What is an infrared sauna?

Infrared saunas are wooden cabins or booths that are equipped with infrared heaters which raise your body temperature and cause you to sweat. This is in contrast to traditional (or “Finnish”) saunas, which use steam to heat the air around you. The result is a detoxifying, pleasantly warm, relaxing experience that provides numerous health benefits

How does an infrared sauna work?

Infrared saunas use invisible infrared light to provide warmth and promote healing in the body. Infrared light, which is on the electromagnetic spectrum, is absorbed by the body and converted into thermal energy. It passes through your skin and into fat cells, which helps your body rid itself of toxins stored in those cells.

What are the benefits of using an infrared sauna?

The health benefits of using an infrared sauna include improved circulation, detoxification, faster recovery from injuries, reduced inflammation, stress and fatigue reduction, boosted immune system, better heart health, improved appearance of skin, and even weight loss and increased metabolism.

Are infrared saunas safe?

Infrared saunas are completely safe to use. Infrared wavelengths are so safe that they’re even used in hospitals to keep newborns warm! Additionally, Clearlight© infrared saunas have virtually zero EMF and ELF and are crafted out of certified non-toxic materials.

However, there are some groups that should be cautious about using infrared saunas. Pregnant women and people with heart conditions or metal implants should consult their doctor before using their Clearlight©.

What makes your infrared saunas different from traditional saunas?

The difference between infrared saunas and traditional saunas is the way they produce heat. While infrared saunas utilise infrared light to warm the body directly, traditional saunas generate heat by warming the air with steam. Infrared saunas typically operate at lower temperatures and provide a less humid and more comfortable sauna experience than traditional saunas.

What temperature settings are available?

Our infrared saunas can go up to 80°C, but they’re designed to be most therapeutic at temperatures of 45°C to 55°C. 

An infrared sauna’s max temperature is limited by its surrounding ambient temperature. In colder climates and outdoor locations, our saunas may only reach temperatures in the 50s, whereas in hot climates or in indoor spaces, they may reach the high 60s to 70s.
