Far Infrared Sauna: A Total Health Spa

Traditional saunas use wood stoves or heaters which heat the air, mainly via convection, to 85 degrees. Far infrared saunas, however, heat the air to approximately 55 degrees, which makes the experience more relaxing. Infrared heaters use a wavelength around 10 micrometers that is able to penetrate tissues more deeply than warm air, up to 3-5cm. 

Occupants are able to develop a more vigorous sweat at a lower temperature than traditional saunas. Far Infrared machines use dry heat, meaning that you can remain clothed, dry, and comfortable.

OCNM uses the SOQI machine that is made in Japan.

  • Detoxification of the body – Infrared Sauna Therapy is excellent for detoxifying the body. The infrared heat stimulates sweating,

while penetrating deeply and releasing toxins that can then be eliminated by the body through the sweat.

  • Increased blood flow – Using an infrared sauna can expand capillaries in the body, which stimulates regeneration, circulation, and
  • oxygenation.

  • Relaxation of muscles – FIR heat relieves muscle tension and helps your body to make the most of its intended healing abilities.
  • Infrared Sauna Therapy also reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated in the sauna.
  • Relief from pain – FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen
  • to reach the injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Infrared Sauna Therapy has been effective in providing painrelief to those suffering from back pain, sprains, strains, bursitis, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis.
