About the Sauna Talk Website

From traditional steam saunas to far-infrared home versions, we are passionate about saunas and their incredible health benefits. Some of the topics we cover include:

An In-Depth Look at Traditional Saunas

The Finnish or hot rocks sauna is the best known type of sauna. Also known as a wet/dry sauna, these traditional sweat lodges heat the air to a temperature of 180°F which in turn heats the body. This type always uses sauna rocks set atop a heater, and the heater can be electric, gas, or wood-fired. When water is poured on the rocks, the temperature rises temporarily as a dry steam fills the room.

An In-Depth Look at Far Infrared Saunas

Infrared saunas look much like traditional saunas, but they do not use rocks and do not produce steam. Instead, ceramic sauna heaters are used to emit a pleasant form of radiant heat energy known as far infrared ray. The air in the sauna is not heated but the invisible wavelength is able to heat the body directly. It sounds like science fiction but the technology is safe and common; not only is infrared light emitted by every living thing on earth, these types of heaters are used on premature babies in hospital incubators.
