Medical Grade Infrared Sauna & Salt Therapy

What is a near infrared sauna?

In the early 2000s scientists observed that frequencies generated in the near infrared range had some effect on cellular regeneration. It is possible that this has added to the “healing effect” observed in those 1990 studies at the Mayo Clinic, but these are recent observations and not much is yet known about it. It is known that the more natural elements such as ceramic will emit a natural full spectrum of infrared heat in the near, mid and far infrared ranges. This all happens simultaneously as, according to the laws of physics, multiple wavelengths are emitted from a single object at the same time.

 How is an infrared sauna different than a regular sauna?

“Regular” saunas are the European kinds that get super hot, so it’s hard to breathe. SaunaRay infrared saunas use ceramic heated elements to gently warm your skin to encourage sweat in a warm environment where it’s easy to breathe normally.The goal of any sauna is to make you sweat. Your high-temperature sauna does this by super-heating the air so that when you breathe your body’s autonomic nerve is triggered. This nerve controls your body temperature. When your body’s autonomic nerve is triggered, this makes your blood pressure and heart rate increase to pump blood to your extremities to cool off your organs. The sweat is triggered as a cooling mechanism.SaunaRay’s infrared saunas cause you to sweat without raising your core temperature. The gentle, but powerful, infrared heat warms your skin and triggers the sweat glands before your core body temperature rises. You go inside at 27-28C (82-84F) instead of 60-80C, like in the wood-fired sauna. You can breathe normally in the warm air as the temperature slowly rises. By the time it gets to about 40C (105F), you are usually soaked with sweat and ready to come out. This means your body temp remains normal, and there is no recovery period. You don’t feel tired or knocked out by the heat.

Medical Grade Sauna Benefits

Detox: Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared sauna use causes a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.

Lower Blood Pressure: Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.

Anti-Aging: Near infrared saunas provide the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.

Cell Health: Near infrared sauna therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.

Weight Loss: Studies have shown that a far infrared sauna therapy session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.

Relieve Pain: Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, and speeds up recovery time.

Improve Circulation: SaunaRay sauna treatments are like giving your body a passive cardiovascular workout. Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.

Heal Wounds: Near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth.

Is it Easy to Breathe in the Sauna?

Medical grade infrared saunas employ ceramic elements so they don’t overheat the air. When you’re sitting inside an infrared sauna, taking a breath is comfortable – not uncomfortable and sort of stressful. When you breathe superheated sauna air that other types of saunas produce, it affects the alveoli in your lungs. As a result, your body’s autonomic response triggers your heart to start pumping blood to your extremities to cool off your core organs. Finally, you sweat as a cooling mechanism.

In a medical-grade infrared sauna, the ceramic elements emit heat in the infrared spectrum (below red-hot, like the elements in a high-temperature sauna). Your body loves this heat. Humans absorb heat in the infrared spectrum, like the sun’s heat, naturally and very efficiently. We’ve been absorbing heat like this all of the time. Your skin absorbs the heat naturally and quickly and the sweat glands just under the surface activate and start pushing out sweat without causing your heart to race, or your blood temperature to rise. It’s a much lower-stress way to detox.

Being able to sit inside without feeling a burning sensation in your lungs or on your skin has opened up the world of saunas to so many people and made infrared saunas a growing popular choice across North America today.

Are Infrared saunas made of toxins?

SaunaRay infrared saunas are carefully made without toxins. Many imported saunas are built with plywood and carbon fiber heaters that are made from composite chemicals from the floor heating industry.Cedar Saunas often outgas chemicals that can adversely affect the body.
