The Finnish, who believed to have invented the first sauna, has an adage that says “the sauna is the most liberating space in the world.”
The heat from a sauna helps relax the body’s muscles, improve blood circulation, and stimulate the release of the feel-good hormone endorphin.
To provide innovative sauna experience, equipment supplier Technolux brings to the country the Red Sauna, a mobile redwood machine that uses infrared lamps with electromagnetic radiation to warm the whole body to achieve optimal benefits.
While conventional saunas use heat to warm the air, which in turn, warms the body, Red Sauna heats up the body directly without warming the air around, making it the most natural way of heating without any adverse effect. An infrared sauna uses light to create heat and is usually called a far-infrared sauna (“far” describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum).
Red Sauna uses the infratherapy system to help the body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, as well as environmental chemicals.
A session with the infrared sauna technology, Technolux said, increases the metabolism, helps in weight loss, relaxes and relieves the body of aches, aids in better sleep, and purifies the skin.
It also offers maximum relaxation and balances the level of cortisol, the body’s stress hormone. The heat from the infrared bulbs helps relieve tension, thus allowing the body to immediately de-stress.
Moreover, infratherapy relieves the muscle and joint aches and inflammations. The machine also helps remove excess weight by heating the core temperature of the body which then increases the heart rate—the same experience a person gets when doing an exercise routine—thereby burning more calories, and eventually losing those extra pounds.
When infrared lights increase temperature, blood circulation and flow will be stimulated and improved. It also helps purify skin by eradicating toxins and pollutants from the pores, resulting in clearer, more supple, and healthier-looking skin. A session also helps heal wound faster and boost immune function, according to Technolux.
“Our Red Sauna has a built-in Wi-Fi, aromatherapy, and its own pipe-in music to let you achieve total relaxation. But perhaps one of the biggest advantages of this system is its mobility. It’s portable and doesn’t take too much floor space so you may place it or move it anywhere around your house or your clinic,” said Norell Ortega, vice president of Medical-Aesthetic Division at Technolux.
Red Sauna is available at the Medical-Aesthetic showroom, located on the 5th floor of Technolux headquarters at 2176, Primo Rivera Street, La Paz, Makati City. Call 0917-8081453, 0917-8673910, or 0927-6125577 for inquiries.
