Infrared Sauna was recently featured on the Oprah Show by Dr. Oz as part of a segment covering “High-Tech Ways to Extend Your Life”. Infrared Sauna has many health benefits, like its ability to lower blood pressure, increase blood circulation, burn up to 700 calories, while detoxifying the body. Dr. Oz says his in-laws introduced him to the infrared sauna, which is slightly different than a normal sauna. “It makes the same rays that come from the sun and filters out the UV radiation, so it only gives you the infrared radiation,” he says. “That radiation that’s infrared goes a little bit into your skin so, without heating you up and the external environment too much, it heats the body up.” After a few minutes in the sauna, Oprah says she’s starting to feel the heat. Dr. Oz says the high temperature helps lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation. “It gets your heart to beat faster, and it burns calories,” Dr. Oz says. “It raises your metabolism a little bit, and also when you sweat, you sweat out toxins through the skin.” ********************** Our sauna is a very special “FAR Infrared Radiant Thermal System.” Unlike conventional saunas that create excessively hot air that heats the skin superficially, the Infrared operates at a significantly cooler air temperature range of 110-130 (vs. 180-235) and penetrates the body to a depth of over 1.5 inches, so one can still breathe normally and without discomfort. Radiant heat has nothing to do with either ultraviolet radiation which causes sunburn or atomic radiation. Not only is it completely safe, the FAR Infrared waves have proven to have special regenerative effects on the body. When any cell is exposed to these levels of Infrared heat, response mechanisms stimulate the healing process in the body. What Can Infrared Technology Do For You?
