Infrared energy is a natural, therapeutic property of the sun and its technology has been utilized for almost half a century. It has proven to be a safe and effective way to promote optimal health, as it is currently used in maternity wards to warm newborn babies.
Our sauna captures the feel good energy that the sun provides. The energy penetrates deep into the tissue, warming and healing you from the inside out. Furthermore, the body absorbs this radiant heat, allowing for agitation of water molecules deep within our fat tissue, and encouraging a release of toxins from the body.
What is the difference between a traditional and an infrared sauna?
In a traditional sauna, your body is subjected to significantly higher temperatures (185-230 F) as its technology focuses on heating the air then the body; inducing a sweat response. Infrared technology focuses on heating the body directly through energy absorption, which stimulates and opens detoxification pathways. It induces a powerful sweat reaction as a response to heating your core. Although infrared works on a lower temperature (90-145 F), it allows for a more comfortable but effective environment for guests with chronic conditions, including those with respiratory, and cardiovascular problems. With the use of a traditional sauna you will release 97% water and 3% toxins. However, utilizing an infrared sauna you will release 80% water and 20% toxins through perspiration.
