Far-infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health.
Radiant heat from a far infrared sauna is completely harmless. In fact, this heat is so safe that is it used in hospitals to keep newborns warm. The radiant heat penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow, increasing circulation and revitalizing your cells and metabolism.
When infrared waves are applied to water molecules (our body’s are 70% comprised of water), these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gases and other toxic materials to be released. Impurities are removed, mainly from your fat cells where the body stores waste and harmful toxins. A session in a far-infrared sauna is an ideal way to detoxify.
Benefits you may experience include
- Improved skin
- reduced stress and fatigue
- Muscle pain relief
- Increased metabolism and weight loss
- Less joint pain and stiffness
- Enhanced immune system
- Improvement in cardiac health
In our clinic we have chosen to use a Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna because we believe them to be the best in the market. Clearlight have been a leader and innovator in the infrared sauna industry for the last 18 years
Why we choose a Clearlight Infrared Sauna
1. Designed by a doctor with a focus on healing the body
The aim of Dr Raleigh Duncan, the founder of Clearlight, was to design an infrared sauna that could deliver all the health benefits while ensuring zero detrimental effects such as EMF.
2. State of the art heating technology
Clearlight saunas produce the same far infrared heat that is produced by the sun and the wavelength of Clearlight infrared heaters, 9-10 microns, has been specifically developed to match the human body’s absorption of infrared heat.
The True Wave II far infrared heaters are the only infrared heaters on the market that combine both the very high infrared output of ceramic with the long wave infrared heat of carbon to produce a sauna session that is unmatched in the quality of infrared heat. Within seconds of sitting in a Clearlight Infrared Sauna you can feel the difference of the quality of the infrared heat.
3. 360° Infrared heat
One of the keys to sweating and effective detoxification in a far infrared sauna is heating your body core from every direction.
The position of the heaters is so that they surround your body and target your core, rather than heating the sauna cabin air. Every Clearlight Infrared model has heaters on the front wall, back wall, side walls and underneath the bench.
4. Gentle heat that penetrates deep
You’ll find the heat in a Clearlight sauna gentler than most, yet deeper and more penetrating, giving you an overall better sauna experience.
These low temperatures are shown to be more beneficial. They stimulate a fat sweat, which eliminates toxins stored in fat, as opposed to the high temperature sauna, which encourages a water sweat.
5. No EMF and low ELF
The True Wave II infrared heaters in Clearlight saunas are also the only carbon based infrared heaters with virtually no EMF (Electromagnetic Fields). More and more research is being conducted into the harmful effects of EMF which is why their R&D department spent over two years developing a patent pending method to eliminate virtually all of the EMF from the heaters.
6. Completely non-toxic materials
All Clearlight Infrared Saunas are constructed using non-toxic glues and varnishes, making the saunas ideal for people who are chemically sensitive. The solid wood frame is built to last and is healthier for you than plywood frames, which emit toxic fumes when heated.
7. Better than traditional saunas
- Infrared saunas leave you feeling invigorated, not depleted like traditional saunas.
- Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, far infrared saunas heat the body directly. In your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna only about 20% of the heat goes to heat the air and the other 80% directly heats your body. The result is deeper tissue penetration. When you are sitting in a traditional sauna, you are sitting in a hot room; 80°C -105°C degrees. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. In the far infrared sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna.
