Few other modalities are as effective when it comes to assisting the body in detoxing heavy metals and clearing a wide spectrum of toxins from the body as the Far Infrared sauna.
Far infrared simulates the sun’s healing rays, and brings you all of the positive attributes and benefits without the harmful UV rays. Far infrared rays penetrate deep into the skin, heating your body from the inside out, fostering a new kind of radiant health, that leaves you glowing---feeling peacefully refreshed and looking beautiful.
Infrared rays penetrate the body creating a deep heating effect in the muscle tissues and internal organs without giving too much burden to our heart. Our body reacts to the increased heating through the natural cooling process of perspiring. Through the perspiration process, acid and waste residue like toxins, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and the potentially carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells. Additionally, the skin sheds any old skin cells, leaving it glowing and immaculately clean, with improved tone, elasticity, texture and color.
The deep penetrating heat also stimulates the heart to send more blood to the body cells to increase blood circulation, which improves many symptoms. Over the last 25 years, Japanese and Chinese researchers and clinicians have completed extensive research on infrared treatments and report many provocative findings. In Japan, there is an “infrared society” composed of medical doctors and physical therapists dedicated to further infrared research. Their findings support the health benefits of infrared therapy as a method of healing.
We use the Health Mate Sauna because it is believed to be the best, most durable sauna in the industry. Plus, it is GREEN! (We love to help the Earth as much as we can!) The Health Mate sauna is made from safe, non-toxic materials. It is the ONLY manufacturer of far infrared saunas with certifications from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). The heaters used are M-type Far Infrared and are proven to be more effective and durable than any other infrared heaters by customers.
Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion.
The infrared is divided into 3 segments by wavelengths, measured in microns; 0.76~1.5 microns-near; 1.5~5.6 microns-middle; 5.6~1000 microns-far infrared. Among these segments, only far infrared penetrates organic substances such as the human body two to three inches so that the warming effect is very uniform.
