FAR Infrared saunas use a much lower heat than traditional saunas. Traditional saunas are usually 180°F and up, while an infrared sauna is usually 120°-130°F. Traditional saunas use such extreme heat because they heat the air. As the temperature of the air increases, the body begins to sweat in order to cool itself. FAR Infrared Saunas use infrared heat to heat the core body temperature. This allows the body to eliminate more toxins through perspiration while maintaining a cooler temperature. Infrared heat primarily warms only objects in its direct path and has a lesser effect on temperature of the surrounding air.
To understand how infrared heat works, picture yourself outdoors on a summer day with the sun beaming overhead. Your body feels warm from the sun and you become hot. Then a cloud passes overhead, blocking out the sun. The temperature outside has not changed, but you feel cooler in the shade. The sun’s infrared rays were heating your body.
Infrared heaters warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. Infrared emitters in the sauna mimic and intensify this effect. FAR infrared heat is not ultraviolet radiation but a narrow band of energy that travels only 2-3″ deep into the body to increase circulation and nourish damaged tissue. Because infrared penetrates safely and comfortably up to 3 inches inside your body, even your deep tissues and organs are stimulated. Hard to reach impurities are eliminated by perspiration through your skin using lower, more comfortable temperatures.
