How do infrared saunas work?

Updated 2 months ago by Team SaunaSpace

Our particular spectrum of infrared therapy focuses on near infrared (NIR) light, which penetrates deeply to heat you from the inside out. That means you sweat faster and the air stays cooler than in traditional saunas.

Most other infrared saunas focus on far infrared (FIR) light, which is absorbed by water and doesn’t penetrate as deeply. Our spectrum does include some FIR, but we find that it is not the most efficient way to receive the benefits of sauna, which is why we don’t emphasize this part of the spectrum.
