A traditional hot rock sauna uses heated stones and water to create a hot and humid atmosphere capable of providing a number of health benefits. A hot rock sauna heats the air to heat the body. Heat and humidity: Very dry until water is sprinkled over hot rocks. Both temperature and humidity are adjustable, by adding water to rocks to add humidity and changing the temperature setting on your thermostat.
Infrared saunas use advanced infrared heaters to heat your body directly. Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they use infrared lamps (that use electromagnetic radiation) to warm your body directly. The infrared heat increases thermal energy, which induces a deep and relaxing sweat in your body. Infrared heaters are more energy efficient than traditional hot rock heaters.
