What Exactly is an Infrared Sauna? Why they’re so great?
The light from the infrared sauna penetrates deep into the skin and release accumulated harmful substances from the cells. The cells are vitalized and the metabolism is stimulated. Far infrared radiation therapy uses the wavelengths of the visible and invisible light spectrum of the sun, which have the ability to warm up the body. Since the infrared waves penetrate deep into the body and can quickly increase the core body temperature, the body activates sweat glands after a short time.
The sweat glands perform an important function: they are one of the few mechanisms the body has to get rid of toxins. And since the skin is the largest organ of the human body, this is an indispensable, direct way to rid the body of unwanted, disease-causing substances. When far-infrared waves are directed at water molecules - which make up 70% of our bodies - these molecules start to begin to vibrate. The vibration dissolves the ionic compounds and finally leads to the splitting of the water molecules. This releases trapped gases and other toxic toxic substances are released.
Far-infrared heat is completely safe because the heaters produce only infrared and not the full spectrum of radiation from the sun. Even hospitals use it to keep newborns warm.
How does an infrared sauna work?
An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses infrared light waves to create an environment that is similar to the temperature of the human body.
The heat from the infrared light is absorbed by the body and used to heat it up. The waves are not visible, but they can be felt as warmth on your skin. The warmth from an infrared sauna can be felt from about 3 feet away and can reach temperatures of up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 degrees Celsius).It is considered as the most effective type of sauna because it penetrates deep into the body and heats up all the tissues.
In an infrared sauna, a person sits down on a bench while they are absorbing the light. The heat from the lamps then travels through their skin and heats them up. This process can take anywhere between 5 to 15 minutes depending on how hot you want it to be.
Infrared Saunas vs Traditional Saunas
Traditional saunas heat the air in the cabin to make the body sweat. The room can get from 70 - 105°C hot, which can be a stressful experience for some people. Infrared saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air in the enclosed cabin, the infrared radiation heats the body directly from the inside out. The infrared rays penetrate deep into the skin, creating a warm and comfortable feeling. The heat stimulates the cardiovascular system, the immune system and the lymphatic system. The body's natural response to this is - to sweat. In our Clearlight infrared cabins, only 20% of the power is used to heat the air, 80% of the radiant heat is delivered to the body. The result is deeper, more effective therapy.
Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas
Infrared saunas have been used for centuries to detoxify the body and relieve inflammation. The heat from the infrared light penetrates the skin deeper than a traditional sauna, which in turn produces more sweat. This process helps remove toxins from your body through your sweat glands and provides relief from pain, inflammation and sore muscles.
When you use an infrared sauna, the heat from the infrared light penetrates deep into your body, warming up the muscles and tissues. This has a relaxing effect on your parasympathethic nervous system - which is responsible for regulating muscle tension, digestion and other body functions.
Using an infrared sauna frequently, you can experience long term health benefits such as weight loss, improved sleep, and detoxification with infrared saunas. Infrared sauna therapy is also used for healing ailments such as arthritis and chronic fatigue syndrome.
