The Infrared sauna delivers safe and radiant heat that gently melts away the day’s stresses. It operates at a safer and more comfortable temperature of 110-130F. It reaches deeper to 1 ½ inches below your skin surface while producing two to three times more sweat than regular saunas.
Radiant heat is a simple form of energy that heats objects directly through a process called conversion, without having to heat the air in between. Radiant heat is also called Infrared heat. A conventional sauna relies on indirect means of heat; first on convection (air currents) then conduction (direct contact of hot air on the skin) to produce its healing effect on us. In an Infrared system, less than 20% of the infrared energy heats the air, leaving over 80% available to be directly converted to heat within our bodies.
While you are relaxing, your body is hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. In a single 30-minute sauna session you may burn up to 900 calories.
