Benefits of Infrared sauna Therapy
- Weight Loss
- Cardiovascular benefits
- Pain Relief
- Wound Healing
Infrared therapy (IR) offers a wide range of health benefits. Our 3-in-1 IR therapy blends the optimal wavelengths to achieve desired results: near (NIR), mid (MIR) and far (FIR). The three IR mechanisms within the heaters operate independently, so you can program them to generate any combination of NIR, MIR, and FIR range IR wavelengths. This allows us to optimize the IR power, output, and intensity based on your specific needs during each session. We can accomplish specific benefits, or a combination of health benefits, in order to help you with a variety of health concerns.
Near, Mid and Far Infrared
Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength. Some research shows that when delivered at a vital wavelength, without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. Light emitting diodes are effective because they can trigger a natural photo-biochemical reaction, similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue. When the wave is pulsed, it can travel deeper into tissues.
Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that allows deeper penetration into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs, and speeds up the healing process.
The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches the deepest into the body, where toxins are stored.
Infrared Therapy Experience
Infrared light is a part of the sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. IR heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than air, like a sauna. Unlike sunbathing, infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in an infrared sauna and it will not cause harm to your skin. Infrared therapy can increase the body’s core temperature, resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed.
Infrared heat therapy has also been shown to assist with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and skin rejuvenation. Conventional hot rock/steam saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes the air difficult to breathe. An infrared sauna uses soothing dry infrared heat that is well ventilated while being extremely comfortable and relaxing.
Cardiovascular Health, Diabetes and Cancer Cell Reduction
Infrared heat therapy promotes cardiovascular conditioning in a manner similar to that of aerobic activity with minimal exertion. Numerous studies have shown that the cardiovascular benefits associated with infrared therapy are numerous and varied. They include improved circulation, lower blood pressure, enhanced vascular function and lower risk of heart-related disease.
Infrared therapy has been proven to help regulate sugar levels in type II diabetic patients.
For cancer specifically, infrared treatments can be promising because of the selective toxicity they have on cancer cells. In a nutshell, the hyperthermic effects of infrared radiation are only harmful to malignant cells. Some studies suggest that IR therapy can reduces cancer cells by up 86 percent – even at low-temperature IR exposures of as little as 77 degrees!
