Infrared heat does not require high temperatures because the infrared radiation, an electromagnetic wave radiation, passes through the room completely without loss and without heating the surrounding air. As with the thermal energy of the sun's rays, infrared thermal radiation only becomes effective when it hits an absorbing, i.e. heat-absorbing body such as a human being. The body molecules are caused to vibrate and produce a variety of positive effects.

A portion of our natural sunlight.

In the sunlight spectrum, infrared lies between visible light, with wavelengths between 340 nm and 780 nm, and microwaves, which start at 1 mm. There are different types of infrared radiation, which are divided into three groups. Infrared A (IR-A) with 780 nm to 1400 nm wavelength, Infrared B (IR-B) with 1400 nm to 3000 nm and Infrared C (IR-C) with 3000 nm to 1 mm wavelength. The shorter the wavelength, the deeper the radiation can penetrate the skin.

Heat treatments have been a principle of physical medicine for centuries.

Intensive infrared heat is often used in medicine because certain areas of the body can be treated very specifically. Infrared heat is also used, for example, for heated beds in the premature baby ward and for massages. Through improved methods and  Due to technical advances, infrared is now used in the field of wellness and in the medical field to prevent or treat pain. Infrared heat is used to treat musculoskeletal diseases in particular.

At the beginning of the 1980s, the idea came to combine the sauna with infrared treatment and create something unique:the infrared sauna. Here the infrared effect is concentrated in a small space and the optimal heating effect is achieved through standardized control settings in order to benefit from the manyAdvantages of infrared to benefit. In his book, Prof. Ledwina writes about climatic conditions and how they influence our lives. He recommends that anyone who suffers from environmental toxins or stress should relax at least once a day for 30 minutes in a climate that is favorable for them. It is important that the ambient temperature is not too high, like in a conventional sauna, so that the heart and circulation are not put under too much strain. Infrared can therefore be used very well if, for example, you have a cold coming on or your immune system is too weakened to go to the sauna.

Heat prevents and reduces pain by relaxing the muscles. If the temperature of the heated body parts exceeds the body's core temperature of 36.9 degrees, blood circulation increases and the overheated areas can cool down again.

 

The improved blood circulation leads to better oxygen supply, which accelerates regeneration and the healing process. In addition, carbon dioxide is transported away and the metabolic process is stimulated.​

Infrared is versatile - especially in combination with your sauna as  
2 in 1 combination cabin.

Sauna and infrared are two completely different forms of bathing. When you take a sauna you sweat quickly and a lot - triggered by the high ambient temperature. Infrared, on the other hand, is deep heat. You should therefore always choose one form of bathing and never do both at the same time. The nice thing is that you can easily integrate an infrared seat or an infrared lounger into your new (or even your existing) sauna.
