Far Infrared Sauna - John Barlow - Minneapolis

Infrared saunas use infrared heaters and emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat.  This radiant heat is absorbed by the surface of the skin. Common Traditional saunas heat the body primary by conduction/convection from the heated air, and by radiation of the heated surfaces.

There are many health benefits to an infrared saunas:

Sweating is good for you. It is one of the body’s safest, as well as most natural, ways to heal and maintain good health. Saunas have been recommended for people who are told they have high levels of “toxicity” in their body. Saunas may be useful to those who cannot sweat from exercise due to their health problems, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

A study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis showed a reduction in pain, stiffness and fatigue during infrared sauna therapy.

-Heat tolerance
If a sauna uses far-infrared technology, the sauna might be more tolerated by patients who do not tolerate the high temperatures of standard humid hot air saunas. This is because far-infrared rays do not heat the air inside the sauna, but they still heat the body.
