If I were a medical doctor, I’d write prescriptions for home saunas. The medical benefits of spending a few minutes per week in high radiant heat are established and recognized by the medical community.
Saunas have been used by healthy cultures for thousands of years. Only recently however, have they become so affordable and accessible to health clubs, spa resorts and homeowners!
Saunas today are cheaper and easier to install than ever before. Installation takes only 30 minutes and a screwdriver, making these house sauna kits portable.
Costs for home sauna rooms have plummeted in recent years, due to greater demand, but also due to Far Infrared technologies coming down in price.
Far Infrared Technology? Yes, sounds spacey, but it is the most efficient way to heat a home sauna, and is what I am really interested in talking about today. Infrared sauna technology is simply fascinating!
Infrared is a portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, and Far-Infrared is a wavelength region within the infrared range. The wavelengths of far infrared are longer and of lower energy than near or mid-range infrared, for instance, those used in outdoor infrared heaters.
Infrared Saunas use ceramic rods or carbon fibers to distribute the heat that is generated electrically, from a 110V plug. The elements are heated and reflected in several areas around the interior, facing the seating areas of the sauna. Far Infrared Saunas heat fast, in just 5-10 minutes.
Far infrared rays shouldn’t be confused with ultra-violet rays, microwave rays, gamma rays or anything else. Completely safe to use, far infrared have longer wavelengths, and penetrate the skin quickly, activating your skin’s moisture and perspiration glands. Naturally, like the sun.
With the dry heat created in an infrared sauna, you won’t have concerns of mold or mildew, or having to clean steamy sauna glass. Steam saunas can easily become dangerously overheated, reaching temperatures of 190°. So hot that the surfaces become too hot to touch. Infrared sauna surfaces stay warm, but don’t become hot, due to the lower and slower wavelengths directed at the sauna seating areas.
Traditional “Hot Rock” home saunas heat the air, but far infrared saunas heat the users with a deeper resonant heat. Infrared saunas won’t feel as hot and humid as traditional steam saunas – and the air is not hot, heavy and hard to breathe. Our far infrared saunas actually have cross ventilation – breezy.
Even though it’s a “dry heat” you will feel the heat. In front of you, behind you and below the benches. Be sure to take a bottle of water in with you, because in 10-15 minutes, you’ll have perspired at least that amount, cleansing your pores and skin of dirt, oil and toxins.
Benefits of a Far Infrared Sauna:
- Cleanses the body and your skin pores.
- Burns calories and removes excess water weight.
- Increased oxygenation of the blood.
- Relief from sore joints and muscle pain.
- Relaxing and Restful. Breathe.
