About Infrared Sauna at Ban Sabai Big Buddha

Simply put, it is a form of energy that heats objects without having to heat the air in between.
This invisible band of light that can be felt in the form of heat principally comes from the sun.

Human bodies naturally send and receive far infrared waves from each other. This is the same
principle behind the centuries-old therapeutic properties of palm healing.

Infra Red Sauna

How it Works

Komeda's deep heat produces an increased blood flow level and improves the circulation of oxygen throughout the body resembling that during an exercise. This stimulates the sweat glands to excrete two to three times more intense perspiration than conventional hot-air saunas.

The more profuse the sweating, the more toxins and body waste are released. This detoxifying process purges the body of harmful heavy metals known to cause disease, thus, fortifying the immune system and improving the body's overall resistance to sickness.

 

 
Far infrared energy effectively breaks down water molecules that accumulate and store unwanted toxins in our body that block blood circulation and impair cellular functions. Exposure to far infrared waves steadily circulates blood, removing blockages in the blood vessels and allowing for proper oxygen distribution to all parts of the body. This greatly reduces the risk for developing diseases.

American researchers have shown that conventional sauna users sweat out 95% to 97% water while far infrared thermal system users excrete 80% to 85% water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid. These heavy metals are not discharged with the sweat from normal exercise.

Unwanted toxins impair cellular functions. Far infrared energy effectively breaks down water molecules that store these body wastes. Blockages in the blood vessels are removed with exposure to far infrared waves and allows for proper oxygen distribution to all parts of the body.

What is Infrared?

Saunas and steam rooms have been around for thousands of years. While its therapeutic benefits have been recognized, these saunas, if improperly calibrated, recreate near infrared rays which are not beneficial to the human body. These create excessive hot air, which only heats the skin superficially.

Komeda's infrared thermal system uses infrared radiant energy that directly penetrates body tissues to as much as 1.5". As much as 93% of these infrared waves that reach the skin is absorbed by the body. This accounts for the unparalleled benefits reported to be available through an infrared thermal system, which is otherwise not presented by conventional hot-air saunas.

 

The infrared heat in Komeda's Infrared Thermal System is the same as the beneficial heat emitted by the sun and that which is naturally produced by our bodies to keep us warm.

As opposed to near infrared energy (6.0 to 8.0 microns short wavelength) that heats substances from the surface to the interior, far infrared energy (8.0 to 15.0 microns long wave) penetrates uniformly and up to 1.5 inches into the body.

This accounts for the therapeutic advantages of infrared thermal systems over conventional saunas that employ hot air.

The healing property of natural far infrared rays has been recognized for centuries from Chinese palm healing to the popularization of the conventional sauna by the Finns. To date, far infrared therapy has been performed on millions of people in the Orient, Europe and Australia to treat a multiplicity of infirmities.

Far infrared rays are also called vital rays because of its regenerative effects on the body. “Resonant absorption” is the phenomenon of the body reaching its fullest healing response to the external production of far infrared energy. Tissues needing repair selectively absorb the rays while the remaining rays pass on harmlessly.

  • Collagen tissues increase in extensibility needed for repair & recovery of injuries involving ligaments, joint capsules, tendons, fasciae & synovium;
  • Joint stiffness decrease in thickened connective tissues for greater flexibility and full range of muscular motion;
  • Muscle spasms are relieved with the heating of muscle fibers;
  • Pain is relieved through increased endorphin production & dilation of blood vessels brought about by direct heat application on tissues & nerves;
  • Blood flow is increased by inducing expansion of capillaries promoting quick muscle recovery;
  • Inflammation is arrested

SOLUTION TO FITNESS AND WEIGHT LOSS

Enter Komeda. Now you can relax your way to keeping fit in only 20 to 30 minutes a day. Imagine burning more than 600 to 900 calories in a half-hour session… while you rest! This is the same caloric consumption you would yield from a 30-minute high-impact aerobic activity such as rowing at your peak effort or running a 6 to 9 mile marathon. This now also makes it possible for people who cannot physically exert themselves to achieve the same benefits of a fitness and exercise program.

The idea behind doing any aerobic activity is to raise the heart rate and increase metabolism, which brings on a cardiovascular training and conditioning effect. It is then that calories are burned, leading to the much-desired result of weight loss.

Extensive research has shown that exposure to far infrared heat creates the same impact on the cardiovascular system. The rays that penetrate over 1.5 inches deep into muscular tissues and internal organs increase heart

volume and rate. The body then cools itself by producing sweat as the heart pumps blood at a faster rate to boost circulation. This likens with the cardiovascular function necessary to burn calories and shed off weight.

Compared with the conventional hot-air sauna, Komeda’s infrared thermal system produces two or three times more sweat. While the water lost can be regained by drinking, the calories cannot. Experts believe that as far infrared energy effectively expels toxins, it eliminates with it the fat that our bodies use to dilute toxins. Body fat becomes soluble at 10 degrees Fahrenheit and is

SOLUTION TO BEAUTY AND SKIN CARE

Most beauty and skincare products offer external and superficial treatments to dermatological problems. Far infrared energy works from the outside in, emitting the full bio-spectrum that penetrates the deep layers of the skin. This process stimulates molecular activity to promote the metabolism of skin cells. A good metabolic rate enables the skin tissues to produce new cells and replace old skin or dead kin cells. At the same time, wastes, excreted thorough fatty sweat. It also improves microcirculation, which enables internal nutrients and oxygen supply to reach skin cells and maintain skin moisture essential for suppleness. Improved blood circulation has also been shown to treat several skin problems, burns, cuts and wounds.

Komeda’s infrared thermal systems also work to eliminate stubborn fat, water and wastes trapped in skin pockets that make up unsightly cellulite. Because radiant heat is capable of twice the depth of heat penetration, Komeda can combat cellulite to a greater extent than conventional saunas.

Documented skin conditions and problems that have been treated with the use of infrared treatment are the following :

  • Nettle rash
  • Clogged pores
  • Poor skin tone
