The two main types of infrared saunas are bio ceramic tube infrared saunas and carbon fiber infrared saunas. There are several differences between the two types. The ceramic tube sauna has been around the longest and the carbon fiber is a new style and technology in infrared heaters.
Carbon Fiber Infrared Saunas are slightly more expensive than bio ceramic tube infrared saunas. The heat in carbon infrared saunas is evenly distributed all throughout the sauna and has a very large surface area. In contrast, ceramic versions result in heat that is concentrated closer to the heaters themselves. Quick, smooth and evenly distributed heat fills the sauna in carbon fiber saunas, where ceramic saunas quickly heat up but heat is more intense closer to the heaters.
Ceramic tube heaters are long, skinny tubes that emit infrared ray waves in all directions, thus reflectors are used to reflect the IR waves from the backside of the tubes into the sauna. The limitation is that they can create areas of concentrated heat waves where it is really hot and some areas that are cooler with less concentrated heat.
Infrared rays are thermal heat, like the sun’s rays, and heat up what they bump into. If you stand in the sun, you feel hot until you step into the shade, where it feels cooler even though the temperature did not change. Infrared waves work similarly.
The key purpose of the carbon fiber panel heaters is to create an even overall pattern of infrared waves inside the sauna. The entire panel can cover a large area of the walls, backs of benches and even floor panels and will emit an evenly distributed pattern of infrared rays. The goal is to heat the sauna user evenly to get a full body sweat going.
Carbon Fiber Infrared saunas are the most durable with flexible and less fragile than ceramic heater rods. Carbon fiber saunas are also the most efficient with the lowest cost of operation. Most of our customers that have had the opportunity to try both options prefer the carbon fiber infrared sauna option.

One of the recent trends that have caught my attention (it has also been around for many, many years) is meditation. Allowing your mind to fully relax and drain all thoughts to a state of complete calmness has been touted by many for years as one of the most important things you can do for yourself. It is so incredibly hard to find a place to experience this full mind relaxation without other distractions and interruptions. The sauna came to the top of my mind as an amazing place to do daily meditation.
Saunas, especially those within the comfort of your own home, give you a place to allow both your body and mind to relax simultaneously. The twenty to forty minutes you take daily in the sauna allow you to slip into a meditative near-sleep state while you eliminate toxins from your body. Your mind can clear fully and all of your concerns can melt away.
Some of the major benefits of meditation include healthy cardiovascular health by slowing the heart rate and pace of breathing, lowering stress levels, strengthening the immune system and improved self-esteem and a more positive outlook on life.
Having the comfort of your own home sauna gives you the perfect place to practice daily meditation, to relax both your mind and body. Head to SaunasAndStuff.com to find your new mediation sanctuary!

Many people are beginning to realize the various health benefits of saunas, and pre-built sauna kits are making it easier for saunas to fit in just about anyone’s home or backyard, no matter what the size.
Despite saunas having been around for centuries, the increased focus on stress relief and improvement of health in society today has brought saunas back to the forefront. In addition to providing a relaxing experience, saunas also cleanse the body of toxins and other impurities, ease joint and muscle pain, stimulate metabolism, and provide many other holistic health benefits.
People are also entertaining at their homes more often, and focusing more on spending time with family. The social aspect of saunas allows families to enjoy their custom built sauna kits in the comfort of their own home. Coupled with the health benefits and relaxation, it is a win-win cocktail of enjoyment.
The ever-increasing popularity of saunas has led to many innovative design options, including various heating technologies and a wide variety of home kits, pre-built kits or custom designed kits to allow individuals and families to build the sauna of their dreams within the space they have available. These sauna kits are easy-to-use and can fit any living situation and budgets. Many new heating technologies including wood, electric dry, electric steam and infrared sauna heat provide even more options to the consumer than ever before. In addition, the increasing coverage of carbon fiber infrared saunas in the news has allowed them to become a best seller at SaunasAndStuff.com.
With this growing trend of sauna popularity, we cannot wait to see what comes on the market next. If you are looking for the perfect option to relax, improve your health and spend time with your loved ones, a sauna might be the ticket for you!

We at www.SaunasAndStuff.com would like to help demystify the health risks of saunas and give you some facts about the risks:
- Cooling down is as important as the heating process in your sauna session. It is safe to take a few moments after exiting the sauna before entering a cold plunge in a pool or shower. After your session you can turn the sauna off, open the door slightly, and allow your body to cool down for 10 minutes. If you shiver afterward, it is a sign of the automatic responses of your body trying to warm itself back up. You may want to reenter the sauna and allow your body to cool longer afterward. If you ever feel slightly sick after using the sauna, a less hot sauna and warmer, longer cool down is suggested for future use. Sleep disturbances can also occur if your body is not cooled down properly, so give yourself sufficient time to cool down after using the sauna.
- Prolonged stays in the sauna may lead to the loss of electrolytes from the body, which is similar to what can happen to your body after rigorous exercise. Risks of dehydration leading to heat stroke can occur if you are not hydrating enough. Always drink plenty of fluids before, during and after using the sauna. Using the sauna during alcohol withdrawal or while “hung over” can also cause dehydration, so it is not recommended to use the sauna after a night of drinking.
- Ease yourself into regular sauna use slowly to lower the risks. Start with short intervals once or twice a week, and work up from there. And always remember, if at any time during your sauna session you feel dizzy, sleepy or any discomfort, exit the sauna immediately.
Saunas have many health benefits and should be used correctly to eliminate any risks associated with them. Please submit any additional questions to www.SaunasAndStuff.com to answer. We support using saunas safely to maximize the health benefits!
