What exactly is far infrared (FIR) radiant heat? No need to worry- it has nothing to do with either ultraviolet
radiation (which gives you a sunburn and damages your skin) or atomic radiation (the kind from a nuclear

Far Infrared Radiant heat is simply a form of energy that heats objects directly through a process called
conversion, without having to heat the air in between. Radiant heat is also called infrared energy (IR). The
infrared segment of the electromagnetic spectrum is divided into 3 segments by wave length, measured in
microns or micrometers (a micron = 1/1,000,000 of meter): 0.076 – 1.5 microns = near or close; 1.5 – 5.6 =
intermediate; 5.6-1,000= far or long wave infrared. The infrared segment of the electromagnetic spectrum
occurs just below or "infra" to red light, which we perceive as heat. Our sun produces most of its energy
output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Our atmosphere allows IR rays in the 7-14 micron range to
safely reach the earth’s surface. When warmed, the earth radiates infrared rays in the 7-14 micron band with
its peak output at 10 microns.

The sun is the principal source of radiant energy that we experience daily. Have you ever been outside on a
partly cloudy spring day of about 50 degrees and felt quite comfortable when suddenly the sun was obscured
by a cloud? Although the air temperature had not had time to drop, you felt chilled, as the cloud would not let
the warming infrared rays through to reach you. The infrared heat in the FIR heat sauna is just like the heat
from our sun or that which our own bodies produce as they burn fuel to keep us warm.

Relief for Arthritis,  Muscle Spasms,  Headache,
Sinus Congestion  *  Benefit Your Skin
Provides the Same Effects as Exercise
Reduce Stress  *  Weight Control
Strengthened Immune System
Weight Control - Perspiring is part of the
complex thermoregulatory
process of the body that increases
the heart rate, cardiac output and
metabolic rate. The process requires
a large amount of the energy and
reduces moisture, salts and
subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes
soluble at 42 deg. C and the body
sweats out the fats and toxins. It
aids in cellulite reduction, burns as
much as 500 calories in 30 minutes
and improves enzyme activity.

Strengthened Immune System
During a fever, the body heats up
to eliminate viruses and attack
foreign agents. Subsequently, the
body wards off invading organisms
much more easily because the
immune system is activated
consistently by the “artificial fever”
Recent studies also show that colds
and flu-like illnesses are reduced
dramatically if treated in early
stages with sauna therapy.  It
improves the respiratory system and
sinus congestion.  This sauna
stimulates endorphins of the brain
and kills organisms like bacteria
and parasites. It improves the
immune system by sweating at a
lower, more comfortable
temperature than a conventional
hot sauna.
Expel Toxins - Detoxification:          
nicotine, cholesterol, hydrocarbon    
residues and carcinogenic heavy      
metals accumulate in the body         
during modern daily life. Infrared     heat
therapy reduces the buildup of  toxins
and mineral waste by perspiring.

Pain Relief - FIR heat relieves pain by
expanding blood vessels and
increasing circulation. Better
circulation allows more oxygen to
reach injured areas of the body and
helps reduce pain and speed up the
healing process. Many People use
FIR heat as a successful treatment
headache, and rheumatism.

Benefit Your Skin - Infrared heat is
excellent for increasing blood
circulation to the skin, which is
essential for beautiful, youthful,
glowing skin! It expels dirt and
chemicals and removes dead cells
on the surface of the skin. It also
reduces wrinkling, helps scars and
acne, psoriasis and eczema.

Provides the Same Effects as  
- The heart receives a
workout similar to a 6 mile run in a
20-30 minute sauna session by
perspiring the same amount.
Infrared saunas are perfect for
those that do not have time for
regular exercise or suffer from
injuries that inhibit rigorous.

The following excerpt is from the American Spa Magazine, July 2017:  

“According to research presented at the 2016 Global Wellness Summit, the number one wellness trend for
2017 is the reimagining of saunas.  And with everyone looking to boost their overall wellness, it is no wonder
that celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Lady Gaga have discovered the treatment.  Today’s saunas offer a
range of state of the art features, including infrared technology.  Infrared (25nm-15000nm) (IR) when used in
a sauna, heats the body directly using the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum rays, while traditional saunas
heat the air using hot rocks or steam.  Infrared saunas also differ from light based near infrared treatments,
which don’t heat the body, but allow the cells to absorb light energy, says LightStim’s Amy Gardner.  Saunas
with infrared heaters raise the core-body temperature by two to three degrees.  This produces a deep sweat
at the cellular level and allows the body to detox.  When it comes to detoxification, infrared saunas are seven
times more effective than a traditional sauna and can help treat the side effects of Lyme disease,
autoimmune issues, arthritis, chronic fatigue, and autism.  It also rids the body of toxic elements, says spa
manager Kim Callaway.  “The benefit of an infrared device or sauna is primarily overall wellness,” says
Aerolase’s Sean Johnson.”
