An Infrared sauna, is a dry sauna that operates at a temperature of 40-60 °C compared to a traditional sauna which operates at approximately 90-100 ° C. It provides a soft and dry heat at a therapeutic infrared band (2-25 microns) allowing for comfortable breathing during a treatment.
During an Infrared sauna treatment, rays of Infrared safely and comfortably penetrate the skin up to 2” deep. The Infrared penetration stimulates the deep tissues of the body to support organ detoxification. At the same time, sweating is enhanced (up to 2-3 times more than traditional saunas) for further detoxification through the bodies largest detoxification organ, the skin.
