Far Infrared (FIR) light and heating devices include, but are not limited to heat lamp-like units for
treating localized areas, mats, blankets, clothing, and full body saunas plus non-heating LED and Cold Laser therapy devices. Some of the benefits of far infrared heat and light therapy are:
Safe, Effective, and Gentle
Far-Infrared heat is a form
of naturally occurring energy that directly heats objects by gentle infrared radiation heat, rather than by raising the temperature of the surrounding air. FIR heat is completely safe for the human body. Physical
therapists often use FIR heat to promote healing and hospitals use the same heat in incubators to keep premature babies warm.
The FIR waves are tuned to provide high absorption by the human body (as much as 93%) and deep penetration of the
skin. This produces 2-3 times more perspiration than conventional saunas, which heat the skin indirectly through the air.
FIR heat provides all the health benefits of natural sunlight without harmful side effects of solar radiation, such
as ultraviolet rays associated with suntans and skin cancer.
Burns Calories, Controls Weight, & Reduces Cellulite!
As you relax in the gentle
heat of our sauna, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, in a single sauna session you may burn as
many calories as you would when swimming or jogging for 60 minutes. Far Infrared heat penetrates below the skin and help breaks down the fat and water particles trapped in pockets beneath the skin. This helps to rid
your body of unwanted fat and cellulite, so you are not only losing water but also losing weight!
An infrared sauna burns 600 - 800 calories in just
one 30-minute session. Here are how many calories a 150-pound person normally burns in 30 minutes of exercise:
Relieves Pain & Joint Stiffness!
Far Infrared heat
relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing blood circulation. Better circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, and helps reduce pain and
speed up the healing process. Recent health and medical studies name FIR heat as a successful treatment for arthritis, rheumatism, sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other
muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches, and soreness that come with aging are reduced or eliminated.
Removes Toxins & Wastes!
In one study performed by
American researchers, the sweat of people using a conventional sauna was found to be 95-97% water while the sweat of those using a far infrared sauna was 80-85% water, with the non-water portion principally
cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, copper, nickel, etc.) sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia, and uric acid. This unusually high concentration of heavy metals and other fat-soluble toxins
is not found in the sweat from normal exercise. FIR treatment has been successfully used in the treatment of clogged capillaries in China, Europe and Japan. It is recommended by doctors in the US to reduce and
maintain low toxin levels for post cancer surgery patients.
Improves Skin Condition, Enhances Skin Tone!
penetrate into the deep layers of the skin, stimulating metabolism. Large water molecules containing toxins are broken down by vibration induced by the FIR waves. The deep perspiration (not achievable in a
conventional sauna) removes these deeply embedded impurities and toxins.
The skin tissues can begin to produce new cells to replace old or dead skin cells. Increased blood circulation and deep cleansing of impurities improves skin tone and elasticity, leaving the skin glowing and youthful. Research reports improvements in acne, rashes, burns, eczema, psoriasis, skin lesions and cuts
Reduces Stress & Fatigue!
Perhaps the most immediate
relief the Quality Sauna far infrared sauna offers is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stresses and anxiety of modern life. Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of our infrared sauna gives you an overall
comforting effect, soothing strained nerves and knotted muscles. You'll feel revitalized and refreshed in both body and mind.
Cardiovascular Fitness. Improves Blood Circulation & Strengthens Cardiovascular System!
As the body produces more sweat and works to cool itself, heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, providing the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise.
Due to the dilated blood vessel, the blood pressure drops, thus boosting overall cardiovascular fitness. This cardiovascular workout is burning calories.
The increased flow of oxygen rich blood circulating through the body will increase the
health of the body's major organs and speed the body's natural repair and regeneration process.
"Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build
big leg muscles. Regular use of Sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effect, a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise."
Boosts Metabolism and Improves the Immune System!
Medical research demonstrates that exposure to infrared heat can produce excellent therapeutic effects. The deep penetrating heat induces an artificial fever, as the body naturally counters the
fever your immune system is strengthened. The improved immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth, boosts metabolism and your overall health, thereby increasing resistance to disease. Recent
studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with infrared heat therapy.
