Your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna is completely safe and produces the same far infrared heat produced by the sun. The Far-infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health. The radiant heat from your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna surrounds you and penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation. Using your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna helps to remove impurities from your cells, specifically the cells inside our fat where our body stores waste and harmful toxins such as cholesterol and heavy metals. When used properly, your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna will help provide a lifetime of healthful living.
Completely harmless, we feel far infrared heat from such sources as the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off) and fires. Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light: longer wavelength infrared waves are thermal, while short or near infrared waves are not hot at all, in fact, you cannot even feel them. It is the far infrared energy that is most beneficial, penetrating the skin and increasing circulation to help rid the body of harmful toxins.
Toxins are all around us, in the containers that carry our food, in the carpet we walk on, in the food we eat and in the air we breathe.
