Infrared Sauna Q & A

What is an infrared sauna?

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat and detoxify the body to rejuvenate your cells.

An infrared sauna differs from traditional saunas in one big, key way. Traditional saunas heat the area around you, creating a humid environment you may find uncomfortable to be in for long periods of time.

Infrared saunas heat your body using light instead of steam, leaving the area around you more comfortable and allowing you to relax completely. This makes infrared saunas an option for people who struggle with the heat and humidity that traditional saunas require.

How does an infrared sauna work?

Infrared saunas use three types of wavelengths to create heat: short, medium, and far. The far wavelength produces the most intense heat. Each wavelength works a little differently to help detoxify your body and promote wellness.

Short infrared wavelengths work to promote healing and revitalization as the waves are absorbed just beneath the skin’s surface.

Mid-infrared sauna treatment penetrates the body’s soft tissue and works to revitalize the tissue in patients.

Far-infrared wavelengths penetrate deep into your cells and allow for the most significant levels of detoxification in your body.

What are the benefits of using an infrared sauna?

There are many benefits to using an infrared sauna, including:

  • Detoxification of the body
  • Pain relief
  • Relaxation and stress relief
  • Improved circulation and blood pressure
  • Anti-aging benefits

Infrared saunas are also used to treat injuries to your muscles. Infrared sauna treatments promote cell regeneration which helps speed up healing in your injured muscles.

How should I prepare for my visit to an infrared sauna?

Be sure to drink plenty of water to hydrate before your appointment as your body will be excreting much of its fluids while you’re in the sauna. You should also avoid eating right before your appointment and skip putting on any lotions or oils that coat the skin.

Infrared saunas help promote the detoxification and revitalization of your cells and offer many benefits. Don’t wait to schedule your appointment with Dr. Joy White at Diamond Medical Clinic and Spa.
