What Is Infrared Radiant Heat?
It’s the most basic form of heating known to man. Similar to when the sun emerges from the clouds on a chilly day, infrared rays are one of the invisible spectrums of light produced by the sun, that provides an instant warming to any object that it hits, including your body.
When infrared rays penetrate your skin deeply, something almost magical happens. They dissolve harmful substances accumulated in the body and revitalize your cells and metabolism. It’s this type of heat that the infrared saunas produced by Jacuzzi® use to improve your overall wellness.
Far infrared is the frequency of invisible light that’s generated naturally by the sun. It’s the furthest wavelength from visible light, and it can penetrate the human body up to three inches deep, generating warmth and a deep sweat that can eliminate toxins and provide immense relief to muscles and internal organs.
When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules (comprising 70% of our body) these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and the eventual breakdown of the water molecules causes encapsulated gasses and other toxic materials to be released.
Full Spectrum Infrared
Full spectrum refers to the entire infrared spectrum: near infrared, mid infrared and far infrared. With the addition of near and mid infrared, you will get the maximum benefit from your Jacuzzi® infrared sauna. Many healthcare professionals use infrared heaters to treat a variety of diseases throughout the world.
Near Infrared is the shortest wavelength and will be absorbed just below the surface of the skin creating a sweat that promotes healing and revitalization.
Mid infrared is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue increasing circulation, releasing oxygen to reach injured areas.
