INFRA-RED SAUNAS

Sauna & Decks For Africa is proud to introduce our Range of Imported Infrared Saunas to the South African Market.

Infrared heat has some distinct advantages over traditional steam heat saunas. Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat is a completely safe form of naturally occurring energy that heats objects by a process called direct light conversion. Radiant heat is also called infrared heat or infrared energy. Direct light conversion warms only the object & does not raise the temperature of the surrounding free air. This type of energy travels 2-3" deep into the body & is thought by some to increase circulation & nourish damaged tissue.

Infrared heaters warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. FIR heat therapy uses the wavelength of the visible & non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally.

Traditional steam saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. FIR saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, FIR saunas heat the body directly. The result is a lower energy consumption & deeper tissue penetration. In the FIR sauna, the body perspires & receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna. FIR saunas are safe for all ages.

An Infrared Sauna will heat up in a shorter time period than a steam sauna because it can heat the skin directly & does not need to heat the air.

FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate & reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes bloods vessels & capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, & the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins & metabolic wastes through sweating.

Health Benefits of an Infrared Sauna:

The health benefits of a FIR Infrared Sauna are numerous. Saunas are often used in the treatment of diseases & drug addictions, as well as for general therapy & well being. Some of the benefits include:
