Far infrared radiant energy directly penetrates the body's tissues to a depth of over 1.5 inches. The energy output of our sauna’s therapeutic heating elements are tuned to the human body's own radiant energy so our bodies can absorb as much as 93% of the infrared waves.

A conventional sauna must rely only on indirect means of heat: convection (air currents) and conduction (direct contact of hot air with the skin) to produce its heating effect. In our sauna, less than 20% of the infrared energy heats the air, leaving over 80% available to be directly converted to heat within our bodies.

These Far Infrared therapeutic system can warm a user to a much greater depth and more efficiently than a conventional sauna, as its energy output primarily converts energy directly to heat inside the body rather than heating the air surrounding the body which would subsequently only provide superficial heating. This important difference explains many of the unprecedented benefits reported to be available through Far Infrared therapy, which are not attainable through the use of a conventional sauna.

The infrared energy applied in your therapeutic sauna may induce up to 2 ~ 3 times the sweat volume of a traditional hot-air sauna while operating at a significantly cooler air temperature range of 104F to 150F as compared to. 180F to 235F for hot-air saunas. The lower heat range is safer for those concerned about cardiovascular risk factors that might be adversely affected by the higher temperatures encountered in old-style hot-air saunas.

Another benefit of the lower temperature is that the surrounding air remains cool to breathe, in fact air can be ventilated through the sauna session during use without diminishing the efficiency of the session.

Due to its user-friendly simple design, people naturally prefer to use our Far Infrared therapeutic sauna because of the familiar feeling of well-being evoked after using our product.

The conventional hot-air saunas require extensive warm-up periods of 30 ~ 90 minutes, making them less practical than your modern sauna which ready for use in about 5 -10 minutes at room temperature. A quick and efficient warm up time in addition to the convenient automatic thermostat shutoff as well as a relatively lower wattage consumption all result in consumer savings.
