What are infrared rays?

    Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see the band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in between.

    The infrared sauna at Podium Sports Therapy Massage has three segments of wavelengths: near, middle and far. Far wavelengths penetrate the human body 2 to 3 inches so that the warm in effect is very uniform.

    Are infrared rays safe?

    Because infrared rays are part of sunlight, they are not only safe but also highly beneficial to our bodies on a cellular level. Healthcare professionals have used Infrared rays for decades to treat muscle and joint problems.

    How Infrared Saunas Work

    Infrared saunas differ from traditional saunas in that they use infrared radiant energy to directly penetrate into the body tissue to produce Perspiration as traditional saunas use steam to heat the air inside the sauna which then heats your body until you begin to perspire. In order for this to be effective, traditional saunas need to reach upwards of 190 while infrared saunas only need to reach up to 120 , which makes the environment more tolerable and allows you to breathe easier.

Benefits of Infrared Sauna

Because infrared rays penetrate the body through conversion, there is a deep heating effect in both the muscle tissues and internal organs without putting too much burden on the heart.

Our body reacts to increased heat through perspiration, which then eliminates acid and waste residue like toxins, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and the potentially Carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells.
