Far Infrared Sauna - Health Benefits
A safe, effective therapy infrared saunas offer a number of advantages over a traditional sauna which produce additional health benefits. First, while a traditional sauna heats the body via the air, infrared saunas cause heat to be directly absorbed into the tissues, resulting in a faster and deeper heat transfer. This raises the body’s core temperature and induces a powerful sweating response. Second, infrared saunas are much more comfortable than traditional saunas, because the air surrounding you remains much cooler. This is more beneficial for the respiratory system, and allows many people who would otherwise avoid saunas or leave a sauna after only a few minutes, to enjoy full sessions of infrared therapy.
