FULL spectrum sauna


A full-spectrum infrared sauna, as its name suggests, offers treatments at various levels, known as near, middle, and far. All waves are absorbed into the body like sunlight, whether the light is seen with the naked eye or not.

They also heat things up in a completely different way than old-school saunas, which is really what sets this method apart.  The lamps in infrared saunas focus a penetrating warmth directly on your skin to bring heat-therapy benefits. Traditional methods crank up the air temperature within an entire sauna.  Those two approaches bring up vastly different readings on thermometers. Temperatures in infrared saunas typically land between 110 degrees Fahrenheit and 135 F (43.33 degrees Celsius and 57.22 C).
