The best thing about infrared saunas in my mind is that I can stay I there for at least half an hour and still be able to breathe. I am slightly claustrophobic, so if I have trouble breathing, I’m going to be out of there in a hurry. Because of this, I have a hard time with traditional saunas.
There is no question that both saunas have their advantages and it is also a fact that some people like the extreme heat, in many sweating lodges for example when confronted with this heat it can have some meditational qualities, however for me it just becomes unbearable.
The benefit of each sauna is in the fact that they make you sweat, and this way you begin to cleanse your body form the inside out. Your skin is the largest organ, and sweating helps to keep your skin clean and subtle.
At the same time, you’ll be sweating out all of the toxins, taking care of the inside and outside of your body at the same time.
While you sweat out all of the poisons, you’ll be cleansing yourself from the inside out. An infrared sauna works in a different way than does a traditional sauna. Instead of steam, they use infrared rays which can penetrate into your body, which produces more sweating and a more efficient cleansing process.
The first time I tried an infrared sauna, I didn’t think anything was happening – until fifteen minutes into it when I was suddenly drenched in sweat; it was nothing less than amazing!
I felt great after I got out of the sauna and took a quick shower. Saunas are great for your health and which type you choose really depends on your personal preferences. Whatever style you are the most comfortable with is the one you will use the most, so you’ll get better results from it.
That is exactly what you want to achieve when using your sauna, that is after all its purpose, which is to provide you with the maximum health benefits that you can get when using it.
