Below are some of the health benefits of using an infrared sauna that have been observed in recent scientific studies (1, 2).
- 40-60% pain reduction in arthritic participants
- Weight loss and improvements in body composition
- Improved sleep
- Reduced blood pressure
- Improved fasting blood glucose
Both traditional and infrared saunas have many health benefits, however Infrared saunas work much differently than traditional saunas. Infrared saunas heat up to 110-130 degrees Fahrenheit while traditional saunas are between 190-210. Many people find the lower temperature of the infrared saunas to be more relaxing and comfortable than the higher heat traditional saunas. Traditional saunas rely on heating the air which, heats the occupant through convection. An infrared sauna uses infrared elements which radiate heat that penetrates more deeply than traditional saunas causing the body to sweat more causing you to enjoy the many health benefits without having the discomfort of the extreme heat produced by traditional saunas.
The cardiovascular demand experienced during an infrared sauna session (sweating, vasodilation, increased heart rate, and increased cardiac output) is similar to that achieved by walking at a moderate pace. Not feeling motivated to exercise? A relaxing session in an infrared sauna will give you some of the same benefits without all the effort and motivation needed to exercise.
As infrared heat penetrates more deeply (about 3–4 cm into fat tissue and the neuromuscular system) than warmed air (only a few millimeters), users develop a more vigorous sweat at a lower temperature than they would in traditional saunas.
Numerous research studies show that regular use of Infrared saunas can be very relaxing and help reduce pain, improve body composition, improve sleep, reduce blood pressure, and improve fasting blood glucose levels.
