HOW IT WORKS
Far Infrared is the natural safe invisible light waves that come from the sun, these light waves are felt as warmth on the body and can penetrate your body up to 2 inches deep. The penetrating light waves cause micro vibrations within sub cutaneous fat cells allowing them to purge the heavy metals and toxins trapped within. This change in heating methodology not only creates a much more comfortable environment over traditional saunas, it also unlocks an abundance of additional health benefits that traditional saunas just can’t match.
The saunas work by using infrared wavelengths of light to heat the body itself, rather than heating the space around it. There are three wavelengths—short, medium, and far, with far being the most intense form: The heat vibrates water molecules in the body so much that they break down. The result, according to supporters, is a healthy release of toxins that you sweat out.
Infrared temperatures range from 110 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit rather than the conventional 160. That’s why an infrared sauna is cozy and dry, not sweltering and musty like a regular health club sauna.
“The appeal of saunas in general is that they cause reactions, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate, similar to those elicited by moderate exercise,” Brent Bauer, the director of the Department of Internal Medicine's complementary and integrative medicine program at the Mayo Clinic, wrote in a Mayo Clinic report. “An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than does a regular sauna, which makes it accessible to people who can't tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna.”
