One of the most asked questions I receive involves the heating units available for all the Far Infrared saunas on the market. Most of the saunas out there are perfectly fine however, why not purchase the best and the safest. Sometimes I think we forget about the amazing details that truly make the benefits of Far Infrared sauna therapy so favorable. Occasionally it is good to revisit why Far Infrared and why using the combination carbon and ceramic heaters makes such a difference in the end goal of all sauna therapy – improving and maintaining robust health. It really is all in the rays produced by Far Infrared saunas.
Infrared rays are natural, comfortable and identical to our own sun’s rays. Infrared rays are the healthiest, as they penetrate into your skin deeply and dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body. Infrared rays from a Far Infrared sauna, like from our sun, vitalize your cells and metabolism. Combining both the carbon and ceramic heating units is by far the best.
The type of Far Infrared heaters I use are dual; both carbon and ceramic. They produce very low EMF, a gentle and very comfortable, warm heat and allow for so many healthy benefits. Remember, this is the same type of heat produced by the sun and our bodies. Infrared heat is very safe and not at all like the heat produced by microwaves. In a Far Infrared sauna, only twenty percent of the energy is used to heat the air, leaving the rest of the energy to heat the body. This radiant heat can penetrate deep below the skin producing a gentle warming inside the body. The temperature inside a Far Infrared sauna is adjustable and averages around a comfortable temperature of 100 °F to 140 °F. This allows a person to sweat more quickly and to tolerate a longer period of time inside the sauna, enabling the many therapeutic effects to occur. Typical sessions last twenty to forty five minutes. The heat from my Far Infrared sauna leaves me feeling invigorated, not depleted, as I once did when using a conventional steam sauna.
The dual Far Infrared heaters warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. Far Infrared therapy uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally. Traditional saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level, within the chamber, to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in the extremely warm air from a steam sauna. Far Infrared saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, Far Infrared saunas heat the body directly. The result is deeper tissue penetration. In the Far Infrared sauna, the body perspires and receives all of its healthy benefits, while avoiding the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna.
It really is all about the healing rays, emanating from combining both carbon and ceramic heaters in a Far Infrared sauna, that differentiate the traditional from the Far Infrared sauna experience. Far Infrared Heat Therapy has been shown to work on people of all backgrounds. The range of benefits from this effective form of heat therapy can be felt regardless of skin type, physical disabilities or limitations and athletic condition. Simply use a Far Infrared sauna daily and then you truly will enjoy the benefits of a healthier lifestyle.
