Infrared saunas are increasingly popular in the wellness community for a number of reasons including the numerous health benefits and they just make you feel good!  What exactly is an infrared sauna?  Before we dive into what infrared saunas are, we should first understand infrared wavelengths.

Infrared Wavelengths

The sun produces a combination of visible and invisible light, and one of those invisible spectrums is infrared rays. Invisible infrared wavelengths are what makes the sun feel warm (and ultraviolet wavelengths are what makes it bright). Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body as they increase the thermal energy in the body.  Infrared does this without any of the harmful rays of sunlight. 

There are three main categories of the infrared spectrum: near infrared, mid infrared, and far infrared.

  • Near Infrared is the shortest wavelength but penetrates the deepest. It has the distinct property that it is not captured by the water of the body allowing it to penetrate the deepest to increa
