In addition to the Finnish sauna (named after the country of origin), where the body is heated by warm air and steam, there is also the infrared sauna. An infrared sauna provides relaxation in a completely different way than a traditional sauna. In an infrared sauna, the heat is directly absorbed by the body through infrared heating . This is done using infrared radiation, without the need for warm air. The warm air in the cabin ensures the transfer of heat through conduction.
In addition to the standard saunas, it is of course also possible to purchase a custom sauna for both indoors and outdoors. This may involve Infrared, Finnish or a combination. Read more about customization here .

What kind of radiation does the infrared sauna use
Infrared is a form of electromagnetic radiation. Infrared radiation is absolutely safe. The body itself also emits infrared radiation and the heat one feels while tanning in the sun or the heat one feels from a heater is also all infrared radiation. Infrared is a wavelength imperceptible to humans. It is a light color with a slightly lower frequency than normally perceptible red light. The nice thing about infrared is that when the radiation reaches the body, the energy of the light is converted into heat. This is exactly the principle on which the Infrared cabin is based.
The effect of infrared radiation
Infrared light penetrates deep into the skin, warming up the body. The heat raises body temperature, as well as heart rate and circulation. This stimulates the metabolism and ensures that waste products are removed faster. This is the basis of the operation of infrared light in the infrared cabin. Various physical complaints can be alleviated or even remedied with this. Due to the accelerated removal of waste, accumulated acids disappear quickly and muscle pain is greatly reduced. Not only are waste materials removed more quickly, nutrients and building materials are also supplied more quickly. This also allows the body to recover more quickly from a great effort or an ailment. These are the advantages of an infrared cabin. The accelerated metabolism also ensures that muscles have better blood flow and this makes them longer and more flexible. The heat in the body not only has a good effect on the muscles. Toxic substances from the environment are more quickly worked out of the body. This thorough cleaning has a positive effect on muscles and joints, but also on the skin. The purifying effect of the infrared cabin reduces skin conditions such as acne and eczema. Because a lot of heat is generated in the body, a kind of fever reaction occurs. The waste products and germs are eliminated from the body as quickly as possible. This strengthens the entire resistance, the defense against viruses and bacteria.
