Infrared Sauna at Restored Life Wellness Center, PLLC

Our saunaWhat Is An Infrared Sauna?

Unlike a traditional sauna, our infrared sauna with chromotherapy at Restored Life Wellness Center, PLLC doesn’t heat the air around you. Instead, infrared lamps (that use electromagnetic radiation) warm your body directly. Infrared panels instead of conventional heat easily penetrate the skin, and heat the body before heating the air. An infrared sauna can operate at a lower temperature, optimally between 120˚F to 140˚F. Traditional saunas depend on convection heat through either electric elements or wood fuel and heat the air in the enclosed room, and usually operate between 150˚F and 180˚F.

Exposure to the heated air warms the internal temperature of the body. The nature of convection heat requires that high temperatures be reached to affect the core temperature of the human body. Any thermal therapy has residual health benefits on the body but they are significantly less when compared to the power of infrared light.
