What is Infrared Sauna?
- A low temperature sauna to promote relaxation and improve sleep
- What is Infrared?
- Infrared light, as radiated by the Sun, lies between the Visible and Microwave sectors of the electromagnetic spectrum.
- In an infrared sauna, the infrared heater produces radiant energy, which is the same as the heat from the sun, only without the harmful ultraviolet rays. Most of these heaters draw on technology developed in 1965 by Dr. Tadashi Ishikawa, a member of the Research and Development Department of Fuji Medical.
- The experience of a Far Infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. The Far Infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Unlike sunbathing, Infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in a Far Infrared sauna 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 appeal of saunas in general is that they cause reactions, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate, similar to those elicited by moderate exercise. An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than does a regular sauna, which makes it accessible to people who can't tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna.
Does it have health benefits
- Several studies have looked at using infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis, and found some evidence of benefit. However, larger and more-rigorous studies are needed to confirm these results.
- On the other hand, no adverse effects have been reported with infrared saunas. So, if you're considering trying a sauna for relaxation, an infrared sauna might be an option.
