With our portable saunas, you can enjoy the health benefits of sauna use in the comforts of home.
Near Infrared (NIR) is the type of infrared light nearest to the visible light spectrum , in the 810-830nm ranges. Most of the benefits of NIR stem from the ability to stimulate cellular ATP production. This is a benefit that is not provided by far-infrared radiation.
Near-infrared light causes mitochondria, the cell’s powerhouses, to produce more ATP, a compound that provides the cell’s energy. Shining NIR light on the skin can give an instant energy boost that could help stimulate collagen production, rebuild joints and cartilage, heal wounds, relieve pain and inflammation, as well as enhance muscle recovery.
Compared to far infrared saunas, near infrared utilizes one third less energy, does not emit harmful electromagnetic fields (EMF); while providing numerous health and wellness benefits.
|Far-infrared saunas (FIR)||Near infra-red saunas(NIR)|
|Does not stimulate ATP production||NIR stimulates ATP production, promotes DNA repair and cellular regeneration|
|No photobiomodulation health benefits||Visible light in the red, orange and yellow color ranges stimulates the organs of elimination and the adrenal glands.|
|Uses more electricity||Uses ⅓ less electricity than FIR|
|Emits harmful EMF (4-15 micron range)||Electromagnetically safer|
|Heats the body superficially||Energy penetrates 3-4 inches inside body|
|Unable to focus energy on a single spot||Enables spot therapy on problem areas|
Another benefit of NIR saunas is that unlike traditional saunas, we don’t have to wait 20-30 minutes for the sauna to heat up. With the flip of a switch, NIR heat therapy has an immediate impact.
By promoting detoxification, relieving pain and enhancing cellular regeneration, the NIR sauna is a wonderful tool to improve the well being of everyone in the home.
