Far-Infrared Sauna Spa Detox Session
What is Far-Infrared Sauna Spa Detox Therapy?
Infrared heat is very gentle. The experience is similar to lying in the sun on a warm day and feeling the heat radiate to the core of your body. Unlike traditional (hot rock or steam) saunas, which operate at well in excess of 200°F, infrared heat has the benefit of being effective at a more comfortable operating temperature of 100°-150°F.
Traditional saunas heat the air, which can be a more uncomfortable way to induce sweating. Infrared saunas heat the body directly. Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue rather than just simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins versus only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
The infrared spectrum consists of near, mid, and far waves, each with distinct characteristics and frequency ranges. Near infrared promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. Mid infrared is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs. This helps expand blood vessels and increase circulation, so more oxygen can reach injured areas of the body, which reduces pain and speeds the healing process. The longest wavelength, Far infrared, reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. By increasing your core body temperature, FIR stimulates the sweat glands, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat that leaves you feeling revitalized.
A 30 minute sauna raises your body temperature enough to induce a therapeutic sweat. This sweat allows your skin to eliminate toxins that otherwise remain stuck in your tissues and bloodstream. Saunas have been shown to increase the immune system, accelerate cardiovascular activity, stimulate vasodilation for pain relief and healing, and promote relaxation and the feeling of well-being.
Infrared heat travels 2-3″ deep into the body (verses traditional sauna which travels only 1/2″ into the body), allowing the heat to reach a majority of the muscles and tissues, improving circulation and repair to damaged tissue. Ideal for muscular injuries.
Traditional saunas heat the air to warm the body. Infrared saunas works differently, directly warming the body, which results in deeper penetration and more sweat release. During infrared sauna sessions, you burn more calories because it takes energy to produce sweat. The sweat amount is 2-3 times greater then in a tradition saunas during same amount of time, which means toxins and heavy metals are removed much faster and more easily.
Infrared light can help heal acne, scars, blemishes and skin discolorations, as it repairs and tones the tissues.
The air is dry in infrared saunas, which stops the spread of microbes and bacterias, making it far more hygienic.
