You’ve heard about Traditional hot Saunas and the buzz as of late seems to be all about Infrared Saunas. So what IS the difference? And what type is the best choice for you?
Traditional saunas are a high heat, low humidity environment. Temperatures range between 185-195°F and water is splashed over the heater rocks to create a blast of steam and intensify the feeling of heat. For those who enjoy this experience, there is nothing in the world quite like it.
Infrared saunas provide a more mild environment. Infrared rays heat the body directly and the air secondarily. For those who enjoy the “heat bath” experience, but cannot take the heat or do not enjoy traditional saunas, infrared is an excellent alternative.
Many people who have experienced and enjoyed traditional saunas inquire about infrared saunas thinking it will be the same. It is important to keep in mind that the experience of a traditional sauna vs. an infrared sauna is not the same. Infrared saunas provide a very enjoyable experience, but are different from a traditional sauna. If you know and love traditional saunas, you should stay traditional.
