Red and Infrared light can be very healing and regenerative. Red Light Therapy is a safe, easy, and an effective way to promote calming energy and healing. Infrared Light saunas are different than traditional saunas because they use infrared thermal light to penetrate your skin’s barrier in order to raise your core temperature whereas conventional saunas have to heat the air in the sauna before it can actually heat you up. Because of this, a far-infrared sauna gets less hot, allowing you to spend more time enjoying the benefits. Continued as a steady routine of light therapy, there’s much more to learn about the different ways these types of saunas benefit the body.

Sweating is one of your body’s natural ways of clearing out toxins, so by promoting sweating with your sauna session, you are helping flush these out.
