The practice of bathing in heat for health and purification goes back many centuries for relaxing, detoxing, and healing the body. Sweating is one of your body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health.
You might be familiar with steam rooms and traditional saunas that heat the air to raise the temperature inside the sauna. They can be unbearably hot, steamy rooms in which breathing is difficult.
But infrared saunas use infrared spectrums to heat your body from the inside out. With an infrared sauna, the heat is dry and the temperature in the room is lower, which is more comfortable, but the infrared light is able to deeply penetrate your tissues, helping you sweat faster.
Infrared saunas use light to create heat. Sitting in an infrared sauna is like sitting under the sun, enjoying the soothing warmth for the healing, anti-aging, and health-optimizing benefits. With an infrared sauna you get the positives of the sun without the negatives of UV radiation.
Healthy, Healing Heat
Kare Health & Wellness is proud to offer two different types of sauna sessions. Both of our saunas utilize comforting, healing infrared heat.
Our cabin unit, the Sunlighten mPulse, is our 3-in-1 infrared sauna option. This unit uses full-spectrum 3-in-1 infrared technology that you experience seated in an upright, personal sauna cabin.
Our second sauna option is the Sunlighten Solo system. This unit utilizes far-infrared for a very targeted approach. This infrared sauna is experienced laying down on a comfortable infrared pad enveloped by a dome of far-infrared heat.
The natural, immune-supporting benefits of infrared saunas are impressive. A 1% increase in your body’s temperature results in a 40% increase in immunity, as shown by doctors who have studied cancer and heat therapy.
Studies have also shown that athletes who took a 15 minute sauna session experienced an immediate increase in white blood cells, the first line of attack for the immune system. We also know that stress depletes our natural immune system. Infrared saunas are highly effective in reducing stress levels. The comforting heat helps to quiet your mind and release feel-good endorphins.
Full-spectrum 3-in-1 infrared saunas have the entire infrared spectrum: near-infrared, mid-infrared, and far infrared. Each spectrum produces different healing responses:
- Near-infrared. The shortest infrared wavelength. Helps with wound healing, cellular repair, and skin renewal.
- Mid-infrared. Longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper. Helps with inflammation and speeds up healing.
- Far-infrared. This wavelength is closest to the heat given off by your body. It reaches deep into the body, where toxins are stored.
Our 3-in-1 sauna blends the optimal wavelengths—near, mid, and far— as well as power and output to achieve specific results. Six preset wellness programs are ready to use at the touch of a button.
Our far infrared sauna detox program is specifically designed to promote a deep, healthy and natural detoxifying sweat. Your body needs to sweat. We ingest and retain toxins every day, from the air we breathe to the food we consume. In the past, we’d sweat these toxins out while performing physical labor.
But with our sedentary lifestyles and the comforts of modern air conditioning, none of sweat as much as we need to.
The fundamental benefit of an infrared sauna is the unique ability to detoxify dead skin cells, oils, dirt, bacteria, and other toxic substances including heavy metals, many of which can lead to a variety of diseases down the road.
In our sauna detox, your core body temperature is heated a few degrees, rather than heating the ambient air around you to draw out toxins. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more you’ll expel from your skin and body. An infrared sauna can be one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat.
Our infrared saunas also help you lose weight by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort. Infrared sauna weight loss sessions have been shown to burn up to 600 calories.
During a sauna weight loss session, your core temperature increases. The body has to work harder to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using an infrared sauna increases your heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories and leading to more weight loss. And your blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.
Through the use of cutting-edge Solocarbon® heating technology, our infrared saunas deliver the most therapeutic infrared sauna heat per square inch (up to 99% efficient), so that you can be enveloped in soothing warmth to help you relieve stress, ease your muscles and fully relax.
Our infrared saunas allow you to relax your body and relax your mind. Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction. Alone time can also provide the opportunity to reflect and move on from the stressors of the day. Relax and reduce mental stress with sauna sessions as part of your wellness routine.
Our far-infrared saunas replicate a cardiovascular workout, because they raise your heart rate and increase circulation. We call this “passive cardio.” Your heart is a muscle and working it makes it stronger.
A stronger cardiovascular system helps your capillaries deliver more oxygen to the cells in your muscles. For people with injuries or conditions that preclude them from cardio activity, our saunas can help serve as an alternative for needed cardio benefits.
Our far-infrared saunas have been clinically shown to provide one of the best, natural ways to help temporarily lower blood pressure. A cardiovascular sauna session dilates your blood vessels, reduces the volume of their inner lining and increases the circulation needed for healthy blood pressure.
Studies have also shown that far-infrared sauna therapy is both safe and effective at improving clinical symptoms and cardiac function as well as decreasing cardiac size in chronic heart failure patients. Repeat sessions are particularly helpful for patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.
Our far-Infrared saunas not only improve the appearance of acne scarring, but can help active breakouts as well. Sweating induced from the infrared heat will clean out clogged pores. When your sauna session is complete, a quick face wash ensures those unclogged pores do not clog up again.
Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as dead skin cells, oils, dirt and bacteria. Our SoloCarbon technology in our far-infrared saunas heats your body to the core, triggering your body to release toxins that can clog your pores and lead to a host of health issues within your skin and beyond. Far-infrared sauna treatments also increase collagen and elastin in our skin which enhances skin texture and color.
Appearance of Scars
Near-infrared light therapy from our saunas increases circulation and delivery of oxygen to injured or damaged areas helps with cell turnover, which helps with the appearance of scars. It also significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing, and human tissue growth.
Pain Relief and Muscle Recovery
Heat is great for recovery, temporary pain relief and inflammation. However, infrared light, because it heats the body from within, can penetrate further down into the joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and blood flow.
Good circulation is critical for proper healing. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the site of the strain or inflammation, which helps to create new blood vessels and tissues at the site. The more red and white blood cells that can get delivered to muscles, the quicker they rebuild.
The patented Solocarbon® far infrared heaters used in our saunas have been found to be 99% effective in terms of far-infrared absorption into the body. There are many studies that show how the three wavelengths of near, mid and far can help with muscle recovery and performance.
