2 Years ago we used to get calls from people researching infrared saunas and they would ask, “I’m interested in a sauna. What is this “infrared stuff”. Now, more and more people like yourself have heard about the health benefits achieved from regular use of their infrared sauna. We hear every week from customers that tell us how much better they are feeling or the changes they have seen from using their Clearlight® infrared sauna.

Infared Sauna - Far Infrared Therapy


Infrared therapy is low temperature therapy.

The scientific principles that are used to calculate infrared emissions from a surface or body show that lower temperatures produce higher quality far infrared heat. A far infrared heater having a surface temperature of approximately 180-200° F, like our Clearlight True Wave™ Heaters, will produce much higher quality far infrared heat than a heater running at 450 degrees or, as some heaters do, 700 degrees. Add in the additional benefit of 1,000 watts of full spectrum infrared in our Clearlight Sanctuary Saunas™ and receive the ultimate in infrared therapy.

Warm up your sauna for about 10-15 minutes then get in. Once you are in your sauna turn the temperature all the way up. The temperature will climb during your 30-45 minute session. Because infrared therapy is low temperature therapy you will able to stay in longer, sweat more and receive more benefit.


The larger size of our True Wave™ Far Infrared heaters mean more surface area, resulting in lower surface temperature. The result of this low temperature is that our heaters produce more FAR or LONG wave infrared heat which is more therapeutic for your body. This means better performance within the optimal wavelength range of 6 to 12 microns with a large portion of wavelengths at 9.4 microns. The human body absorbs more infrared at 9.4 microns.

With the high far infrared output (emissivity) of our heaters, you not only get the highest quality infrared heat, but you get a lot of it, and right where you want it – your body core. We position our heaters so that they surround your body concentrating the heat on your body core.

The key to infrared therapy is heating your body directly so you want heat on the front of your body and on the back of your body. Every Clearlight Sauna® model has heaters on the front wall, back wall, side walls, underneath the bench, next to your calves and in the floor. Surround Yourself In Wellness™ with Clearlight® infrared saunas.

Is the cabin temperature important?

The answer to this question is Yes and No. In an infrared sauna, the infrared heat warming your body is the most important aspect of your sauna. You can sit in your sauna with the door and roof vent open and you will still sweat and get the benefits of the healing and relaxing infrared heat. That being said, everyone wants the cabin temperature in their sauna to be warm as it is more comfortable to sit in and it helps raise core body temperature. The combination of excellent quality infrared heat and a sufficiently warm sauna cabin is the key to a quality far infrared sauna.

As a sauna manufacturer, we have to find that balance between heaters that produces excellent quality infrared heat that will penetrate deep into your body and heaters that generate enough infrared heat to warm the sauna so you are comfortable.

All Clearlight Sauna® models achieve this balance for an exceptional sauna session. Our heaters produce high quality infrared heat and do an excellent job of warming the sauna cabin.

Why is the placement of the heaters important ?

One of the keys to infrared therapy is warming your body core. This is achieved by concentrating the infrared heat on the front and back of your body. The heaters in your sauna are placed strategically to warm your body core and raise your core body temperature.

Our back wall heaters run the full length of your back. Our front heaters are located so they direct the infrared heat at your front core. They are very effective at heating your body core and helping your body detox.

Why is a Clearlight® Sauna so effective?

When you are sitting in a traditional sauna, you are sitting in a hot room; 180-220 degrees. In your Clearlight Premier or Clearlight Sanctuary Infrared Sauna™, about 20% of the heat is heating the air and the other 80% directly heats your body. The warming effect on your body stimulates your cardiovascular system, your immune system and your lymphatic system. Your bodies response to that is to sweat.

Warm your sauna up for 10-15 minutes then get in. As the infrared heat warms your body directly, you will start to sweat and you will sweat profusely. You will find you may actually sweat more in an infrared sauna than in a traditional rock sauna. Studies show that sweat from a traditional sauna contains about 3-5% toxins where sweat from your infrared sauna contains about 17-20% toxins. The detoxifying and deep penetrating heat from a Clearlight® sauna makes them very, very effective
