Basics of Infrared Saunas and Benefits of Infrared Energy on the Body

A far infrared sauna provides many benefits over a traditional sauna. It is the modern technological improvement over an ancient tradition. Whether a person is entirely new to saunas or is just looking for new options, FIR saunas deserve consideration.

How an Infrared Sauna Produces Heat

All saunas work on the same basic principle. A person sits in a small room and his body is heated. His muscles relax and he begins to perspire. This process has a variety of health benefits, including muscle relaxation, pain relief and detoxification. Traditional saunas heat the entire room using electric heaters, fire, steam or hot rocks. Most people cannot withstand the temperatures in a traditional sauna for very long before becoming uncomfortable.
