Infrared Saunas Can Help Your Health And Soul

infrared saunas.thumbnail Infrared Saunas Can Help  Your  Health And  Soul conventional saunas have been used for centuries for their many health benefits . The heat of a sauna helps in the improvement of circulation and sweating, helps to discharge waste from the pores, erases irritations and blots from the skin, relaxes the muscles, and improves skin texture . The large amount of energy be it gas, electric, or wood, which is used to warm up infrared saunas has prevented excused the possibilities of home sauna use. Now, kudos to the progress of infrared saunas, it is possible to have a sauna in your home without the high cost .

infrared saunas operate by scalding the air and your body through infrared rays. These rays use less energy than traditional sources ; because the rays heat your body up from the inside as well , the high temperatures that are required in traditional saunas do not have to be reached in infrared saunas. These saunas can be used , and maintained, without breaking your cost effectiveness. The three forms of saunas that are currently available on the market today are namely: the infrared lamp saunas, the far infrared saunas, and the conventional saunas.

Infrared lamp saunas are the most famous house use saunas on the shops today. These saunas heat up the space by using incandescent infrared heat lamps; besides the infrared rays to heat the room, infrared lamp saunas diffuse lights which may help with seasonal depression afflictions. The far infrared saunas work much like the infrared lamp saunas, but these saunas use ceramic or metallic materials to emit infrared lights that are in the far infrared series. traditional saunas are most often used by sports facilities ; these saunas use wood, electricity, or gas as a as a medium of heating up; conventional saunas also employ heated rocks that can be used to create steam. While conventional saunas are known for their health benefits , equal health benefits can be realized using infrared saunas while resources like money and energy are conserved.

    Readers planning to put a sauna in their home should beware of the so-called “infrared” saunas, most of which are made in the People’s Republic of China from clearly inferior materials. These are not the genuine saunas in the Scandinavian style.

    Although both types of sauna have electrical heating elements, that’s where the similarity ends. In the traditional heater, these elements are hidden inside the cabinet, where they heat the air as well as a mass of special stones. This allows for a nice consistent heat and the Finnish custom of “loyly”, which is the sprinkling of water on the stones and which can change the environment in the sauna dramatically.

    The “infrared” heaters have exposed heating elements, so that the heat radiates directly onto the bather in sort of a one sided fashion. Most important, these “infrared” heaters have a much lower capacity, so the complaint we hear most often about them is that they fail to attain the heat typical for a genuine sauna, especially on the part of the bather’s body that’s turned away from the heater.

    Obviously, you also sacrifice the ability to sprinkle water on the heater, and we’re not even certain that it’s actually healthy to expose one’s self to such direct radiation, or how enjoyable such an experience would be, compared to the traditional sauna.

    We can, however, tell you that the traditional Scandinavian style saunas are centuries old (they used to heat them with wood, before the advent of electricity), and their safety and therapeutic efficacy is well established.

    The Chinese are spreading some pretty wild claims about their infrared saunas, and they’re also spreading falsehoods about the traditional Scandinavian style saunas.

    The U.S. market is flooded with these cheap saunas from the PRC, and one fellow sauna vendor confided to me that he had received a shipment of these Chinese infrared saunas, and that they were all underwired – the gauge of wire was too small to carry the load – making them a real fire risk.

    As with tainted toothpaste, poisonous pet food and lead painted children’s toys, some of these saunas are downright hazardous! But you don’t have to take my word for it. How about the Electrical Safety Authority in Ontario, Canada? See…

    Our biggest issue is with the false claims being made for these saunas. They give all sauna vendors a bad name. Several vendors we’ve seen make wild weight loss claims – 600 to 800 calories burned from sitting in one! One site we saw claimed that 30 minutes in their sauna burns nearly as many calories as running a marathon!

    Come on. Use your common sense!

    Unfortunately, weight loss claims for any type of sauna are just hype (sorry folks!). Your body just loses water, and it’s dangerous to lose weight through dehydration (are you listening wrestlers and jockeys?). See what a real doctor has to say about it at…

    …the list of misrepresentations goes on and on.

    Take whatever you read with a grain of salt, and use your common sense when evaluating claims. Always check the country of origin when comparing sauna offers.
