Frequently Asked Questions
Infrared heat is completely safe and all objects give off and receive infrared heat. In fact, it is so safe, hospitals use similar heaters to warm newborns. Infrared is a part of nature and essential for life. The human body gives off and receives infrared in the far-infrared band. When a mother rubs a baby’s stomach to relieve pain, it is the infrared heat from her hand that is causing the healing effect. We have tuned our True Wave heaters to give off far infrared in this same range for maximum absorption by your body and for maximum therapeutic benefits. Learn more about our Infrared Sauna.
The idea behind infrared therapy is to heat your body directly with far-infrared heat. In a traditional sauna, you are just sitting in a hot room of 80°C-105°C. In an infrared sauna, the heat is heating your body directly and only 20% of the heat is heating the air. You want to heat your body core, meaning your front core and your back core. Your body absorbs the infrared heat and reacts to it. The gentle infrared heat raises your core body temperature and stimulates your metabolism, lymphatic system, immune system, and your cardiovascular system. Your body’s response to that is to sweat profusely. In addition to the infrared heat triggering a profuse sweat, the water in our bodies also resonates with far infrared heat and this also helps with the detoxification process. With this in mind, you now understand why we stress the importance of having heaters all around you in an infrared sauna. If you do not have front heaters in your sauna, you will not raise your core body temperature as well and you will not receive as much of the desired effect. All of our Infrared Saunas have heaters all around you… on your front, back, sides, calves, and legs. We call this 360° heat.
Everyone is different but we recommend at least 2-3 sessions per week and then can judge by the results how to go forward from there, you need to give the therapy a chance to start its work. Our staff can advise and help you to arrange your sessions.
1 person per session. We are adding a 2-3 person sauna September 2023.
The infrared frequency of an infrared heater is determined by the surface temperature of the heater itself. The lower the surface temperature of the heater, the longer the infrared wave and the more beneficial the infrared heat will be. Our large True Wave II™ heaters run at an optimal surface temperature producing exceptional quality far-infrared heat. This means our heaters produce the majority of the infrared heat in the vital wave range of 5 to 15 microns with a good portion of wavelengths at 9.4, the optimal absorption range of far infrared by the human body. Only Clearlight Infrared True Wave II heaters combine the high infrared output of ceramic with long wave carbon infrared heat to produce the most effective infrared heaters available.
Comfortable clothing is recommended for the sauna room. You may change into clothing that exposes areas of skin you would like the rays to reach (shorts, sleeveless shirts, skirts, etc). We use clean towels and pads for each guest so you can use the sauna in your birthday suit.
