This refers to the deeply penetrating FAR Infrared rays that can only be obtained using a concave solid ceramic emitter.
PRISM-T SOLID CERAMIC EMITTERS
- 100% solid ceramic emitters
- Emitter is concave shaped heater for focused heating. The concave surface will emit a “concentrated” radiant pattern, which is highly effective for zone heating of the sauna
- 96% Infrared Energy Efficient
- Produces infrared rays in the FAR Infrared Spectrum of 5.6 to 15 microns
- 5 year warranty against burnout. (Estimated life in excess of 10,000 operational hours)
SAUNAS PROVIDE A SERIES OF HEALTH BENEFITS:
Heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process.
Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water-soluble and the body sweats out fats and toxins.
During a 10-20 minute sauna session, your heart rate increases by 50-75%. This provides the same metabolic result as physical exercise. The increased cardiac load is the equivalent to a brisk walk. There is a nominal effect on blood pressure because the heat also causes blood vessels in skin to expand to accommodate increased blood flow.
The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) (August 7, 1981) reported what is common knowledge today: Many people who run do so to place a demand on their cardiovascular system as well as to build muscle. What isn’t well known is that it also reported the “regular use of a sauna may impart a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.”
Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) accumulate in the body during modern daily life. The body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating. Heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detoxify the skin. The heat simply speeds up the body’s natural process.
Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system’s healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. The immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. Saunas induce an “artificial fever” by heating up the body but without the pains of an illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the “artificial fever”.
Heat therapy loosens the muscles and relaxes the body. Many massage therapists use heat to provide more thorough and effective treatment.
BENEFIT TO SKIN:
Heat improves circulation, expels dirt & chemicals and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin. This leads to a more soft and clear complexion.
