What is the difference between a traditional Finnish Sauna and an Infrared Heat therapy Room?

In a traditional Finnish Sauna, "Climate" is very important. The sauna heater's elements transfer heat to the rocks and wood of the sauna room-causing a soft, radiating heat. the heat "envelopes" the user. The heat is from the rocks and the wood. Steam is an very important part of the sauna climate and the sauna experience. Humidity is adjusted to the user's preferences by sprinkling water on the heated rocks, creating a soft steam.

In an Infrared Heat Therapy Room, the ambient temperature is much lower than a sauna, humidity levels are at normal household humidities, there is less heat-up and the heat is directed at the bather.

(Note: It is recommended that you consult with Erik at Saunas By Erkki about the Pro's and Con's of Infrared Heat Therapy Rooms before you consider purchasing one.)
