What is the difference between an infrared and traditional sauna?

The infrared sauna, of Japanese origin. It uses a bit of the same principle, but this time it heats the body without contact, this time at temperatures between 55º and 60, thanks to infrared radiation.
Remember : The main difference of the infrared cabin is that it offers dry and uniform heat and the radiation penetrates the tissues and activates the metabolism, which is not the case with a traditional sauna. Soft, it is often easier to bear than that of a steam sauna.
What are the benefits of the infrared sauna on the body?
The purpose of the infrared sauna is to set the molecules of the body in motion through high temperatures. To eliminate the heat it stores, the body will trigger significant perspiration. This beneficial sweating makes it possible to eliminate around 80% of water and 20% of toxins, while burning calories, compared to only around 5% for a traditional sauna.
