Infrared light is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for Infrared Saunas. Infrared rays are the healthiest, penetrate in to your skin deeply and they dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body. The infrared sauna uses light to create heat. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, typically at temperatures between 180-220F, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming air around you, maintaining a temperature no greater than 150F.
Since Infrared Sauna Therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins including heavy metals like mercury, lead, and environmental chemicals. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction and weight loss, burning up to 600 calories in one 40 minute session
