Far Infrared Energy

Far Infrared Energy

Remember standing in the sun on a cold winters day? Despite the cold air temperature, you could probably still feel the warmth from the sun. This is because of Far Infra Red rays - a completely safe energy that raises the temperature of objects without heating the surrounding air.

For thousands of years, cultures of the world knew the therapeutic value of heating the body for better health, healing and vitality. The Mayans, Native Americans, the Inuit, and Europeans all developed their own versions of saunas and sweat lodges. Two thousand years ago the ancient Greek physician Paemendides said, "Give me a chance to create fever and I will cure any disease."

Crafted in timber that doesn't out-gas (emit toxic resins) and using patented ceramic heating elements, the SoftHeat Far Infra Red Sauna emits far infrared rays in the range of 5.5 to 15 microns which achieves the optimum effect on the cells of the body. This heat is efficient because it warms you (rather than the surrounding air) so your body absorbs the majority of this heat causing perspiration and many other health benefits.

Conventional saunas rely on direct contact of heat or hot air, at high temperatures 80 - 104 Celsius, on the skin & lungs to produce its heating effects. Far Infra Red Saunas are able to produce up to 3 times the sweat volume of a conventional sauna at much safer temperatures (18 - 60 Celsius). Not only does the perspiration contain more toxins and less water, but more toxins will also be expelled through your kidneys, liver and even hair. So our SoftHeat Far Infra Red Saunas are a vast improvement over conventional saunas!
