What is Far Infrared Sauna? A far infrared sauna produces the invisible band of light called far infrared between 5 and 15microns. The human body emits far infrared light at 9.4 microns in the form of body heat. So, basically in a far infrared sauna environment we are manufacturing body heat. Celebration Saunas has designed our heater technology to emit far infrared light at 9.4 microns 87% of the time to exactly match the far infrared output of the human body.
How does an infrared sauna benefit our bodies? When we apply infrared light to the body we are charging our cells with their own energy. As such, metabolic processes speed up. The body doesn’t have to work as hard to produce the energy needed to maintain itself for its processes. As the body heats up to a mild fever of 99.0 degrees, the temperature our body starts to fight infection, we begin to sweat sparking a passive cardiovascular workout as the body naturally tries to cool itself.
The heart will have to pump harder to help cool the surface of the skin, you will begin to breath heavier as your body will require that you oxygenate the blood circulated at a faster pace throughout your body. The sweating is an important component.
As we begin to sweat we release harmful toxins from the subcutaneous layer of fat through our skin, our bodies no longer have to work as hard to maintain a level of homeostasis. As such people find they lose weight, reduce allergies or hay fever, skin conditions such as acne or psoriasis are greatly improved or cleared altogether. Cancer cells with a heat shock protein of 70 or less die when exposed to infrared light. Residual or Latent viruses, bacteria and toxins from chemotherapy, lead, mercury, uranium, pesticides, drug abuse, nicotine, alcohol are released through the skin unloading the body of the job of having to contain these harmful toxins away from vital organs.
Who does an Infrared Sauna benefit? The infrared sauna benefits everyone from infancy to deathbed. In neonatal units across the United State premature babies who have yet developed enough to maintain their own body temperature are placed in incubators using far infrared light. In the elderly infrared sauna improves circulation, reduces pain, and helps maintain core body temperature for optimal body functioning and improving overall quality of life.
Infrared Sauna treatments have been documented to show improvement for the following diseases and conditions: Mercury Poisoning, Lymes Disease, COPD, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, chemical sensitivity, allergies, weight loss, wound healing, improved immunity, Cancer Therapy, Diabetes, Autism, Acne, Psoriasis, speed in healing time of sore muscles or strained ligaments, Pain Relief, Pain Management, Detoxification, Pretty much any disease that stem from toxicity will be improved when far infrared is applied to the body.
What are the Health Risks?
There are no health risk associated with sauna use unless you have an advanced stage of lupus or multiple sclerosis or other nervous system disease that has affected the body’s natural ability to cool itself. You can never overdose on Infrared light as your body is only capable of absorbing enough for each cell and then it passes on harmless out of the body. Other risks include Dehydration.
What does an infrared sauna feel like? The soft wave of infrared heat that comes over the body has been compared to the relaxing sensation of a deep tissue massage without the pressure. You will literally feel your muscles loosen and relax.
How is a Celebration Sauna constructed?
What sauna woods are used in construction? All our saunas are made from Grade A Canadian Hemlock that is free from knots. All our wood is specially kiln dried for durability in the sauna environment. This process not only prevents cracking, splintering, bowing and breaking of the wood over time, the kiln drying process also burns away oils and resins in the wood that could outgas during sauna use.
Biophotonic Heating Panels: Our infrared heaters are made using flexible nano-carbon and other proprietary materials to produce infrared light at a bandwidth of 5-15 microns. All infrared heaters emit a bandwidth of 5-15 microns. Our Biophotonic infrared technology has narrowed that bandwidth so that 85% of all infrared light emitted from our heating elements is 9.4 microns to match the human bodies identical infrared micron output of 9.4. All our carbon heating panels have a lifespan of 20,000 hours. Which boils down to an hour a day for 50 years.
Safety & EMF Shielding: All our saunas are equipped with EMF shielding and have ETL and CE safety certifications. Most saunas include radio/cd/mp3, chromo-therapy lighting, reading lights, interior/ exterior digital soft touch control panels, outdoor lighting, oxygen ionizer, towel rack, Backrest, cup holders.
What is the Warranty? Industry-leading lifetime warranty. All our saunas come with a 7-year limited lifetime manufacturer warranty and an extended lifetime warranty through Celebration Saunas. We will facilitate any warranty claims and replace all electronic components free of charge and we pay for the shipping. We provide a lifetime warranty on all electronic components and the Biophotonic infrared heating elements, which are designed to last 20,000 hours – or the equivalent to 1 hour a day for 50 years.
How will my sauna ship? All saunas ship Free of Charge from our California Warehouse wrapped and palletized for your Freight Carrier. Depending on your location in the country your sauna will be delivered within 7-14 days of your order. Your Freight Carrier will call you to schedule an appointment which you have 3 days to accept without incurring storage fees. When the sauna arrives it will come on a lift gate truck. The lift gate will lower your palletized sauna to the ground and the driver will use a pallet jack to move the sauna off the street. Writing NOTATING the delivery receipt with any packaging damage or wear and tear prior to signing your delivery receipt, protects your investment.
Note: We never recommend anyone try to carry the boxes. It is recommended that you break down the pallet and the sauna boxes outside and bring each sauna panel in 1 at a time. This makes for quick light work.
Where do infrared saunas go? Infrared saunas have found many homes in residences, in medical offices, massage or chiropractic offices and every medical specialist that focuses on detoxification or heart therapy, pain management, lymes disease or obesity. Saunas can be found in luxury hotels, health spas, health clubs and medical facilities all around the world. Your sauna can be placed on any indoor surface out of the weather. We have saunas located on cement garage and basement floors, tile, wood and carpet.
How long will it take to assemble my sauna? Assembly for our 2 Person Saunas take only an hour and for larger saunas up to an hour and a half. All Saunas plug into a standard 15amp or 20amp circuit.
How much will it cost to run my sauna? All Celebrations Saunas are Energy efficient and depending on your location and current rates it costs approximately $0.25 to run per hour.
How to maintain your sauna? The best way to maintain your sauna is to run your oxygen ionizer for 30 minutes prior to or after your sauna session. The oxygen ionizer emits ionized oxygen molecules that binds with all positively charged particles in your sauna like bacteria, viruses, mold and dust neutralizing them and dropping them to the floor. You should consider vacuuming your sauna once a month. Over time you may see the appearance of sweat stains on your bench. Although you can NEVER use chemicals on the interior of your sauna. You can use a vinegar and water solution to wipe down the interior wood. The best way to prevent sweat stains is by putting towels down on the bench and floor to catch the sweat.
What should I do when using a sauna?
Hydration: It is important to note that you should be well hydrated before going into a sauna. It is important that your daily intake of water increases for sauna use. It is recommended that you drink half your body weight in ounces each day for optimal sauna sessions and detoxification. It is also important to hydrate before, during and after your sauna session.
Electrolyte Replacement: It’s important that you replace your electrolytes like, salt, magnesium, and potassium through food, drinks or supplements.
What is the best temperature to run my sauna and how long should my sauna session be? When first starting your sauna session keep your temperature lower. 125 degrees to 135 degrees is the optimal temperature for sauna health benefits. You should start with 15 minute increments and work up to 30 minutes. You should never use a sauna for more than 60 minutes. Once you begin to sweat, you will find that you sweat more profusely when you wipe it away with a towel. If you feel faint, lightheaded, dizzy, listen to your body and get out of the sauna.
How often should I use my sauna? It is recommended that an adult in good health can use the infrared sauna approximately 3 times per week for 30 minutes. Although it is safe to use your sauna more often for longer durations be sure to listen to your body and hydrate properly.
