Infrared Saunas – Sweat Your Way to a Better You

In disciplines such as yoga, a daily sweat is acknowledged as one of the single best things you can do to stay healthy. Arteries dilate, improving blood flow throughout the body and relaxing tight or overworked muscles. The production of white blood cells is stimulated, strengthening the immune system. Toxins are flushed out through the skin’s pores. In a Pure Infra sauna, the ambient air temperature settles at your preset comfort level — while the safest infrared waves possible penetrate deep into your body, warming you inside and out at the same time. This means you can detoxify comfortably and safely for longer periods. And come out feeling stronger, healthier and in better balance.

The “Coanda” Effect

Infrared Heating Technology

One of the most common complaints about IR saunas is the uncomfortable sensation of “cold spots” in the sauna where no IR heat waves reach the body, and “hot spots” when seated directly in front of the old-style ceramic or metallic IR heaters. Due to the huge surface area of the CarbonFlex® heating panels, the heat is evenly dispersed and the surface temperature of the heaters is comfortable to the bathers. More importantly, the large surface area creates the perfect IR wavelength.

Why Infrared Bathing?

  • Body-friendly. Infrared bathing is a safe and comfortable way to detoxify, and relieve aches pains and stress
  • Time-friendly. There’s no waiting for an infrared sauna to heat up, so you can easily enjoy its benefits anytime
  • Planet-friendly. Even with daily use, Infrared technology uses as little or less electricity than many other common household appliances
  • Family-friendly. Infrared saunas are safe and easy to use for kids and adults alike — it’s an excellent investment in your family’s health

Finnleo PureInfra Features

The Healthiest Infrared Available Anywhere!

All infrared delivery systems produce EMR and EF to some extent. While the levels are typically low, it is still not clearly understood what the long-term effects of low exposure might mean. Pure Infra technology was developed to take the worry out of unnecessary exposure to EMR and EF. For instance, the electrical field in a Pure Infra is less than you’d experience from a computer screen or cell phone. After all, if the point is to detoxify, why expose yourself to any level of unnecessary radiation? In fact, the EMR and EF levels in your Pure Infra Sauna are lower than the ambient in your home. Your Sauna becomes your ‘safe’ haven.

We were first in the industry to introduce proprietary Low EMR/EF technology, which was market driven by the Canadian Medical Community, successfully developing technology with 4 patents in the US, Canada, and Europe. Our Lowest EMR/EF in the world has been verified by Intertek. These advancements truly changed the infrared sauna industry. While many competitors have tried to copy the design, Finnleo remains the leader.
