Advantages To Both Types Of Saunas

Most all homeowners looking into the market for a sauna are going with infrared saunas and for good reasons. Infrared saunas have incredible benefits and advantages over traditional rock saunas. The main benefits with infrared heat is that it operates at a much lower temperature than traditional hot rock saunas. Because Infrared saunas operate at a much lower temperature, it makes it much safer and convenient to place the sauna in your home. This makes it easy to add into your daily routine, maximizing all the benefits one can have by using an infrared sauna. Most all infrared saunas simply plug into a 120 Volt outlet making it easy to operate and run, store and use daily.

Both hot rock and infrared saunas promote detoxification through perspiration. These benefits are equal to both types which is one of the main factors people are interested in sauna use. However, infrared saunas are much more tolerable because of the lower operating temperature. At 120 degrees you can withstand the heat and extend the sauna sessions. The sessions in infrared saunas are also much more relaxing and therapeutic compared to conventional saunas . So while both types of saunas promote detoxification, because of the lower temperatures the advantage goes to infrared.

Infrared Heat Benefits

Infrared light is similar to that of the natural light we get from the sun, however without the harmful UV light. Infrared heat is also proven to penetrate almost 2” deep into the body. This is much deeper into the body than conventional saunas and adds deep tissue benefits that appeal to all people. From the research available, Earthlight’s carbon heaters provide a softer, more evenly distributed heat than other infrared saunas on the market. The CarbonPure heating elements plus the larger panels provide a more evenly distributed heat source. There are also more panels (6-10 per sauna) than most other models, allowing for more infrared light from all sides.

This allows for the user to maximize infrared sauna benefits like:

  • • Stress- Greatly reduced
  • • Low Back Pain - relieved
  • • TMJ Arthritis Acel-dacel Injury Sequelae
  • • Compression Fracture - pain eliminated for 3 days with only a single treatment
  • • Muscle Spasms - reduced or eliminated
  • • Post-exercise Muscle Pain - IR proven vital to competitive athletes
  • • Tight Shoulders - relaxed
  • • Arthritis: Gouty, Rheumatoid, Traumatic, DJD – Greatly improved or relieved
  • • Spinal Cord Shock - post traumatic shock treatment
  • • Injuries - radiant heat helps with sprains and strains
  • • Muscle Tension - relaxed
  • • Color Therapy- increase mental state/ relation
  • • Shoulder Pain - relieved or eliminated
  • • Bursitis - relieved or eliminated

Because rock saunas do not penetrate that deep into the skin, they do not provide the benefits listed above. Far Infrared heat does not heat the air directly like traditional saunas but instead heat only the body or objects. Because the air is not hot, the body feels a more “ambient warmth” instead of the hot or “burning” sensation. Infrared does not give off or emit anything harmful or smell from dust, dirt or toxic fumes from paint or finishes.

Also because of the ease of use of infrared saunas, they can be used daily by the user increasing all the added benefits. The biggest selling point for infrared saunas is that they provide a more holistic long term treatment for a wide range of health problems. Medication and other treatment is for short relief or pain reduction, but with constant daily sauna use, these complications are a long term “cure”.

Things To Consider/Dangers

Electromagnetic field or EMF is one of the worries with infrared saunas you may hear about. The exact harm of EMF is still not conclusive scientifically. Most holistic experts agree that it is best to reduce ones exposer to EMF. For those concerned about EMF, it is important to make sure the infrared sauna you are looking to purchase is certified for low EMF. This will help ease any worry about EMF emissions. Earthlight’s CarbonPure heaters are one of the lowest EFM emitters on the market, making it a top pick for anyone concerned about EMF in infrared sauna use.

Because saunas simply plug into any wall outlet and due to the low operating temperature, there is no concern for fire or safety hazards. The electricity cost of most infrared saunas is a few pennies per session, making it very inexpensive for practical regular use.

Warranty & Guarantees

The last thing to consider but probably the most important is the warranty or guarantee of you sauna purchase. When investing in a sauna it is important to make sure you are covered if anything were to go wrong. The biggest thing to stay away from is buying a sauna from a BIG BOX retail site!! This is easily the biggest mistake one can make. You will see these saunas advertised for less but you get what you pay for when it comes to saunas.

They simply know nothing about saunas should you ever have questions(I guarantee you will!) or issues. The warranties and guarantees are no longer than 10 Years and often do not cover damaged parts, heater panels or faulty panel walls. Always check the return policy as well because most companies will charge heavy restocking fees should you want to return your sauna. It is a good policy to buy manufacturer direct from the company or brand. This will usually ensure you get the best price possible. They will cover your purchase much better should anything go out, become damaged or have questions about how to use your newly purchased sauna. Again, buy manufacture direct and deal with people that know and sell their own saunas.

Choose Earthlight

This is really what separates Earthlight from any saunas you would see on the market. We offer fully covered lifetime warranties, a 90 day "try it and love it" money back guarantee, and no restocking fees. So far from all the research we have done, no retailer or manufacture direct site offers anything close to this, giving Earthlight Saunas the edge here as well.


Infrared saunas are by far the better investment for health benefits, relaxation and ease of use over conventional saunas. The added infrared heat also greatly improves body conditions while detoxifying. It is also great for relaxation/meditation especially when used with color therapy lighting. The lower temperatures make for a much more relaxing session for those unable to withstand high heat from rock saunas. Earthlight also has a 90 day "try it and love it" guarantee unmatched in the industry. So go ahead and try infrared therapy and see first-hand what all the craze is about.
