Infrared Saunas

The Most Effective Infrared Sauna Collection

There's a type of sauna that relies on special heaters to penetrate deep into your muscles, tissue, and joints, providing you with the world's most effective heat therapy. This sauna type is known as an infrared sauna

Infrared saunas are specialized saunas that utilize infrared heaters to penetrate deep into your body's tissue. This heat goes far past what the surface level of a traditional sauna can offer you. While traditional saunas still offer a wealth of benefits, infrared saunas are the right choice for those seeking a much more targeted approach.

In case you're not fully convinced, why not take our quick three-minute survey? It'll help you figure out which sauna is perfect for your needs. 

Now, let's discover all the benefits an infrared sauna can offer and why you should consider this type of sauna over a traditional one.

What is an Infrared Sauna?

How is an infrared sauna different than a traditional sauna? Infrared saunas heat up much quicker than traditional saunas. This saves you time by allowing you to get in and out at a moment's notice. Furthermore, while a traditional sauna's heat can be effective for a whole range of issues, some aren't able to tolerate its high temperatures.

An infrared sauna remedies this issue by offering lower temperatures that can still penetrate deep into your body. However, an infrared sauna can still reach temperatures well into the triple digits, but it isn't as hot as a traditional sauna as it stays in the 110 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit range.

This heat, however, is known as radiant heat. An infrared sauna's heaters work to heat up your body directly rather than the air within the sauna itself.

The Benefits of an Infrared Sauna

There are a ton of benefits an infrared sauna can offer you. 

Here are just a few of them:

Improved Circulation

As the radiant heat travels deep into your body, it dilates your blood vessels, which increases your circulation. Ultimately, this leads to a bunch of additional benefits, including better overall cardiovascular health, reduced risk of heart disease, and lower blood pressure.


Our bodies are constantly exposed to toxins, whether it is in the air we breathe, the food we eat, or even the beverages we drink. These toxins can cause fatigue, irritability, digestion issues, memory loss, and skin problems. While using an infrared sauna, the heat warms your body from the inside out as it penetrates deep into your tissues.

We also sweat while in a sauna, which causes all these toxins to flush through the skin. Harmful toxins like mercury and lead leave the body and can easily be wiped right off while you are showering after your sauna session.

Better Mental Health

This might sound like a stretch, but it isn't. An infrared sauna can really boost your mental health because the sauna helps excrete halogens like bromide and fluoride that improve thyroid function. In case you didn't know, your thyroid helps regulate your mood, energy levels, and metabolism, so an increase in output for all three of those functions is optimum. 

Reduced Stress

We all know that all types of saunas are great for reducing stress. What's better than taking time to relax and unwind after a hard day? Saunas help increase your endorphins, which are your 'feel good' chemicals, and reduce cortisol your ‘stress hormone’. 

It is also said that hyperthermia (or exposing your body to extreme heat) rapidly decreases depression. This also leads to you having a better night's sleep too.

Aids in Weight Loss

Yes, infrared saunas can help you shed a couple of extra pounds. An infrared sauna raises your core body temperature, which increases metabolic activity and heart rate, leading you to burn more calories.

The Different Types of Infrared Saunas

Now that you know the benefits of an infrared sauna, let's explore the factors to consider when choosing your sauna.

Types of Infrared Saunas

Yes, there is more than one type of infrared sauna. These saunas are distinguished by the rays they emit. This includes near, middle, and far-infrared rays, and each has a set of benefits that go along with them.

Near-infrared saunas: These saunas have the shortest wavelength and penetrate deep into the skin, meaning they are most beneficial for problems like wound healing, pain relief, and skin rejuvenation.

Mid-infrared saunas: A mid-infrared sauna doesn't penetrate as deep as a near-infrared sauna, but it does spread more consistently throughout your body. This aids in muscle discomfort.

Far-infrared saunas: These saunas boast cellular-level penetration, meaning they are best for detoxification, better cardiovascular health, and aiding in weight loss. 

Things to Consider With an Infrared Sauna Heater

The heating panel is probably the most important part of your infrared sauna. Be sure to be on the lookout for a sauna that emits low electromagnetic fields (EMF) and is made of carbon or ceramic, which are the safest and most energy-efficient. 

The difference between the two is that carbon heaters have the most even heat distribution, and ceramic heaters heat up the quickest. There is also a hybrid option of the two to maximize both of these benefits.
