Far Infrared Sauna
What is Infrared Heat?
Infrared heat, also known as radiant heat, is a natural, safe energy that heats objects directly without having to heat the air in between. This band of light is not visible to human eyes but can be seen with special cameras. We can, however, feel this type of energy, which we perceive as a gentle heat. For example, infrared heaters are used by hospitals to warm premature infants.
Infrared Sauna vs. Conventional Hot Air Sauna
Many people find the high temperatures inside a regular sauna or steam room intolerable. In these traditional systems, the inside of the body is heated completely from the surface of the skin using very high heat. However, infrared saunas heat the body gently using the penetrating radiant heat and operate at a significantly cooler and comfortable air temperature range of 110 to 130F (versus 180 to 235F in a conventional sauna). Research has shown that infrared saunas are able to produce a more powerful detoxification effect for the removal of acid waste, fat-soluble toxins and heavy metals.
WEIGHT LOSS . . . In the infrared saunas your heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase to improve your overall cardiovascular fitness. You can burn 600 or more calories in just one 30 minute session. You lose weight – not just water.
DETOXIFICATION . . . Take the detoxifying load off your liver and kidneys by the direct elimination of toxins through the skin. Two to three times more sweat is produced in the infrared sauna than is possible in conventional hot air saunas. Greater removal of toxins such as acid waste, fat-soluble toxic residue and heavy metals is achieved, including lead, mercury, aluminum and cadmium.
PAIN RELIEF . . . This deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. It is also widely used to treat people with arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain conditions.
STRESS REDUCTION . . . Infrared sauna therapy is remarkably relaxing, helping people to relieve stress and feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
BOOSTS IMMUNE RESPONSE . . . This radiant therapy may shorten your recovery time from colds and flu and improve the immune response. It is reported to stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes.
IMPROVES SKIN . . . The profuse sweating achieved in infrared saunas carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Skin tone and elasticity are improved. It has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis and also removes roughness.
CLEARS CELLULITE . . . Infrared sauna treatments help clear cellulite, the gel-like lumps of fat, water and debris trapped in pockets beneath the skin. European beauty specialists routinely incorporate daily saunas in programs to reduce cellulite.
ENHANCES ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE . . . Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion. Top athletes are using infrared sauna to warm their muscles before and after working out to prevent injuries and promote relaxation.
IMPROVES CIRCULATION . . . As circulation is fundamental for health and healing, infrared sauna therapy benefits those with diabetes, rheumatism, cardiovascular disease and other chronic disease states.
