How does the Far Infrared Sauna work?

Far infra red rays or FIR are completely safe and beneficial to the human body. They are so safe that doctors use them in hospitals to warm newborn babies. FIR are naturally occurring and are the beneficial portion of sunlight that we can receive. Infrared heaters in the sauna operate the same way as natural sunlight but without the harmful side effects of solar radiation.

The heat from an infrared sauna safely and comfortably penetrates up to 2” deep into the body, even your organs and deep tissues are stimulated. This induces sweating 2-3 times as much as a conventional sauna at a lower temperature. The effects are to increase circulation, nourish damaged tissues, pull chemicals and the build-up toxins from fat storage directly into our sweat, and improve your vitality.

How long is each sauna session?

Normally, a sauna session is schedule for 45 minutes.

Daily saunas generate the best affect over a period of time. However, 1-2 sessions per week may be more practical for most people and produces great results.

Sometimes I have trouble breathing when it is warm, is far infrared sauna a good idea?

Infrared saunas differ from traditional saunas because they operate at a temperature of 90-145 F compared to a traditional sauna that operates at 185-230 F. This allows you to be able to breathe comfortably and enjoy the benefits for extended periods of time. In addition, you can also control and turn down the temperature from inside the sauna.
