Fir stands for far infrared ray or radiation and is often referred to as the light of life for its importance in growth and nature. Around 80% of the suns rays fall within this spectrum of light. Far infrared heat is renowned for its energizing and deeply penetrative powers.
Using a FIR dry sauna is advantageous as far infrared rays tend to heat objects rather than the air in between. As a result sweating can occur at lower air temperatures than when using other kinds of sauna appliance such as steam. Dry FIR saunas are also convenient as there’s no need to worry about creating a damp humid environment.
The thermal effect of the FIR heat can accelerate metabolic processes including detoxification. It can also dilate blood vessels and improve the flow of oxygenated blood to tissues.
Some of the reported uses and benefits of taking a FIR sauna include skin cleansing, detoxification, slimming, cardiovascular training, improving circulation, and promoting relaxation.
Functions and Features
The sauna has carbon fibre heating panels to the sides and back along with a heated footpad
Around 90 % of the FIR heat generated is within the 3 – 15 micron range. This is the most beneficial wavelength to human health as it matches that of human cells. Subsequently a process called ‘resonant absorption’ occurs which has a vibrating and energizing effect within cells when the thermal energy is absorbed.
With Far infrared heat, high perspiration levels can be achieved.
