What is Infrared Radiant Heat?
Sunlight is a combination of visible light and invisible light. The seven colours of the rainbow are visible lights, and infrared rays and ultraviolet rays are invisible lights. Infrared rays are one of the sun’s rays and are the healthiest, they penetrate your skin deeply and dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body. The infrared rays vitalize your cells and metabolism.
Far infrared waves penetrate into our bodies to activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands offer one of only a few mechanisms that the body has to eliminate toxins and since the skin is the largest organ in the human body it is apparently a very good means for elimination. When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules (comprising 70% of our body) these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gasses and other toxic materials to be released.
Why Infrared Technology?
Tests have shown that the energy output of the True Wave far infrared heaters is tuned so closely to the body’s own radiant energy that our bodies absorb as much as 93% of the far infrared waves that reach our skin.
By comparison, conventional saunas must rely only on indirect means of heat: first, on convection (air currents) and then, conduction (direct contact of hot air with the skin) to produce its heating effect. Our Infrared Sauna is best used at temperatures between 38’C to 540C versus 82’C to 105’C for traditional hot-air saunas. Since conventional saunas require 30 to 90 minutes of warm-up before use, electricity costs are reported to be a lot higher than those of our Infrared Saunas which are ready to use in 10-15 minutes.
Yes! Infrared heat is all around us. Everything emits and receives infrared heat.
The human body emits and receives infrared heat in the far infrared band. Other surfaces, like a warm street or heated vending cart, give off infrared in the middle and near infrared band.
Do you want to experience far infrared heat right now? Take your hands and put your palms together. Move your hands about 1 cm apart. You will feel the warmth emanating from your palms. This is far infrared heat very similar to the infrared heat emitted from our True Wave heaters. Radiant far infrared is all around us and is essential for human life.
