Far-Infrared (FIR) saunas naturally heat up to a temperature of 100-140 degrees Fahrenheit and warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight without the negative effects. The heat penetrates into the skin 1-2 inches deep creating various therapeutic effects. The body absorbs as much as 92 per cent of the heat inducing perspiration, creating detoxification. When cells and tissues are exposed to infrared rays it stimulates the healing process in the body.
This deep heat penetration at lower temperatures compared to conventional saunas, makes infrared saunas a highly enjoyable and comfortable environment. This type of environment is tolerated well by the majority of people, including those with health problems that prevent them from using conventional saunas.
Infrared saunas may be beneficial for the following health conditions:
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Joint pain
• Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne and other skin disorders
• Toxicity (i.e. heavy metals, pesticides, solvents, plastics, etc.)
