Infrared Sauna – Therapy & Detox
Mind Body and Flow offers its clients the cutting-edge technology of infrared heat. An infrared sauna serves a variety of detoxification functions, targeting release through the largest organ of the human body–your skin. Our FAR Infrared Sauna has a unique delivery system will help you achieve sweating at a more comfortable temperature than conventional dry or steam saunas. This infrared sauna promotes a hyperthermic state that can increase heart rate and circulation, relieve sinus pressure and congestion, enhance metabolism and strengthen immune function. The FAR infrared sauna has also been shown to accelerate removal of heavy metals, petrochemicals and drug residue from the body.
Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional Saunas
A conventional sauna must rely on indirect means of heat, via convection (air currents) and conduction (direct contact of hot air with the skin) to produce its healing effect on our bodies. In this type of system, over 80% of the energy heats the air, leaving less than 20% available to be directly converted to heat within our bodies. In an Infrared Thermal System, energy is primarily converted to heat in the body and not to create excessively hot air, which only heats the skin superficially.
In addition, infrared saunas use radiant energy that can directly penetrate the body’s tissues to a depth of over 1.5 inches. The energy output of this type of sauna is tuned to correspond very closely to the body’s own radiant energy. As a result, our bodies absorb as much as 93% of the infrared waves that reach our skin.
Thus an infrared based system can warm its user to a much greater depth and much more efficiently than a conventional sauna. This crucial difference explains many of the benefits reported through an infrared thermal sauna not attainable through the use of a conventional sauna.
