How Safe Are Infrared Saunas?

When it comes to how safe are infrared saunas, they are considered completely safe. When it comes to all the benefits they are well known for, they can be extremely beneficial when it comes to your health. So are portable infrared saunas safe? Yes, if used properly, they can offer the same benefits as a standard infrared sauna and don’t pose any additional risk. 

Because infrared light heats the body directly, instead of the space around you like traditional hot rock or steam saunas, you can enjoy lower, much more comfortable temperatures. However, with all sauna sessions, ensure you drink plenty of water before, during and after your sauna sessions to stay hydrated and if you do suffer from health issues, we do always recommend talking to your healthcare provider first. 

In addition to the benefits of the infrared light, you can experience colour therapy with our saunas that feature an Found—Space Sauna LED Colour Module. The Colour Module floods your sauna with the colour of your choice - red is great for inducing sleep, orange or yellow are known to help with inflammatory symptoms and aiding muscles that have atrophy.

Health benefits of using an infrared sauna regularly can include: 

  • Removal of heavy metals and toxins
  • Weight loss
  • Improved sleep 
  • Reduction in pain, inflammation 
  • Improved cardiovascular health 
  • Muscle recovery 
  • Clearer skin
