Frequently Asked Questions

What is FAR Infrared Sauna?

A FAR Infrared Sauna is a sauna that engages FAR Infrared light to heat the body in an enclosed cabin. FAR infrared rays are emitted from heaters within the sauna. Infrared light is the invisible light which is part of the sun’s spectrum. As humans our visible spectrum goes from red to violet, with the beautiful colors of the rainbow being red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The infra-red meaning is “below-red” like ultraviolet (UV) means “above-violet. Our infra-red saunas use the far part of the infrared spectrum.

What research has been conducted or studied about FAR Infrared Saunas?

NASA discovered in the mid-1960’s that FAR waves was an effective way to maintain cardiovascular health and conditioning for astronauts during long space flights. Medical doctors and the infrared society as a whole continues to research and support the many health benefits of FAR infrared saunas as a wonderful method of healing.

Are Infrared rays harmful?

No. Infrared sauna is completely safe. JNH Saunas use radiant energy (same as produced by the sun) to the heat the body, not the room.  Our infrared heating technology does not include any harmful UV rays.

I have a medical condition, can I safely use a JNH Sauna?

Many sauna users have medical conditions that have improved from frequent sauna sessions. Sauna users have experienced the benefits of lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, detoxifying the body from medications and toxins, reducing and improving acne, weight loss, the ease of aching muscles, improving skin tone and appearance, speeding the healing process of bruises and cuts, reducing stress, better sleep, and cardiovascular conditioning. We always recommend that you consult your doctor before beginning a sauna session.

What is the difference between a traditional sauna and infrared sauna?

Traditional saunas use heaters to warm the air and stones within the sauna room. The heat source attains high temperatures which in turn heats the air in the sauna. Most modern saunas are controlled by a thermostat to produce high temperatures. The air in these traditional saunas run between 169 ° to 190 ° F. The body heats up as the hot air fills the room which results in a sweat. These temperatures are extremely high and it is recommended that the session be no longer that 15 minutes. Our infrared saunas use a heater that creates infrared waves that heat the body directly. The infrared rays are the same rays that come from the sun without the UV radiation. The rays penetrate the skin deeply without heating up the air in the room. The temperature within the infrared sauna is around 110 ° to 140 ° F. The lower temperatures allow for longer sauna sessions providing you the opportunity to sweat more.

What is the difference between ceramic and carbon fiber heaters?

Both types of heaters provide the same health benefits and will produce the results you’re after. The difference is in the heat distribution between the two heaters and the type of sauna experience you want.
Carbon fiber heaters are best for those who would prefer a long, relaxing sauna session or for those seeking healing from a chronic condition or disease. If you desire a quick, intense sweat, you may wan to go with a ceramic heater. Below, we’ve provided a comparison of the two types of heaters to help you decide:

Ceramic Heaters

  • Have a high emissivity (degree at which material can emit)
  • Last an average of 9,000 hours
  • Are rod-shaped for optimum FIR dispersement
  • Are made of true ceramic
  • Do not have a large surface area but because they are enclosed in a reflective plate, the far infrared is able to target a large portion of the body
  • Have the fastest warm-up time to produce a very intense heat that will allow you to sweat within minutes

Carbon Fiber Heaters

  • Have a high emissivity (degree at which material can emit)
  • Last an average of 18,000 hours
  • Are made of a thin carbon plate for even heat and FIR emission
  • Are flexible and less fragile
  • Have a flat surface that allows for a more even heat distribution
  • Have the largest flat surface area that infrared heaters offer
  • Offer low wattage for a more gentle, therapeutic heat
  • Provide the same health benefits as ceramic
