Sauna FAQs: 888-LuxSauna

Q. What is Far Infrared Therapy?
A. LuxSauna is excited to bring you a new realm in achieving extraordinary health and relaxation. The Infrared LuxSauna Radiant Therapy Room promotes detoxification of heavy metals and toxins from embedded fat and releasing it through sweat and the blood stream. It also increases circulation and oxygen supply to damaged tissues, relieves pain and operates at temperatures significantly less than a typical hot sauna or steam room.

Q. How is a Far Infrared Sauna Different from Other Baths?
A. A Sauna is an insulated room built of non toxic wood along with far infrared heater combinations which are capable of heating the room to about 150 0 F. A combination of Ceramic and Carbon Far Infrared heaters emit heat that is on the same micron scale as the human body. Because 93% of this heat matches the (far infrared spectrum) on the micron scale, it penetrates virtually at the speed of light – because there is no resistance. Therefore, at only 120 F you will find it produces between 300% - 500% more sweat than conventional saunas. LuxSauna Far Infrared Saunas provide soothing heat, radiated directly to your body to assist in relieving pain, aches, and strains. LuxSauna Far Infrared Saunas offer their own unique features and benefits. Unlike a traditional sauna where temperatures range from 180 to 210, infrared saunas range from 105 to 140. These simple-to-assemble modular rooms heat quickly and penetrate deeply to alleviate muscle tension, induce deep relaxation and promote restful, satisfying sleep.

Q. Where Can a Sauna be Installed in a Home?
A. Anywhere that space permits. Popular locations are in an exercise area, master bathroom, near a shower, basement, garage, patio, or by a pool.

Q. How Long Does it Take to Install a Sauna?
A. A pre-built LuxSauna Far Infrared Sauna can take as little as 30 minutes to assemble and install from one of our far infrared sauna kits.

Q. What is Sauna's History and its Benefits?
A. ThThe rich tradition of an authentic sauna - enjoyed by people throughout the world for over 2,000 years - has truly been perfected in America. Sauna, pronounced "sow (like how) nah", is the only Finnish word in the English dictionary, and it means "bath" and the "bathhouse." Sauna has been a way of life for over 2000 years in Finland, where it was invented.

FFinns who settled in Delaware in 1638 first brought the sauna to America, and one of their first saunas was built where the Philadelphia City Hall now stands. After 350 years, the sauna is more popular than ever and has become an established tradition for many people in America today.

The sauna offers many health benefits. Medical studies have shown that frequent sauna bathing helps reduce stress, keeps your system toned and eliminates body toxins through perspiration.

Q. How do I Maintain the Lux Sauna?
A. It is recommended that users take a shower prior to entering the sauna room. Before sitting or reclining on benches, place a towel under each person to absorb perspiration.

CLEANING:
Sweep or vacuum periodically (at least once a week if used heavily) to remove dirt, hair, etc.. from the sauna interior. Wipe walls where people have touched them (e.g. above benches, around doors, and controls) as needed. Use a damp cloth or sponge with a mild solution of soap and water and then rinse well with a damp cloth and plain water. DO NOT USE TOO MUCH WATER as the wood will tend to turn dark. NEVER hose down the interior of a sauna room

NEVER hose down the interior of a sauna room.

CARE OF INTERIOR:
If the interior walls have been scratched or dented, they may be smoothed by a light hand sanding using fine grade sandpaper. If the wood has darkened (this usually takes a long time) it may be restored by applying a special chemical treatment. These stains are easily removed by using a solution of:

  1. 4 ounces Oxalic Acid Crystals per gallon of warm water
  2. 1 cup of trisodium phosphate (TSP)
  3. Use a NON-METALLIC container only.

Apply the solution to the entire area at one time, using a cloth or soft brush. When the wood dries, rinse with clear water. More than one application may be necessary.

CAUTION: Oxalic Acid is poisonous and special precautions must be taken. Wear goggles and rubber gloves and be careful not to let the acid or solution touch your skin or eyes.

NEVER apply paint, stain or other chemical finishes or sealant to the interior of the sauna. The heat of the room may cause the surface to become too hot to the touch or cause toxic fumes to be released.
