Infrared Saunas Seattle produce invisible, far infrared heat. Infrared heat is SCIENTIFICALY proven to be completely safe and not at all like the heat produced by microwaves. They are not even the same type of energy. In an infrared sauna, twenty percent of the energy is used to heat the air, leaving the rest of the energy to heat the body. The radiant penetrates deep below the skin producing a soothing warmth inside the body. The temperature inside an infrared sauna is adjustable and averages a comfortable 100°F to 130 °F. These lower temperatures allow you to sweat faster and to tolerate a longer sauna session offering greater therapeutic benefit. Typical sessions last 20 to 45 minutes and can be repeated once or twice during the day to maximize the benefits. Infrared saunas leave you feeling invigorated, not depleted like conventional saunas.
Infrared heaters warm the body just like natural sunlight. Infrared heat therapy provided by Midtown Chiropractic located in downtown Seattle uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally. Traditional saunas elevate the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some individuals have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. Infrared saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, infrared saunas heat the body directly. The result is deeper tissue penetration. In an infrared sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna.
