FAQ

How does this sauna work?
Our smart sauna produces near, mid and far infrared. The wavelength will penetrate 3 to 4 deep inches deep into your body tissue. The wavelength will stimulate and activate your water molecules to vibrate.

In addition, the wavelengths also helps dilates blood vessels for better blood flow.
