CLAIM THREE: Saunas can achieve long-term weight loss. MOSTLY TRUE. Now, this is not to say you should jump in the sauna and expect to come out 10 pounds lighter any time soon. But, if you are serious about weight loss, plan on improving your diet and spending a little more time moving around, then adding sauna usage to the mix will benefit you.
Infrared saunas (like those sold by Sauna Zen) rely on beneficial infrared rays to warm the skin directly, rather than superheating the air. This provides an even more comfortable and relaxing sauna experience, and infrared rays provide even more health benefits than traditional saunas.
