Why Infrared Saunas?
WHAT IS INFRARED RADIANT HEAT?
The sun’s visible spectrum containing the seven colors of the rainbow provides the building blocks of life. But not all of this energy is beneficial especially in large quantiles. The invisible infrared spectrum works on a more subtle level by gently penetrating the bodies soft tissue and raising the metabolism, producing sweat that dissolves away harmful substances safely.
Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body because they are easily absorbed, stimulating the lymphatic, immune and cardiovascular systems
Clearlight Infrared™ saunas produce infrared radiant heat through their own unique True Wave™ Infrared heating technology, in the Far Infrared and Full Infrared Spectrum.
The Difference Between Far and Full Spectrum Heat
Full Spectrum infrared encompasses all three wavelengths: near infrared, mid infrared and far.
Near infrared has the shortest wave length and promotes healing and revitalization at the skin level while mid infrared has a longer wave length that penetrates the body’s soft tissue releasing oxygen and increasing circulation.
Why People Choose Infrared Heat
In addition to all the science behind the health benefits from infrared heat, the one aspect we point to the most is how it makes you feel. Because infrared is the kind of heat generated when you take a jog or during a healthy workout it also helps bump up the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.
When our customers experience the healing benefits of Clearlight Infrared™ saunas, they also discovered that this kind of healing made them “feel really good” as well. This is because infrared wavelengths are more easily absorbed by the body, they are less taxing resulting in a more pleasurable healing experience.
“I have epilepsy and went for my 6-month check-up and the doctor walks in and first thing he says is WOW you look great! I told him about the sauna and how I am sleeping better and “feeling good”

We believe that feeling good is a natural part of the healing process and nothing is more natural for the body then the combination of the kind of heat the body already produces coupled with the spectrum of light it is most used to in nature. This combination is what we look for in all infrared saunas and is what Clearlight Infrared™ Saunas are designed to produce. Delivering the health benefits of a regular sauna in a way that is more natural, while giving the body a feeling of wellness in an atmosphere of total relaxation.
Why We Choose Clearlight True Wave® Technology?
Our research determined the large size of our True Wave™ Far Infrared heaters meant more surface area, resulting in lower surface temperature which produces more FAR or LONG wave infrared heat that is more therapeutic on the body. This means better performance within the optimal wavelength range that is more closely tuned to the body’s own radiant energy.
We found the ceramic in the heaters give them a very high infrared output when compared to traditional carbon heaters and allows for greater focus directly on the body. Clearlight combines Carbon and Ceramic in their True Wave™ Far Infrared Heaters to produce healing infrared heat that is unmatched. Our heaters are comprised of micro-thin carbon fibers (1/1000th the thickness of a human hair) combined with our patented micro fine ceramic compound for higher infrared output (emissivity).
“As a healthcare provider, I have been familiar with the health benefits of IR light for years. I appreciated that Clearlight Saunas didn’t just talk about the potential benefits but provided references for the recent research regarding these benefits”

Why Infrared Heat Is Better Than Traditional Saunas
When we compared the quality of heat produced in an infrared sauna with that of traditional saunas we were amazed by the difference. Traditional saunas raise the temperature of the surrounding air to abnormally high temperatures the body is not used to which causes stress. The temperature inside an infrared sauna is adjustable and averages a comfortable 100℉ to 130℉. 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.
Why Infrared Heat Is Safe
In all the years we have been selling infrared sauna’s we continually see scientific reports of not only how safe infrared heat is, but also how essential it is for all life on the planet. Infrared is so prevalent in the universe that NASA is building the infrared James Web Telescope to look back in time like never before. Infrared is a far safer way of getting the benefits from the healthy rays of sunlight without the dangers from over exposure to visible light or heated air.
Infrared heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation
The human body emits and receives infrared heat in the far infrared band length, and other surfaces, like a warm street or heated vending cart, give off infrared in the middle and near infrared band. If you want to experience far infrared heat yourself take your hands and put your palms together. Move your hands about 1/2 an inch apart. You will feel warmth emanating from your palms. This far infrared heat is very similar to the infrared heat emitted from Clearlight Infrared True Wave™ heaters.
