What is the difference between infrared sauna and steam/traditional sauna?
Traditional saunas that use steam or hot rocks heat the air within the sauna cabin to warm up the body. On the other hand, Far Infrared (FIR) saunas utilize the warming properties of the sun's far infrared spectrum to heat the body, instead of warming up the air inside the cabin. This process is known as conversion. Unlike traditional saunas, FIR saunas heat only the object and do not increase the temperature of the surrounding air. To better comprehend how infrared heat functions, envision yourself outdoors on a sunny day with the sun shining down on you. You feel warm from the sun, and your body gets hot. Suddenly, a cloud blocks the sun, and even though the temperature outside remains the same, you feel cooler in the shade. This is because your body was being heated by the sun's far infrared rays. Similarly, infrared heaters warm up the body in the same way as natural sunlight.

How To Find Your Baseline Sauna Temperature
To obtain a starting baseline, you must consider the following points. A baseline sauna will differ from person to person depending on multiple factors like fitness levels, vitality, and overall health. As a guide you should be able to sit in the sauna for approximately 30 mins without feeling like it’s to taxing. You should be able to get a good sweat on, feel pretty good and not be staring at the clock waiting for it to be over. Typically, this would include a temperature range of between 45 – 55 degrees. Our sauna heats up to a maximum of 70 degrees Celsius.
