Healing & Medical Uses

Far Infrared Has The Power To Heal The Human Body

Harness the power of the sun. Far infrared is part of the sun’s invisible light spectrum that is essential to plants, animals and humans. Infrared heat is a form of energy that penetrates the body by warming muscles and tissue directly without heating the intervening air. The body produces infrared energy to keep us warm and repair body tissue. Far infrared energy is radiated through the skin at 3 to 50 microns with the greatest output at 9.4 microns. Occasionally the infrared energy in our body tissue needs a boost to insure healing and tissue repair. The body will selectively absorb infrared to boost a tissue’s infrared energy. This process is called resonant absorption. Far infrared rays are completely safe and are used in hospitals to warm newborn babies.

Benefits Of Far Infrared On The Human Body

The human body also absorbs infrared in the 3 to 50 micron range, The far infrared waves between 6 to 14 microns have proven to have special regenerative effects on the body, with an optimum absorption at the 9.4 micron frequency. TheraSauna® emits the greatest amount of infrared in the 9.4 micron range. When any cell or tissue in the body is exposed to these levels of far infrared heat, response mechanisms stimulate the healing process in the body.

Far Infrared Heat Waves:

  • Dilate blood vessels and capillaries, providing increased flow of rich oxygenated blood to muscles and joints.
  • Reduce muscle spasms and promote healing of injured and sore muscle fibers.
  • Improves flow within the lymphatic system to reduce swelling and inflammation.
  • Stimulates cellular and enzyme activity.
  • Promotes the adhesion and osmosis of water molecules across the cellular membrane

Doctors in Europe and Japan have conducted extensive research on the therapeutic uses of infrared. Far infrared treatments have shown Medical Benefits in a variety of illnesses. Far infrared waves speed removal of toxins from the body, which are often a major contributor to various health problems.

Numerous toxins are absorbed and stored in our bodies. Toxic gases like sulphur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and substances like lead, mercury, and chlorine are encapsulated by large water molecules. When toxins are present in the body, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. The body’s immune system is inhibited, which makes it difficult for the body to fight disease.

However, when 9.4 microns of far infrared are applied, the large water molecules vibrate and breakdown the ion bond to release the encapsulated gases and toxic materials. Far infrared heat has been used in the treatment of clogged capillary vessels; this heat expands the capillaries and skin pores to expel toxins from the body.

Micron Power Select™ allows you to vary the infrared output from each TheraMitter™ zone and control the infrared micron range during your sauna session. TheraMitters™ can be exclusively customized to a surface temperature between approximately 450°F down to an amazing 126°F. This is a extremely useful feature for multiple sauna users. For example, the person on the right can set their back TheraMitters™ on full power and their feet to half power while the person on the left can set their back TheraMitter™ to 80% power and their feet to 60% power. This highly innovative feature allows you to program your sauna to your personal comfort level. The MPS settings can be adjusted from 100% to 7% for each zone. On the MPS Touchview Control screen in "MPS SETUP," you can choose the level for each TheraMitter™. The levels can be set in any combination at 7%, 13%, 20%, 27%, 33%, 40%, 47%, 53%, 60%, 67%, 73%, 80%, 87%, 93%, or 100%.

The SpectraWave™ function is an exclusive feature that allows the sauna to move through a specific infrared spectrum. The sauna’s onboard computer system has 8 different pre-selected power settings and it will scroll through a new setting every 2 minutes. This feature allows TheraSauna® to produce near, middle, and far infrared energy when this feature is utilized. See below for some sample SpectraWave™ power settings:

TheraSaunas® far-infrared is produced during the entire sauna session.  When the sauna reaches temperature, the patented MPS Therasauna® Touchview™ 3.0 idles the TheraMitters™ down to surface temperature of under 230°F. The TheraMitters™ will return to 400°F and above when necessary, keeping a steady temperature and micron range. The far-infrared produced is still consistently reaching the optimal 9.4 micron range for human absorption due to the unique physical design of solid ceramic TheraMitters™, penetrating up to 2” below the skin. This creates an environment where the user receives more infrared in 20 minutes than they would during a 40 minute session in other brand saunas. Therasauna® produces zero cold spots when operating and does not vent plastics and carbon fibers  into the sauna cabinet, unlike our competitors. Carbon saunas only reach the one surface temperature of approximately 230°F and turn off after reaching their set convection air temperature, losing air temperature and creating an ineffective range of infrared. The TheraSauna® Stable Heat™ System does not turn off, but powers down and sends a trickle charge of electricty to maintain the surface temperature of the TheraMitters™, thus consistently reaching the 9.4 micron range of far infrared.

The best example of how TheraSauna's® Stable Heat™ System works in relation to our competitors is to imagine a light switch. If the light switch is flipped on, the light in the room will turn on. The moment the switch is turned off, the light goes out and the room is dark. Infrared is a form of light, just like the visible light in the example, but on a different spectrum that is invisible to the naked eye. TheraSauna's® Stable Heat™ System remains on during the entire sauna session, meaning infrared is produced the entire sauna session, just like turning on the light with the light switch and leaving it on the whole time you are in the room. In a competitor's sauna, the infrared will be produced until the set temperature is reached. The moment the set temperature is reached, infrared immediately stops being produced, just like shutting off the light with the light switch. No more infrared is being produced, just like flipping the light switch to off turns off the light. So, it's much like sitting in a room with the lights on for 40 minutes, but you have to sit in the dark for half of the time. Our Stable Heat™ System prevents this from happening in TheraSauna®, giving the user a clear advantage in the amount of exposure to far infrared.

This patented, 7 Day Programmable Control allows you to set the desired time your sauna will turn on Monday through Sunday. You can set the timer to pre-heat the sauna for you so that it is ready when you get home from work or when you wake up in the morning. Getting into a cold sauna and waiting for it to warm-up is a thing of the past. Just press, set and forget... the TheraSauna® will remember the rest. The onboard computer memory will hold the settings in memory even if the sauna experiences a power failure.
