Infrared heat is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum, which has the ability to gently and comfortably penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits like boosting your immune system. It is a wavelength you would experience as the gentle, penetrating warmth. The same feeling as being in a sunny room on a cold winter’s day.
Combining three heating elements in one sauna heater, the infrared spectrum consists of near (NIR), mid (MIR), and far (FIR) waves, each with distinct characteristics and frequency ranges. NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. MIR helps expand blood vessels and increases circulation, so more oxygen can reach injured areas of the body. This reduces pain and speeds the healing process.
The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. By raising your core body temperature, FIR stimulates the sweat glands, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat that leaves you feeling revitalized.
Ultimately whatever you feel most comfortable in. Ideally, we recommend wearing loose fitting clothing or just shorts for men and comfortable shorts and sports bra for women as you will sweat during and after the session. We will supply you with a Biodegradable towel to sit on and dry yourself with, we do also encourage clients to bring their own towel.
Mindbody Lounge is Perth’s premier Health, Wellness and Peak Performance facility. Our state of the art lounge will see you performing and feeling at your peak from the moment you enter.
Surround yourself in the penetrative power of infrared light. Increase your body’s core temperature to detoxify & increase your metabolism, flexibility, skin health.
Emerge feeling relaxed, reduced soreness, better skin, improved sleep, detoxified your body, relief from joint pain from arthritis, weight loss, improved circulation, lower blood pressure.
The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating.
When using your sauna with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
A general rule of thumb is 1 minute inside your sauna per year of age for the child, but always accompanied by an adult. And remember to keep you and your children hydrated, even if you don’t see them sweating.
Please consult with your physician, as this answer is usually yes, but may be no depending upon you specific circumstances.
Clothing must be worn at all times during your sauna at MBL. Men typically wear workout or swim trunks; women typically wear workout shorts and a tank top or sports bra.
It is completely up to you and your lifestyle. There is no data showing more of a benefit in the morning or evening.
Most people partake in a 30-45 minute session, 3 -4 times a week, but it is safe to use every day and at whatever heat suits you best.
All of our health benefits have been either clinically shown on our heaters or are based on studies of infrared wavelengths that we precisely mimic in our heaters.
Sunlighten saunas are proven up to 99% effective at emitting the highest quality and quantity of infrared heat required for delivery a full range of health benefits.
Infrared Heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants
Infrared heat is very gentle. The experience is similar to lying in the sun on a warm day and feeling the heat radiate to the core of your body.
Unlike traditional (hot rock or steam) saunas–which operate at well in excess of 94°C–infrared heat has the benefit of being effective at a more comfortable operating temperature of 37.7°-65.5°C.
Traditional saunas heat the air vs. the body directly.
Rather than inducing detoxification and relaxation, this can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue vs. simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body.
By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms.
Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature.
When using with the elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
EMF (electric and magnetic fields) are waves of electric and magnetic energy radiating through space. High EMF levels are often associated with power lines.
EMF is everywhere in our homes and offices. The electrical appliances we use (an electric can opener at close range emits substantial EMFs), computers, monitors, keyboards and mice, wireless modems, cordless phones, clock radios, hair dryers, mobile phones, microwave ovens and more – all produce EMFs.
Although the current scientific evidence provides no definitive answers regarding EMF, there is enough uncertainty that some people want to reduce their exposure to EMF. For that reason, we have limited the levels of EMF from our heaters as much as possible.
If you are concerned at all about EMF, our Signature and Solo contain our Ultra Low EMF Solocarbon heaters.
Our exclusive manufacturing process allows us to cancel out EMF to levels that are virtually undetectable
