What is an infrared cabin?

An infrared cabin is a type of sauna that uses infrared rays. Unlike the traditional sauna, which uses hot stones and steam, the infrared cabin heats the body from the inside out. The infrared rays penetrate deep into the skin and warm the tissues, resulting in increased blood circulation and improved metabolism. Compared to the traditional sauna, the infrared cabin is effective and more pleasant to use even at lower temperatures.

Myth 1: Infrared cabins are unhealthy

You have probably heard that infrared cabins are unhealthy. But this is a myth! On the contrary, the heat of the infrared sauna can even have positive effects on your body. The deep penetrating heat relaxes your muscles and releases tension. The circulation is also stimulated and the skin can benefit from the cleansing effect. However, it is important that you stick to the recommended sitting time and drink enough to support your body. This way you can enjoy the benefits of the infrared cabin without harming your health.

Myth 2: Infrared cabins are not as effective as conventional saunas

You may have heard that infrared cabins are not as effective as traditional saunas. But this is a myth! Infrared cabins are indeed very effective in cleansing the body and relieving pain and inflammation. The difference is that the conventional sauna heats the air, while the infrared cabin heats the body tissues directly.

Increased heat absorption allows heat to penetrate deeper into the body, resulting in increased sweat production and thus improved performance of the sweat glands. In addition, infrared cabins can be operated at lower temperatures, which is beneficial for people with cardiovascular problems or other health limitations. So do not be fooled by this myth and enjoy the benefits of an infrared cabin!

Myth 3: Infrared cabins are very expensive

You think that visiting an infrared cabin is very expensive? This is a common myth that is not true. On the contrary, infrared cabins are a cost-effective alternative to traditional sauna visits. You do not need expensive wooden structures or complicated heating systems to reach the desired temperature. They are also more energy efficient and consume less electricity than conventional saunas.

In addition, you can install an infrared cabin at home and save the cost of a gym or spa. Likewise, there are different models and sizes for every budget. So don’t let the myth scare you away and consider whether an infrared cabin could be a cost-effective and convenient option for you.

Myth 4: For the infrared cabin you need special equipment

You think you need special equipment to use an infrared cabin? This is a myth that you should not fall for. Unlike conventional saunas, the use of an infrared cabin does not require additional accessories such as a sauna bucket or sauna oils. You can simply wear comfortable clothes that you wear at home, or sit or lie down on a towel.

Some people prefer to sit naked in the booth, but that’s entirely up to you. As for the equipment, all you need is an infrared cabin and a power outlet to connect it. It really is that simple! So don’t let this myth scare you away and enjoy the benefits of an infrared cabin without any additional cost or equipment.

Myth 5: They are not suitable for people with cardiovascular disease

Another myth that is often mentioned in connection with infrared cabins is the claim that they are not suitable for people with cardiovascular diseases. But this is also a mistake. In fact, the infrared cabin can have positive effects on the cardiovascular system. By dilating blood vessels and increasing blood flow, the heart is relieved and blood pressure can decrease.

Of course, people with serious cardiovascular diseases should still consult their doctor before using an infrared cabin. However, for most people, the infrared cabin is a safe and effective way to promote their health.

Conclusion: Why should you give an infrared cabin a chance?

So why should you give an infrared cabin a chance? Quite simply, there are many benefits you can enjoy if you regularly sit in an infrared cabin. The infrared rays relax the muscles very effectively and can also help to relieve pain. They can also help you sleep better and feel better overall. So, if you are looking for a way to improve your health and well-being, you should definitely try an infrared cabin.
