How Different is a Traditional Sauna than an Infrared Sauna?
Traditional saunas range from 180 to 200 degrees. The temperatures of far infrared saunas are effective at a comfortable 120 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. This lower temperature results in a much more comfortable experience while achieving maximum results.
The far infrared rays act directly on the body (radiant energy) and not on the air (convection heating). Because of this direct heating, an infrared sauna has the potential to excrete up to 6 times more toxins from your subcutaneous layers of your skin. Fat, heavy metals, chemicals, and unwanted acids are excreted through sweat, creating an amazing way to detoxify your body all while burning up to 600 calories.
By resonating through the dermis (up to 2 inches deep), infrared rays stimulate the tissues, muscles, organs, joints, causing an acceleration of blood flow, increased healing, and increased metabolism. This can also result in a strengthened immune system and increased muscle strength by enriching the tissues with oxygen.
Infrared Saunas truly have the power to heal!
