Picture yourself stepping into a sanctuary of warmth. A space where stress melts away, muscles unwind and clarity emerges. Infrared saunas are increasingly popular in the health and wellness community for several reasons, including the numerous health benefits — and they just make you feel good! Improved immune systems, relief from joint pain, weight loss and detoxification are some of the various benefits you can experience from infrared saunas. 

Infrared Wavelengths

The sun lets off light you can and can't see. Infrared rays comprise one of these unseen spectrums. The invisible infrared wavelengths contribute to the sun's warmth, while ultraviolet wavelengths render it bright. 

The infrared spectrum has three categories: 

  • Near-infrared: Near-infrared is invisible to the eye, but it heats the core of your body. This wavelength helps heal wounds and increases the rate of cellular repair. 
  • Mid-infrared: This wavelength provides pain relief, stress reduction, improved circulation and skin health. These wavelengths penetrate deeper into tissue.
  • Far-infrared: This wavelength is similar to the heat your body gives off and is easily absorbed by the water molecules in the body, which then release its energy. Far-infrared helps get rid of unwanted chemicals through the skin by activating the sweat glands.

What Is an Infrared Sauna?

Our saunas are infrared therapy cabins. The sauna setting provides an ideal atmosphere for delivering infrared heat because inside, you're enveloped by infrared warmth. The black panels inside the sauna are our True Wave® far infrared heaters. The silver front heaters in our Sanctuary sauna models offer all three infrared wavelengths.

Instead of relying on steam or the conventional way of pouring water on hot rocks, infrared sauna heaters utilize the specific infrared spectra mentioned earlier to deliver health advantages. In an infrared sauna, the air temperature is less important than the quality of the infrared heat. All it takes is 15 minutes to warm up a Clearlight infrared sauna.

As your body absorbs the infrared heat, your core body temperature will increase, inducing a deep and relaxing sweat. With lower temperatures, you can enjoy longer sessions, resulting in more benefits. 

Benefits of Infrared Saunas

The benefits of infrared saunas extend far beyond relaxation. Incorporating regular sessions into your wellness routine can provide the following benefits: 

  • Detoxifying properties: Sweating allows your body to flush out toxins, heavy metals and impurities. 
  • Cardiovascular health: You could boost your heart function and lower blood pressure with regular sessions. 
  • Natural pain relief: Heat penetrates deep tissues, helping reduce inflammation and alleviate stiffness, which provides natural pain relief. 
  • Weight management: Sweating in an infrared sauna causes the body to burn calories, similar to moderate-intensity workouts. 
  • Mental clarity and mood enhancement: After a session, you can feel clearer-headed, more focused and in a better mood. The release of endorphins can promote feelings of happiness. 
  • Enhanced skin health: Sweating opens up pores, flushing trapped dirt and oil. Increased circulation delivers oxygen and nutrients to the skin, promoting cellular regeneration and a youthful glow. 

Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional and Steam Saunas

Traditional saunas use heat differently from infrared saunas. Traditional saunas run on one heater to warm the air. Infrared saunas use advanced therapy to directly heat the person inside and only a little heats the air. Infrared saunas heat up between 115-135 degrees Fahrenheit, while traditional saunas can reach 195 degrees Fahrenheit.

Infrared saunas offer the same level of relaxation as traditional saunas but with additional health benefits. Infrared saunas are dry saunas, making them a more comfortable experience, too. 

Other than the long list of health benefits, infrared saunas are more efficient, as they use less electricity by warming up quickly. 

Our Sanctuary Full Spectrum Saunas provide the benefits of the infrared wavelengths, and our Premier far-infrared Saunas give users the advantages of far-infrared wavelengths. Or, step into the world of wellness with a Clearlight infrared sauna.
