Wellis Sauna's

One of the main differences between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna is the heat involved while inside the unit. Traditional dry saunas use temperatures as high as 185 to 195 degrees F (85-90 Celsius), which can overwhelm those who are more sensitive to the heat.

Infrared saunas use a much milder temperature environment of between 120 to 150 degrees F (45-65 Celsius). However, because the heat of infrared saunas travels much deeper into the body, they are able to cause a more vigorous sweat at lower temperature, states Dr. Richard Beever in the July 2009 issue of “Canadian Family Physician.”
