The heat from an infrared sauna is soaked up by the skin, which raises body temperature deep inside the core and promotes a deeper level of detox than ordinary saunas can provide. This deeper level of detoxification helps rid the body of excess toxins ranging from heavy metals, chemicals, and radioactive particles.
How does an infrared sauna work?
Instead of heating the air around you, an infrared sauna heats your body directly by using infrared heaters and light. This means infrared saunas can heat the body more efficiently than traditional saunas, which rely on heating the air. The heat from an infrared sauna is soaked up by the skin, which raises body temperature deep inside the core and promotes a deeper level of detox than ordinary saunas can provide.
