Why Purchase An Affordable Personal Infrared Sauna?

Why Purchase An Affordable Personal Infrared Sauna?

Posted by

Many people affiliate saunas with spas and leisure centers, but luckily innovative companies, such as JNH Lifestyles, will bring a personal infrared sauna to everybody’s home in a low-cost, efficient and convenient manner.

What Does A Personal Infrared Sauna Do?

First of all, as the name suggests the sauna is all yours. So, there is no waiting in a queue or scheduling an appropriate time when you can go in to use the sauna. Use it whenever and with whoever you’d like. In general, why are infrared saunas so great? They make you sweat efficiently, without the high heat of a traditional sauna.

Why Should Our Bodies Sweat?

The act of sweating has always had a stigma as something negative our bodies do when they begin to overheat. Although nobody considers sweating to be a good time, it’s highly beneficial for the body. Sweating is the way the body naturally detoxes. It supports the elimination of toxins, mercury and other harmful metals.

Studies have shown that sweat from a traditional sauna was up to 97% water, while the sweat released in a personal infrared sauna was only 80 - 85% water. The leftover 15 - 25% consisted of heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia, uric acid and fat-soluble toxins. This process not only cleanses toxins from fat cells, including chemical residues, it's also essential in the destruction of cancer cells since they start to regress when the malignant tissue attains 104°F -106°F.

What Is The Difference Between Near And Far Infrared?

When you are researching the various in house sauna’s, you will most likely come across the terms ‘near infrared’ and ‘far infrared’. They can be difficult to understand so you probably won’t pay attention to them, but they are very important factors when deciding on a personal sauna.

First and foremost, infrared heat is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum, which gently and easily penetrates human tissue to give rise to many health benefits such as boosting the body’s immune system. Infrared heat naturally occurs in the Sun and is the foundation of an infrared sauna. Each form of infrared wavelength supports a unique holistic approach to stimulate an improved mind and body. Find out the differences of near infrared to far infrared, and each one can benefit your mind and body.

Near Infrared

This type of infrared is called near because it’s the closest bandwidth of infrared light near the visible light spectrum. Near-infrared light is all around us as we get on with our everyday lives. It comes from the Sun, and we even use it to control our tv or mouse remotely.

The Sun emits almost half of its total energy in the near infrared spectrum. The body is biologically wired to use near-infrared energy, as much as sunlight is required to generate vitamin D. The human body needs this energy from sunlight in order to survive and thrive.

Near-infrared light is effective at regenerating and revitalizing the skin, increasing the core body temperature, improving circulation and can support pain relief.

Far Infrared

On the other side of the infrared spectrum is Far infrared. It’s called far because it is quite far away from visible light. The only way of knowing that far infrared light is around you is that you sense the heat that it releases. In the mid-1950s, Japanese doctors were using far infrared saunas as a treatment for many ailments.

It has taken some time for infrared saunas to put their foot in the sauna industry door but its popularity in the last few decades is because of its proven health benefits and detoxification abilities. Additionally, Far infrared is used in hospitals to support premature babies to regulate their body temperature and treat diseases such as cancer, diabetes, weight loss, cardiovascular health and Lyme parasite.

Far infrared sauna therapy heats up the body directly instead of warming up the air like a traditional sauna does. Heating the body straightaway helps to raise the core body temperature and produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at a cellular level where most toxins exist. When the body sweats, it pushes out toxins, cleanses the body and rejuvenates the skin.

What Are The Health Benefits?

The whole point of an infrared sauna is to enjoy the miraculous health benefits it offers. Here are a few important ones to expect from your personal infrared sauna.


Although near and far infrared systems have the ability to detoxify the body, they each do it in their own unique way. Near-infrared wavelengths give a topical remedy for skin issues and shallow body pain. The aftereffect is less powerful than what you’ll experience when using far-infrared wavelengths.

Far infrared wavelengths can detoxify the body seven times more effectively than traditional sauna units. This is due to the fact that they help the body produce heavy and natural sweating that transports harmful elements out of the body.


Apart from health benefits, people use a sauna for its relaxation effects. Infrared saunas, specifically far infrared heating units, encourage relaxation by controlling the body’s cortisol levels - a hormone in the body that balances stress. An infrared sauna helps muscles to relax, loosen up and rejuvenate.

Weight Loss

Based on an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association named the “Effects of Sweating,” researchers came to the conclusion that a 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn about 600 calories.

Near-infrared wavelengths are good at raising your core body temperature to burn calories.

Far infrared wavelengths stimulate the body’s metabolism, lowers cortisol levels and slightly boosts Human Growth Hormone levels to support weight loss. As a result of far infrared sauna units being more effective at increasing the body’s core temperature and safely increasing heart rate, they can burn a lot more calories than near-infrared wavelengths or a traditional sauna.

Many infrared sauna experts will all agree that if you want to get maximum therapeutic benefits during your sauna sessions, you should go for an infrared sauna unit that offers all three spectrums. They are referred to as Full Spectrum saunas and provide near, mid and far-infrared wavelengths.
