Relaxing Infrared Sauna Right Around the Corner in Renton
There’s one big difference between traditional steam and infrared saunas: the temperature. Typical steam saunas operate at high temperatures (between 150 and 195° F), but infrared saunas run at cooler temperatures (around 140° F), making them much more comfortable.
Both types have very similar benefits, but the body heating methods are different. In a traditional sauna, perspiration starts when a bather steps into a heated room. The hot air, hot walls and hot rocks create an enveloping heat. An infrared sauna uses infrared energy at a wavelength similar to that already emitted by the body, allowing the energy to penetrate the skin and warm muscles and joints. This energy helps the body’s temperature slowly increase and causes perspiration.
