      What is an infrared sauna?

      An infrared sauna is a sauna that uses infrared radiation instead of steam to heat the body. The air around you remains unchanged. The goal is to heat the body – it receives 80% of the total heat, while the remaining 20% heats the air inside the room. In an infrared sauna, IR heaters create dry heat, not a humid environment.

      The body temperature rises without the need to sit in a very hot room. The temperature in an IR sauna ranges from 110°F to 130°F (50°C to 60°C), making it more comfortable, relaxing, and effective than a traditional sauna.

      IR waves penetrate deep into the skin and muscles (up to 1.6 inches) on the cellular level. This promotes faster recovery for the body.

      What are the results after the procedure?

      • Pores open up, toxins are released through sweat, and metabolism is activated.
      • Blood circulation and lymphatic flow improve.
      • Muscle pain, fatigue, and stress levels decrease.
      • Sleep and overall well-being are normalized.
      • Immunity and cell renewal increase.
      • Skin gains a healthy glow, fat deposits decrease, and collagen production improves.
      • The mind calms down, and the nervous system relaxes.
      • The cardiovascular system becomes balanced.

      How does a visit to an infrared sauna take place?

      1. Preparation. Before visiting the infrared cabin, it is recommended to take a shower to cleanse the skin of impurities and cosmetic products. You can wear light and loose clothing (such as a swimsuit) or wrap yourself in a towel. Due to profuse sweating during the session, it is advised to drink water or green tea beforehand to avoid dehydration. Eating heavy food or consuming alcohol before the session is not recommended.
      2. Staying in the sauna. The session time should not exceed 30 minutes. You can choose a suitable operating mode (set the desired temperature and radiation intensity). The infrared heat can be experienced sitting or lying down. It is not recommended to sleep during the procedure. Combining the session with a massage and drinking plenty of water or tea enhances the positive effects on the body.
      3. After the session. There is no need to get up abruptly; slowly and carefully rise and head towards the exit. It is essential to rest for a while before going outside, allowing your body to return to its normal temperature. It is also recommended to drink water and take a warm shower.

      Mild dizziness and weakness during the session are normal. However, if you experience significant dizziness or nausea, there is no need to endure and suffer. It is better to leave the sauna.

      Why does one feel dizzy in an infrared sauna?

      • The increased temperature expands blood vessels and lowers blood pressure (especially in hypotensive individuals).
      • The body loses a lot of water due to intense sweating.
      • Overheating of the body or sensitivity to temperature changes can provoke dizziness.

      To avoid unpleasant sensations, do not exceed the permissible temperature and duration in the infrared cabin, and drink an adequate amount of water.

      What are the benefits of an infrared sauna?

      Infrared sauna is an effective and economical way to achieve strong health, beauty, and longevity!

      Lower temperatures

      Traditional saunas have temperatures ranging from 150°F to 180°F, which can make the air and steam very hot and stuffy. Infrared saunas have lower temperatures, usually between 120°F and 140°F, making them more comfortable to use.

      Higher effectiveness

      Infrared rays penetrate deeper into the skin and muscles than the heat waves produced in traditional saunas. This allows infrared saunas to achieve better results in treating many conditions and diseases.

      No respiratory discomfort

      Traditional saunas can cause discomfort to the respiratory system due to high temperatures and dry air. Infrared saunas do not have this effect.

      Easier on the cardiovascular system

      Infrared saunas have a gentler effect on the cardiovascular system compared to traditional saunas. This makes them suitable for people with heart conditions.

      Cleanliness and safety

      Infrared saunas do not produce smoke or steam. Regular cleaning of the facility after procedures is performed using high-quality, non-toxic materials, making them cleaner and safer than traditional saunas.

      Improved skin appearance

      Infrared rays can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve facial skin color and texture, and eliminate pigmentation and acne.

      Pain and stress reduction

      Infrared saunas can help reduce stress and anxiety levels and decrease pain sensations in muscles and joints.

      Enhanced immunity

      Infrared saunas can strengthen the immune system by stimulating the production of white blood cells, which fight infections and diseases.
