What is an far-infrared sauna?
An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light energy to create heat. These saunas are also sometimes called far-infrared saunas because these waves of non-visible light fall on the “far” end of the light spectrum.
As the energy of these heat waves penetrate deeply into the body, infrared sauna users are able to develop a more vigorous sweat at a lower, more comfortable temperature than in a traditional, steamy sauna.
Traditional saunas heat the air, often to above 180 degrees, while most people find that a infrared sauna temperature setting between 120-130 degrees is optimal.
Infrared saunas use much less energy and provide a more efficient, comfortable, and relaxing experience.
