As always, technology continues to fascinate us, and this new rage in portable sauna machines is no exception. Typically something you would find in high end gym, or resort spa, a sauna is a healthy way to purge your body of toxins and lose some weight in the process.
A portable infrared sauna is an innovative solution to the person who has no space at home to install a sauna, and no time to go hang out at the gym everyday. And like the name implies, these are portable, so they can be set up anywhere you like.
The purpose of a sauna is to supply heat to the body in order to draw out impurities. While the traditional sauna relies on steam and hot air to do this, an infrared sauna takes that element away and replaces it with clean infrared.
Sometimes referred to as a modular sauna room, the portable sauna is able to penetrate heat deeper into the skin than steam does, encouraging circulation and allowing for more dangerous toxins to be emitted in the sweat. It derives this heat from an infrared radiant heater, which promotes the body to sweat while sitting down in the portable unit.
How Can it Be Portable?
Unlike a traditional sauna, the portable infrared sauna does not require insulation. They are constructed of lightweight material which can easily be folded together and moved from room to room.
There are a number of different types available, including some that snap together. If you want the best advice on which one has what you are looking for, check some sauna review sites. Not only will you find out how beneficial the infrared sauna is, you will see which of the portable types will work best with your living space.
Some are so versatile that they may be taken with you on vacation, while others have been designed to be set up outside. You will also want to look into the dimensions, as they come built for 2,4 and even 6 people. The smaller unit is great for couples only, while the 4 and 6 seater would be for a family that plans on using the machine together.
Admittedly, the one that we tried out did leave us feeling fresh and cleansed. You do feel some tingling, but it is not a hot and humid environment like you find in the steam saunas. If you like the idea of cleansing toxins this way, but not the idea of lots of steam, this is definitely a new product to consider.
Portable infrared saunas are an inexpensive solution to the benefits of a sauna without any hassle. If you prefer to work out at home, but want the full benefit of a gym, this can offer that to you.
