What is an Infrared?
Far infrared heat is a form of radiant energy. The sun is an example of the principal source of infrared radiant energy that we experience on a daily basis. All human bodies absorb, as well as emit, infrared radiant energy. Infrared Sauna heat emitters produce a specific bandwidth of radiant energy that matches the vibrational frequency of the human body. Infrared heat is completely safe and all objects give off and receive infrared heat. In fact, it is so safe, hospitals use similar heaters to warm newborns. Infrared is a part of nature and essential for life.

What’s the Difference Between Infrared Saunas and Traditional Saunas?
Unlike traditional hot rock based saunas that operate at well in excess of 200°F, infrared heat has the benefit of being effective at a much more comfortable temperature of 100°-150°F. Traditional saunas focus on heating the air as opposed to the body directly. This can make the experience uncomfortably hot and make breathing difficult rather than a pleasant detoxification and relaxation environment. Since infrared heat penetrates human tissue as opposed to simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are about seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can typically generate a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only 3% toxins in a traditional sauna.
