Ancient vs. Modern Technology — Different Types of Saunas
A sauna is a small space where heat is used to stimulate and enhance health.
There are two main types of saunas... wet and dry.

Wet Saunas
A wet sauna — also called a steam sauna — uses water poured over hot stones to heat the space, and in turn, heat the body.
This typically requires a hotter temperature and longer sauna sessions to produce a healthy, detoxifying sweat.
Dry Saunas
Dry saunas use a variation of infrared light to directly heat the user, resulting in a quicker and more efficient sauna experience.

Picture it like this…
A wet sauna is like getting into a cold car during the middle of winter. As you drive warm air begins to circulate, warming the car.
Eventually, the car warms up, but it takes longer because it's heating the whole car.
In contrast, a dry sauna is similar to a tanning bed. In a tanning bed, UV rays are used to directly penetrate the person.
This process is quicker and more efficient because it's directly warming the individual.
An infrared sauna can use a variety of near, mid, and far wavelengths that can penetrate a user's skin, warming up the person and drawing toxins to the surface where they can be sweated out.
Unlike a tanning bed which can be dangerous, infrared saunas are completely safe.
Many people prefer a dry sauna experience because they're more effective, are easier to fit into a busy schedule, provide results quicker, and are more comfortable.

What To Look For
In An Infrared Sauna
There are a lot of available infrared saunas out there at a lot of different price points. Cheap ones cost as little as $100 and ultra-premium ones are as expensive as $10,000.
With so many options out there it can be good to know what is useful, and what is fancy marketing.
Here are 6 things to consider when comparing saunas:

Temperature Ranges — Hottest isn't necessarily the best
A sauna's main purpose is to get hot causing you to sweat, because of that max temperature is a very important factor when choosing a sauna. But be aware, just because a sauna boasts the highest max temperature doesn't mean that you need (or should) sauna at that temperature. The ideal temperature range for an infrared sauna is between 120 and 150 degrees. Anything over this can start getting into unhealthy and even dangerous territory.

Sauna Materials — Be careful what's off-gassing
One of the greatest advantages of sauna-ing is detoxification. One thing to be aware of is the material of the sauna. Some sellers will use cheap, synthetic materials which can off-gas, turning your cleansing session into a reabsorption session. Try to avoid synthetic materials and stick with natural or organic materials such as bamboo, silk, wool, and cotton.

Low EMFs — Heat, not electro-radiation
Making sure your infrared sauna has low to no EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) is very important since over-exposure to EMFs can lead to a variety of health issues. Creating future health problems by trying to be healthy now is like one step forward, three steps back.

Far Infrared or Full Spectrum — More is sometimes more
Not all infrared spectrums are created equal. Far infrared is the most common type of wavelength for saunas because the longer wavelength is best at stimulating sweat. However near and mid-infrared also provide a variety of benefits that far infrared doesn't such as skin surface healing, reduced wrinkles, decreased inflammation, and even pain relief. In this case, more wavelengths are better.

Portable VS. Permanent Sizes
Most infrared saunas are available in both portable or permanent sizes. Both sizes of saunas come with advantages and disadvantages.
Permanent saunas are made from wood or wood composites. They're generally very aesthetic, can fit multiple people, and can often reach higher temperatures, however, they are significantly bigger requiring space that you may or may not have. They can require more upkeep, maintenance, and cleaning. Permanent saunas are more expensive with some of these models getting up to tens of thousands of dollars.
Portable saunas are small, one-person saunas commonly made with a fabric covering and they can be folded up for easier storage. These saunas are much more affordable compared to their wooden counterparts. However portable saunas often don't get as hot, and if we're being honest, look a little funny.
Both types of saunas can be great, we often recommend people start with a small portable sauna first so they can try and experience the rejuvenating experience and then upgrade to a permanent sauna if they want, and have the space.
