Infrared Log Cabins For The Garden And Your Wellbeing

Mar 28, 2008
Imagine coming home after a hard day's work knowing that your aches and pains will soon disappear, once you have jumped into your infrared log cabin (also known as an infrared sauna).

Unlike traditional saunas that need to warm up the air to a certain temperature before the body is heated, an infrared cabin only heats approximately 20% of the surrounding air, and the remaining 80% is converted to heat within the body. In addition, an infrared cabin does not use steam or humidity and consequently breathing is easier.

Infrared light is part of the sun's invisible spectrum. It is a form of energy that is directly transmitted onto objects because of its specific wavelength. It has nothing to do with ultraviolet light, which causes sunburn and damage to the skin.

Infrared log cabins come in variety of sizes and they can be custom-built or chosen from a standard range. There are a variety of extras to choose from: CD player, colour light panel, aromatherapy dispenser, air purifier, ioniser, and a full spectrum light panel. Infrared log cabins do more then relax you - they can improve your health.

For thousands of years ancient cultures have understood that the action of sweating was an effective way to cleanse the body. The Finns are one of the main cultures that continue to maintain a focus on saunas as a primary method of encouraging sweating. Sweating is one of the body's ways to eliminate toxins, such as metabolic by products from our own cells, and it plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy body. In today's modern world characterized by our inactive lifestyle, the need for a 'good sweat' is very important if we want to look ourselves.

Medical researchers from across the world have found that regular use of an infrared log cabin can have enormous health benefits. In Japan, there is an 'infrared society' composed of medical doctors and physical therapists dedicated to further infrared research. Their findings support the health benefits of infrared therapy as a method of healing. In recent times, Japanese research studies have found treatment in an infrared cabin relieved burn pain and promoted the healing rate with less scarring, reduced hypertension (high blood pressure), improved short-term memory loss, relieved arthritis pain, and improved weight loss results. They also found that ear, nose and throat conditions were relieved: tinnitus (ringing in the ears), nosebleeds and chronic middle-ear infections.

Swedish researchers found joint-pain had been resolved when infrared therapy was used, and in Germany, physicians have used whole-body infrared therapy for over 80 years. Chinese research studies have reported over 90% success rate of ailments treated with infrared therapy, such as: chronic soft tissue injury, sciatica, infected eczema, post-surgical infections, and pelvic infection. Ailments associated with poor circulation can respond very well to sessions in an infrared cabin, due to an increase in peripheral dilation (dilation of the capillaries), such as: leg ulcers, oedema, and fatigue. Skin problems can also be helped: dandruff, ketoids (raised scar tissue), acne, blackheads, and psoriasis.

There are contraindications to using an infrared log cabin, for example: if you're using certain prescription drugs, because of possible changes in the drug's effect due to an interaction with the infrared energy. As well as for people who have lupus or multiple sclerosis, recent joint injuries, surgical implements, and silicone implants.

Infrared therapy is reputed to offer an amazing range of possible therapeutic benefits in research conducted around the world.

If you have any health problems/health concerns, be sure to consult your physician before you commence time in an infrared log cabin.
