Infrared Sauna Therapy Annapolis, MD What is an infrared sauna? An infrared sauna is a sauna that uses infrared light to create heat which heats the body directly its core rather than warming the air around you and only heating up skin at the surface. Saunas in general mimic the effects of moderate exercise, an infrared sauna is able to replicate these results at a lower temperature (around 135-140 degrees Fahrenheit) which makes it accessible to people who can’t tolerate the heat of a regular sauna (temperatures are around 200-230 degrees Fahrenheit). What is the difference between an infrared sauna compared to traditional saunas? Traditional saunas raise the temperature of the air within the chamber to a very high level to warm the body and the skin’s surface. This can make it very difficult for some to breathe and makes it very uncomfortable for people to stay inside a traditional sauna for longer periods of time. The infrared heaters warm the body in the same sense as natural sunlight (without the harmful UV rays), which heats the body naturally through visible and non-visible wavelengths. Infrared sauna sessions are typically 25-30 minutes where they heat up the body directly which allows for deeper tissue penetration and detoxification without breathing in the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional sauna.
