types of infrared sauna

Saunas have been used for centuries to treat illnesses and detoxify the body. Traditional saunas warm the air around you to induce sweating, which helps rid the body of toxins. While traditional dry and wet saunas can be effective, they can be too hot and uncomfortable for many sauna users. Worse, they can cause dehydration, burns, and other health problems.

Infrared saunas are a new type of sauna. Unlike traditional saunas, infrared saunas don’t rely on heating the air in your space. Instead, they use infrared light to warm your body directly, causing a more intense sweat at a lower temperature.

This makes them more effective at detoxifying the body and much more comfortable. Infrared saunas can also provide other health benefits, like easing muscle pain, improving blood circulation, and even helping with weight loss.

The Sauna Life has a variety of different infrared saunas to choose from. Each one is designed to provide the optimal sauna experience, whether you’re looking for relaxation, detoxification, or pain relief. Read more to find out which infrared sauna is right for you.

What Are the Different Types of Infrared Saunas Sold by The Sauna Life?

Infrared saunas heat your body directly with infrared light rather than heating the air around you. Infrared light therapy is proven to have various benefits for your health.

There are different types of infrared saunas, depending on the infrared wavelengths they emit. The three most common are near-infrared, mid-infrared, and far-infrared.

  • Near-infrared Sauna: Near-infrared saunas emit the shortest wavelengths, which are closer to the visible spectrum. Near-infrared (NIR) light penetrates the skin deeply, providing various skin benefits by stimulating collagen production and cell regeneration. They’re also great for energy production and wound healing.
  • Mid-infrared Sauna: Mid-infrared saunas emit wavelengths that penetrate the skin deeper than near-infrared but aren’t as deep as far-infrared. They are known to improve blood flow and metabolism.
  • Far-infrared Sauna: Far-infrared light waves are the longest and closest to the natural infrared heat the human body emits. The far-infrared range deeply penetrates human tissue and raises the body’s core temperature, causing you to sweat profusely and detoxify at a cellular level. Far infrared rays are the most effective at weight loss, muscle recovery, and pain and stress relief.
  • Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna: This type of infrared sauna emits all three types of infrared wavelengths: near, mid, and far. This makes them the most effective at providing all the potential health benefits of infrared therapy.

There are also different types of infrared sauna heaters, such as:

  • Ceramic heaters: Ceramic heaters are the most common type of infrared sauna heater. They use ceramic heating panels to emit infrared waves, which are more durable, long-lasting, and generate a lot of heat.
  • Carbon heaters: A carbon infrared sauna heater is made of carbon panels that generate long-wave infrared heat. Carbon heaters heat up and distribute heat evenly and quickly. This allows for a safer and longer sauna session.
  • Ceramic-carbon combination heaters: A ceramic-carbon combination infrared sauna heater combines the best of both worlds. Ceramic-carbon heaters blend the heating power of the ceramic rods and the efficiency of the carbon fiber heaters. This makes for an efficient, evenly-heated sauna that is perfect for any sauna therapy.

Each type of infrared sauna has its own benefits. If you’re unsure which one is right for you, our team at The Sauna Life can help you choose the perfect sauna based on your needs. We offer several different types of infrared saunas.

Outdoor Saunas

An outdoor sauna is usually portable, so that you can set it up in your backyard or on a deck. Outdoor saunas are perfect for people who want to enjoy the benefits of an infrared sauna in a vast, open space.

Compared to indoor saunas, outdoor saunas offer a more natural and immersive experience. You can enjoy the fresh air and stunning views while you sweat it out in your sauna. They are built to withstand the elements and can be used year-round, even in cold weather.

Indoor saunas offer a more private and intimate experience, and you can enjoy your sauna time without worrying about weather conditions or nosy neighbors.
