History of FAR Infrared Saunas

Traditional steam saunas have been around for centuries and are part of Nordic culture. The benefits of increasing the body’s temperature to induce sweating is an age-old tradition. The ancient Greeks, Mayans, Finns and Native American cultures have been using steam in this way for thousands of years.

While traditional steam saunas produce copious amounts of sweat, they don’t remove the same amount of pollutants from the body as far infrared saunas. This is because steam doesn’t penetrate the body the way far infrared rays do.

The first healing infrared thermal systems were developed in Japan and have been in use since 1979. Far infrared thermal systems were developed in the United States in 1981 and have been used in hospital nurseries to warm newborn babies ever since.

Over the last 25 years, Japanese and Chinese researchers have reported many benefits associated with far infrared sauna use. Far infrared thermal systems are widely in use throughout the Orient and Europe in the form of lamps and saunas

In Germany, whole-body infrared therapy has been in use for over 80 years. It is used in cancer therapy to compliment chemotherapy, as well as in hyperthermia treatments.
