Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared lamps (that use electromagnetic radiation) to warm your body directly.
“These saunas use infrared panels instead of conventional heat to easily penetrate human tissue, heating up your body before heating up the air,” explains physical therapist, Vivian Eisenstadt, MAPT, CPT, MASP.
An infrared sauna can operate at a lower temperature (usually between 45˚C and 55˚C) than a traditional sauna, which is typically between 70˚C and 100˚C.
In an infrared sauna, only about 20 percent of the heat goes to heat the air and the other 80 percent directly heats your body.
Supporters of infrared saunas say the heat penetrates more deeply than warmed air. This allows you to experience a more intense sweat at a lower temperature.
This environment is more tolerable, which allows you to stay in the sauna longer while increasing your core body temperature by two to three degrees.
