Safe and efficient Far Infrared
technology. Our infrared panels are specifically designed to emit energy at the same wavelength as that emitted by the human body. As an added benefit iHealth Far Infrared Saunas operate at substantially lower temperatures than conventional steam/hot rock saunas, permitting extended and more comfortable sauna sessions.
Our body readily absorbs far infrared or healthy light (energy) to a depth of 45mm creating a deep, penetrating heat that relaxes, soothes and loosens sore joints and muscles. Conventional steam saunas heat the air to extreme levels yet only penetrate our body 5 – 10mm.
How Far Infrared heat works for you:
Infrared heat is simply a form of energy that is directly transmitted at a specific wavelength. It is not ultraviolet light which causes sunburn and damages your skin.
The sun is our natural supplier of infrared heat. In the shade, a thermometer shows the actual air temperature, but will show a higher temperature in direct sunlight due to infrared rays, despite the actual air temperature being
the same as in the shade. Conventional (steam) saunas need high air temperatures to extract impurities, while far infrared heated saunas penetrate up to 45 mm inside the body, so impurities can be pushed out using lower, more comfortable temperatures. Compared to conventional sauna’s this means many more health benefits.
The iHealth frequencies:
The 700 to 1000nm long infrared heat rays are the most beneficial to the human body. The same as those issued by an iHealth Far Infrared Sauna.
How does it work?
Unlike conventional heating systems which rely on heating the air to warm our bodies, the efficient far infrared heat loses less than 20% of its energy in heating the surrounding air, allowing over 80% of the heat energy to be directly converted to heat onto and within our bodies. This energy can then penetrate safely up to 45mm into our skin layer and outer body.
How does it benefit us?
Our body reacts to increased heat by perspiring. Through the human perspiration process, toxins like, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and potentially carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells. We also shed old skin cells, leaving it glowing and immaculately clean, with improved tone, elasticity, texture and colour. By taking this detoxifying load off the liver and kidneys, even people with impaired liver or kidney function enjoy significant benefits.
Increases Circulation and Strengthens Cardiovascular System:
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness. “Many of us who run do so to place a demand
on our cardiovascular systems, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a sauna may impart similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as exercise.” American Medical Association Journal.
Weight Control & Caloric Consumption:
Our body uses energy to produce sweat – 1gm of sweat requires the burn of 0.586 kcal. A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat up to 1000gms or more in a session. While this weight loss can be regained by rehydration, the calories consumed will not. A valuable opt in for those who don’t exercise and those who can not exercise.
European specialists incorporate daily use in programs to reduce cellulite. Because radiant heat from an iHealth Far Infrared Sauna warms 3 times as deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.
Beautiful, youthful skin:
Infrared heat helps develop and improve the body’s capillary network.
Excellent for increasing blood circulation to the skin – essential for beautiful, youthful, glowing skin!
- A new “inner glow” as the skin is freed of accumulated dirt and dry skin cells due to the deep cleansing of impurities
- Relief for acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, any skin lesions or cuts
- Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring
- Removes skin roughness, leaving it baby smooth and soft
- Firms and improves skin tone/elasticity
Athletes – great for a warm-up:
The perfect warm up prior to exercise, because muscles relax more readily when tissues are warm and allow greater flexibility and range of motion. Afterwards it helps recovery and faster healing of strains and muscle pain. Infrared saunas are installed at top sporting events such as the Olympic games for this purpose.
Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness:
In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from any form of arthritis. In addition, it has been proved effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with ageing is reduced or eliminated.
Improves the Immune System:
Deep heat produced from a far infrared sauna raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the “fever”, your body’s immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes from intense sweating, overall health and resistance to disease is increased.
Burn up to 1OOO calories in one session!
Yes, you can do absolutely nothing and burn the calories.
Our body uses energy to produce sweat. One gram of sweat requires the burn of 0.586 kcal. A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off up to 1000gms or more in a sauna session – the equivalent to running 10-15 kms. The following chart shows the number of calories a heat
conditioned person of 68 kg, may burns in 30 mins.
Say goodbye to pain!
With regular sauna use our customers have reported significant reduction in
arthritis pain, rheumatism pain, as well as back and muscular pain.
The deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen rich blood to depleted muscles, so they recover faster.
Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness: In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from any form of arthritis. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with ageing is reduced or eliminated.
Reduces Stress and Fatigue: Perhaps the most immediate effect you will experience with your iHealth far Infrared Sauna is pure relaxation, as it melts away the stress and tension of life. Just a few minutes in the
gentle warmth of your iHealth Infrared Sauna gives you an overall massaging effect, soothing jangled nerves and knotted muscles. You’ll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in body and mind.
