Some people like the sauna, others can't stand it. But we feel the anti-sauna people haven't tried an infrared sauna yet. Those who have an infrared sauna in their homes swear by them. But what? What's so special about an infrared sauna?
An infrared sauna is a special type of sauna that uses light to create heat. In a traditional sauna, heat is used to warm the air, which then heats the body. This is the main reason why many people can't handle a traditional sauna - it's too much to handle. However, in an infrared sauna, light heat the body directly without warming the air.
Infrared saunas use infrared lamps to warm the body, penetrating deeply. In return, the body detoxifies gently. Since the body is directly heated, you can stay longer in an infrared sauna to reap the benefits.
Our skin is the largest organ and is the main way we eliminate toxins from our system. Aka, we sweat it out. By sweating via an infrared sauna session, the body can activate its sweat glands and eliminate toxins. However, infrared offers more than just detoxification. So what are the benefits of infrared saunas?
The benefits of infrared saunas
