Is Infrared heat safe?
Yes! Infrared light energy is beneficial and not at all damaging to the body. Infrared has been researched and used in medical practices for many years. Many maternity wards in hospitals use infrared lamps to warm newborn babies. Sports medicine has long accepted and used infrared to promote healing of sprains and strains. NASA has also concluded after lengthy trails in the 1980's that infrared therapy is the best way for astronauts to maintain cardiovascular fitness on long cramped space flights.
Why do you sweat up to three times more in a infrared sauna when it is less than half the temperature of a traditional
saunas or steam room?
Because infrared is a radiant source of heat. This means it warms our body directly, rather than having to warm the air first similar to the sun warming our body on a cold winter's day.
This is a major difference between an Infrared sauna and a traditional sauna. There is no need for very hot air that can cause respiratory problems and dizziness. Infrared only expends 20% of its energy on heating the air - 80% directly warms the body.
This deep penetration of warming radiant heat produces up to three times more perspiration and therefore stimulates the deeper tissues and organ to release stored fat and toxins. The beneficial resonant absorption and the low temperature allow for easier removal of toxins and fat within the perspiration, leaving the user feeling cleansed and detoxed.
Why does the Infrared Sauna remove up to six times more stored fat and toxins from your body?
This is due to the radiant heat stimulating the deep tissues and organs to release stored fat and accumulated toxins.
Scientific studies show that a 30 minute session in an infrared sauna can assist in the loss of toxins and stored fats by up to six times the level of a traditional sauna.
How often can I use an Infrared Sauna?
As with any form of exercise, it is important to build up a tolerance. Use a lower temperature for about 15 minutes, initially 3 times. Once conditioned, many people enjoy daily sessions of up to 30 minutes.
Who can use an Infrared Sauna?
With just a few exceptions, this is a safe and enjoyable treatment for people of all ages. Although, anyone with specific health conditions should consult their physician before using an Infrared sauna.
Haemophiliacs and pregnant women or those who think they may be pregnant are strongly advised not to use any form of heat treatment, including an infrared saunas.
