3 Reasons Why You Need An Infrared Sauna For Your Home

Infrared saunas play a critical role in providing a therapeutic experience to people through infrared waves. Most high-quality saunas provide far-infrared rays with a wavelength of 6 to 12 microns, providing maximum benefits to the human body.

With the potential to penetrate 1.5 to 2 inches into the body for deep heat exchange and a rising core body temperature for detoxification, saunas can be good for you and your health. Here are some other reasons why you need an infrared sauna for your home.

Infrared Technology        

High-quality infrared saunas have carbon-based heaters such as the True Wave™ far-infrared heaters. Their energy output is tuned in very close to a sauna bather’s body’s radiant energy. Its state-of-the-art technology allows the body to absorb about 93% of the far-infrared skin, providing the skin with maximum benefits.

These saunas don’t rely on indirect means of heat like conventional saunas. Therefore, they don’t have to use convection (air currents) and conduction to produce heat for your body. While the ideal temperature for traditional hot-air saunas is between 180° to 220°F, infrared saunas like the Therasauna saunas work best between 100° to 125°F.

Heat Safety

Infrared saunas provide the kind of heat that’s essential for human life. A human body must exchange infrared heat in the far-infrared band instead of a middle or near-infrared band.

You experience heat all around you in an infrared sauna. The infrared heat from True Wave™ heaters is similar to the warmth emanating from your palms when you move your hands rigorously about ½ inches apart. It’s a safe heating method, making saunas worthy of investment.

Better than a Traditional Sauna

While traditional saunas produce heat by microwaves, high-quality infrared saunas use low-EMF True Wave™ Carbon/Ceramic to produce far-infrared heat, similar to heat produced by the sun and the human body.

These are energy and cost-efficient saunas that use only 20% of the energy to heat a room, allowing the body to produce the rest of the energy on its own. Furthermore, far-infrared heat from infrared saunas penetrates deep below the skin within a typical 20–45 minute session.

Infrared saunas will leave you feeling refreshed, detoxed, and invigorated, unlike conventional saunas, which may make you feel depleted by the end of a session.
