Full spectrum infrared sauna is a powerful healing technology simulating and intensifying the natural potent effects of lying under the sun. Relaxation is promoted while your body rids itself of toxins, reduces blood pressure and even burns calories.
Infrared heat is the invisible part of the sun's spectrum, it’s the warmth we feel from sunlight. Infrared saunas deliver natural heat directly to the body, producing the same energy that comes from the sun without the risk of burning and harmful rays. It has the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a range of health benefits.
Nova's Infrared Sauna is a state of the art full spectrum Sunlighten™ mPulse. There is simply no better infrared sauna. Full spectrum is is an advanced blend of near, mid and far infrared heating technology that is clinically shown to raise the body’s core temperature by nearly three degrees without exposing the body to radiation. It features a touch screen and six pre-set programs for detoxification, cardiovascular, pain relief, relaxation, weight loss and skin health.
The skin is our largest organ, and sweat is one of the major elimination channels for toxins. Many of the toxins we absorb are surrounded and trapped by fat, because infrared penetrates deeper, it mobilises and burns fat, which not only helps with weight loss but also with detoxification. It also has an incredible relaxation effect and has been shown that endorphin levels increase after a sauna session.
How It Works
Near infrared penetrates the skin’s surface to rejuvenate and heal the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, improves overall skin tone, including elasticity, firmness, softness which keeps our skin feeling smooth and a youthful glow. These natural preventative properties can strengthen the body’s immune system, stimulating the circulatory system to oxygenate the body’s cells for better blood circulation. Scientific research has shown that near infrared increases the skin’s healing process by helping cell regeneration and human tissue growth to repair wounds faster, promote cell health, completion, skin purification, tissue growth reducing scarring and preventing infections.
Mid infrared penetrates deep into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs to help speed up the healing process. Blood flow is activated up to twice the normal rate, giving you the same benefits of a cardiovascular workout. Blood vessels expand to help circulation transport oxygen throughout the body. Mid Infrared helps the muscles recover much faster after a workout by penetrating deep into joints, muscles and tissues. Pain management professionals are now incorporating infrared therapy to help decrease pain and muscle spasms to speed up recovery time. Effective for sports injuries, muscle soreness, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic pain conditions. Mid Infrared can promote weight-loss, inflammation, pain relief, increases circulation, speeds oxygen and increases energy.
Far infrared penetrates deep into the body’s tissues where toxins are stored by raising your core body temperature to stimulate the sweat glands, resulting in a deep detoxifying sweat at the cellular level leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Sweating is the most natural and safe way to heal and keep your body healthy. Sweating increases your heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate to make the heart pump faster which increases blood flow to lower blood pressure and helps with circulation which may lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Promotes detoxification, cholesterol reduction and relaxation.
