INFRARED SAUNA THERAPY
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 infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. The experience of an infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. 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 an infrared sauna and it will never cause your skin to burn.
Our 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 and 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 skin. Steam also makes the air difficult to breath. An infrared sauna uses gentle soothing infrared heat that is well ventilated, extremely comfortable, and very relaxing. Infrared heat therapy has also been proven to assist with detoxification, pain relief, weight loss and cellulite removal, lower blood pressure, improved circulation, anti-aging, skin purification and rejuvenation, improved cell health and immunity, wound healing, relaxation, and stress relief.
Safety of Infrared
You can be exposed to infrared heat for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. Infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, infrared heat is so safe it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants. The same electrical standards that are required for the safety of your home are implemented into the electrical systems of our infrared saunas. Steel conduits protect the infrared saunas from fire hazards and harmful electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation. Our saunas u se ultra-low EMF Solocarbon® 3-in-1 Full Spectrum Infrared Heating Technology for ultimate safety and peace of mind. All our sauna heaters are covered with anti-bacterial carbonized bamboo heater covers for additional safety and peace of mind.
Infrared waves, reflected from our infrared saunas to the body, provides concentrated radiant energy, similar to that from the sun. When any tissue in the body is exposed to 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, infrared waves from our saunas:
Increases blood flow by promoting dilation (expansion) of the micro-circulatory system of capillaries.
Reduces muscle spasms as muscle fibers are heated.
Removes toxins from the site receiving infrared waves.
Assists in the reduction of swelling and inflammation by improving lymph flow.
Reduces soreness through direct action on both free nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves.
At the cellular level, researchers have discovered the infrared wavelengths between 7 and 14 microns (the same as all of our infrared saunas):
Stimulates enzyme activity.
Promotes the adhesion and osmosis of water molecules across the cellular membrane.

Exclusive & Patented Solocarbon® 3-in-1 Full Spectrum Infrared Technology Found Only in Our Infrared Saunas
Solocarbon® is the most proven effective infrared heater around and is recommended by more doctors than any other heater.
Solocarbon® heaters have been rigorously tested for safety.
Conventional and other infrared sauna heaters operate at a surface temperature between 200°F and 1000°F. Solocarbon® heaters operate at a low 100° - 200°F.
More of the vital infrared light energy is emitted at a lower surface temperature.
This leads to more effective detoxification, better pain relief, and improved circulation.
Wein's Law of Displacement
Solocarbon® heaters do not use wires to conduct infrared heat. The perfect thickness of ultraconductive carbon is applied to a fiberglass panel activated by positive and negative copper strips on either side. The panel of fiberglass and carbon are then sealed by lamination. Because of this exclusive process, Solocarbon® heaters release NO UNHEALTHY GASES during operation.
Increases Core Body Temperature
Increasing the core body temperature is critical in achieving superior detoxification 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).
