An Infrared Sauna is a type of sauna that uses infrared light or more specifically far infrared light (FIR) to create heat. FIR is the only light that is capable of raising your core temperature. Infrared Saunas promote better sleep, detoxify the body through sweat, promote weight loss, relieve sore muscles and joint pain, increase circulation throughout the body, tightens skin and stimulates collagen production, and relaxes the body overall.
It is important to drink plenty of water before an Infrared Sauna session so that you do not dehydrate. A great tip would be to bring your own bottled water to drink after you are complete with your session. Infrared saunas typically range from 100 degrees to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. For first timers it is important to start at lower temperatures and then gradually increase the temperature as you start to have more infrared sauna sessions.

Arteries dilate, improving blood flow throughout the body and relaxing tight or overworked muscles. The production of white blood cells is stimulated, strengthening the immune system. Toxins are flushed out through the skin’s pores. In a Pure Infra sauna, the ambient air temperature settles at your preset comfort level — while the safest infrared waves possible penetrate deep into your body, warming you inside and out at the same time. This means you can detoxify comfortably and safely for longer periods. And come out feeling stronger, healthier and in better balance.
