F.A.Q.

  • Is an Infrared Better than a Traditional One?

    According to the specialists, an infrared one offers much more benefits in comparison to a traditional one. Since it uses infrared heat, the temperatures inside this type of sauna are lower, so the heat is capable of penetrating deeply into the body. And so the effects. Also, the low temperatures make you sweat more which helps detoxify your body and burn calories much faster. Additionally, since the temperatures in an infrared sauna are lower, your heart can tolerate better the heat. Not to mention the fact that you will feel much more comfortable.

  • How Long Should I Stay in the Sauna?

    In general, it is recommended to stay in sauna for approximately 10 or 15 minutes. This is the minimum of time for maximum health benefits. But, considering the fact that an infrared sauna reaches temperatures of up to 110º F (instead of 150 or 160º in traditional saunas) your body can resist for a longer period of time. And there is nothing wrong with spending more time in the sauna, you just have to try not to exceed 30 minutes.

  • Are There Any Dangers of Using Sauna?

    According to the Center for Disease Control, there is no real evidence that exposing to EMF can increase the chances of developing certain diseases. However, it is always good to take preventive measures, so it’s best to look for those saunas that emit zero or low EMFs. The Environmental Protection Agency considers that an EMF level below 3 mG is safe for all people who use infrared saunas.

  • When Isn't Recommended to Use the Sauna?

    Although an infrared model offers many health benefits it is not always recommended because it can do more harm than good. Usually, people who suffer from medical conditions like multiple sclerosis or unstable angina pectoris should never use it. At the same time, if you are under medication you should ask the advice of the doctor to make sure it’s safe to use the sauna because some drugs are not recommended in combination with increased blood circulation. Also, pregnant women should avoid using it as babies-to-be can't tolerate the extreme temperatures.
