What is Infrared?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits minus the UV’S. Because infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air like a traditional sauna, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside.
Infrared saunas have been featured on The Oprah Show with Dr. Oz, The Doctors, and Ellen.
The benefits of the Infrared sauna have also been referenced in studies conducted by Kagoshima University in Japan and the results sited in Harvard Health Publications as well as by The Mayo Clinic.
Infrared heat therapy uses infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. Infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. As a result, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
Indian Lake Medical uses PRIVATE Sunlighten Infrared Sauna’s with Solocarbon® heating technology. These saunas emit clinically-tested far infrared heat through heaters located on the floor, front, back and side wall panels for maximum heat circulation.
Heat from far infrared saunas have the ability increase the body’s core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. Conventional hot rock/steam head saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes the air difficult to breath. A far infrared sauna uses soothing dry far infrared heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing. Far infrared heat therapy has also been proven to assist with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and skin rejuvenation.
Detoxification– Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal, stay healthy and detoxify. In a Sunlighten Sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% of water, while in a conventional sauna, the average person only sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water.
Weight Loss, Increase Metabolism & Burn Calories. Studies show that a 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, all of which cause the body to burn more calories.
Relaxation– Sunlighten Saunas deliver the ultimate experience in relaxation. With the most therapeutic infrared heat found in Solocarbor heating technology, our saunas are guaranteed to help you relax in comfort with an invigorating sweat that have you feeling stress-free with each session.
Blood Pressure Reduction– Sunlighten’s Solocarbon heaters were shown in a clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute infrared sauna session three times per week.
Detoxification. Infrared saunas heat the body at the cellular level and help detoxify the body by getting rid of highly toxic metals, such as mercury and lead, arsenic, as well as sulfuric acid and other organic and inorganic compounds.
Anti-aging & Skin Purification. The profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in the infrared sauna carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and clean. Further, increased blood circulation has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts.
Relaxation & Stress Relief. While traditional saunas operate at extremely high temperatures in order to heat the air, the infrared saunas heat the individual directly and therefore feel gentle, soothing and therapeutic. One session at Infrasweat will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed.
Pain Relief. Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles. Studies show, it can help relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia. Increased blood circulation also helps carry off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to depleted muscles to aid in recovery.
Heart Health. Infrared saunas cause a deep sweat which makes the heart pump faster, in turn increasing blood flow, lowering blood pressure and helping circulation. Scientific evidence, in fact, shows that using one of Infrasweat’s featured saunas two or more times a week lowers blood pressure.
Far infrared waves, reflected from the Sunlighten Sauna to the body, provide concentrated radiant energy, similar to that from the sun. When any tissue in the body is exposed to far infrared waves, whether radiated by sunlight, reflected by specially coated fabrics or panels, there is a rapid increase in warmth which can be shown by thermography. This heat plus the activation of several other response mechanisms stimulates the healing processes.
SAFETY OF FAR INFRARED
You can be exposed to far infrared heat and it will never cause your skin to burn. Far infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, far infrared heat is so safe it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants. The same electrical standards required for the safety of your home are implemented into the electrical system of our saunas. Steel conduits protect your sauna from fire hazard and harmful electromagnetic field radiation.
