The benefits of a sauna have been well documented for a long time, and with the introduction of infrared technology, they have only gotten better. Now the benefits are not only enhanced, but without the steam, heat and water to worry about, they are portable too. If you are in the market for a new portable infrared sauna, check review sites and look for these features:
Size – You can find simple infrared saunas that are built just for one. Or some that are larger and hold up to four or six people. When checking the reviews, see what people are saying about the size and comfort, and whether or not they are able to freely move around. You may not like the portable type where your body is encased with your head sticking out, or this might be just what you are looking for.
Larger models are constructed of light wood and fold up for mobility. Check the weight if you have plans on bring your portable sauna along with you on trips.
Comfort – The larger portable infrared saunas will typically have some type of seating inside. Look for comments about the comfort of this seating and if it allows for you to stretch out and relax.
Heat Control – One of the added benefits of infrared over steam is that you have better control over how hot the sauna environment will get. Try and find models that have a control unit, ideally with three settings. Infrared saunas go deeper into the tissue than a steam sauna does, and you may not be comfortable with the higher heat level.
Price – Of course price is always going to play a big part in the infrared sauna that you choose. Don’t let that be the only deciding factor, but do ensure that you are not over paying for the product. If you see one that is significantly lower priced than the others, check thoroughly into why. Chances are it is missing many of the features that would appeal to you in an infrared sauna that is portable.
