WHAT IS FAR INFRARED?
Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these far infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air.
The experience of a far infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. The far infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Unlike sunbathing, Infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in a far infrared sauna and it will never cause
your skin to burn.
Far infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. Conventional hot rock/steam heat saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes the air diffifi cult to breath. A far infrared sauna uses soothing dry far infrared heat
that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing. Far infrared heat therapy has also been proven to assist with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and skin rejuvenation.
SAFETY OF FAR INFRARED
You can be exposed to far infrared heat for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. Far infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, far infrared heat is so safe it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants. The same electrical standards required for the safety of your home are implemented into the electrical system of our saunas. Steel conduits protect your sauna from fifi re hazard and harmful electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation.
Far infrared waves, reflected from the Sunlight Sauna to the body, provide concentrated radiant energy, similar to that from the sun. When any tissue in the body is exposed to far infrared waves, whether radiated by sunlight, reflected by specially coated fabrics or panels, there is a rapid increase in warmth which can be shown by thermography. This heat plus the activation of several other response mechanisms stimulates the healing processes.
For example, far infrared waves from Sunlight Saunas:
1. Increase blood flow by promoting dilation (expansion) of the micro-circulatory system of capillaries.
2. Reduce muscle spasms as muscle fibers are heated.
3. Remove toxins from the site receiving far infrared waves.
4. Assist in the reduction of swelling and inflammation by improving lymph flow.
5. Reduce soreness through direct action on both free nerve endings in
tissues and on peripheral nerves.
WIEN’S LAW OF DISPLACEMENT
Solocarbon heaters do not use wires to conduct far infrared heat. We apply the perfect thickness of ultraconductive carbon to a berglass panel activated by positive and negative copper strips on either side. Then the panel of berglass and carbon are sealed by lamination. This means Solocarbon heaters have NO UNHEALTHY GASES released during heating!
Solocarbon® Heaters have been tested for safety.
INCREASES CORE BODY TEMPERATURE
Increasing the core body temperature is critical in achieving superior detoxi cation results. Solocarbon® heaters were tested and shown to consistently increase core temperature by a 3 degrees Fahrenheit rise in core temperature and increase heart rate over a 60 minute session (30 minute heat up and 30 minute cool down cycle)
Detox from a Sunlight Sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Sunlight Sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!
Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with far infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain, all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.
A 30 minute far infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! As the body works to cool itself while using a far infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Sunlight Saunas far infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to far infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you will be amazed!
LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE
Sunlight Saunas Solocarbon heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 and were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute sauna session three times a week. Repeated Sunlight Saunas far infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.
Heating of muscles with far infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.
Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of a Sunlight Sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Far infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly.
