Enter Far Infrared
Far Infrared radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than light that cannot be seen by the naked eye. The radiation hits the surface of the body and heats through a process called conversion; this radiant heat is the same as the heat from the Sun. An example of this is to consider walking down a street in warm sunshine and then entering the shade of a tree, you can feel the temperature change immediately, this is because the tree is absorbing the infrared rays from the sun.
Is an Infrared Sauna Safe to use?
Yes, because it is the same as the natural heat from the Sun there are no adverse effects, in fact unlike sunlight a Far Infrared heater panel does not emit harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays. In some Hospitals, newborn babies are kept warm by using Infrared heat. If you have any doubts or you are receiving medical treatment always consult with your Health Professional before using the Sauna.
What is the difference between an Infrared Sauna and Hot Rock (Steam) Sauna?
In a Steam Sauna heat is first created by a method of heating stones to a high temperature, then water is poured on the stones to create Steam. The Steam then heats the air which consequently heats the body. Typical temperatures in a Steam Sauna are 170 to 190 Degrees Celsius and can be uncomfortable over a period of time. Infrared radiant heat heats the body directly and operate at lower temperatures, typically 110 to 130 Degrees Celsius, which is more comfortable, uses less power to heat, and allows you to stay longer and sweat more.
