Infrared saunas are the best saunas out in the market so far, not just because of the latest technology but because of the major health benefits that come with the soothing heat they provide. These saunas give you a deeper level of detoxification & healing. With very little preheat waiting times the heat these saunas produce is nothing like you ever seen in a traditional sauna, because the infrared heat actually penetrates several inches deep below the skin surface drawing toxins from deep within, soothing aching muscles and joints. The simulated fever fights bacteria and viruses, warding off simple ailments & infections. Infrared rays heat the body of the person, but not the air of the sauna. This is very beneficial for those who may not be able to handle the heated moist air inside a traditional sauna.

Saunas might be very important to patients who, because of their health problems, they cannot sweat from practicing any sports, like patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Far-infrared saunas might be a much better choice for patients who don’t tolerate the high temperatures of the standard humid hot air saunas. This is because far-infrared rays do not heat the air inside the sauna, but they still heat the body.
The Journal of the American Medical Association states: “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal, which is equivalent to running 2–3 miles. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600–800 kcal with no adverse effects. While the weight of the water loss can be regained by drinking water, the calories consumed will not be."
