What is an infrared sauna? How is it different from a traditional sauna or steam room and what do people need to know about them in order to make infrared saunas UK as popular as elsewhere.
An infrared sauna is a sauna that uses infrared light as a heat source as opposed to steam or hot air as is the case with traditional saunas. Infrared light is a very safe and efficient source of heat as it warms up objects directly without having to warm up the air inside the sauna. This means that the sauna is more economical to run. More importantly, it also means that a sauna session can be enjoyed at a lot more comfortable temperatures. 45-65 degrees as opposed to 80-100 in a traditional sauna. This makes the entire experience much more pleasant and relaxing.
Not only is a sauna powered by infrared technology more cost effective and pleasant to use, it also offers multiple health benefits.
