The term “full-spectrum” refers to all three forms of infrared light: far, mid, and near, each with its own set of advantages. The infrared spectrum is part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
“Infra” means “below” or “beyond,” and “red” simply means “color.” Infrared literally means “after red,” which makes sense given that the far, mid, and near designations refer to the wavelength’s distance from the visible hue red.
All of the distinct red hues are on the right side of the “visible light” section. Now for the “infrared” section: near-infrared is the closest to red, far infrared is the furthest away from red, and mid-infrared is in the center.
Relax in Sunlighten full-spectrum infrared saunas and achieve your health objectives faster. You may tailor your session to match your wellness goals by incorporating near-, mid-, and far-infrared wavelengths, whether it’s cell health and skin renewal, pain treatment, weight loss, detoxification, or heart health. A deep sense of relaxation, anti-aging on a cellular level, muscle healing, immunological strengthening, and enhancing the body’s inherent ability to repair are all additional benefits which includes;
• Cardio Program (45 minutes): Begin with a high intensity to raise heart rate and cardiac output, then gradually decreases to maintain heart rate. Circulation improves to help maintain a healthy blood pressure level.
• Detoxification (37 minutes): Begin with a strong intensity to raise the body’s core temperature, then gradually lower to a low, comfortable intensity. The use of an IR combination enhances vascular access flow, allowing toxins to be reached at the cellular level.
• 30 minutes of pain relief:
While near IR LEDs penetrate the tissue to stimulate cellular healing at a medium, continuous intensity, an IR blend delivers natural pain relief by reducing inflammation and swelling.
• Relaxation (40 minutes): Far infrared promotes overall stress reduction by inducing deep relaxation by relieving muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity.
• Weight Loss (30 minutes): Begin with a high intensity to stimulate the cardiovascular system, then gradually decrease to a medium intensity. Similar to exercise, the body strives to cool itself by increasing heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate.
• Anti-Aging (30 minutes): A low consistent intensity level penetrates tissue to aid in the treatment of many skin issues. Near-infrared LEDs promote anti-aging advantages by improving general skin tone, elasticity, and firmness.
IMPORTANCE OF FULL-SPECTRUM INFRARED SAUNAS
Full-spectrum infrared saunas are not available in all infrared saunas. As a result, it’s critical to pay attention to both the product title and the product description.
Infrared saunas are most usually labeled as “far-infrared,” which indicates they emit mostly far-infrared wavelengths. We realize it’s a little perplexing, so please bear with us as we explain.
For instance, if you search for “Joyous 2 Person Far Infrared Sauna,” you’ll see far-infrared wavelengths. Far infrared is responsible for all of the heat in an infrared sauna cabin. Mid and near-infrared have many advantages, but they cannot generate enough heat to create perspiration on their own.
The term “Full Spectrum” must be in the product title to assure that your infrared sauna has all three infrared wavelengths (far, mid, and near).
“TosiTM 2 Person Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna,” for example. The optimal full-spectrum sauna session is created by combining carbon fiber heaters with sophisticated near-infrared LED strips.
As previously said, each wavelength has its unique set of benefits:
Near-Infrared (NIR): NIR has the shortest wavelength of the three. It’s absorbed just beneath the skin’s surface, encouraging wound healing, cell health/regeneration, skin rejuvenation, and inflammation reduction. NIR has also been demonstrated to aid in healing acne lesions, removing fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulating collagen formation.
Mid Infrared (MIR): Because MIR is longer than NIR, it can penetrate deeper into soft tissue. MIR can aid in the reduction of inflammation, discomfort, and overall healing time. Weight loss and the widening of blood vessels, which leads to enhanced circulation, are two more advantages.
Far Infrared (FIR): The longest wavelength, far-infrared (FIR), penetrates the deepest, where poisons and compounds are trapped. It can help you lose weight and raise your heart rate, and this rise in BPMs is comparable to light cardio. Furthermore, FIR promotes vasodilation, which improves blood flow throughout the body. FIR can also help with pain relief, joint stiffness, inflammation reduction, and overall stress reduction. Not to mention the intense cleansing that occurs as a result of heavy perspiration. People frequently report feeling energetic and balanced after an FIR sauna session.
When all three wavelengths are present in the same sauna cabin, you have a healing powerhouse. Near, mid, and far-infrared function brilliantly together, amplifying each other’s advantages and providing a fantastic detoxification/recovery experience for the user.
If you want to give your infrared sauna a boost, check for the words “Full Spectrum” in the product titles. It’s an excellent investment in your overall wellness that your mind and body will appreciate.
BENEFITS OF FULL-SPECTRUM INFRARED SAUNA
Infrared is a moderate, relaxing, and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and increased sleep, unlike typical saunas, which operate at extremely high temperatures. The benefits of infrared sauna therapy include relaxation while obtaining an exhilarating deep tissue sweat, leaving you feeling completely rejuvenated after each session.
LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE
Infrared saunas cause a deep sweat, which causes the heart to beat quicker, increasing blood flow, lowering blood pressure, and improving circulation. The use of an infrared sauna weekly decreases blood pressure, according to scientific research.
ANTI-AGING & SKIN PURIFICATION
The wavelength of near-infrared light (also known as Red Light Therapy) is the most effective for mending the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near-infrared treatments increase collagen formation, which helps to minimize wrinkles and even out skin tone.
Near-infrared treatment boosts the circulatory system and allows the body’s cells to receive more oxygen. More toxins travel from the cellular level to the skin’s surface with better blood circulation, which improves cell health, aids muscular recovery, and strengthens the immune system.
According to studies, an infrared sauna session can help you burn up to 600 calories as you rest! As the body attempts to cool itself, heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate all rise, causing the body to burn more calories.
From minor aches and pains to chronic pain syndromes like fibromyalgia, infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to provide relief. Pain management practitioners use infrared heat therapy to reduce pain and muscle spasms while speeding up recovery time.
Infrared rays heat the muscles, causing an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular use of an infrared sauna, particularly in the mid-infrared region, can increase blood flow by double its steady pace.
According to scientific study, near-infrared therapy improves the skin’s healing process by boosting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. To heal wounds and avoid infection, human cell development accelerates.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Is it safe to use infrared heat?
All living things are safe and healthy when exposed to infrared heat. It is possible to be exposed to infrared light for hours without burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring sun output that does not contain the damaging UV radiation that exposed sunlight does. Infrared light is utilized by a variety of doctors and is even used in hospitals to warm neonates.
In the sauna, what should I wear?
It is all up to you. The majority of clients like to go in their underwear, while others prefer to wear gym clothes. Towels must be placed on the bench in either case, and shoes are strictly prohibited. The efficiency of your sauna session will not be affected by whether you go naked or wear light clothing.
Is it safe to use an infrared sauna when pregnant?
No. Pregnant women should avoid any therapy that increases their core body pressure. Traditional saunas, steam rooms, and jacuzzis are also affected. Infrared therapy can usually be resumed after birth and while breastfeeding. Please with your doctor before scheduling a session.
