HOW DOES AN INFRARED SAUNA WORK?

Infrared light penetrates several inches into the body and creates heat, resulting in a whole-body hyperthermia on a cellular level to make you sweat. This invisible light heats the body, not the surrounding air, so it is more comfortable and allows you to enjoy a longer session than with traditional steam saunas.

Sweating is a great way to rid the body of toxins (drugs, pollutants, pesticides and heavy metals), which in turn improves the immune system and overall health. Sweating is also a great way to increase metabolic rate and reduce stress -- it’s like a workout without the work -- burning 600+ calories per session. Repeated exposure to heat from infrared light results in cumulative health benefits. Unlike sunbathing, exposure to infrared heat therapy is safe and won’t cause the skin to burn. We recommend 20 to 40-minute sessions.
