The Big Difference

The traditional Finnish sauna system that we all know has its merits but today we can do things in a more gentle way. In a traditional sauna, the air temperature gets raised to somewhere between 80 and 100 degrees Celsius. In this heat, water is evaporated to make the air moist, your body will heat up and you start to sweat to reduce the heat. Together with the sweat, toxins get removed from your body. This is the purpose of a traditional sauna.

The big difference with a far infrared sauna is the fact that in these saunas, it is not the surrounding air that heats up but the infrared radiation heats up your body directly without having to heat up the air around you. This will cause your body to sweat even more at temperatures as low as 50 degrees Celsius.

For people who do not like extremely high temperatures or those who do not like to be locked into a small cabin, a far infrared sauna is the solution. A typical session will be experienced at temperatures between 45°C and 65°C. But even when you decide to open the door to let some fresh air in, the far infrared will keep on having its beneficial effects on your body. In addition, the running cost of these saunas is many times lower than that of a traditional sauna. An average infrared sauna uses only about as much electricity as a hair dryer.

After a session in a Health Mate infrared sauna your body will have rid itself from toxins and your immune system will have received a boost. That is the reason why you feel so good after a 30 minute infrared session.
