Infrared saunas use light waves to create heat. "FAR" is used to describe where those waves fall on the light spectrum.
Traditional saunas use steam to heat the air, which warms your body. Infrared saunas use light waves to heat your body directly, without first warming the air within the sauna.
The eustress (beneficial stress) generated in your body from Infrared Sauna use is the catalyst for many health benefits. Repeated sauna use has been shown to significantly increase those benefits.
Thanks to a long history of use, IR Saunas are very well studied. The first IR sauna debuted as the 'electric light bath' at the Chicago World Fair in 1893. The FAR technology innovation had to wait for NASA research into FAR Infrared for the space program in the sixties. Since then the understanding of how this technology affects our biology has grown impressively.
