Infrared heat, which is the warmth from the sun, will not cause tanning or promote skin cancer (tanning is caused by ultraviolet (UV) light, not infrared light). Infrared heat is so safe that it is used to warm pre-mature babies. It is very effective, perhaps the best way to deliver heat therapy. Infrared heat provides more efficient heat transfer and deeper tissue and joint penetration than by using hot air, steam, or hot water. More comfort; no hot air, hot water or steam to sear your skin or make breathing difficult or uncomfortable. Air in the infrared sauna is heated to 110-120F, not the 150-180F in a traditional hot air sauna.
