What’s the difference between the sauna and the Soqi Bed? ( We have both.)
The far infrared sauna can fit 3 people in it. You can sit up or lay down. You will sweat while in the sauna. Generally you will have on as little clothes as possible. Your head and feet will not be sticking out like in the Soqi Bed. Make up will tend to get a little smeared due to sweating. You can burn up to 700 calories per hour in the sauna. It does not have the chi machine, but it is a great detoxifier!
Is there any difference between a far infrared sauna and steam saunas?
Let’s get started by talking about those who are just looking for a traditional sauna. So what’s wrong with getting one of them? Absolutely nothing. They’re fine, and for short sessions they feel great. Unfortunately, the traditional sauna does come up short in many of the benefits you could be experiencing from using a far infrared sauna.
First, the temperature that the traditional sauna needs to reach for your body to sweat is way too high to safely handle for any extended period of time. Doctors typically say that anything longer than 20 minutes at those high temperatures is not good for your body. In fact, it could actually be putting a strain on your heart.
This is the exact opposite of what you could expect from using a far infrared sauna. Because the far infrared sauna’s heat penetrates the body much deeper (up to 1 3/4 inches compared to the traditional sauna which only penetrates approximately 1/8 of an inch), your body can get a good detoxifying sweat going at about 120 degrees as compared to 180 degrees required from a traditional sauna.
Many doctors are starting to recommend a far infrared sauna to their patients for many ailments, some of which are inflammation, weight loss, lowering cholesterol, and lowering blood pressure! Another amazing advantage of this deep penetrating heat is its ability to detoxify the body. The heat pulls out toxins deep under the skin and exfoliates them through the skin. Toxins like mercury, lead, car emissions, tobacco, mold and hundreds of other pollutants our bodies are bombarded with on a daily basis.
By detoxifying the body of these pollutants we are able to stop them from accumulating in our system and in doing so prevent possible disease and premature aging of our skin, body and mind. At the same time, we are strengthening our immune system which keeps us running at our peak.
It is a portable unit that has wheels, which makes it convenient for folks who need help in more
than one isolated area . Since FIR rays only travel in the area that is covered by the machine being used, you must have a whole body unit (Soqi Bed) which we do, or you need to be able to move the machine to different body parts easily.Both of our spas have a Soqi Bed.
We do charge a cancellation and No Show fee. Please refer to our Spa Etiquette & Guidelines page to read full details.
