What are the health benefits of infrared saunas?

“The Far Infrared sauna is the safest, most efficient and economical way of eliminating stored toxins, making it a household necessity. I am convinced that the Far Infrared sauna is something that everyone should incorporate into their lifestyle to restore health. The Far Infrared sauna is far safer and more tolerable than a conventional sauna because it uses a heat energy that penetrates into tissues, triggering mobilization of chemicals from fat storage, directly into the sweat.”
(Sherry A. Rogers, M.D. Centre for Environmental Medicine)


It has become well known that people who take regular saunas (2-3 per week) reduce their incidence of colds and influenza by over 65% (a study by the British Medical Association).


While many people use saunas primarily for relaxation and stress reduction, the other health benefits are increasing the popularity of saunas. The reduction and removal of body toxins through the sweating process is becoming a highly regarded benefit of the sauna.


Hundreds of years ago, people discovered and turned to heat therapy as a source of natural healing for many illnesses and discomforts. Far Infrared saunas are growing in popularity and are naturally rising to the top of health regime requirements.

Can SaunaMed infrared saunas be used outdoors?

Yes and no. Our infrared saunas are not designed to be used  outside on their own. You can only use a SaunaMed sauna outside if it is inside a summer house, shed or garage. Many customers like to create areas in their gardens where they can relax and enjoy the sauna. While we here at SaunaMed don’t manufacture outbuildings we can offer recommendations.
