Where traditional steam saunas heat the skin surface only, in a Far Infrared Sauna (FIR) the body core is heated, so we are treating beneath our skin, into cells and deeper into muscle tissue.
Infrared heat is the invisible warmth we feel from the sunlight. Infrared light offers a range of wavelenghts, each penetrating heat into different levels of our skin.
Our mPulse sauna model is a 3-in-1™ infrared sauna with near, mid and far infrared wavelengths. It uses a clinical grade heating technology offering a gentle, comfortable and therapeutic experience. No cool patches.
So if you have a specific health & wellness goal, the mPulse gives you complete control
Weight Loss & Cellulite
FIR Sauna heat therapy can aid in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic process, and the dry heat makes it more comfortable to stay in for longer
A Sunlight FIR Sauna is 7 to 10 times more effective than a conventional steam sauna and operates at 20 – 30 degrees lower. The Detoxification is more effective in an FIR Sauna, giving you around 80% water and 20% toxins. In the conventional steam sauna, it's closer to 97% water and 3% toxins!!
FIR heat therapy has shown promising results in the treatment of pain relief
Speedy Recovery From Injuries
FIR generated heat stimulates blood circulation, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, speeding the healing of sprains and strains. Infrared saunas are used by our Olympic athletes in the Olympic village for pre and post event preparation and recovery.
Sunlight Solocarbon® Far infrared sauna therapy penetrates deeply into joints, muscles and tissues, stimulating circulation and increasing the flow of vital oxygen and nutrients to the body. This can reduce or alleviate problems such as Bad Circulation, Muscle Injuries, Cramps and may help normalise Blood Pressure.
As well as clearing out the pores via the sweating process FIR Sauna heat therapy increases blood circulation to carry greater amounts of oxygen & nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy skin tone and texture.
The immune system is strengthened by the increase in core temperature which mimics fever and produces an immune response.
Introducing any new activity into the physiological network of the body should be done in steady increments.
To maximise the long term and long lasting health benefits of the far infrared sauna, the sessions should be both shorter and spread apart in the beginning as the body acclimatises to the heat and the rays of the infrared spectrum. (This is particularly true if you are inexperienced with heat therapy).
In order to maximize the benefits of this therapy, it is important to allow the body time to adapt.
Once the body has adapted, then yes, we suggest using the sauna up to 30 minutes 3-4 times a week Drink plenty of water to replace lost fluids and to keep yourself hydrated.
As long as you feel fine, use the sauna every day and enjoy.
In the mood to lose weight? eko saunas can help.
Our infrared saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort.
Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
According to the Journal of American Medical Association regular use of sauna imparts a similar boost on the the cardiovascular system as running.
“Regular use of a sauna may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.”- JAMA.
A 30 minutes Session burn up to 600 calories
