Infrared Saunas vs Traditional Saunas South Africa
Whereas Traditional saunas transfer heat by circulating hot air, thereby warming your body from your head down, the far infrared heat rays warm your body directly. This allows an in-depth heat in a more pleasant temperature of 110 – 150°F (43 – 66°C ), thus providing more health benefits and a highly enjoyable and comfortable environment.
Traditional saunas need high air temperatures to pull impurities from the body, but infrared heated saunas can directly penetrate up to 45 mm inside the body. Impurities can be pushed out using lower and more comfortable temperatures.
