Why Infrared

Why Choose Infrared Saunas?

Far Infrared (FIR) Saunas have been proven to reduce pain in arthritis sufferers as well as muscle aches and have even been found to help with weight loss. All life needs energy, and the sun is the primary source of this energy. Infrared rays are just one part of the rays that make up the sun’s spectrum; they are the rays that actually warm your body when you are out in the sun.

Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation. FIR heat actually penetrates and warms the body, so the heat energy is not lost trying to warm the air. FIR heat is not ultraviolet radiation, but a narrow band of energy within the 5.6 to 15 micron level.

This type of energy travels 1½ – 2” deep into the body, increasing circulation and nourishing damaged tissue. The FIR heat emitted by far-Infrared energy treatment devices, such as, the is a naturally occurring energy that heats objects by direct light conversion (DLC).This natural heat increases body temperature, which in turn stimulates and improves the immune system.

The FIR heat emitted in the sauna may induce two to three times the sweat volume of conventional saunas, and they operate at a much cooler air temperature range. Many individuals who cannot tolerate a conventional sauna, steam room or sweat lodge will find pleasant.

The lower heat range is also safer for those with cardiovascular risk factors or fragile health. The Far-Infrared energy device we recommend uses the same heat therapy technology used in sports medicine to treat athletic injuries. Hospitals use FIR heat to keep newborn infants warm and health professionals have used red infrared heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems.
