Traditional Sauna Meets Infrared Technology
Since infrared wavelengths don’t heat the surrounding air temperature, the salt sauna is heated with a traditional dry sauna heater to 120 degrees and the walls surrounding the cedar benches are covered in infrared panels. While infrared heat doesn’t raise room temperature much on its own, infrared heat is absorbed by your body when you sit in front of the infrared heaters- just like when you go outside on a nice sunny day. After 10-15 minutes, you’ll feel an increase in body temperature, effectively making the salt sauna feel 10-15 degrees hotter than it is. While it may feel like 135-140 degrees, the air is much easier to breathe at the lower air temperature.
Sweat. Detox. Relax. Infrared is widely known for the health benefits of aiding in the body’s own healthy inflammation response and gently easing discomfort, aches, and pains.
