Your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna is completely safe and produces the same far infrared heat produced by the sun. The Far-infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health. The radiant heat from your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna surrounds you and penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation. Using your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna helps to remove impurities from your cells, specifically the cells inside our fat where our body stores waste and harmful toxins such as cholesterol and heavy metals. When used properly, your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna will help provide a lifetime of healthful living.
Completely harmless, we feel far infrared heat from such sources as the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off) and fires. Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light: longer wavelength infrared waves are thermal, while short or near infrared waves are not hot at all, in fact, you cannot even feel them. It is the far infrared energy that is most beneficial, penetrating the skin and increasing circulation to help rid the body of harmful toxins.
As you relax in the gentle far infrared heat, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart will work harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost circulation. This increase in your metabolism will burn calories.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, "Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a Sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise."
Day Spas and Medi-Spas around the world are using Infrared Saunas more and more to help eliminate cellulite. Since the far infrared radiant heat of the Clearlight sauna warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.

The deep heat of your Clearlight sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate,
bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries.
Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and
delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they
Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm,for greater flexibility and range of motion. Far Infrared heat relieves muscle tension and thereby helping your body
to make the most of its intended healing abilities. Infrared heat reduces
soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated.
Your Clearlight Sauna's deep heating True Wave II™ infrared heaters will raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. Fever is the body's natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection.
This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
Infrared Sauna heat increases your blood circulation and stimulates
the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins in the body.
Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.
"Traditional wisdom has suggested that saunas work largely by promoting detoxification through the sweat… Saunas also stimulate cells to release toxins which can then be eliminated by the liver and bowel. Several published studies have now shown that this hypothermic therapy can bring about the rapid removal of a wide range of toxic substances from the human body." John C. Cline, M.D., B.Sc., C.C.F.P., A.B.C.T., Medical Director of the Cline Medical Centre and Oceanside Functional Medicine Research Institute, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
"The best way to get rid of heavy metals and pesticide residues? The infrared sauna. It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals, including heavy metals. In fact, sauna is one of the detoxification procedures used in the Environmental Units in Dallas (Dr. William Rea) and North Charleston (Dr. Allan Lieberman) where the sickest of folks go to heal. But many people, myself included, never could tolerate a sauna. We felt weak, sick, fast heart rate, faint, dizzy, headachy, or just miserable. Thanks to improved technology, the infrared sauna is tolerated much better, because it uses a heat energy that penetrates the tissues better, allowing an overall lower temperature to be used.” Dr. Sherry Rogers, Total Wellness, May 2000
Cellulite is a common term used to describe superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or "orange peel" skin. It appears in 90% post adolescent women (almost all women over the age of 20 have cellulite to some degree) and is rarely seen in men.
Common but not exclusive areas where cellulite is found, are the buttocks, thighs, and the abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, since it occurs in overweight, average, and thin women. The appearance of cellulite is not always reduced by weight loss.
Cellulite occurs in the subcutaneous fat layer just beneath your skin. Your skin is connected to the underlying muscle by vertical strands of tissue. The combination of this connective tissue pulling in on your skin and fatty deposits and fibrosis pushing out against your skin cause the dimpled appearance of cellulite.
Since the far infrared radiant heat of the Clearlight sauna warms three times as deep as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite. There is a direct link between the slowing of metabolic rates and the storage of toxins in fat cells. Sauna use and infrared heat can increase heart rate and localized blood circulation, which essentially reverses the above-mentioned trends towards the accumulation of liquids in the fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite
In many countries radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients
suffering from many forms of arthritis. Radiant heat has also been
effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms,
joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the
stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.

After a number of small-ish roles in decent films (Secretary, Saving Private Ryan), Rescue Dawn's Jeremy Davies decided to study film directing — and ended up getting a number of plum acting roles in the process. Vulture caught up with the diminutive talent, whose ribs are on alarming display in the film, at a dinner at Osteria del Circo following the movie’s premiere. He stood around, flirted with Paz de la Huerta, drank water, and didn't eat a thing.
Well, you look a hell of a lot better than you did in the movie.
I lost 33 pounds from this weight, which is pretty skinny. I weigh, like, 137-ish now. This is normal, believe it or not. I’ve always been pathologically skinny.
Did you get sick from losing all that weight?
It was easy to do, and I know how to do it in a healthy way. The secret is using a far infrared sauna, which is at the same frequency as your body heat. It sounds wildly scientific, but basically it gets you heated much more quickly and gets you sweating faster.
That doesn't sound easy. How’d you meet Werner?
I sought Werner out, and I did the same with Lars von Trier. I wrote Lars a letter and said, “I think you’re one of the greatest filmmakers in the world, and I’d love the privilege of coming to watch you.” And he invited me out and made me take a small role in his film Dogville, which I didn’t even want. He’s one of my best friends now.
He got in touch with me out of the blue because he’d seen a demo tape that I’d made. I was supposed to play Charles Manson for an independent film that never came together, and I shot myself rehearsing. I edited it down to twenty minutes, and that tape got bootlegged around town. [Steven] Soderbergh cast me in Solaris because of that. Years later, Werner got ahold of it. And against his better judgment, he cast me.
What lessons did he teach you as a director?
I recognized something in Werner that I’d recognized in all the great directors I’d worked with. It’s the desire to create what I like to call an unrepeatable moment, a moment you can’t write down in a script. It’s anti-Xerox. It’s a director who’s unafraid of an actor being jazz. You can only point to it after you’ve shot it. You can’t really describe it.
