How Does Infrared Technology Work?
The infrared rays used by the Super Sauna (Photon Genius) are the same invisible light wavelengths generated by the Sun. They provide stimulating warmth, but not visible light. These light waves penetrate the body to generate warmth from the inside out. As your core temperature rises and molecules of moisture are liquefied, your body naturally begins to sweat. This increased natural sweating allows your body to excrete and flush through the sweat glands, built-up toxins and poisons stored in cells, tissues, organs and systems of the body.
At the same time, the therapeutic infrared waves can soothe aching muscles, revitalize cells and tissues, promote healing and rejuvenation, while increasing metabolism can help to burn excess calories, diminish fat, balance weight and improve your overall feeling of health.
How do infrared saunas differ from traditional steam saunas?
Steam saunas generate heat with steam. Breathing in hot, moist, steamy air can be very uncomfortable for many people, particularly those with lung or respiratory issues. The use of infrared technology reduces this problem. The Super Sauna (Photon Genius) provides a drier, more comfortable environment, while still allowing you to work up a sweat.
How long does it take the sauna to heat up?
The Super Sauna (Photon Genius) only needs about 10 minutes to reach maximum heat, unlike traditional saunas, which take as long as 30-45 minutes to warm-up. This makes the Super Sauna (Photon Genius) easier and more convenient to use. Who has time to sit around and wait?
How much does it cost to run?
While energy costs vary from one geographic location to another, in general the cost of running a Super Sauna (Photon Genius) is like running a clothes dryer or a kitchen oven for a similar period of time, saving time and money.
How long should a typical sauna session last?
Generally speaking, we recommend that you begin slowly and consider your current condition(s) and progress steadily. Most people limit a single session to 10-15 minutes in the beginning, although some people push that up to as many as 20 to 30 minutes, depending on their beginning condition(s). Even with the lack of humidity and coolness of fresh room temperature air, you will still work up a sweat from the inside out and it is important not to take it easy in the beginning.
After your session, you can walk slowly while sipping on water and the body normalizes usually within 20-30 minutes. These sessions can be repeated multiple times in a day depending on your current condition and how consistently you have done regular sessions.
What should I wear in the sauna?
Less is best. To start, you may wear you like, though usually lighter weight clothes in a breathable fabric are more comfortable. Because the Super Sauna is transmitting and targeting the beneficial, healing, and therapeutic energy infrared waves, it important that nothing interfere, inhibit, or obstruct the benefits direct to the surface and important areas of the body.
Can I use an infrared sauna if I have metal implants?
Absolutely! Because infrared rays are not absorbed by metal, there is no problem with medically implanted pins, rods or artificial joints. If you have any questions about your specific health issues, you should consult your doctor before using the Super Sauna (Photon Genius).
What should I do after my sauna session?
You should probably take a shower to rinse your body and remove any residue of eliminated toxins. You can then apply a natural moisturizer to prevent your skin from drying out. Also, remember to shampoo your hair to remove any sweat and/or toxic residue as well. Always stay hydrated by sipping water before and after a session (one mouthful, or 3 swallows, every 5-15 minutes throughout the day).
Can the Super Sauna (Photon Genius) be installed in any room?
There is no limit as to where you can install this unit (takes up a corner of a room). The unique horseshoe shape fits easily into a corner without taking up excess space, but you can literally install it anywhere.
Use it as a room divider. It can make it’s own room by turning it to facing a wall and pulling it out approximately 2 feet. Add a chair or stool on each corner between it an the wall. Use one for a towel and the other for clothes. You can put your clothes on one stool, do a session, dry off, put your clothes back on and you’re done! Simple, Quick, Easy! Works Every Time!
Are there any health concerns with using the Super Sauna (Photon Genius)?
While the Super Sauna can obviously provide many health benefits, from improving the look and feel of your skin, to helping you burn off excess calories, to improving cardiovascular health, it is always wise to proceed with caution and in proportion to your physical capabilities at the time. If you have any existing health conditions, or are pregnant, or breastfeeding, consult with your doctor before using the Super Sauna.
Can children use the Super Sauna (Photon Genius)?
Children can gain similar health advantages from infrared. Hospitals all over the world use infrared to stabilize and keep “preborn babies” alive. However, take extra caution! Children naturally have a faster metabolism, so their temperature can rise more quickly than an adult. The general session time formula for children is one minute for each year of age. Children should NEVER use the sauna unattended, or without a signed waiver of liability from the parent or guardian.
