What is an infrared sauna?
Infrared saunas use far infrared lighting to penetrate deep within the tissue, muscle and bones.
Unlike a traditional sauna where rocks are heated and the temperature is much higher making it difficult to breath - infrared sauna is a much more pleasurable experience. By penetrating deep into our bodies it allows our core temperature to rise allowing our body to gently detoxify and remove the build up of unwanted toxins in the body.
