A Far-Infrared (FIR) sauna warms the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. FIR heat therapy uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally. Traditional saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air.
FIR saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, FIR Sauna’s heat the body directly. The result is deeper tissue penetration. In the FIR sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extreme hot air of a traditional steam sauna, the infrared heater produces radiant energy, which is the same as the heat from the sun, only without the harmful ultraviolet rays.
Traditional saunas are more likely to spread and cultivate bacteria in the humid air, therefore an infrared sauna creates a more sanitary environment.
Our sauna is made of natural wood (solid Hemlock). It has a thick glass door and offers low EMF far infrared. It also includes Chromotherapy/Colour Therapy if desired.
