What is a Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna?


Have you heard the term “full spectrum technology”, but not sure what it means?

Whether you are a seasoned home sauna owner or new to the lifestyle, we can all benefit from a refresher on some of the key terms and technology behind Jacuzzi® Saunas.

In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at what full spectrum technology is and how it’s utilized within every unit.

Keep reading or visit your local Wellness Shop showroom to get started.

What is Infrared Therapy?

Before we dive into the technology, let’s first take a look at the basics of infrared therapy. Infrared heat therapy uses wavelengths of both the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight, which heats the body normally.

The human body can benefit from sunlight in many ways, such as warmth to help regulate temperature and vitamin D for energy and overall health.

There are three levels of infrared heat, which benefit the body in different ways:

  • Near Infrared Heat: Targets the surface of the skin which makes you feel better physically, rejuvenates the skin, raises your core body temperature, boosts your immune system, and improves circulation. Many people enjoy near infrared heat for the pain relief that it can provide.
  • Mid Infrared Heat: Targets the soft tissue which helps with pain relief, improved circulation and even weight loss.
  • Far Infrared Heat: This infrared heat penetrates deeply into the body which can aid in detoxification, increase your metabolism, aid in weight loss, and help to reduce stress, among other health benefits.

In an infrared sauna, far infrared waves will penetrate deep into the body to activate the sweat glands. Did you know that the sweat glands provide one of the few ways that the body can eliminate toxins?

In fact, since the skin is the largest organ of the human body, it’s very effective for toxin elimination. This is one of the many ways that infrared heat can benefit you and improve your lifestyle.

The human body is compromised of 70% water. When far infrared waves penetrate the body, the water molecules begin to vibrate, reducing the ion bonds. When the water molecules in your body eventually break down, the encapsulated gases and other toxic materials can be released.

TrueWave™ Full Spectrum Technology

All Jacuzzi® Sauna models are equipped with TrueWave™ Full Spectrum infrared heaters. The heaters are designed for higher outputs, enabling them to produce near, mid and far infrared.

With 1,000 watts of full spectrum infrared, sauna owners and users can expect improvements in their health and lifestylethat are not only rapid, but of higher quality.

TrueWave™ Far Infrared Heaters combine both carbon and ceramic materials, so they can provide sauna owners with high-quality, long-wave infrared heat in a way that is powerful. They emit more infrared heat over a longer timespan, enabling them to be more effective and therapeutic with a wider range.

The heaters are compromised of micro-thin carbon fibres that are 1/1000th the thickness of a strand of hair. They are combined with patented micro-fine ceramic compound for a higher infrared output, also known as emissivity.

The full spectrum cedar and basswood sauna models include:

Full Spectrum Sauna Technology

While inside of a Jacuzzi® Infrared Sauna, the user is surrounded by infrared heat. This heat is generated by the TrueWave™ far infrared heaters, which are located on the back, side walls, under the bench, next to your calves, and in the floor of the sauna.

On the front wall, you can find TrueWave™ full spectrum heaters. All infrared heating technology is low EMF and low ELF, resulting in a safe and reliable option.

Relaxing in a full spectrum infrared sauna can lead to a number of health benefitsand improvements, including but not limited to:

  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Eased muscle tension
  • Soothed joint pain
  • More energy and less fatigue
  • Better appearance of skin and cellulite
  • Weight control and loss
  • Less stress and more relaxation

These heaters are safe and tested to ensure the best experience possible for all of our customers. Once production is complete, each sauna is assembled and tested for hours as part of a rigorous quality control process. The sauna is then disassembled, packaged and shipped to your front door.

The electrical system is already installed and fully-functional, so all you have to worry about is assembling the sauna and plugging it in.
