9 Reasons to Love Infrared Saunas

The warm infrared light you get from the sun and our saunas does more than meets the eye. Discover the full-body benefits of making a full-spectrum infrared sauna part of your wellness routine.


When your sauna raises your core body temperature, your body’s natural reaction is to sweat. When you sweat in a relaxed state, it promotes blood flow to your organs, creating a detox that starts at the cellular level and reaches the whole body. In just one 20-minute session, you could release up to a pint of sweat—and with it, harmful substances that have built up over time.

Physical Performance

An athletic lifestyle can be stressful on the body. Infrared light and heat therapy increases circulation to muscles, which has been proven to help in the post-workout recovery process. Saunas even trigger your body to release natural growth hormones that can help you come back even stronger.

Immunity Boosting

Regular sauna sessions can help you strengthen your defenses against illness. The heat of the sauna raises your body temperature, which triggers your cells’ natural immune response. Give yourself extra protection during cold season and beyond.

Weight Loss

Even while you relax during your session, your sauna gets your heart pumping, your blood moving, and your body sweating. Infrared sauna alone won’t replace exercise, but studies show that just sitting in the sauna has been shown to help obese people lose body weight and mass.

Stress Reduction

Relaxation is key in finding balance mentally, emotionally, and physically. Infrared light helps boost natural feel-good neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine so you can have more happy days. Creating a meditative ritual around your sauna time is a great way to achieve a deeper sense of calm.

Mental Performance

Studies show that near infrared light has a special effect on the mind. It improves the connectivity of networks in your brain and enhances your ability to process information, empowering you to tackle tasks with a renewed sense of clarity.

Skin Rejuvenation

From cellulite to wound healing, near infrared sauna therapy can help restore a healthful glow. Regular near infrared light exposure has been shown to boost collagen and elastin, which make skin look firmer, feel plumper, and heal better.

Pain Relief

Near infrared light is popping up in physical therapy and pain management offices across the world. By stimulating mitochondria at a cellular level, it can improve circulation, oxygenation, and healing responses to help joint and muscle pain sufferers find natural relief.


Your sauna is a heavy-hitting multitasker designed to help you live your best life. It, along with all the healthy choices you make along the way, can help add years to your life. A recent landmark study shows that people who used a sauna were at a reduced risk of fatal heart attacks and other serious cardiovascular diseases.
