Infrared products have been proven to have several health benefits, physically and mentally. The infrared sauna experience differs from the Finnish sauna experience, but they both have some similar health effects.
SAWO’s infrared products use the far-infrared, which has the longest wavelength penetrating the body deeper than the shorter infrareds. The far-infrared heats the muscles and body from inside out, making the sauna experience very different from a traditional, Finnish sauna, which heats from the outside in. This typically results in very intensive sweating, cleansing the skin very efficiently, improving the recovery of the muscles and accelerating the blood circulation.
The air in infrared sauna is lower than traditional saunas, from 35-45°C to 55-65°C, because the panels do not heat the air as much as they heat the body. The infrared sauna is instantly ready after switching on, so no heating time. For the body to start the sweating it takes some minutes to sit in the sauna room, which the user can spend on calming and relaxing, while e.g., reading or listening to music.
The panels can also be installed into an existing sauna, both electric and wood-heated. This way the sauna experience can go onto another dimension as either one or both can be used at the same time!
