For thousands of years cultures around the world have been using heat to improve their overall sense of health and well being. It comes as no surprise, then, that the demand for saunas in modern culture remains.
Infrared and Traditional Saunas
There are two types of saunas available on the market:
- Infrared saunas
- Traditional saunas
Infrared saunas are often referred to as “dry saunas,” as they do not produce steam. They are a popular choice because of their lower price point.
Traditional saunas, however, are still a favorite because of their higher heat capacity (185 to 190 degrees compared to 120 to 150 degrees) and the relaxing “hypersteam” they create.
The Many Health and Wellness Benefits of Saunas
Saunas are often used after a long day at work or a session at the gym because the heat relaxes the muscles and soothes away aches and pains. They also eliminate stress. Your experience in the sauna is designed to induce a deeper sleep, cleanse the skin, flush away toxins, while improving cardiovascular performance, since heat forces the blood vessels to dilate, naturally increasing cardiac output and boosting heart rates anywhere from 110 to 150 beats per minute.
The creation of heat and steam promotes the production of white blood cells, which can keep colds and viruses at bay, and the heat can help you burn calories. While sauna users should not expect substantial weight loss results, Dr. Ward Dean from the U.S. Army medical research team says that a moderately well conditioned person can sweat off 500 grams while sitting in a sauna due to the increased cardiac activity it causes.
