Infrared saunas are often called soft saunas because they produce higher humidity at lower temperatures. Some argue that these saunas are not “true” to the sauna tradition.
Infrared saunas, sometimes referred to as "far-Infrared saunas," produce far-infrared rays. Far-Infrared Rays are the invisible portion of the light spectrum emitted by the sun. Far-Infrared Rays carry heat deep into the skin and muscle tissue without high surface temperatures. Far-Infrared Rays heat the body directly which raises the core temperature and produces a deep penetrating, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level.
Because if the deep heat and detoxifying nature, infrared saunas are very popular with the medical community. Very often local MDs, homeopathic doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and physical therapists recommend infrared saunas.
It takes approximately 10 minutes to heat up a Far-Infrared Sauna.
Infrared saunas are designed and finished to be used indoors only. This is not an outdoor product.
