Well, we thought that maybe, besides the experience, we should let you know about the benefits as well. It’s not just about using the infrared sauna for 60 minutes, it’s also about what you get from that time. It works as a great toxin releaser and a friend of tight sleeps. We chose 8 benefits here, but deep down we know it’s more than that. It’s about the happiness that has no price and the incredible feeling of letting everything stressful go away.

Why is Infrared heat so beneficial?

Reduce Stress

Soothe your mind and release your Happy Chemicals

Revitalise Skin

Repair cells, increase collagen with deep penetrating IR heat

Release Toxins

Detox up to 7x more effective than a traditional sauna

Boost Immunity

Keep the bad bugs away stimulate the white blood cells

New You

You have probably enjoyed the soothing, therapeutic benefits of Infrared heat without even knowing it. The sun provides nature`s best Infrared heat therapy and it`s the reason that you seem to instantly relax when your skin is touched by its warmth as it positively activates your body.

More Relaxed

Infrared Therapy may have many benefits for the human body such as stress reduction, detoxification, pain relief, reduction of muscle tension, relaxation, improved circulation, weight loss, skin purification, boosting of the immune system and lowering of blood pressure.

Recover Faster

Relieve pain naturally recover faster from sports

Improve Circulation

Stimulate blood flow and reduce blood pressure

Enhance Sleep

A gentle, soothing heat that promotes relaxation and sleep

Burn Calories

Boost metabolism and burn calories lying down!

To good to be true?

Because far Infrared is radiant heat, your body is being warmed below the surface to provide a deep penetrating heat. What does this mean. Toxins have a better chance of being knocked loose from the fat cells inside your body than if you were using a traditional sauna! Your immune system might be strengthened and you may sleep deeply

Try it Out

Saunas offer many of the same benefits of exercise. You warm up, your heart rate increases, your blood flows better and, of course, you sweat (everyone knows that sweat releases toxins). To top it all off, you burn calories. That's why spending time in a sauna feels so good.  And now it is also affordable. A portable infrared sauna means you don't have to join a fancy health club or build a sauna (can you imagine?) in your own home.

 

The Koanna Infrared Sauna Blanket lets you experience the benefits of Infrared in the comfort of your own home, requiring minimal space requirements and at a fraction of the cost of a traditional sauna.

Koanna, Infrared Therapy for mind, body and spirit too.
