Is an Infrared Sauna better than a Traditional Sauna?

  1. Detoxification - One of the biggest infrared sauna health benefits is its ability to increase your blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins in the body.

  2.  Relaxation - Promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body's level of cortisol.  The heat generated helps to relax sore muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

  3. Circulation - It increases circulation in the body and can reduce inflammation if you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain.

  4. Weight Management - The heat generated will cause your core body temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate- the same as when you exercise.  The Journal of American Medical Association concluded that a 30 minute session could burn roughly 600 calories.

  5. Skin Purification - It can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation resulting in clearer, softer and healthier-looking skin.

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. This type of sauna is sometimes called a far-infrared sauna — "far" describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you.

There’s nothing quite like a 20-minute sweat session in a sauna. You feel more relaxed and rested after you’re done, and the heat helps relieve sore muscles and improves your overall health and well-being.

But if the high temperatures of a traditional sauna are just too much for you to handle, an infrared sauna may offer the benefits of a sauna without the extreme heat.

How do you use an Infrared Sauna?

There are guidelines you can follow, but ultimately, how you choose to use an infrared sauna is up to you. Here are some tips to get you started.

  • Drink water. Make sure you’re hydrated before going into an infrared sauna. Drink a glass of water before your session. You can also bring water into the sauna, especially if you’re sensitive to higher heats.

  • Clothing. How you dress is your choice. Some people will wear bathing suits, while others prefer to go in naked - wrapped in a towel.

  • What you can do while in the sauna. Relax, read, meditate, listen to music, or visit with friends. Just don’t go to sleep.

  • After the session is over. When your session is done, it’s suggested that you take your time and let your body cool down. Once cooled down, feel free to take a shower or bath. Just make sure you are drinking plenty of water.

  • Number of sessions per week. Most facilities that offer infrared sauna treatments recommend using the sauna three to four days per week. If you are healthy and tolerate the four days, you can use the sauna daily.

What should you know before trying infrared sauna?

There are a few things you should know before indulging in your first session.

  • Avoid using an infrared sauna if you’ve been drinking alcohol.

  • If you feel ill or have a fever, it’s best to wait to use the sauna until you’re feeling better.

  • Using an infrared sauna will cause you to sweat a lot, so you may feel lightheaded when you stand up. If this happens, make sure you get up slowly and sit down once you leave the sauna. Drink water immediately after finishing your session and wait for your body to cool down before doing anything else.

  • In extreme cases, some people may experience overheating (heat stroke and heat exhaustion) or dehydration.

If you have any health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart problems, or are under medical care, get cleared by your doctor before your first session. Even though infrared saunas have been found to be fairly safe, you don’t want to take any chances when it comes to your health and safety.
