Infrared vs. traditional sauna

 

  • Traditional saunas use hot stones and steam and operate at temperatures of around 76-88 degrees C.

  • Infrared saunas emit radiant heat that warms the user directly penetrating up to 45mm into the body and results in the normal sweating that occurs in a traditional sauna but at a temperature usually between 30-50 degrees C.

 

In this gentle and deep penetrating heat you will sweat 2-3 times more than in a traditional sauna whilst in a much more comfortable and relaxing temperature. This means that in the infrared sauna toxins and stored fats will be removed much more effectively than in the traditional sauna.

Elimination of toxins through the skin: The skin is an organ of elimination and consequently skin eruptions are an indication of toxicity and the body's attempt to eliminate them. This process can be assisted by the massage movements which increase the circulation to the skin and de-congest the pores. Effleurage movements are of particular use. Another effective method involves a compression and an upward stretch of the superficial tissues, primarily the skin and subcutaneous fascia. (more info)
