What is Infrared Sauna?
An infrared sauna is different from a traditional sauna due to how it generates heat and the increased benefits that it provides to the user’s body. Infrared saunas generate heat through infrared light, which is an invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. Rather than simply warming the air, the infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly. This raises the core body temperature and produces a deep detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Infrared is most significantly known for it’s ability to increase blood circulation which, in itself, has many positive effects on the body. Infrared saunas also help boost the user’s metabolism, provides detoxification, and promotes healthy skin.
Origins of Infrared Sauna
Infrared therapies began in the early to mid 20th century in Germany and have been actively developed by Japanese doctors and therapists for the last forty years. Since the early 1980's, infrared therapy has been further refined and sold in the United States and many European countries.
