What Is Far Infrared Sauna (FIR Sauna)?

Detoxify using your body’s largest eliminative organ – the skin. 30 minutes in the FIR sauna is equivalent to the same calories burnt in a 7km jog.

  • What is Far Infrared heater technology?

Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion.

The infrared is divided into 3 segments by wavelengths, measured in microns; 0.76~1.5 microns-near;1.5~5.6 microns-middle;5.6~1000 microns-far infrared. Among these segments, only far infrared penetrates organic substances such as the human body two to three inches so that the warming effect is very uniform. 
Infrared heater technology is completely healthy and safe for all living things.

  • How does it work?

Whereas conventional saunas transfer heat by circulating hot air, thereby warming your body from your head down, the far infrared heat rays warm your body directly. This allows an in-depth heat in a more pleasant temperature of 110- 138°F (43 - 60°C ) , thus providing more health benefits and a highly enjoyable and comfortable environment.

 Detoxification

Far Infrared Rays penetrate 4cm into the human body causing body cells to vibrate and increase metabolism. This causes toxins in the cells to drop off into the bloodstream and be removed through sweating. Analysis of the sweat will show that sweat from FIR Sauna contains 80-85% water and 15-20% toxins from heavy metal like lead, cadmium, copper and pesticides. Toxins in sweat from conventional sauna comprise 97% water and only 3% toxins.

Assists in Weight Loss

It takes 0.57 kcal to produce 1 gram of sweat. A regular person using B4ITHAPPENS FIR Cabin for 30 minutes a day can produce over 1,000 grams of sweat burning over 600 kcal, equivalent to running over 8km. Fat becomes water soluble at 38°c and is removed from the body through sweat. The water lost is easily regained by drinking water but the calories can only be regained by consuming equivalent amount of calories. As such, with no change in diet and daily use of the FIR Cabin, more calories are burnt leading to weight loss.

Helps Clear Cellulite

FIR rays can penetrate 4cm into the skin and help to break down cellulite, the gel-like lumps of fat, water and toxins trapped beneath the skin. Once the cellulite is broken down the toxins are eliminated from the body through sweat.

Improved Cardiovascular Conditioning

With the deep penetrating heat of the FIR Cabin, the body will naturally try to cool itself by diverting blood from organs to extremities of the skin through vasodilatation. This will naturally increase heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. This effect is similar to exercising. Thus, it is extremely beneficial to people unable to exercise due to health condition.

Improves Circulation

As the body is heated in the FIR Cabin, the blood vessels start to dilate. This causes the heart to start pumping faster and divert blood from the organs to extremities of the body. This also helps oxygen to reach all points of the body. The benefits of improved circulation include ease of arthritis pain and joint stiffness; faster recovery of tissue injuries, relieves muscle pain, promote wound healing, reduce stress and many other health benefits.

Enhances Immunity

When running a fever, the body naturally produces white blood cells to combat bacteria or microbes. FIR Cabin increases the body temperature and the immune system naturally kicks in to combat the 'artificial fever'

Skin Rejuvenation

Sweating is a natural exfoliation process for the skin. This opens up pores and removes dirt, make-up and oil. This gives your skin a 'new' look, improves acne and reduces scar marks on the body.

  •  How safe is it?

One of Far-Infrared light's characteristics is the ability to easily penetrate human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. The Far-Infrared heat (Far-infrared light waves) penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Far-infrared heating is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
