Traditional vs. Infrared sauna

Finnish Sauna vs. Infrared saunaNow there are many active people, who aware about the health and beauty of the human body. Some of them go in for sport, but some clever and lazy are trying different methods. In addition, the best one is SAUNA. When I say sauna, I mean all kinds of thermal procedures such as Russian Banya, Turkish Hamam, Japanese Sento etc.
Finnish sauna as skin-cleaner
However, when I hear about Infrared sauna as Finnish sauna alternative, I am not sure in its safety. Finnish sauna helps to clean our skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and a major eliminative channel it is a pity but in most people, it is inactive, congested and toxic. Some factors as sun exposure, use of synthetic clothing, bathing in chlorinated water and exposure to hundreds of chemicals as a result the skin is heavily damaged. However, chlorinated water cannot stop me from Jacuzzi. For more look through: Comparing Infrared to Traditional Sauna as exact as Hamburger to Lobster grills!"
Traditional sauna’s benefitsJacuzzi and Finnish sauna
Also, I do not want to be as chicken in the microwave. Therefore, I have prejudice against Infrared sauna. Of course excessive sympathetic nervous system activity and emotions such as fear, anger and guilt cause blood to be withdrawn from the skin, contributing to inactivity of the skin. Nevertheless, we can restore our state of mind and body by means of traditional sauna as they provide many of the benefits including enhanced circulation and oxidation of the tissues. We often conclude that procedures our predecessors used are the healthiest and most useful. Well … Finnish sauna – its health improvement role and health benefits are enormous.

As for Infrared sauna, we have a trouble. In traditional sauna, Russian banya and Turkish hamam we heat our body up from the outside. We warm our skin, our head and our legs. But in case of infrared sauna, we heat up from the inside. We warm our bones, our bowels and muscles. I am not sure that hot Finnish guys invented the Sauna to warm their stomach. They use an alcohol for it. But for their bodies they build nice wooden houses or cabins. The Infrared sauna has the same wooden box with several infrared heaters that works by means of heaters that emit infrared radiation without heating the air. In the theory, a heater produces the radiant energy that is as though similar to the heat from the sun is a completely safe form of naturally occurring energy. However, the IR sauna heater is not similar to sun. Its heat penetrates more than 1.5 inches into the body. Are you sure that it is health giving? I am not.

I publish pictures of IR sauna cabins, and as you can see, they are similar to traditional sauna cabins. They all are made, with love and patience, using different sorts of wood, and the only difference – is the heater. I do not insist, but it will be better, if in your cabin, will be a traditional heater, and you will use my recopies from my previous posts.
