Infrared Technology

WHAT IS INFRARED TECHNOLOGY?

Remember the last time you were sunbathing with sunscreen? Were you still hot? Of course you were because the sunscreen only blocks portions of the UV (ultraviolet) light from hitting your skin. The far infrared light heat (from the sun) penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. It is not to be confused, however, with ultraviolet light (UV), which causes sunburn and damage to your skin.

Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum. One of far infrared light’s characteristics is the ability to easily penetrate human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. You can be exposed to far infrared heat for hours and it won’t cause your skin to burn. In appropriate doses far infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, it is so safe that it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
All humans send and receive far infrared waves on a daily basis. The range of waves generated by the human body is 6 to 20 microns. The optimal micron output range is between 7 and 14 microns which is very close to the resonant frequency of a water molecule. This similarity makes sense since our bodies are almost 70% water. This range, sometimes referred to as “Vital Rays” appears to have special regenerative effects on the body. When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gases and other toxic materials to be released.
 
Far infrared saunas have been shown to assist in weight loss, pain management, skin purification, detoxification and stress reduction.
Far infrared saunas can also provide relief to patients suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and certain skin conditions. The far infrared sauna therapy used heats the body and penetrates deeply into joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.

TRADITIONAL SAUNA VS. INFRARED SAUNA

WHY DO I NEED TO GO TO AN INFRARED SAUNA STUDIO WHEN I CAN JUST USE THE SAUNA AT THE GYM?

There are many reasons that an infrared sauna can be more beneficial for you compared to regular saunas, the main reason being that it is 7x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna. Unlike regular saunas infrared saunas also help assist with pain relief, weight loss, lowering blood pressure, skin rejuvenation, and improved circulation.

  • The experience of an infrared sauna is similar to sun bathing, except that you control the level of radiant heat resulting in your optimal comfort.
  • Infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature, thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where many toxins are stored.
  • Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate human tissue.
  • Conventional hot rock/steam heat saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes air difficult to breathe.
  • Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air.
  • An infrared sauna uses soothing, dry infrared heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing.An infrared sauna uses soothing, dry infrared heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing.
  • Unlike sunbathing, infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in an infrared sauna and it will not cause your skin to burn.
  • Infrared heat therapy has also been shown to help with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and skin rejuvination.
