Infrared Sauna Pod for Sale

DIY Sauna Course

Every wellness enthusiast has heard of the benefits of saunas. When the tradition of sauna bathing started, it was a hygienic and social activity. But over time, those who frequent gyms and spas started to like the effect of sauna sessions and are inching towards buying one. Today, infrared saunas are less social and typically meant for individual bathing. With this in mind, manufacturers have started making smaller saunas and have now come down to infrared sauna pods.

When compared to dry saunas, these pods are more cost effective and energy efficient. Twenty minutes in one of these saunas can be great for your health. Apart from feeling more rested and relaxed, you also feel relief if you have sore muscles and can improve overall health and well-being.

They are particularly great for those who do not like the high temperatures of a traditional pod which heats the air in the room and in turn heats your body. Infrared sauna pods on the other hand use light which penetrates about an inch and a half into the body without heating the heat in the air.

They also have a lot of health benefits like:

  • Better sleep
  • Relaxation
  • Improved circulation
  • Relief from joint pain such as arthritis
  • Help for people with chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Clear and tighter skin

These pods have a cushioned bed on which you can lie down. The IR lights are attached to the top of the pod which closes over your body from shoulders down.

You could also get an outdoor sauna pod that resembles a regular IR sauna and comes in different styles and sizes. Like regular IR saunas, pods also heat the body directly instead of heating the air in the pod. The heat vibrates water molecules in the body and causes them to break down. This causes you to sweat. Many manufacturers are making pods that offer the full range of infrared rays. This includes near-infrared, mid-infrared and far-infrared radiation. It gives you the benefit of the whole spectrum of this radiation.

Near IR rays are emitted through large red bulbs and using them is sometimes also referred to as red light therapy. It helps blood circulation, promotes cell regeneration and rejuvenates your skin. Far IR radiation supposedly helps with relaxation. It heats your core and helps keep bacteria out. It also helps your metabolic rate and helps with lymphatic cleansing.

Sauna pods, while being a bit of a luxury, offer several benefits. Some of them have a non-porous interior lining. This helps maintain sanitation unlike wooden saunas which require regular cleaning. Some of them are also lined with jades that have healing properties.

Sauna pods can be used as often as an IR sauna. The key to using both is to keep the sessions reasonably timed and stay hydrated. The rules are also the same. Do not go in if you are under the influence of alcohol or other narcotics, pregnant or have pre-existing health conditions which deem saunas bad for you. Consult your physician in case you have any doubts. Do not apply lotions or oils on your skin and stay away from food for one to two hours before the session. After a session, try to eat as healthily as possible. If you want company, you can always opt for a double sauna. The pod is designed for maximum comfort as it keeps you in a horizontal position.

The Bottom Line

A sauna pod encapsulates that experience of energized, heated air and cycles it through the pod. This results in the generation of intense levels of heat. The temperatures can be adjusted and one of the biggest advantages sauna pods have over saunas is for those who suffer from claustrophobia. The pod allows you to keep your head outside and breathe fresh while your body gets the treatment it needs and deserves.
