What does takes place in an indoors infrared sauna?
Infrared saunas work using infrared heaters to convert light directly to heat. This heat has the effect of warming nearby objects without raising the air temperature; an infrared sauna absorbs heat but the surrounding air does not. After a 10 - 15 minutes the infrared radiators reach 100 % of their power output and will reach the operational temperature to commence the sauna session. An effect of warming in the middle of muscle tissue, makes a reaction of the hypothalamus by an acceleration of the flapping of the heart and pulse.
This influence on the heart gives an effect of preparation, at the same time all the body cooling systems and particularly the transpiration set off. The heating systems with infrared rays are a great alternative in comparison with the traditional sauna. Infrared warmth warms up not only the surface of the skin, but enters the body. This makes the infrared better than the traditional sauna.
Do not confuse far infrared radiant heat to ultraviolet radiation; both types of energy are present in the sun’s rays. However, ours saunas does not damage the skin the way UV does while still providing many of the benefits of natural sunlight.
Infrared Sauna Health Benefits.
Research has found that the infrared sauna is very efficient by warming up the body tissue by providing relief for sore muscles, joint pain and stiffness, especially arthritis chronic pain. The infrared sauna is recommended for people that have respiratory problems and that they may find it uncomfortable to stay in a traditional sauna.
This is where the infrared sauna is in advance in relation to the traditional sauna. It’s not the heat that is important but the quality of infrared rays you absorb. For example, like lying in the sun. At first, you will feel no change, after a while you start to sweat and the longer you stay, the more your body will absorb infrared rays. After a while you will start to feel much warmer; eventually you will feel too hot and go inside.
The air temperature did not change but you did feel much warmer. It’s the same as in the infrared sauna. The infrared heaters helps to increase the sweat production. Also in relation with the traditional sauna, the infrared panels will heat up much faster, approx 15 Minutes to reach the operational temperature, compared to 45 minutes for the traditional saunas.

In the infrared Sauna you do not need to feel exhausted in order to keep in shape, the fact that your heart is hard at work pumping the blood all over your body is a workout by its self.
The transpiration created by your body is constituted mainly 80% of water. The rest is more or less body acids, ammoniac, lubricates and cholesterol. In some cases the sweat may contain heavy metals, such as lead, nickel, cadmium, copper and sodium. Most of these toxins are stored in our fat cell. It is very important for our health that we get rid of this fat and all the toxins stores in it. This is where the infrared sauna exceeds, giving your body the opportunity to help its self get rid and eliminate the toxins and heavy metals that your kidney or lungs cannot.
