A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you causing a much more comfortable sauna experience.
Infrared saunas are said to duplicate the healthy frequencies of our own cells, which causes the water in the cells to react. This cellular reaction causes toxins in the cells to be eliminated and excreted in sweat cleansing your body naturally. Additionally, increased body temperature triggers the production of white blood cells and killer T cells, which boosts your immune system. The biggest benefit of the infrared sauna is your skin because of the increased blood circulation, sweating, and improved elasticity. Reported health benefits include relaxation, stress relief, pain relief, detoxification, weight loss, cellulite control, cardiovascular health, beautification of skin, tissue elasticity, immune system enhancement, suppression of cancer cells, and mood elevation.
