Before we can dive into what an infrared home sauna is, let’s first take a closer look at infrared wavelengths.
A combination of visible and invisible light is produced by the sun. One of the invisible spectrums is known as infrared rays. These invisible infrared wavelengths are what help the rays of sunlight to provide warmth.
It has been widely proven that infrared wavelengths can be beneficial to the human body, as they can help to increase thermal energy throughout the body, without rays from the sun that can have harmful effects depending on the exposure.
The three main categories of the infrared spectrum include:
Although near infrared is the shortest wavelength, it actually penetrates the deepest. This is due to a property that isn’t captured by water within the human body, enabling it to offer the deepest penetration and ultimately increase your core thermal energy.
Unlike near infrared, mid infrared wavelengths are captured by water molecules. They can lead to a number of health benefits by temporarily increasing your circulation through vasodilation. The health improvements can include improved blood flow and overall metabolism.
Far infrared wavelengths show the most similarity to the infrared heat produced by the human body. It can be easily captured by water molecules in the body before releasing energy. The human body can produce far infrared wavelengths at about 9.4 microns, which is why they feel quite natural and normal to us. Many find that they experience improved and strengthened energy levels after being exposed to far infrared heat through a sauna.
Jacuzzi® Infrared Saunas differ from traditional saunas because they don’t utilize hot rocks or steam to heat the unit. Instead, they are equipped with a range of advanced features that help to create and maintain quality infrared heat. This process warms the body from the inside out, resulting in an array of lasting health benefits.
