Infrared Sauna – How it works
Far infrared is the most healing and beneficial part of the sun’s energy.
- Gamma , shortest rays, most destructive to life
- X-ray = penetrate tissue, carcinogenic
- Ultraviolet = sunburn, corneal and lens damage
- Visual wavelength
- Infrared majority of sun energy and most vital to healing
Conventional saunas need high air temperatures to pull impurities from the body, but infrared saunas heat the tissues 45mm deep, enhancing metabolic processes and facilitate healing. Impurities can be pushed out using lower and more comfortable temperature.
Sweating helps to detoxify your body, by removing the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium and cholesterol.
Profuse perspiration deeply cleanses the skin, creating beautiful and improved tone, texture, and colour. Raising body temperature causes infections to heal more quickly. Our bodies develop fever when ill to intensify metabolism and help kill germs.
The Detox Box uses far infrared rays to provide gentle and deep penetrating heat to the body to induce a high volume of sweat at a very comfortable temperature of around 40-50 degrees Celsius. In The Detox Box, you will sweat 2-3 times more than in a traditional sauna but at half the temperature. Now you can sweat away – whilst in a very comfortable and relaxing temperature.
If you have used conventional saunas and found it hard to tolerate high temperatures involved you should come in and experience infrared technology to obtain all the benefits at the much lower temperatures.

If you take a 30-minute sauna in The Detox Box, you perspire the same amount as if you had run 10 kilometres.
Research suggests that cellulite becomes water soluble at 43°C. This gel-like substance which is made up of fat, water and waste products can be sweated away.
Far Infrared Sauna stimulates the lymphatic system, separating toxins from the cells they are stored in. This makes it easier to eliminate them. Also helps move lymph fluid, which strengthens the immune system and enhances detoxification.
