We've already mentioned that it uses far less electricity to run (which is great for everyone) and heats up much more quickly than a traditional sauna. In addition, traditional dry saunas employ temperatures as high as 185 - 195 degrees, which can overwhelm those who are more sensitive to heat.
Infrared saunas utilize a much milder temperature environment of between 120 - 150 degrees. However, because the heat of infrared saunas travels much deeper into the body, they cause a more vigorous sweat at lower temperatures, which means you receive sauna's detoxification benefits without the potential heat overwhelm.
Additionally, infrared saunas don't use steam, which is fabulous for those of us living in humid, rainforesty WNC! :) So, how do you give it a try and experience the benefits for yourself?
