In short, an infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light which our bodies then experience as radiant heat, which is absorbed by the surface of our skin.
Many of the traditional saunas heat the body both by conduction and convection from a combination of heated air and radiation of the heated surfaces in the sauna room, and can’t prove to be as or more effective than the infrared sort.
We decided to create a visual that outlines exactly why infrared saunas are so health beneficial, those who benefit from sauna therapy most and some interesting health statistics that simply put the UK to shame.
