The Far Infrared Portable Sauna - Look & Feel Great

Sep 12, 2008
Sometimes known as "sauna on the go", a far infrared sauna is indeed quite portable and easy to use. For those who live in small spaces or move frequently, this portability is a large part of the draw.

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.

Infrared rays penetrate your body, causing a sweating from deep inside rather than from the surface as in a traditional sauna. While any sauna will produce sweat, an infrared one will generate more sweating without using heat - so you can spend more time in the sauna.

It can be hard to breathe in a traditional sauna; but not in an infrared sauna. In fact, I typically spend about forty minutes in mine, bringing something to read to pass the time. The sweating fostered by an infrared sauna helps your body rid itself of toxins. A sauna also promotes circulation and eases muscular aches and pains. Along with all of this, it's a great way to unwind.

Being that it makes you sweat it helps to cleanse your skin, it also helps with blood circulation and to ease aches and pains. Bottom line it is a healthy way to relax. There are varieties of portable saunas, some are almost like a fold up box and you can take them anywhere. Other's look like a traditional sauna but are easy to install and take apart if you're on the move.

Then there is the truly portable sauna that is like a package. This you get in and your arms and head protrude out of it, kind of looks weird to be honest but yet it is effective. In this case you could watch TV in your room or read a magazine while taking a sauna at the same time. The rest of your body is within the sauna but your hands and head are not.

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.
