If you have you ever wanted a sauna in your own home, but don’t have the space for the more traditional Finnish Sauna or Banya, then it might be worth considering an Infrared Sauna instead.
The Infra cabins come in various sizes to suit all homes, some as small as 1m2 , and have as wide a range of health benefits as a traditional sauna. It therefore comes as no surprise to hear that Hollywood stars such as Jennifer Aniston are extolling the virtues of infrared and are making it part of their everyday wellbeing routine.
Radiant heat and long wave infrared is absorbed by the surface of the skin and is very similar to the heat we get from the sun. Body tissue is then warmed without raising the air temperature unlike the more traditional sauna. The infrared heat penetrates deep into the body, increasing the core temperature and inducing sweating which releases toxins. As you sweat, your heart pumps faster, increasing the blood flow, reducing blood pressure and improving circulation. The usual temperature range in a room is between 45-60 degrees with relative humidity.
As the infrared heat gently penetrates muscles and tissue directly, it can help to alleviate the pain of arthritis, bad backs and other ailments. It can even help with dermatological problems as it can heal the epidermis layer of your skin.
Some studies suggest there is also the added benefit of slight weight loss as your body works hard to cool itself thus burning up some calories!!
You can easily experience the added health benefits of mood changing colour therapy by installing chromotherapy lighting to your infra cabin (as discussed in our previous blog post ‘Complementary Wellbeing Part 2: Chromotherapy’ published in July 2015). You can also incorporate a music system within the room to fully maximise your wellbeing enjoyment.
All infrared delivery systems produce EMR (Electromagnetic Radiation) and EF (Electrical Field) to some extent. Because of this, Pure Infra technology was developed to take the worry out of unnecessary exposure. For example, the EF in a Pure Infra cabin is less than you would experience from a computer or mobile phone. Swedish manufacturer Tylö AB incorporate their exclusive Evenheat technology into their Infrared Saunas which spreads the heat evenly throughout the cabin without any ‘cold spots’ or unnecessary exposure to electrical fields.
A major advantage of Pure Infra Cabins is that they are ready to use in a very short space of time and operate efficiently, using up to 20% less energy than other systems. There are many different infrared heating systems but Tylö AB use the CarbonFlex system which has large infra panels, again ensuring an even distribution of heat across the benches walls and floor.
Once your Infrared room has been delivered and assembled, simply plug directly into a normal electrical socket and start enjoying the wellbeing benefits of soothing radiant heat in an aesthetically pleasing, fully glass fronted cabin.
Whatever taste, budget or space restrictions there is an infra cabin for you.
