How do Infrared Saunas Work?

Infrared saunas look and feel much like a traditional sauna, but the space is not heated with electrical elements, fire, or hot rocks. We experience infrared light as a penetrating heat. The infrared heat energy penetrates deeply into the tissues, heating them and breaking down clusters of water molecules, which helps to release toxins.

Sunlight is a combination of the visible light spectrum – we see the seven colors of the rainbow --  and invisible light, both the safe infrared rays on one end, and the dangerous ultraviolet rays on the other end.

Far infrared heat provides the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.

Your capillaries expand in the heat, improving the circulation of the blood. Toxins are then more easily released.

Your body’s metabolism is increased, burning hundreds of calories in a session The tissues are activated to produce needed enzymes.

Fat soluble chemicals are eliminated from the body through the sebaceous and sweat glands.

What is different about infrared heat?
The Infrared Sauna utilizes dry environment and lower temperature than traditional saunas (120° - 150° F vs. 160°-180°). This increases tolerance for longer, deeper heating of the tissues. It promotes profuse perspiration, and provides beneficial metabolic, circulatory, immunological and dermatological effects. Other types of saunas operate at much higher humidities and temperatures, causing more discomfort, circulatory constriction, limited perspiration, and more superficial physiological effects.

Infrared energy has been used by doctors and scientists for decades. There have been thousands of documented studies and there has been no recorded evidence that there are any ill effects of infrared rays. Unlike ultraviolet rays, which can be very damaging to the skin and ultimately cause cancer, infrared rays are completely safe and have numerous beneficial health effects on the human body.

The energy of far infrared rays causes water within the body to vibrate. The human body is mostly made of water, so this has a profound effect on our tissues. Clusters of water are broken up, with toxins dissolved in solution more easily released and filtered out of the body.

UV rays damage the skin, causing premature aging, sunburn and cancer. In contrast, infrared rays are healthy. They penetrate into your skin deeply and dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body. The infrared rays revitalize your cells and metabolism

Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, promoting greater flexibility and range of motion. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that come with aging is reduced or eliminated.
