What are the differences between traditional sauna and infrared?
Traditional Sauna are a high heat, low humidity environment. Temperatures range between 80-90°C (185-195°F) and water is splashed over the heater rocks to create a blast of hypersteam and intensify the feeling of heat. For those who enjoy this experience, there is nothing in the world quite like it but Infrared Sauna tips provide a much more mild environment. Infrared rays heat the body directly and the air secondarily.

In a traditional sauna the air in the cabin is heated to more than 70oC or even 80oC. Upon entering the cabin the body temperature rises due to contact with the very hot air and begins to perspire. In order to moderate the humidity levels, water is sprinkled over the heat source to vaporise as steam. Duration of exposure is typically limited to 5~10 minutes to prevent the core body temperature reaching dangerous levels. Having left the cabin and cooled to normal levels again the experience can be repeated, typically two or three times taking up to two hours. With an infrared sauna the body is heated directly rather than via the air. This encourages the body to perspire profusely but at much lower ambient temperatures usually around 40oC~45oC. The heating effect is due to the Infrared waves being absorbed by the body producing a deeper heat sensation. As the process is more comfortable for the user the duration of a session may last from 30 minutes to an hour for seasoned users. The amo
