What is an infrared sauna?
An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light waves that penetrate the skin and heat the body directly, rather than heating the air around you like a traditional steam sauna. The infrared heaters in the sauna emit infrared radiation, which is a type of electromagnetic radiation that lies between visible light and radio waves on the electromagnetic spectrum.
The heat produced by infrared radiation causes the body to sweat and helps to increase circulation and relax muscles, providing a number of potential health benefits. Infrared saunas are typically smaller than traditional steam saunas and use less energy, making them more accessible for home use. They are also considered a more comfortable and less intense alternative to traditional saunas, as they produce a milder heat that is more tolerable for some people.
Thus, an Infrared sauna is the best type of sauna for people with heart issues, you can book your session and get the treatment with FitHeartWellness.
“These saunas use infrared panels instead of conventional heat to penetrate human tissue easily, heating up your body before heating up the air,” explains physical therapist, Vivian Eisenstadt, MAPT, CPT, MASP.
