As soon as you take a seat or lie down in one of our IR saunas, FAR infrared waves begin to penetrate 2 to 3 inches into your body. These waves create a deep heating action, which activates the sweat glands. Sweat glands function in our body to naturally eliminate and expel waste materials and toxins. Since skin is the largest organ in the human body, the deep heating of the sweat glands allow for a deep detoxifying sweat.
The human body is comprised of 70% water molecules. FAR infrared waves cause these molecules to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and breaks down the water molecules. These molecules often encapsulate gases and other toxic materials.
Far infrared rays have a wavelength of 8-14 microns. These waves are especially good for the human body and directly cause the deep heat and the raising of an individuals core temperature from deep inside. This allows for improved blood circulation as well as recovery from fatigue. These rays consist of similar wavelengths as that which is emitted naturally by the human body. This is one reason as to why many individuals feel rejuvenated after an IR sauna session.
Today, many healthcare professionals use far infrared heaters to treat a variety of diseases throughout the world.
