Is infrared sauna safe?Yes it is. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun and does not contain harmful UV rays. Infrared heat is so safe that hospitals use it to warm newborn infants.
Can I get burned?No, infrared heat is very gentle. It cannot cause sunburn because it contains no harmful UV rays.
Why is Infrared Sauna better than a traditional Sauna?Traditional saunas heat the air vs. the body directly. Rather than inducing detoxification and relaxation, this can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue vs. simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
Can anyone use an infrared sauna?We do not recommend pregnant women unless they consult their own physician. For children and elderly we recommend the sauna be operated at a lower temperature for no more than 15 minutes at a time as their body temperature rises much faster.
I’m taking prescription medications, can I still use an infrared sauna?"Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
Do I have to drink water before using the infrared sauna?Yes, we recommend that you hydrate thoroughly before and during use of the sauna. As your body heats you will sweat and the loss of water can change the electrolyte concentration and can have harmful effects. Water also helps the body to flush out the toxins.
Can the infrared sauna help me to lose weight?Research has shown that 30 minutes in a sauna will cause a person to burn 500-800 calories which is equivalent to running 3-5 miles. Much of the weight loss is water weight which needs to be replenished; however, the calories that are burned will not be replenished by the water.
