Far Infrared Saunas - Relax And Care For Your Health

Aug 26, 2008
The far infrared portable sauna is sometimes called "sauna on the go". This is in reference to is ease of use; but it is true that they are relatively portable. These saunas are very attractive for this reason to those who move a lot or have limited space to work with.

Infrared saunas offer many health benefits, both physical and mental. This article will tell you a little bit about these benefits and give you an idea of what to expect if you decide to try out this revolutionary new type of sauna. Before I go any further - two words of caution. Don't forget to drink plenty of water before getting in the sauna; otherwise, you could easily become dehydrated. Also, never get in a sauna after drinking heavily, as this increases the odds of dehydration.

The infrared technology has the ability to penetrate deeply into the body which can help you to really sweat and release toxins. The purpose of any sauna is to sweat but with the infrared sauna you have less heat within the enclosure itself so it is far easier to stay in it for extended periods of time.

Unlike the traditional sauna it is easier to breathe which makes it more comfortable to sit in. When I do an infrared sauna session I normally bring in a good book and a cup of nice herbal tea and relax for thirty minutes.

There are different types of portable saunas available - some are fold-up, allowing you to take them just about anywhere. Others are constructed much like a traditional style of sauna but are much easier to install or take apart when moving.

There is also the type which is like a box from which your head and arms protrude from - a little strange looking, but very effective. You could read or watch TV while having a sauna with one of these units. The rest of you is in the sauna, with only your head and hands outside.

Personally, I like the more traditional style enclosure. It makes you feel like you're in a sauna, but for many people space is at a premium, making the box style a good choice.

An infrared sauna offers a great way to relax and unwind after a long day while providing all of the health benefits of a traditional sauna (and then some). While it takes longer to start sweating in an infrared sauna - in fact, you may wonder if it's broken for the first ten minutes or so until the sweating suddenly begins about 15 minutes in. After a good sweat and a shower, you'll feel relaxed and wonderful inside and out.
