WHY USE a
CARBON FAR INFRARED vs. Traditional Sauna?
Why do we offer ONLY premium Carbon Fiber far infrared heated saunas
and not Ceramic or Traditional saunas?
Ceramic may be less expensive, it is older technology, the heating
elements create uncomfortable hotspots, and the elements do not last as
long, so warranties are not as robust.
saunas equate to a much larger monthly power bill, needing 220/240v
power. Also, almost always an electrician is needed to install the a new
electric circuit which can cost an extra $500 to $3000. Traditional
saunas also take 2 to 3 times longer to heat up and the purchase cost is
2 to 5 times more than our far infrared Carbon heated saunas, also they
do not give off the far infrared rays of light that have been clinically
proven to aid in improving many health related issues brought on from
carrying toxins in our system throughout our life.
I like to use a
new car purchase as an example to help show the differences: There are many different types
of cars out there, and when getting one, you almost always take into
consideration other factors besides price. One, is the
relationship between going fast and getting good gas mileage. Most all
cars that go fast get poor gas mileage and most cars that get good gas
mileage are not that fast. It is very hard to design a car that gets
good gas mileage and goes fast as well.
Think going uphill in a Ferrari vs. a Prius.
Good Gas Mileage is like Emissivity
Emissivity : This is a term that is used in the sauna industry to
explain why one type of heating element is better than another. It is
the relative ability of a surface of an object to emit energy by
radiation. The closer to the natural state of an object, the higher or
more efficient the Emissivity rate. In our case 98.6�
F The problem
arises when trying to sweat which raises the body to temperatures
higher than 98.6� F, thus
reducing the emissivity rate.
Certain 100% ceramic
heating elements do have a slightly better emissivity rate, but only marginally
so and the heating elements create hotspots in the sauna, think
of an old in-wall bathroom heater with the glowing orange heating coils,
which is uncomfortable and annoying when standing too close to it. Also, hotspots mean that you are
only getting the maximum benefits of a sauna session if you are directly
in the path of a Ceramic Heater. Sauna Health Store Carbon fiber
heating elements also have a great emissivity rate and put out a
soothing even heat without hotspots, the far infrared energy is evenly
distributed throughout the sauna. This gives you a much better, and even
heating session, which makes a Sauna Health Store sauna much more
enjoyable to use.
How do far infrared sauna sessions remove toxins from our body?
The best answer is through a process called resonance.
It has been proven
that a 9.4 Micron wavelength is best for resonance of molecules in the
human body. This wavelength of infrared heat is important to get the
most benefits from a far infrared sauna session.
Actually 9.4microns is the resonance wavelength of
water. We as
humans emit far infrared waves from 5.4microns to about 20microns in
length naturally. [Sauna Health Store Saunas emit wavelengths from
5.6microns to about 15microns, within the realm of the human body.] The
main reason 9.4 is such a Magic number is because our bodies are made
up of over 70% water, this becomes clearer when talking about
resonation, because it causes the molecules in your body to actually
vibrate. This in turn releases toxins that are stored in your fat cells
and other cells in your body and allows them to be excreted in sweat,
kidneys, liver and your digestive track.
Side Note: Our body is constantly eliminating toxins by filtering them
through our blood via the kidneys, liver, spleen, pancreas, lungs and
skin. Also, toxins are eliminated via our digestive track.
What our body cannot eliminate gets stored away from our vital organs,
to protect them, mainly in fat cells. This is the reason that far
infrared heat therapy has a unique affect of removing toxins that cannot
be removed by conventional means. Sauna Health Store Saunas do this by
actually penetrating through the skin to resonate the inner areas of our
bodies and help break up and flush out the toxins through our
Back to my car example: ~Traditional Sauna Heaters: Poor Gas Mileage but goes Fast.
~FIR Ceramic Heaters: Good Gas Mileage and can go just a little bit
faster than Carbon Heaters but this
depends on the type of ceramic heaters used there are a number of different
types and the
technology is older.
~Carbon Heaters: Great Gas Mileage and goes Very Fast. [This is the
best choice when putting all the
~Jogging or other aerobic activity: Extremely Good Gas Mileage but goes
Many times. Faster is not better,
just more costly: That is why we have speed limits.
Why own a car that goes 200 miles per hour when all you need is one that
goes a fraction of that, & you get the benefits of a lower price and great fuel economy as well. J
This is just one of the
many reasons to get a Sauna Health Store far infrared
CARBON fiber heated sauna and I believe is the most important of
