FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I have a sauna, why can’t I just add a halogenerator to the enclosure and offer both in the same enclosure?
Salt is highly corrosive, even in a dry environment. Salt particles will find their way into the electrical components of a sauna and eventually short it out. Additionally, there is an optimal, gradual temperature increase and length of time to effectively enhance the benefit of Halotherapyin a heated environment. The perfect integration of both modalities and the ideal balance to maximize the efficacy of both modalities. This technology, Haloprotectant ™, has been extensively studied and integrated into the HALO-IR.
Is “heated” Halotherapy more effective than non-heated?
Yes, when the air is dry and warm, it will allow for deeper penetration and better absorbency of the salt particles in the bronchi. Halotherapy at low levels of heat enhances the experience and efficacy of Halotherapy.
What are the 4 options of therapy offered in the HALO-IR and how were the times and settings determined?
How does an infrared component of the HALO-IR work?
The idea behind infrared therapy is to heat your body directly with infrared heat. In a traditional sauna you are just sitting in a hot room, 180-220 degrees. In an infrared sauna, theheat is heating your body directly and 20% of the heat is heating the air. You want to heat your body core, meaning your front core and your back core. Your body absorbs the infrared heat and reacts to it.
What are the benefits of the HALO-IR over other Halotherapy products?
The HALO-IRsupports an elevated wellness experience, 2 highly effective and detoxifying modalities in 1 session, Maximizes the efficacy of both modalities, Halotherapy at low levels of heat enhances the efficacy of Halotherapy, full benefit of a full spectrum sauna session, a true 4 in 1 product offering more options for your customer.
Will I need to hire an electrician?
Standard household electrical outlets are 120 volts. Most are rated at 15 amps and some, like bathrooms or kitchens, may be rated at 20 amps.Our HALO-IR (1-2 person) runs off of a standard 110 outlet, 15 amps. The HALO-IR (2-3person), runs off of a standard 110, but requires 20 amps. Please review the specification for the model you are interested in to see the electrical requirement.
What is the optimum infrared frequency for the HALO-IR?
The infrared frequency of the far infrared heater, in the HALO-IR, is determined by the surface temperature of the heater itself. The lower the surface temperature of the heater, the longer the infrared wave and the more beneficial the infrared heat will be.
What about EMF & ELF?
Your health and safety are our number one focus. True Wave™ far infrared and full spectrum infrared heaters are the most effective and safest infrared heaters available. This modality of Infrared Sauna® models are the only ONLY infrared sauna that cancels out both EMF and ELF. Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) are energy waves with frequencies below 300 hertz or cycles per second. Extremely low frequency (ELF) are the electric fields with frequencies from 3 to 30 hertz.
What is the HALO-IR Made of?
North American Basswood is a “white” wood with a yellow to whitish color. Basswood has a very dense cellular structure making it stronger, more stable and sweat resistant. It is also resistant to cracking and splitting. Basswood is also considered hypoallergenic. It has almost no odor and is one of the only woods not considered a “sensitizer” for people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
How do I maintain and clean my HALO-IR?
The HALO-IR requires very little cleaning, and there are no regular maintenance tasks or parts to replace for the enclosure itself, and minimal maintenance and cleaning for the halogenerator. Infrared provides dry heat; the only moisture produced is from your own perspiration. The enclosed cabins keep out dust and dirt. The ceramic compound in the True Wave heaters naturally produces a lot of negative ions that help purify the air. Treat the exterior like any piece of fine furniture. You can occasionally wipe the interior down with a sauna cleaner or make one of your own. Use a moist towel – don’t spray directly onto the heater panels. To make your own: A few drops of a high quality essential oil in water (examples are Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Arborvitae, Lavender, Lemon); a solution of 1T baking soda and water.
Is infrared heat safe?
Infrared heat is completely safe and all objects give off and receive infrared heat. In fact, it is so safe, hospitals use similar heaters to warm newborns. Infrared is a part of nature and essential for life.
Is Halotherapy safe?
Yes. Halotherapy is a completely drug-free treatment, safe for of all ages. Depending on the age and treatment goals, session times and concentration levels may be adjusted. Please consult your physician with any concerns.
