Saunas have been providing a great way to lessen aches and stress in the body and allows the human skin to breathe freely through sweating.  Like all technologies, the technology that is used in saunas has also undergone a massive change over time. From the steam-based saunas that were popularly used in the past, saunas at present use infrared technology to produce the heating effect. Using infrared lamps generates controllable heat evenly and expedites the detoxification process. Amongst the two types – near infrared and far infrared, it is far infrared that wins hands down as the most popular form of soaking in the benefits of saunas.


Using the far end of the infrared emission spectrum, this type of sauna provides controlled heating through the use of far infrared lamps. These are easy to control and the heat can also be targeted towards specific areas of the body. One aspect in which far infrared saunas are a great improvement over traditional saunas is that it requires far less heat to achieve desired healing, and there is no scope of dehumidification of mucous membranes, and consequently, no need to use water or steam. This makes the use of far infrared saunas a far more comfortable experience, and sweating can be achieved without any discomfort.


Another important characteristic of far infrared saunas is that the far infrared rays emitted are readily absorbed by the human body. Far infrared can be easily absorbed through human skin and has been known to activate and stimulate bodily functions and processes. As a result, the body becomes more active in the release of toxins into the sweat, giving users a more thorough, comprehensive detoxification. Exposure to far infrared rays also has a host of other health benefits, and its application has been found to have a curative influence on a number of conditions and diseases. Overall, far infrared saunas are a great way to use modern technology to stay healthy and fit.
