Far Infrared Sauna Therapy

Far infrared waves penetrate deep into our body for a deep heating action which allows for the body to activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands are one of only a few mechanisms that the body has to naturally eliminate toxins. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and provides a great medium for elimination.

The far infrared rays consist of similar wavelengths as that which is emitted naturally by the human body. This is one potential explanation of why many feel energetically rejuvenated and balanced from contact with far infrared waves. By stimulating areas of the body underneath the skin, far infrared waves help improve blood circulation and recovery from fatigue.

Infrared Saunas use Far Infrared energy to penetrate the body's tissue. Tests have shown that the energy output is tuned so closely to the body's own radiant energy that our bodies absorb as much as 93% of the far infrared waves that reach our skin. By comparison, conventional saunas must rely only on indirect means of heat: first, on convection (air currents) and then, conduction (direct contact of hot air with the skin) to produce its heating effect.

Due to this penetration, our fat cells specifically become activated and release toxins they hold onto; toxins such as BPA, heavy metals and other fat soluble toxins. Sweat created by indirect means (such as a normal dry sauna or steam room), usually contains about 97% water, whereas a far-infrared sauna usually stimulates sweat that contains only 80% water and the rest contains these toxins--making it a much more effective means of detox.

Infrared rays are bands of light that are unseen to the naked eye. We are only able to perceive them as heat. It is divided into 3 sets of wavelengths - of which, only far infrared can penetrate organic substances, such as the human body. Far infrared is able to penetrate into the body over one and a half inches, safely and effectively warming and detoxing your body. Healing warmth is passed onto muscle tissues and internal organs without giving too much burden to the heart, while stimulating the natural cooling process of perspiration. Through perspiration, we are able to remove acid and waste residue like toxins, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol, and potentially carcinogenic heavy metals. Old skin cells are shed as well, leaving the skin glowing with improved tone, elasticity, texture and color. There are a host of other benefits as well, including cardiovascular conditioning and weight loss.

Infrared rays are completely safe because they are a part of natural spectrum of sunlight. Health professionals have used red infrared heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems. Even in hospitals, incubators are often equipped with infrared heating systems to keep newborns warm.
