The Relax® Sauna is a personal use infrared sauna that has a far infrared ray (FIR) heat source. It delivers a safe and complete sauna experience from its compact and portable design.
With patented and award winning technology, it achieves positive therapeutic outcomes for a variety of conditions, at a fraction of the cost and effort required with other types of treatment.
Listen to the short video testimonial, to the left, from a man who uses the Relax Sauna to treat patients in his functional and integrative medicine practice.
The Relax FIR Sauna assembly consists of:
● a folding nylon chair
● a collapsible sauna tent
● two far infrared radiators
● a timer switch
● two support poles
Because it is portable, a carrying bag is included with the Relax Sauna.
What makes The Relax far infrared sauna different from other saunas?
There are several different types of sauna. They all aim to raise a persons core body temperature, to create an artificial fever, so the bodys natural defensive and healing processes will react, and improve health. As their names below in List 1. suggest, their heat source is one of their distinguishing attributes:
Steam Saunas employ heated rocks (or heated metal plates) over which water is poured to increase the air temperature, generate steam and produce high humidity levels.
Dry Heat Wood Sauna
Dry heat wood saunas have radiant heat elements that heat the air to a temperature high enough to raise skin temperature, and subsequently increase the body temperature.
Infrared saunas heat the air using incandescent infrared heat lamps which radiate a broad range of frequencies in the infrared spectrum, mostly non-visible near-infrared energy with smaller amounts of middle-infrared, and even smaller amounts of far-infrared. They also produce some red, some orange, and some yellow visible light.
Far-Infrared Ray (FIR) Saunas
Far Infrared saunas uses electrically charged ceramic chips or carbon coated metal plates to produce a narrow band of Far Infrared Ray (FIR) energy that can penetrate into the body, and gently heat the body at a cellular level from within, while also heating the air outside the body.
Table 1 below shows how the steam and dry heat saunas rely solely on convection to warm the body. It takes time to heat up the air and then for that heat to be absorbed into the body. In contrast, long wavelength energy from a far-infrared sauna penetrates up to 1.5 inches (almost 4 cm) beneath the skin into the body. The body experiences FIR energy as heat in its' biological structures like cells, cell membranes, cell fluids (especially water), and DNA/proteins. Waiting for the air to heat up is not required with a far-infrared sauna, like it is with a regular wooden or traditional steam sauna.

Inside out body warming with resonate far-infrared energy produces physiological responses in the body that are similar to those achieved with moderate exercise. Infrared Saunas (Near-Mid Infrared Saunas) cannot achieve the same therapeutic affects of a far-infrared sauna because the shorter wave length energy they generate is mostly reflected by the body.
Near-Infrared sauna heaters do indeed heat the ambient air, as other saunas do. The shorter wave length energy, however, does not penetrate deeply into tissue, or achieve resonance with water molecules, and there by trigger (miraculously) the plethora of biochemical processes that improve and optimize peoples health, like far-infrared saunas do.
The Relax Far-Infrared Sauna is a portable, high quality, medical grade, health maintenance system. Its quality advantage starts with the fact that it is a personal sauna. Some professionals have suggested sauna therapy is more hygienic when it is delivered individually (no shared body fluids, or germs floating about from other users). The Relax Saunas biggest quality advantage is in the purity, strength and effectiveness of its far-infrared irradiation.
PTC controlled far-infrared radiators
Relax Sauna configuration drawing
Each Relax Sauna has two 750 watt radiators that powerfully and exclusively radiate 95% to 99% far infrared ray (FIR) energy. The critical mechanism in the radiator is a ceramic semi-conductor that excludes near and middle infrared energy frequencies, and actively emits far infrared rays having a wavelength between 4 and 14 microns.
There are 20 of these semi conductors in each of the sauna radiators. PTC resistors on each radiator heater assembly enable electricity (and there by FIR energy) to flow continuously while the temperature in the sauna chamber is maintained between 140° - 170° degrees Fahrenheit. An electric fan on the back of each radiator cools the heater assembly, and generates a heat flow that distributes the comfortable and gentle heat throughout the saunas interior evenly.
The interior lining of the sauna tent serves as a mirror for the far infrared rays. Its silver embedded nylon material reflect far infrared rays within the sauna chamber like a glass mirror would recursively reflect visible light. The result is, whole body emersion in penetrating FIR waves and flowing soothing heat, that quickly and efficiently provide a total body sauna experience which you can begin to enjoy in as little as 30 seconds after turning it on.
