The experience of a Far Infrared Sauna carbon heaters is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. Infrared light is part of the Sun's invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. Unlike sunbathing, far infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in a far infrared sauna and it will never cause your skin to burn. Far infrared saunas increase the body's core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. Conventional hot rock/steam heat saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes the air difficult to breath. A far infrared sauna uses soothing dry far infrared heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing. Far infrared heat therapy has also been shown to assist with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and skin rejuvenation.
