WHAT IS AN INFRARED SAUNA?

Infrared Saunas are a different type of sauna to traditional saunas. The infrared light emits a radiated heat, penetrating deep within muscles, tissues and cells. It is a slow heating process with a dry heat. This makes it easier to breathe in comparison to traditional saunas.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRADITIONAL SAUNA AND AN INFRARED SAUNA?

A traditional sauna uses convection and conduction to heat the surface of your skin. Infrared saunas, however, use infrared heating panels that emit light helping your body to internally heat, giving users a deeper cleansing experience. 

WHY DO PEOPLE USE INFRARED SAUNAS?

Infrared saunas provide a relaxing space to allow your body to detoxify and support chronic conditions and mild health concerns.  As your body absorbs the infrared heat, this increases thermal energy, inducing a deep and relaxing sweat. At GESAC, we offer the state-of-the-art Sunlighten infrared sauna.
