Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional Saunas

478025511

Unlike traditional saunas (hot rock or wet/steam) which operate in excess of 180° F, infrared saunas have the benefit of being effective at a more comfortable operation temperature of 120°-150° F. Traditional saunas simply heat the air in the cabin, making the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breath. Infrared saunas are 7 times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxification because the infrared heat penetrates human tissues rather than simply heating the surface of the skin. By raising the body’s core temperature over 3 degrees, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins (80% water) as opposed to 3% toxins (97% water) with a traditional sauna.
