The indoor infrared sauna kit is perfect for your home. Whether added to your bedroom, basement, or home gym, it will not create the level of humidity and moisture you will have with a traditional sauna.
The infrared waves will penetrate your body and heat from the inside rather than increase the temperature of the air to such a degree that your own temperature rises, creating the sweat and detox you're looking for.
The indoor sauna kits are pre-made and styled to give you many different looks and design options. From 1- 2 person indoor saunas, 3-4 person saunas and even 6-8 person saunas, you will be able to find one that will work for your space. The larger units can even be made to use for hot yoga or wheelchair accessibility in some cases.
An indoor infrared sauna could be made of cedar, or eucalyptus or some other good wood type for saunas that is antimicrobial and antibacterial. The wood type is slightly less a concern for the infrared sauna because it does not contend with as much moisture as the steam sauna.
Choose an indoor infrared sauna with more glass if you want more viewing area (think kids, TV, etc) or if you want to avoid a closed in feeling. The ones with less glass offer more privacy.
Indoor infrared sauna kits can usually be assembled in just a few hours if your location and electrical are prepared before-hand. Check with us if you have any questions about the indoor infrared sauna you are most interested in, but they come with all you need. They are practically 'plug 'n play' saunas.
An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit radiant heat that is directly absorbed by the body, rather than heating the air around you like traditional saunas. The air in the sauna doesn't get as hot as in a traditional sauna and it doesn't have to to promote relaxation, improve circulation, and induce a good sweat for detoxification.
The infrared waves emitted by infrared sauna heaters are a form of electromagnetic energy and unlike traditional saunas, which heat the air to warm the body, infrared saunas directly heat the body's tissues and skin, creating heat. This radiant heat penetrates the body, promoting sweating and providing various other health benefits, such as relaxation, improved circulation, and detoxification.
Using an infrared sauna may offer several potential health benefits. These include relaxation and stress reduction, improved circulation, pain relief from conditions like arthritis and muscle soreness, enhanced detoxification through increased sweating, potential weight loss through calorie burning, and skin benefits like improved complexion and reduced acne.
While infrared saunas are generally considered safe for most people, there are potential risks and side effects to be aware of. These can include dehydration, overheating, and the risk of burns or skin irritation if the sauna is used improperly or for too long. People with certain medical conditions, such as cardiovascular issues, low blood pressure, or skin conditions, should consult a healthcare provider before using an infrared sauna to ensure it's safe for them. It's crucial to stay hydrated, limit session durations, and follow manufacturer guidelines to minimize any potential risks.
Infrared saunas typically operate at lower temperatures compared to traditional saunas. Traditional saunas often reach temperatures of 160°F to 200°F (71°C to 93°C) or even higher. In contrast, infrared saunas typically have a temperature range of 120°F to 150°F (49°C to 66°C). Despite the lower air temperature, infrared saunas can still produce a sensation of warmth and heat the body effectively through the absorption of infrared rays, making them more tolerable for some individuals who find traditional saunas uncomfortably hot.
The main difference between near-infrared and far-infrared saunas lies in the wavelength of the infrared radiation they use:
Near-Infrared Saunas: Near-infrared saunas primarily use near-infrared light, which has shorter wavelengths and is closer to visible light on the electromagnetic spectrum. These saunas often feature incandescent or LED bulbs that emit near-infrared light. Near-infrared is thought to penetrate the skin more superficially, promoting skin health, collagen production, and potentially providing localized benefits.
Far-Infrared Saunas: Far-infrared saunas use far-infrared radiation, which has longer wavelengths and is closer to microwave radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum. They typically have heating elements that emit far-infrared heat, which penetrates the body more deeply and is believed to generate internal heating and promote more significant health benefits, such as improved circulation, pain relief, and detoxification.
Both types of saunas are designed to provide therapeutic effects, but they may have different applications and potential benefits based on the wavelength of infrared radiation they primarily emit. Some saunas combine both near and far-infrared elements to offer a broader range of benefits. Individual preferences and health goals can influence the choice between near-infrared, far-infrared, or a combination of both.
Infrared saunas may help with weight management indirectly by increasing calorie expenditure through mild exercise-like effects, promoting relaxation and stress reduction, and aiding in the elimination of some toxins through sweat. However, any initial weight loss observed is primarily due to water loss and is quickly regained upon rehydration. Infrared saunas should not be considered a primary or substantial method for weight loss, as a balanced diet and regular exercise remain essential components of a healthy weight management plan.
