Infrared Sauna: What Can It Do for You?

Why Infrared? What is Infrared heat? Infrared heat is simply a form of energy that is directly transmitted onto objects because of its specific wavelength. It has nothing to do with ultraviolet light which gives you sunburn and damages your skin. Where conventional saunas transfer heat by circulating hot air, thus warm your body from your head, the infrared heat rays warm your body directly. This allows an in-depth heat in a more pleasant temperature of 110-150F(43 - 66C), thus providing more health benefits and a highly enjoyable and comfortable environment.
