Lake Champlain Pools carries Finnleo saunas. Enjoy the benefits of heat bathing: relaxation and stress reduction, sweating (with the associated detoxification) and relieving aches and pains. Both infrared and traditional saunas provide these benefits, although the conditions under which the benefits are achieved are quite different.
If you prefer lower temperatures but with body-penetrating heat, a far-infrared sauna may be your best choice. In a far-infrared sauna, the heat waves penetrate the body to effectively heat the body and raise the body core temperature. To achieve this increased temperature, far-infrared emitters create infrared energy which is close to the same wavelength as that which the body naturally emits, so the energy is well received by the body. The infrared energy deeply penetrates the skin and warms the muscles and joints. When the energy enters the body, it causes the body temperature to increase and ultimately results in perspiration.
In a traditional sauna, perspiration is achieved when the bather enters a heated room. When a traditional sauna has been properly heated, the sauna walls are warm, the air temperature has reached a set temperature and the rocks are super heated, creating an "enveloping heat”. The process for heating the room most often involves an electric heater that heats a compartment of stones, which then radiates the heat throughout the room.
