People have had a love affair with the sauna for thousands of years. Originally developed in Finland as a way to unwind, cleanse the body and relieve stress, these formally room-sized methods of relaxation can now be purchased in convenient, space-saving models. What’s more, new technology – namely, the far infrared sauna – is upping the sauna’s already impressive public image. Let’s take a look at why.
What is Far Infrared Heat?
Though it may sound strange or foreign at first blush, far infrared heat is simply a division of the electromagnet spectrum that has been shown to have some biological benefits beyond the typical heat once used for saunas. The benefits of far infrared heat are still being studied, but some of them are purported to be:
- Anti-aging for the skin.
- Rejuvenation of the body’s cells.
- Detoxification of the body’s overall systems.
- Ridding of germs and bacteria through a manual rise in body temperature.
- Cleansing of the body through sweat.
How Far Infrared Heat Can Be Used In the Home
You don’t have to go to a health clinic or spa to reap the benefits of far infrared sauna heat. Companies like Boca Raton’s Sunny Day Saunas specialize in space-saving and highly efficient saunas built for the home user, all of which use far infrared technology to benefit bathers. Whether you’re looking or anti-aging or detoxification benefits, you can get them right in the comfort of your own home with today’s convenient and comfortable home sauna models.
Of course, if you prefer to enjoy some time away from home to get the sauna experience, you can do that, too. Sunny Days and other sauna retailers also cater to spas, health clubs, hotels and other locations looking to provide an excellent escape to patrons and offer added value to booked rooms and paid experiences.
Whatever you’re looking for in a sauna, insist on one thing above all others. Insist on far infrared heating elements, and get the very best experience from your lounge in the tropical heat.
