FAR Infrared heater technology – also known as Vital Rays.
All humans send and receive far infrared waves. The range of waves generated by the human body is 6 to 20 microns. The optimal micron output range is between 7 and 14 microns which is very close to the resonant frequency of a water molecule. This similarity makes sense since our bodies are almost 70% water. This range, sometimes called “Vital Rays” appears to have special regenerative effects on the body.
The result of SA Saunas heater designs allows for better performance well within this vital wave range of 7 to 14 microns with a good portion of wavelengths at 9.4–which is the frequency at which a water molecule resonates or vibrates. This vibration causes a release of cellular toxins such as mercury, aluminium, cholesterol and other toxic gases such as sulphur and formaldehyde. This optimal micron output also allows for deeper penetration of far infrared heat, which improves pain relief, detoxification, circulation, and increased peripheral blood flow. Saunas are not created equally. Far infrared saunas make you sweat more and feel better.
Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum. One of far infrared light’s characteristics is the ability to easily penetrate human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. Remember the last time you were sunbathing with sunscreen? Were you still hot? Of course you were because the sunscreen only stops the UV (Ultraviolet) light from hitting your skin. The far infrared heat (Far infrared light waves) penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth.
You can be exposed to far infrared heat for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. Far infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, it is so safe it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
FAR Infrared Sauna versus Conventional Steam Sauna
|Plugs into a 15amp 220 volt mains outlet socket.Low energy consumption.||Needs to be wired to the Main DB Box with 30 amp circuit breaker installed by an Electrician. High Energy.|
|Heat range of 40 ° C to 60°C.Leaving the air comfortable to breathe.||Heated to a range of 60°C to 80°C.The air becomes uncomfortable to breathe.|
|Warms up in 8 to 10 minutes. Means a far infrared sauna can be used whenever you like and the cost of heating up is much less than a conventional sauna.||Warms up in a period of between 30 and 90 minutes. Means that you have to plan when to use the sauna.Costly initial warm-up!|
|Only 20% of the far infrared energy heats the surrounding air the remainder heats the person. Means a much lower running cost than a conventional sauna.||Heats the air first and the air heats the person.So not as effective at heating the person. Higher running cost than the far infrared sauna.|
|You produce 2-3 times the volume of sweat of a conventional sauna. Means better detoxification as more toxins can be driven out through the extra volume.||1/3 volume of sweat of a far infrared sauna.Less detoxification.|
|No water is needed to create steam or to cool you down.So Less likelihood of mould growing in your house due to the sauna humidity.||Steam and water vapour in the air bring increased risk of mould growth.Mould creates its own toxins.|
|Heat penetrates deeper which gives a beneficial cardiovascular workout as well as providing detoxification.||Heat is only on the surface of the skin – no cardiovascular workout|
