Hot Sand Sauna Room – Infrared Sauna Benefits

Hot Sand Sauna Room. You’ve heard of the Hot Sand Room, Bend’s newest secret pastime. But what are the benefits, and how is it different from a conventional sauna? We’re happy to break down the room, the benefits, the far infrared heat, and how you can try it out for yourself below.

A conventional sauna is heating the air around you, to a temperature of 170°-200°F. That’s why breathing in a sauna can be sharp since the air is so hot. Infrared heat is different: it heats objects, not the air. That alone makes it a more efficient, productive heating system that is relaxing and therapeutic.

Far Infrared

Far infrared waves penetrate into our body to activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands offer one of only a few mechanisms that the body has to eliminate toxins and since the skin is the largest organ in the human body it is apparently a very good means for elimination. When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules (comprising 70% of our body) these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gasses and other toxic materials to be released.


The top Eight benefits of an infrared hot sand sauna room are:

  1. Muscle pain relief
  2. Immune system boost
  3. Detoxification
  4. Easing joint pain and stiffness
  5. Stress and fatigue reduction
  6. Improves skin
