3 reasons to consider a clinically-tested infrared sauna

Infrared saunas are understandably a product that must be well-researched.

We want to help you weigh up the pros and cons so you can be well informed about the different technologies available.

What is 3-in-1 infrared heat and what are its potential health benefits? Where does Solocarbon™ heating technology come into this? How important is the heater design to a quality sauna experience?

In this article, we will explain the dramatic improvements that have been seen in recent years due to extensive research and development. Here are some reasons to ensure that your sauna is clinically-backed:

Reason 1 - Wellness Benefits

The importance of your wellbeing has led us to create a cutting-edge experience. Wellness outcomes have been the foundation of the exploration into new technologies, including 3-in-1 infrared therapy.

3-in-1 infrared therapy was designed using patented Solocarbon™ heating technology and is unique in its ability to provide a combination of near, mid and far infrared heat at optimal wavelengths.

So what does this mean for your health and wellness?

Research has shown that combinations of near, mid and far infrared heat can assist with a variety of wellness outcomes. For example, in an mPulse sauna, you can use the detoxification program which runs for 37 minutes at low heat, using a blend of mid and far infrared heat as a preventative tool to assist overall health.

This program aims to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, it can heat your core to help expel them and as a result, regular usage can engage a truly deep, productive sweat where toxins reside.

Reason 2 - Heater Design

There are different types of heaters on the market and the type of heater determines how different wavelengths are emitted. Your expectations around wellness outcomes have led us to investigate the benefits of effective heater design.

Did you know that heaters must be highly emissive in order to control different wavelengths? The term ‘emissive’ refers to the ability of a material to absorb and release energy in the form of infrared heat.

Solocarbon™ 3-in-1 infrared heaters have multiple layers of components that each offer near, mid and far infrared heat and have been introduced to generate heat at different peak wavelengths. The heat sensors work to keep wavelengths at a consistent heat output for maximum comfort and results. See third-party study here

Reason 3 - EMF levels

We acknowledge that safety and effectiveness are among your highest priorities. For this reason, comprehensive third party testing has been undertaken to assess the EMF levels in Solocarbon™ heaters.

The third party results confirmed that Solocarbon™ heating technology produces virtually no EMF and the manufacturing process actually cancels out EMF to levels that are essentially undetectable. Therefore, you can rest easy knowing that you are in a comfortable, safe and beneficial environment. 


Infrared saunas are a relatively new concept for some people and these are a few factors to consider. If you want to learn about infrared heat, check out our simple infographic that explains it for you.
