Infrared sauna – what is it?
An infrared sauna is heated using infrared rays. In a traditional sauna, the heat comes from the sauna stove, which heats up the air. In an infrared sauna, the heat comes from the panels in the walls and floor of the sauna. The heat from these panels can penetrate deeper into the body than heated air, and therefore you get the heat and begin to sweat at lower temperatures than in a traditional sauna.
The pores in your skin will slowly open and your heart will beat a little faster, so that the blood is pumped through the body faster. In this way, waste materials will also be removed more quickly. An infrared sauna session is a calm and relaxing form of therapeutic treatment with many beneficial effects in the body.

The Benefits of Infrared Sauna
Relaxing & Meditative
The tranquil environment creates a unique opportunity for meditation. Meditation and deep relaxation promote mental strength and health.
Infrared sauna penetrates deeper into the muscles, increases blood flow and helps with faster recovery, regardless of how much sport you do.
When we sweat, we excrete waste products through the skin. The deep heat penetrates deep and in this way you get rid of toxins and heavy metals from the body.
Time in the sauna is calm and enjoyable. It lowers the stress hormone cortisol, and endorphins and other signaling substances are released, leaving you feeling peaceful and at ease.
Circulation & Blood Pressure
An infrared sauna session can be compared to a walk – You sweat, blood vessels dilate, heart rate and circulation increase.
Strengthened Immune Response
The immune system is strengthened as the body’s cells are exposed to mild stress. Reduced cortisol also means our defences are not suppressed.
Great for Skin
Infrared heat improves collagen and elastin production in the skin. After a sauna stay, your skin will feel cleansed and revitalized.
The heat reduces oxidative stress and inflammation. This is supported by the efficient excretion of waste substances through heat and sweating.
