Benefits of Infrared Sauna ?

There are some benefits of infrared sauna over a conventional sauna. If you like saunas, you’ll love infrared saunas.

You’ll find the heat in an infrared sauna very comfortable, pleasant. In fact, many people report that they use their infrared sauna to promote healthy sleep

The better infrared saunas even have an air vent, allowing for fresh, oxygen-rich air to enter. The infrared energy stimulates blood circulation and all blood vessels fill themselves with oxygen-rich blood that gets transported to your muscles and organs.

You’ll appreciate the circulation of fresh air double when you enjoy taking long sessions or sessions together with family members.

Warm-up time.

Infrared saunas warm up in 15 to 20 minutes. A traditional sauna takes 30 to 60 minutes to warm up. Warm-up time is definately one of the benefits of infrared sauna.

Warm up time can be an issue with outdoor infrared saunas if you live in an area with colder outside temperatures.

Heat penetration.

In a traditional sauna your body is warmed by the environmental heat. This requires temperatures of up to 170 to 210 degrees F (80 – 100 Celsius), which can be uncomfortable. Infrared rays penetrate directly into your body, allowing for a much more pleasant environmental temperature. Even children, older people, or physically disabled people can enjoy the benefits of an infrared sauna.


Infrared saunas are cheap in use, a traditional sauna can double your power bill. Depending on the brand and type, you can enjoy your sauna 2 to 3 times a week during 30 minutes for about 10 dollars a month. For most models you don’t even need special wiring, all you need is a standard outlet.
