Infrared Wavelengths in Our Sauna
What exactly does 3-in-1 infrared mean to you? It means that you will receive pulsing exposure to all three infrared wavelengths in just one session! The three waves – Near, Mid, and Far – each have their own benefits that release in your body naturally when you sweat in the sauna.
How does Glow’s infrared stand out?
There are many studios claiming they use “full spectrum” infrared. We are here to tell you not all infrared machines are created equally. While others make this statement, they normally just have one or two wavelengths that function simultaneously. Glow has full spectrum offering you Near, Mid, and Far wavelengths that have a specific pulsing pattern to give you the best exposure to all three waves in just one session. Because Glow only uses infrared to create the heat – no conventional heat whatsoever – you can have your phone, laptop, and ice-cold water in our machines. The 3-in-1 infrared is only going to heat up your direct core matter…other businesses will tell you to leave any technology out of the saunas.
Infrared Wavelength Breakdown
Near Infrared (NIR)
This is the shortest infrared wavelength that penetrates the skin’s surface. NASA has studied Near infrared wavelengths for promoting faster wound healing, reducing inflammation and cell regeneration. If that was not enough, studies have shown that NIR assists in anti-aging and natural collagen production.
Mid Infrared (MIR)
Longer then the Near wavelength, the Mid wavelength penetrates deeper into the body’s soft tissue, where inflammation occurs. Helping reduce inflammation allows the Mid wavelength to increase blood and oxygen circulation, resulting in reducing pain and speeding the healing process.
Far Infrared (FIR)
The longest wavelength, Far infrared reaches the deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. FIR raises core body temperature and stimulates sweat glands, allowing your body to have a deep, detoxifying sweat. It’s also linked to weight loss, as it raises your core temperate by 3 degrees and increases your heart rate. This cardiac output burns more calories trying to cool your body off, and aids in lowering systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
