An infrared sauna is usually a small portable room containing several infrared heaters. In an infrared sauna, the infrared heater produces radiant energy, which is the same as the heat from the sun, only without the harmful ultraviolet rays. Most of these heaters draw on technology developed in 1965 by Dr. Tadashi Ishikawa, a member of the Research and Development Department of Fuji Medical.
Traditional saunas, also called rock saunas or Finnish Saunas, use various types of heaters to warm the air and stones in a room. The room's walls can be logs or some other material lined with wood. Stones placed over the heat source attain a high temperature. In its primitive form the stones are heated by wood without a chimney. The fire dies and the smoke exits by the door. Heat is maintained by the stones. Stones are usually peridotite as they are heat stable. Modern Finnish saunas have thermostatically controlled electric stoves or wood stoves with chimneys.
In a traditional sauna the air temperature typically runs between 169 to 190 °F (76 to 88 °C), though temperatures over 200 °F (93 °C) are sometimes encountered. The hot air causes the body to heat up, and eventually results in a sweat. Water is thrown on the stones to achieve a "steam shock". This produces a quick "high". Some add herbs or oil like eucalyptus. Traditionally, ones skin is beaten with a bunch of birch twigs. When the heat becomes intolerable one cools down under a cold shower or, as in Finland, by jumping into a frozen lake.
An infrared sauna uses a variety of heater types from older technology steel incoloy rods, to highly-efficient ceramics plates, to newer "carbon" heaters.
Clearly, if you are buying a sauna, you would never compromise on quality and comfort. If it is for your home, then obviously it makes sense to go for the best. It is for your business, you would never want to settle for anything second grade and lose returning customers. And yes, we found far infrared sauna models well-tailored to fit your space constraints if you have any. Please note that these are all great healthmate saunas.
Saunas have some therapautic benefits such as detoxification, back pain relief and scar removal. The benefits of using a good FIR sauna are some of the following:
  • Detoxification: Scientists in Japan report that in the FIR treatment of clogged capillary vessels, heat expands the capillaries and then initiates the start of a process to dissolve hidden toxins. Infrared sauna detoxification promotes the elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood: Poisons, carcinogenic heavy metals, toxic substances from food processing, lactic acid, free fatty acids, subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue, excess sodium associated with hypertension, and uric acid which causes pain.
  • Improved blood circulation and blood quality: Removal of toxins enhance the blood circulation and blood quality.
  • Improved metabolism and weight loss if and only if you are overweight: A great way to lose weight if you are overweight (and if you are not, don't worry, you are not going to become lighter). A person can easily sweat off 500-800 grams in a FIR sauna, which is equivalent to running 2 - 4 miles.
  • Beauty: The improved blood circulation leads to good skin health. It makes your skin beautiful, glowing and youthful. You can feel the inner glow due to deep cleansing of your skin.
  • Skin Improvement: A far infra red sauna removes roughness, leaving skin baby smooth and soft again. Firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Removes/reduces acne, sunburn and scars of skin.
  • Healing: Helps in removing pains and injuries faster.
  • Effects of Soft Heating: The soft heating that causes the sweat in a FIR sauna not only saves electricity, but also prevents long-term health hazards that a person might otherwise experience if exposed to heat often enough.
