An infrared sauna is typically constructed with softwood but has 4-7+ electric heating panels surrounding the user(s). The temperature will generally not exceed 135º Fahrenheit and no water is used. Instead, the user positions in front of one or more of the heating panels so that the heat is focused on a specific area(s) of the body. The infrared heat penetrates the body at the point of contact. An infrared “sauna” is not acatually a sauna at all, but a therapy room. It does not use water, does not get exceptionally hot, and does not generate steam.
