What Is Infrared Therapy?
Infrared heat is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum, which has the ability to gently and comfortably penetrate human tissue to deliver a host of health benefits.
Unlike traditional saunas, infrared heat is effective at a more comfortable operating temperature than traditional saunas (100°-150°F for infrared vs. 200°F for a traditional sauna). By penetrating human tissue, infrared heat has been found to be seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body.
Near, Mid, and Far-Infrared each provide their own unique benefits. And since each wavelength offers different health benefits, experiencing all three at once is the best way to maximize the benefits of using a sauna.
These near-infrared waves have a shorter frequency range and will only penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin. This effect makes it a safe and optimal choice for skin rejuvenation, wound healing, and skin health.
Near-infrared heat is similar to the infrared used in many cosmetic and healing devices. The LED technology we use at FRE allows our heaters to produce consistent near infrared waves without extreme heat or light, making it a safe option for near-infrared use.
Mid-infrared wavelengths penetrate deeper into the body than low infrared and are beneficial for increasing circulation. These circulatory effects are so effective that mid-infrared therapy can mirror the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout! Regular mid-infrared sauna therapy has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow – its effects continuing on even after the sauna session is completed.
The far-infrared wavelengths are unique as they heat the body directly rather than simply warming the air. They raise the core body temperature and produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction and weight loss, burning up to 600 calories in one 40-minute session!
