Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared lamps (that use electromagnetic radiation) to warm your body directly.
Our saunas use infrared panels instead of conventional heat to easily penetrate human tissue, heating up your body before heating up the air.
An infrared sauna can operate at a lower temperature (usually between 120˚F and 140˚F) than a traditional sauna, which is typically between 150˚F and 180˚F.

Weight Loss Study
The Infrared Sauna offers many benefits such as A study done at Binghamton University found that using an infrared sauna three times a week can reduce body fat by about 4 percent over 4 months. For someone who weighs 175 pounds, that comes out to a 7 pound loss, and in this study participants did not change their diet or exercise habits at all.
The researchers hypothesized that increasing the body’s temperature and metabolism in an infrared sauna elevated human growth hormone production, which helps the body break down fat. I always tell folks looking to lose weight to be sure to drink plenty of water before and after use of the sauna, which will help speed up their metabolisms even more, and will also result in their craving water where they once reached for coffee, soda, or alcohol.
