Everything You Need To Know About Infrared Saunas

How to choose the best e-bikes

Infrared saunas are a type of sauna that use infrared Light heaters to emit infrared light. Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air around you, infrared saunas directly heat your body. Evolving over time, these saunas blend modern efficiency with a therapeutic touch, providing not just warmth but a rejuvenating and cost-effective home wellness solution.

Why Infrared Technology?

Tests have shown that the energy output of Dynamic Avila Elite far infrared heaters is tuned so closely to the body’s own radiant energy that our bodies absorb as much as 93% of the far infrared waves that reach our skin.

By comparison, conventional saunas must rely only on indirect means of heat: first, on convection (air currents) and then, conduction (direct contact of hot air with the skin) to produce its heating effect. Your Infrared Sauna is best used at temperatures between 100° to 125°F versus 180° to 220°F for traditional hot-air saunas. Since conventional saunas require 30 to 90 minutes of warm-up before use, electricity costs are reported to be a lot higher than those of Clearlight Infrared Saunas which are ready to use in 10-15 minutes.

How do you use an infrared sauna?

While there are guidelines, your experience with an infrared sauna is entirely personal. Here are starting tips:

  • Stay Hydrated: Drink water before and during your session, especially if you're sensitive to higher temperatures.
  • Temperature Selection: Begin at 100˚F, gradually increasing. Novices start at the lower end, progressing to 150˚F.
  • Duration: Start with 10-15 minutes and increase gradually to the recommended 20-30 minutes. Use the sauna timer to avoid dehydration.
  • Attire Choice: Dress as you're comfortable—whether in a bathing suit or going au naturel.
  • Sauna Activities: Relax, read, meditate, listen to music, or socialize—just avoid falling asleep.
  • Post-Session Cool Down: After your session, cool down gradually. Take your time, then shower or bathe, ensuring continuous hydration.
  • Frequency: Most facilities recommend 3-4 sessions per week. Healthy individuals may use the sauna daily if well-tolerated.

Key Considerations Before Trying an Infrared Sauna

There are a few things you should know before indulging in your first session.

  • Avoid using an infrared sauna if you’ve been drinking alcohol.
  • If you feel ill or have a fever, it’s best to wait to use the sauna until you’re feeling better.
  • Using an infrared sauna will cause you to sweat a lot, so you may feel lightheaded when you stand up. If this happens, make sure you get up slowly and sit down once you leave the sauna. Drink water immediately after finishing your session and wait for your body to cool down before doing anything else.
  • In extreme cases, some people may experience overheating (heat stroke and heat exhaustion) or dehydration.
