The idea behind infrared therapy is to heat your body directly with far infrared heat. In a traditional sauna you are just sitting in a hot room of 80°C-105°C. In an infrared sauna, the heat is heating your body directly and only 20% of the heat is heating the air. You want to heat your body core, meaning your front core and your back core. Your body absorbs the infrared heat and reacts to it. The gentle infrared heat raise your core body temperature and stimulates your metabolism, lymphatic system, immune system and your cardiovascular system. Your body’s response to that is to sweat profusely. In addition to the infrared heat triggering a profuse sweat, the water in our bodies also resonates with far infrared heat and this also helps with the detoxification process. With this in mind, you now understand why we stress the importance of having heaters all around you in an infrared sauna. If you do not have front heaters in your sauna, you will not raise your core body temperature as well and you will not receive as much of the desired effect. All of our Clearlight Infrared Saunas have heaters all around you… on your front, back, sides, calves and legs. We call this 360° heat.
The traditional sauna for thousands of years has been made predominantly from close grain cedar for many reasons:
Cedarwood is soft wood that resists cracking and splitting caused by the heating up and cooling down in the sauna. No sauna wood lasts longer than cedarwood.
Cedarwood contains aromatic oils that are known for their healing and cleansing properties to aid detoxification during the sauna. Cedarwood can also help disperse excess fluids throughout the body.
Cedarwood is naturally anti-fungal and anti-bacterial owing to the unique properties of the cedar oil. This is especially important in the sauna where bodies, moisture and heat combine to make the environment perfect for molds and bacteria.
Cedarwood is one of the most beautiful woods available ranging from a very light honey to a deep walnut shade.
Cedarwood smells good and gives you a true experience. Normally a “non-aromatic”cedar is used in sauna construction that is very subtle and satisfying to the senses.
Cedarwood can be easily sanded inside the sauna to remove any stains caused by perspiration and to bring back the fresh cedar smell.
There is a lot of misinformation about cedar wood on the internet. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) put it best in their September, 1993 report: “EPA believes it is unnecessary to regulate these products because they pose little or no risk to human health or the environment…EPA is not aware of any evidence of injury to human health or the environment due to their use.
Cedar is non-toxic according to the Regulatory Information for Cedar from the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) and World Health Organization(WHO). Please note that an extremely small percentage of the population cannot tolerate the smell of cedarwood. These people have multiple chemical sensitivities(MCS). These people cannot as a rule tolerate any aromatic oils, perfumes, shampoos or herbs. This is unfortunate, but for the rest of us, cedarwood is the sauna wood of choice. We offer nordic spruce models for people with MSC. Our spruce models offer all the therapeutical benefits, as we do not compromise. Nordic spruce is hypoallergenic and it has a nice bright color.
Clearlight prides itself on being one of the few companies that provides you with a genuine lifetime warranty on the entire sauna – heaters, wood, controls and electrical. Your Clearlight Infrared Sauna is built in a modular fashion so replacing parts or panels is never an issue. We only use the highest quality materials in each Clearlight Infrared Sauna to minimize the possibility of warranty issues. Very few infrared sauna companies offer this type of warranty.
The infrared frequency of any infrared heater is determined by the surface temperature of the heater itself. The lower the surface temperature of the heater, the longer the infrared wave and the more beneficial the infrared heat will be. Our large True Wave II™ heaters run at an optimal surface temperature producing exceptional quality far infrared heat. This means our heaters produce the majority of the infrared heat in the vital wave range of 5 to 15 microns with a good portion of wavelengths at 9.4, the optimal absorption range of far infrared by the human body. Only Clearlight Infrared True Wave II heaters combine the high infrared output of ceramic with long wave carbon infrared heat to produce the most effective infrared heaters available. You can only find this patented combination at Clearlight Infrared Saunas!
Infrared heat is completely safe and all objects give off and receive infrared heat. In fact, it is so safe, hospitals use similar heaters to warm newborns. Infrared is a part of nature and essential for life. The human body gives off and receives infrared in the far infrared band. When a mother rubs a babies stomach to relieve pain, it is the infrared heat from her hand that is causing the healing effect. We have tuned our True Wave heaters to give off far infrared in this same range for maximum absorption by your body and for maximum therapeutic benefits.
Yes, you can put our uniquely designed Outdoor Saunas outside. The special design and construction of our Outdoor Sauna will ensure that your cabin reaches the desired temperature and is also adequately protected from the elements as they can withstand most weather conditions*.
*The outdoor sauna comes with a mandatory cover in order to ensure longevity of the external material during all weather conditions.
Our Indoor Sauna range cannot be placed outside as they will not be able to reach the desired temperatures due to colder weather conditions outside. The indoor saunas will also not be able to withstand the weather conditions safely and thus will not be covered by our Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Please consult one of our infrared sauna specialists for more information about putting your sauna outside. Contact us here.

Yes. The ideal way to use a Clearlight Infrared Sauna is to have the infrared heaters on the entire time producing the optimal infrared heat you desire. Infrared heat is most effective at lower temperatures as sweat oils secrete at lower temperatures and this sweat is different than water sweat. Your Clearlight Infrared sauna is designed to heat your body more so than to heat the cabin (about 80% of the heat heats your body and 20% of the heat heats the sauna cabin).
Don’t be fooled by other manufacturers that offer constant infrared heat by reducing the output of their heaters. At the reduced output you are not receiving optimal infrared heat
