Sauna Comparison HEADING_TITLE

Beauty, wellbeing, vitality
You can have all the benefits to your beauty and sense of well-being of a full-sized sauna in a portable, affordable unit that uses the same FIR (Far Infrared Radiation) technology as larger and heavier saunas, yet stores away neatly.

Far Infrared Saunas & Conventional Saunas
A conventional sauna must rely on indirect means to convey the heat to the body (convection - air currents - and conduction). That is, our skin has direct contact with hot air. But Infrared rays undergo "conversion". They convert to heat on contact with the body. Only 20 percent of the rays from an Infrared heater heat the air, leaving over 80 percent of the energy to heat you. Thus, an Infrared-heated sauna can warm you to a greater depth and more efficiently than a conventional sauna, while letting you breathe easily. We have both portable Infrared saunas and wood Infrared saunas (see comparison table link, below).

Wooden Saunas & Portable Saunas
A portable Infrared Sauna incorporates the same elements as a (furniture-sized) wooden Infrared Sauna, and gives the same revitalizing results to the body inside it. The same FIR technology heats the body in an enclosed space. The portable sauna is significantly more affordable, but without a loss in effectiveness.

The Age-old Sauna
The sauna has existed in a variety forms for thousands of years, most notably in the ancient country of Finland, which gave us the word “sauna“. Well-known too are the sweat-lodges of Native North Americans. Other cultures have known the benefits of exposing the body to periods of elevated heat, as in steam-baths or hotsprings. The sauna's purpose, as a cleansing and relaxing enclosure, has not changed much over time, but advances in technologies can give convenient new ways to enjoy the warmth of the sauna.

What is Far Infrared?
The sun is our principal source of infrared heat. As the sun's rays hit the surface of the earth, what we perceive as heat is in fact Far Infrared waves. Infrared heat is essential for all life. When you lie on the beach you are soaking up infrared heat. Unfortunately you are also receiving direct damaging ultra-violet rays. FIR heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.
The invisible and very safe Far Infrared heat produced by an Infrared sauna is able to penetrate well below the skin, which enables the body to sweat at air temperatures of 110 - 140 ° F (much lower than conventional saunas). Far Infrared heat is effective in dilating blood vessels and may increase the rate of detoxification via bodily fluids.
