Breaking Down Near, Mid, and Far Infrared Sauna Benefits

Breaking Down Near, Mid, and Far Infrared Sauna Benefits

Posted by

Sunlight combines invisible and visible lights. Visible lights are the seven colors of the rainbow, while ultraviolet rays and infrared rays make up the invisible elements. Modern infrared saunas combine near, mid, and far infrared sauna benefits to deliver their fantastic health benefits.

Why Infrared Saunas are Better than Other Saunas

Saunas are typically classified according to how they cause the body’s temperature to rise. These are the most common types  of saunas:

  • Steam Sauna: also known as a Turkish style spa; involves lower temperature due to very intense steam.
  • Electric Sauna: uses electricity instead of stones or wood for heating; can be an infrared or steam sauna.
  • Finnish Sauna: traditionally uses wood burning or hot stones; can become very humid due to the moisture.
  • Infrared Sauna: uses light  to create heat and warm  the body from the inside.

Infrared saunas are universally considered superior to the three other sauna types. Instead of heating the air, infrared light heats  the body at the cellular level to provide scientifically-proven dry sauna benefits. As a result, you sweat much more but at a lower temperature.  Some infrared saunas even provide the full spectrum of infrared. This powerful combination is achieved by fusing three waves  of infrared light — near, mid, and far infrared light.

3 Wavelengths of Infrared Light

Each type of infrared light resonates differently with the subcutaneous fat layer of the body. This gives each wavelength unique healing properties:

  • Near Infrared

Thanks to a shorter wavelength, near-infrared light mostly penetrates the epidermis, or the topmost layer of the skin. This makes it very effective for tissue growth, skin renewal, cell health, and wound healing.

However, it's not advisable to choose a sauna that only offers near-infrared light. It can get too warm if used on its own, so users usually have to change positions during a session so that they won't get too hot. The best way to experience near infrared heat is in combination with other wavelengths.

  • Mid Infrared

Mid-infrared light gets deeper into the body than near infrared, making it excellent for improving blood flow and circulation. Used regularly, mid-infrared sauna therapy has been found to reduce joint and muscle pain significantly by penetrating inflamed or injured soft tissue to trigger rapid healing.

  • Far Infrared

Far infrared rays provide the deepest heat penetration. It’s primarily responsible for fully activating our sweat glands. This process is important for detoxification and cell rejuvenation which are the root of all sauna health benefits.

Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas

Since each wavelength offers different health benefits, experiencing all three at once is the best way to maximize the benefits of using a sauna. While many companies claim that their saunas offer the full spectrum, most saunas do not meet the complete criteria and equipment required to achieve the full spectrum.
