Are infrared Sauna’s Safe?

Health Professionals have been using far infrared technology for years. Have you ever gone to a Physiotherapist with a sprain and they put a red heat lamp on it? Well that’s infrared. Infrared treatment is also widely used in burn units to accelerate healing and hospital baby care incubators. Far infrared is from the safest end of the sun’s spectrum and is also something that our warm body generates.

How does it work?

The infrared Sauna uses infrared heat to heat the body. How? Electricity is run through the heaters on the walls, which through the resistance of the heater itself, increases the surface temperature of the heater. Once the heater reaches a certain temperature, the light (which we perceive as heat) emitted from the heater is far infrared heat. This light (let’s call it heat to save confusion) interacts with the body directly and penetrates 4 – 5 cm into the skin. Creating a cardiovascular workout on the body whilst removing heavy metals and toxins from deep within the skin. As the sauna heats the body directly, it wastes much less energy heating the air compared with a traditional sauna. You can put a bottle of water in front of an infrared heater and it won’t get warm, they are designed to heat YOU (ihealth Saunas 2020).
