What are chromotherapy lights?
Chromotherapy (“light therapy”) is the application of visible light, the colour spectrum, to aid in the purpose of tissue regeneration and healing. Light is electromagnetic radiation (energy emitted as particles or waves) and each colour of the spectrum has a unique wavelength that has a different impact on our bodies.
This is a sauna that engages FAR Infrared light to heat the body in an enclosed cabin. FAR infrared rays are emitted from heaters within the sauna. Infrared light is the invisible light which is part of the sun’s spectrum. As humans our visible spectrum goes from red to violet, with the beautiful colours of the rainbow being red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The infra-red meaning is “below-red” like ultraviolet (UV) means “above-violet. Our infrared saunas use the far part of the infrared spectrum.
NASA discovered in the mid-1960’s that FAR waves was an effective way to maintain cardiovascular health and conditioning for astronauts during long space flights. Medical doctors and the infrared society as a whole continues to research and support the many health benefits of FAR infrared saunas as a wonderful method of healing.
No. Infrared sauna is completely safe. JNH Saunas use radiant energy (same as produced by the sun) to the heat the body, not the room. Our infrared heating technology does not include any harmful UV rays.
Many sauna users have medical conditions that have improved from frequent sauna sessions. Sauna users have experienced the benefits of lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, detoxifying the body from medications and toxins, reducing and improving acne, weight loss, the ease of aching muscles, improving skin tone and appearance, speeding the healing process of bruises and cuts, reducing stress, better sleep, and cardiovascular conditioning. We always recommend that you consult your doctor before beginning a sauna session.
Traditional saunas use heaters to warm the air and stones within the sauna room. The heat source attains high temperatures which in turn heats the air in the sauna. Most modern saunas are controlled by a thermostat to produce high temperatures. The air in these traditional saunas run between 169 ° to 190 ° F. The body heats up as the hot air fills the room which results in a sweat. These temperatures are extremely high and it is recommended that the session be no longer that 15 minutes. Our infrared saunas use a heater that creates infrared waves that heat the body directly. The infrared rays are the same rays that come from the sun without the UV radiation. The rays penetrate the skin deeply without heating up the air in the room. The temperature within the infrared sauna is around 110 ° to 140 ° F. The lower temperatures allow for longer sauna sessions providing you the opportunity to sweat more.
We put your safety and satisfaction first at all times. We maintain the highest standards in the industry. Our manufacturing facility conforms to industry standards.
Are there age restrictions for infrared sauna use?
Pregnant women and children under the age of 5 years old should avoid infrared saunas. Children under the age of 18 should always be accompanied by an adult. Users with any medical conditions should always consult their physicians prior to using a sauna.
