First off, unlike traditional saunas, infrared saunas heat your body through infrared heat.
The main thing that sitting in heat affects, whether in a sauna or just outdoors, is your heart rate.
Because the heat is directed towards your body your heart works double time, which is not a bad thing.
Besides the obvious circulatory benefits, there is one benefit that most people swear by: detoxification . Because your body is undergoing high amount of heat, you are obviously going to sweat. Because of the blood flow, your body is relaxing at the same time. The sweat that your body produces while you are in a sustained heat environment like an infrared sauna is full of toxins that your body is just dying to get rid of.
