Are Infrared Saunas Better Than Regular Saunas?

Is an infrared sauna better than a regular sauna?

Twenty minutes in any type of sauna can help you relax and relieve sore muscles. The manufacturer claims that 80% of the heat produced by an infrared sauna directly heats your body. This means the heat penetrates deeper into your skin, and you may be able to tolerate a longer infrared sauna session.

Several studies have examined the effects of regular infrared sauna baths and found that deep penetration of infrared heat accelerates muscle recovery, with significant benefits for athletes or those who are physically active. Other studies in Japan and South Korea have reported that infrared sauna therapy can improve chronic health conditions.

The far-infrared emission rate reaches 92% and is filled with unique invention patented technology. Far-infrared biological waves and negative ions act on the human body, effectively penetrate the deep layers of the skin through strong penetration, activation, and metabolism, activate deep cells, and speed up blood circulation throughout the body. Fatigue and aging substances, such as lactic acid, fatty acid lipids, cholesterol, excess subcutaneous fat, etc., are directly excreted from the skin without the kidneys through the activation of the hair follicles and sebaceous glands, thereby achieving the unique effect of deep detoxification.

The sweat after an ordinary sauna is the same as the sweat we usually excrete, which is sticky and smelly. This is because the sauna is in a closed high temperature and high humidity environment. In this environment, a large number of bacteria and parasites exist on the skin surface. Insects, etc., will decompose the organic components in sweat, produce various toxic substances, release odorous gases, cause serious sweat odor, and even cause skin diseases, which are commonly referred to as sweat rash, folliculitis, eczema, prickly heat, etc.
