Far-Infrared (FIR) Saunas use infrared energy to increase body temperature and encourage sweating and detoxification.
Repeated heating and sweating through sauna therapy:
- Improves circulation
- Speeds up metabolism and facilitates weight loss
- Improves tissue oxygenation and wound healing
- Reduces pain
- Improves skin function and tone
Heat from an infrared sauna penetrates deeper into the body than traditional saunas. This causes sweating at lower ambient temperatures and enhances detoxification of deeper tissue levels. In general, FIR saunas are more comfortable than regular saunas, as the air remains cooler and easier to breath.
