Infrared Sauna

Sauna is a room or place that is designed to produce heat to make the body perspire, which opens the pores and leaves the body glowing after a cold shower. Sauna used either as a therapy for health or just relaxation. People can go to the fitness center/gym that offer a sauna as part of its services or have them personally.

There are two types of sauna, traditional sauna and infra red sauna. Traditional sauna warm air in the room while the infra red sauna use a variety of materials for heating the object/user directly.
In a traditional sauna typically the water temperature runs between 169 to 190 ° F (76 to 88 ° C). Traditional sauna use various types of heaters to warm the air and stones in a room. Hot air will causes the body heat up, open pores and eventually produce sweat. In wet sauna water is thrown to the stone to make steam.
Recently,with advances in technology, infrared saunas increasingly become attractive. Infra red sauna use of variety heater types the steel incoloy rods and ceramics (older technology) and the newer technology is using carbon heater. Heaters created infrared waves that heat user's body directly. The temperature is much cooler than traditional sauna, its around 110 to 140 ° F (43 to 54 ° C).
From many literature that i read infrared sauna claimed save and beneficial. They claiming that the infrared heat penetrates more than 1.5 inches (40 mm) into the body. The argument is based on the idea that the wavelengths of far infrared waves are typically between 5.8 and 1000 micrometers. This is supposed to correspond to the vibration of the water molecule at 9.4 micrometers. Because these vibrations are similar, say promoters, the infrared rays help knock toxins loose from fat cells into the body, and those toxins are then released through sweating. They claim this heals and stimulates tissues, and that it is effective therapy for arthritis and tissue injuries.
Infrared sauna may provide benefit to patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. A pilot study involving the use of infrared sauna over a 4-week period resulted in short-term improvement regarding pain and stiffness, reduction in fatigue, and a trend towards long-term beneficial effects.
How about the price? there are many different infrared sauna brand with various price. For personal type the price range between $2000 to $4000. That is cheap or to expensive? I don't have any idea about it. But if you wanna have relaxation experience as well as get healthy benefit, you should try it.
