Why Infrared And What Is Infrared?
Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion.
The infrared is divided into 3 segments by wavelengths, measured in microns; HM-NSE1 0.76~1.5 microns-near; 1.5~5.6 microns-middle; 5.6~1000 microns-far infrared.
Among these segments, only far infrared penetrates organic substances such as the human body two to three inches so that the warming effect is very uniform.
Health Mate Sauna’s exclusive Tecoloy infrared heaters radiate this far infrared to safely and effectively warm your body.
Health Mate Sauna Vs Conventional Saunas
Conventional saunas transfer heat by circulating hot air, thereby warming your body from your head down, the far infrared heat rays warm your body directly. This allows an in-depth heat in a more pleasant temperature of 110 – 150°F (43 – 66°C ), thus providing more health benefits and a highly enjoyable and comfortable environment.
Conventional saunas need high air temperatures to pull impurities from the body, but infrared heated saunas can directly penetrate up to 45 mm inside the body. Impurities can be pushed out using lower and more comfortable temperatures.
