Have you guys heard of infrared sauna? Yes, INFRARED sauna! Things are getting more high-tech these days and I got to experience it last week! When I first heard about it, the first thing that came through my mind is, if this is safe? Don’t worry guys, it’s nothing like ultraviolet radiation (which gives you a sunburn and damages your skin) or atomic radiation (the kind from a nuclear bomb). When two people comes close to each other, they give out warmth right? That’s infrared. Our bodies radiate infrared energy out through 3 ~ 50 microns. Our palms emit infrared energy at at between 8 ~ 14 microns. Hence, palm healing was used as healing properties in China, India and Finland thousands of years ago. Today, the Infrared Thermal Systems are used by medical practitioners. Panels that produce similar infrared rays are used in hospitals to warm newborn babies. Infrared Thermal System has been tested and found to be free of such so-called “toxic” electromagnetic fields. The Swedish National Institute of Radiation Protection has concluded that the heaters in Infrared Thermal System are not dangerous. YAYYYYYY!
Infrared sauna is not as hot as the conventional sauna because 80% of the infrared energy is directly converted to heat within our bodies making it much greater depth and more efficiently. The energy output is primarily used to convert energy directly to heat in us and not to create excessively hot air which only heats the skin superficially. Due to this, it was actually easier to breathe and much comfortable. Not only that, I was able to read magazines and play with my phone. It was relaxing!
Infrared sauna also induce up to 2 – 3 times the sweat volume than a conventional sauna. Within 10 minutes, I was already drenched with sweat! My 30 minute session in the sauna, I burned about 900 calories that is equivalent to 9KM run. In a single session? Impressive huh. This Infrared Thermal System play a pivotal role in both weight control and cardiovascular conditioning. This would be valuable for those who don’t exercise and those who can’t exercise (those who are on a wheelchair and etc) and yet want an effective weight control and fitness maintenance program and the benefits of a regular exercise.
There are many health benefits attributed to infrared rays. These are the list of results by Dr. Yamajaki;
- Burns: relieves pain and decreases healing time, with less scarring
- High Blood Pressure
- Low Blood pressure
- Brain Damage: accelerated repair in brain contusions
- Short-term memory improved
- Cancer of the tongue reversed
- Toxic Electromagnetic Fields: effects neutralized
- Cerebral Hemorrhages
- Auto Accident: related soft tissue injury
- Gouty Arthritis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
It also helps for someone like me who has skin conditions. It is reported that eczema and psoriasis to have responded extremely well to infrared treatments. Scars and pain from burns or wounds are decreased in severity and extent. People who have acne problems, 3 or 4 treatments may open up their pores that have not functioning in years. It even work on keloids! It may be softened gradually by use of infrared systems.
Lastly, the one thing that I’ve always looking for solution to this problem, and infrared system is the answer to it! Getting rid off my cellulite! Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes, which are trapped in pockets below the skin. An Infrared Thermal System can assist this condition, as profuse swearing helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body. Due to at least twice the depth of heat penetration into cellulite combined up to 10 times the level of heating in these tissues, an Infra Therapist System can be significantly more effective than any conventional sauna.
With all the benefits of infrared rays, I don’t see why I shouldn’t do this regularly. On top of that, the price for one session is very reasonable and they have packages which gives you even better deal.
