What is an Infrared Sauna?

An Infrared Sauna is a distinctive type of sauna that utilizes infrared light to produce heat. Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air to subsequently warm the body, infrared saunas directly heat the body without raising the ambient temperature. This specific sauna is often termed a far-infrared sauna, with “far” denoting the position of the infrared waves on the light spectrum.

This specialized medical treatment allows the lungs to absorb more oxygen than would be possible under normal atmospheric pressures. This increase in oxygen saturation aids the body in various healing processes and triggers the release of growth factors.

How Infrared Sauna Treatment Works

Infrared heat therapy utilizes infrared light to generate heat and typically operates at 120°F and 140°F. This infrared light penetrates the skin, directly warming the body and raising its core temperature. Unlike a regular sauna, which uses various heaters and heating elements, an infrared sauna targets the body directly. The infrared light waves target molecules in the body, causing them to vibrate and produce heat. This process stimulates the circulatory system, similar to the effects of a workout, leading to a range of health benefits.

How Infrared Saunas Differ from Normal Saunas

Infrared saunas and traditional heat saunas both can be effective alternative therapy options as they offer a range of health benefits However, both operate on different principles and deliver unique therapy experiences.

An Infrared sauna uses infrared light to heat the body directly. A traditional sauna, on the other hand, generates hot air around you (without infrared), which then warms your body. This fundamental difference results in varied experiences and benefits between the two types of treatments.

Here’s a breakdown of the sauna differences:

  • Heating Mechanism: An Infrared sauna uses infrared light to heat the body directly, while a traditional sauna heats the surrounding air.
  • Temperature: An infrared sauna operates at lower temperatures, typically between 120°F and 140°F, whereas traditional a sauna can reach temperatures of up to 190°F.
  • Penetration: Infrared light can penetrate deeper into the body, providing therapeutic treatment effects at the cellular level.
    Sweating: An infrared sauna can induce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, while a traditional sauna produces a more surface-level sweat.
  • Ambient Air: The air in an infrared sauna remains cooler, making it more breathable and comfortable for some users.

 

What are the Benefits and Effects of an Infrared Heat Sauna?

Infrared therapy presents a myriad of health advantages. Many are attracted to saunas as they induce reactions similar to those elicited by moderate exercise, such as intense sweating and an increased heart rate. The infrared saunas at Alkaline Souls achieve these effects at milder temperatures than regular saunas, making them a preferred choice for those who find traditional saunas too intense.

Research has explored the therapeutic potential of infrared saunas in addressing chronic health challenges, revealing promising results. Conditions such as high blood pressure, heart failure, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, headaches, type 2 diabetes, and arthritis have been studied. However, it’s essential to note that more extensive and precise studies are needed to solidify these findings.

Benefits of Infrared Sauna

Here are some of the studied and anecdotal benefits of infrared heat therapy:

  • Detoxification: Experience a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside, aiding in the body’s natural healing process. Anti-
