How Does a Far Infrared Sauna WorkSunlight is composed of different lights. Some of them are visible while others invisible. There are two types of invisible lights in sunlight including infrared and ultraviolet. The infrared rays are those that are useful for our human body, while the ultraviolet rays are extremely dangerous for the human skin that can even cause cancer in some worst cases. Infrared saunas work to provide us with the good effects of infrared. They work on the same principle of old traditional saunas; however, there is a small difference in the working mechanism.

While the traditional saunas used to heat up the human body by heating up air in the room, the infrared saunas achieve the same purpose directly heating up the body. They have special heaters installed through which they emit these rays that pour such good effects on human skin. These rays are known for increasing the temperature of human body. When the temperature increases, certain harmful substances in the human skin die. They can penetrate deep into human skin.  

 It is important to expose most of the body so you can absorb most of the rays approaching your body. A far infrared sauna is just like any other traditional sauna in look. It consists of a small room where you can sit and relax for some time and absorb the useful rays of infrared in your body.  However, there is a clear difference in working mechanism of this type of sauna. Instead of heating up the air in the room, they directly heats up the body of the user.

It works by increasing the temperature of human body and activating the sweat glands. On activation, the glands emit sweat from body making it lighter and healthier. During this process, the body eliminates toxins and others harmful substances from the body. It improves the metabolism of human body and also brings about many other useful changes.

According to a latest recent research, they can penetrate into body as deep as 1.5 to 2 inches.  The wavelengths of these rays suit human body most. The wavelengths of these rays closely resemble those emitting by human body. This is the reason why human body absorbs 93% of these rays.  Far infrared sauna is the latest form of traditional sauna, but it is much better than the traditional one because of the benefits it contains for human body. Contrary to traditional sauna, the users need to spend just 10-15 minutes in a far infrared sauna.
