TECHNOLOGY & SAFETY
1. Is FIR a harmful form of radiation? Will use the Personal Sauna cause any side effects?
The most basic and crucial difference between far infrared rays (FIR) and harmful rays is that virtually all living life have the need for FIR – warming energy. And all living life that metabolize release FIR. The sun’s rays include FIR that is needed by all living things but its rays also contain the harmful X-rays, UV rays and near infrared rays. Prolonged exposure can lead to sunburns and the peeling of skin. The Personalized Sauna has been designed to have only far infrared rays at 4 ~ 14 microns (1 micron = 1/1000 mm). By (water) molecular vibration and resonant absorption, energy is transmitted deep into the body and reaches the bone marrow. Thus, the Personalized Sauna provides energy that you can easily absorb without having to worry about the side effects.
2. Will my skin dry? Will I suffer from burns?
Only a wavelength that is less than 3 microns (e.g. near infrared rays, UV etc.), which stops at the skin’s surface and cannot be absorbed by us can cause scalding. And in serious cases, burns might result. Through the resonance and absorption by water molecules, protein, and organic molecules, the body is able to conduct FIR energy at 4 ~ 14 microns which is then absorbed by our cells and internal organs. This energy is then transmitted into the deeper parts of our body, thus eliminating the possibility of burns.
Because the process of perspiration and detoxification involves losing a large amount of water, the body needs to be constantly replenished with water before and after one uses the Personalized Sauna and the FIR Lamp. This helps to prevent the possibility of dehydration.
3. What is the difference between Personalized Sauna and others on the market? Looks the same to me.
4. Will my electricity bill increase drastically if I use the Personalized Sauna everyday?
Because of the little time involved every time you use the sauna, it consumes much less electricity than the average refrigerator or air-conditioner. A 15 minutes session costs around USD 25 cents. The Personalized Sauna is suitable for the entire family and helps to keep all in good health.
5. Can I use the Personalized Sauna everyday? And how long for each session?
Absolutely. In fact, the Personalized Sauna is designed for everyday use. In general, most people do not have the habit of exercising regularly. The Personalized Sauna can help to reverse this sort of unhealthy lifestyle. The skin is our biggest detoxification tool. A 15 minutes session daily effectively purges accumulated toxins and waste matter from the body and helps to keep it ‘clean’. Blood circulation is improved, cells activity stimulated and fatigue relieved. Effectively reduces the risk of chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart problems and diabetes etc.
6. How do I clean the sauna after use? Will my perspiration cause the sauna to smell?
Maintenance is easy. Simply use a slightly damp
cloth to wipe the radiators and the interior of the sauna cover. The
footpad between the two radiators can be removed and washed if
necessary. But because the titanium oxide coated-ceramic semiconductors
are anti-bacteria, all you need to do is switch the sauna on for 2 ~ 5
minutes after use each time to help remove any unpleasant smells. (Do
not attempt to clean the sauna with any strong cleaning agents.)
Yes you can. Wipe dry and take a short rest before
stepping into the shower. Through molecular resonant vibration and
absorption, FIR energy is not concentrated on the surface of the skin.
The body is kept warm internally, cold air cannot enter the pores thus
it is unlikely that you will catch a chill.
The Personalized Sauna is both collapsible and
fold able making it suitable for easy storage. Moreover, it serves as
ideal tool to help keep the whole family fit and healthy. On this
account, space is not a big problem. It will benefit you and your
family much more than the television or refrigerator can. Beside, it
take less than 5 minutes to install or uninstall it.
9. Why does the average man need to use the Personalized Sauna? What about people who exercise regularly? Do they have a need for it as well?
(1) Traditional Chinese medical (TCM) viewpoint:
Helps stimulate blood circulation and reduce bruising. People who lack
exercise suffer from poor blood circulation and are more prone to
ischemia. People who have a high percentage of body fat suffer from
poor blood circulation because the fat in their blood slows
circulation. The body also becomes more prone to bruising when
circulation is poor. Thus you need the sauna to help improve blood
PERSONALIZED SAUNA VS. EXERCISE AND LABOR
BEAUTY & SLIMMING
10. Does the Personalized Sauna help to slim?
The natural and healthy way to lose weight is to
increase a person’s basal metabolic rate. Daily repeated usage (in and
out) of the Personalized Sauna, with the effects of deep warming, it
can help to increase a person’s metabolic rate. Coupled with healthy
eating habits, it is not impossible to achieve an ideal weight and good
health at the same time.
Under the pretext that you are using the
Personalized Sauna for slimming purposes, it is more likely that you
will experience a firming up of the bust line instead of breast
reduction. A woman’s breasts consist largely of fats and different
individuals experience weight loss at different parts of their body.
However, it is unlikely that you will go from a cup C to B unless there
is drastic weight loss.
Warming energy helps activate cellular renewal in the blood vessels (including capillaries), blood stream and muscles. This explains why regular usage helps to increase oxygen in the blood and provide a more youthful appearance to the skin. Supplement this with a suitable amount of exercise and you are on your way to attaining a more radiant and firmer complexion.
13. I’m worried about the red spots that have appeared on my skin after I started using the Personalized Sauna. What causes them? And is it normal that it itches?
The occurrence of red spots and itchiness is
perfectly normal in that it is only a transitional phase in the process
of detoxification. When toxins are unable to be carried away by the
body’s blood stream, they appear as red spots on the skin. Different
individuals experience different symptoms and this sort of reaction
does not necessarily occur after once or twice in the sauna. In fact,
it might take weeks or even longer for anything like that to happen.
Not everyone will experience these symptoms but even if you do, it is
not a cause for worry. If your skin itches, avoid scratching. Instead,
irradiate the afflicted area with the FIR Lamp to help stop the itch
and prevent infection.
15. Is it normal to experience some Relaxation after a sauna session?
FIR energy helps dilate the body’s blood vessels but because the quantity of blood remains unchanged, the head experiences a temporary lack of oxygen and blood thus explaining the passing Relaxation. This is similar to how some people feel after exercise. Use the Personalized Sauna everyday to help the body in its process of ‘making’ blood and curb the problem of Relaxation at its root cause. As for those who already suffer from ischemia (inadequate blood) or anemia (poor blood), lying down on your back and raising your legs can help induce blood flow backwards thereby relieving the problem of headaches.
16. Why is it after using the Personalized Sauna I often feel both hungry and sleepy?
Blood flow quantity increases, metabolic rate experiences a sudden surge and induced perspiration in the process of detoxification all contribute to the burning of both calories and nutrients. Helps relieve fatigue, reduce blood pressure and relax body muscles. It is at this point in time that you need to replenish on nutrients and gain adequate rest. First time users are more likely to experience hunger pangs immediately and a desire to sleep after several hours. Athletes experience a similar body change – after sports they feel both tired and sleepy. However, after a period of time when the body has become accustomed to using the Personalized Sauna, with adequate nutrition, you should feel more energetic and experience better sleep in the long run.
17. Why is it after/during the usage of the Personalized Sauna certain areas of the body feel more hot/painful than the rest of the body?
(1) Areas more affected than others are a result of
poor oxygen and blood circulation in that particular part of the body.
It could also be that of an old injury. (Refer to Q.20)
(1) How much fluid you drink is a factor. When your
body has little water in it, naturally perspiration amounts will
lessen; cold weather is a factor because when temperatures are low,
more energy is needed to help open the pores.
After you use the sauna each time, both your blood circulation and blood flow is made smooth and improved upon. As a result of this, you gain ample rest and a more peaceful sleep. This explains why you need lesser hours.
20. Why do my old wounds hurt after I use the sauna?
FIR helps activate cellular renewal and heal wounds faster; blood flow is smoothed and blocked passages cleared. Blood circulation is naturally poorer at the old wounds which explains why you feel a prickling or itchy sensation there signaling restricted flow. Whenever pain is experienced, stop the sauna session and remember the duration taken. Do continue to use the sauna regularly with similar or slighter shorter duration. With patience, one should be able to gradually increase the duration of the sauna session with cellular renewal and healing.
21. Will using the Personalized Sauna everyday adversely affect sperm production for the male?
The male reproductive organ does not produce sperms all the time (24 hours). A short 15 minutes usage will not affect a male’s ability to produce. Unlike the other traditional sauna, the Personalized Sauna produces the pure FIR energy, so it would not have those side effects that cost by regular high temperature.
22. Are people fitted with heart pacers, rods in the legs etc. suitable to use the sauna?
These supplementary medical apparatus are wrapped around by muscle tissue. FIR energy penetrates the skin and goes deep into the body; improved blood circulation helps bring warming energy to all parts of the body and does not just concentrate on any particular area. As the body perspires during the detoxification process, body temperature decreases. The area where the (for e.g.) heart pacer is fitted is kept within a humanly tolerant temperature range. The basic rule when using any FIR product is not to employ it directly on the part of the body fitted with foreign objects. This helps to prevent the objects from reflecting and rejecting the warming energy.
23. How can sufferers of high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, depression, manic-depression, work-stress etc. benefit from using the Personalized Sauna?
(1) Hypertension – Circulation is the continuous
flow of blood from the heart to the body and back to the heart again.
It is the process that keeps you alive. Arteries are vessels that
deliver oxygen-rich blood to your body. Veins in your body are vessels
that return oxygen-poor blood to the heart. There are two types of
24. How does the Personalized Sauna help sufferers of dialysis, uraemia (kidney disease), rheumatoid arthritis, joint aches, inter-vertebral disc protrusion related complications and osteophyte (small abnormal bony outgrowth) etc.?
(1) Our kidneys contain millions of nephrons (which
consist of capillaries and tiny tubules) that function as filters to
‘clean’ our blood. For people with kidney disease or degenerated
kidneys, the filtration capability is poor because the nephrons are
damaged. They are advised to limit the intake of water. Personalized
Sauna helps by excreting uric acid, urea and toxins through your
perspiration. Increase your intake of water as you gradually increase
the duration of your sauna sessions. Patience and endurance is
necessary for long periods of therapy.
25. Will the Personalized Sauna improve the condition of people undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy?
(1) It is important to understand the role of the
Personalized Sauna in strengthening a person’s overall health
(including the immune system) through effective detoxification. The
Personalized Sauna is not meant to replace treatment and medical
consultation and that cancer patients should seek the right treatment.
However, it is likely that medical treatment will prove more beneficial
if you sought to take good care of yourself first.
