Infrared Sauna therapy works by emitting a wavelength of red spectrum waves (far infra red rays or FIR) which are beneficial to the human body. Their safety is undisputed – even doctors in hospitals use them to warm newborn babies. FIR are naturally occurring light waves that we receive from the beneficial portion of sunlight. However infrared rays are the safer, penetrate into your skin deeply and dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body as well as vitalizing your cells and metabolism.
WHY IS INFRARED HEAT BETTER THAN A TRADITIONAL SAUNA?
Unlike other saunas, infrared saunas operate a temperature of 90-145 F compared to a traditional sauna that operates at 185-230 F and without water or additional humidity.
The lower, yet more concentrated temperature, increases the body’s temperature internally and more quickly than merely sitting in a hot environment, coupled with the far infra red wavelength of light that is emitted, creates a comfortable environment so you can breathe easily at longer durations, helping the body’s thermal system detoxify and allowing you to experience potential deep therapeutic healing benefits (listed below) of far infrared sauna technology.
