Far infrared is a vital radiation of the sun and a natural and essential factor of growth and healing on earth. Infratherapy was born in Japan 50 years ago and is based on the emission and control of infrared for healing and wellness purposes.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRADITIONAL SAUNA AND A VITAL DOME ?
In a traditional sauna, a boiler heats the air to a temperature of 80° C to 110° C.
The resulting sweat contains mainly water and minerals. The session is about half an hour, alternating with cold showers.
With the Vital Dome, its the internal temperature of the body which increases under the action of infrared radiation which triggers a strong sweating identical to that generated during a sustained physical effort (running or cycling).
HOW LONG IS A VITAL DOME SESSION ?
The average session duration is 30 to 45 minutes, about 15 minutes after the start of the session, most users begin to perspire. Always ensure that you are hydrated to initiate the sweating process.
HOW MANY SESSIONS PER WEEK CAN I HAVE?
In order to benefit fully from the beneficial effects of your sessions (Detox, relaxation, firmness of the skin, joint wellness …) it is advisable to make minimum 1 session per week and maximum 4 (except during cures of attack where we can do 1 session / day the first week).
HOW LONG DOES THE VITAL DOME REACH THE DESIRED TEMPERATURE?
It takes less than 5 minutes to reach the target temperature.
WHAT IS THE SECRET TO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE VITAL DOME?
The combination of relaxing warmth and detoxification results in considerable relief from many ailments.
The long-term effects of far infrared rays stimulate metabolic processes, increase general resistance.
The body purifies and strengthens itself a little more during each session. Infrared helps to purify our cells, especially the fat cells where our body stores harmful waste and toxins, such as chemical residues and heavy metals.
CAN THE VITAL DOME CONTRIBUTE TO WEIGHT LOSS?
Yes, through the elimination of toxins and fats, as well as stimulation of metabolism.
Research shows that a 40-minute session burns up to 600 calories. Sweating as well as stimulation of the heart and blood vessels constitute a passive form of cardiovascular training.
I have silicone implants or injections of collagen or hyaluronic acid,
I have pins or metal plates in the body,
Can I use the VITAL Dome without fear?
There are no contraindications for silicone implants or collagen or hyaluronic acid injections. The latter melt at 200°C.
Is long infrared harmful ?
Far infrared emission techniques are used in many health-related fields. The human body receives daily infrared radiation from the sun. Naturally, the body re-emits these waves, which are called “vital light”.
DO I TAKE A SHOWER AFTERWARDS?
Showering immediately after is neither helpful or recommended to prolong the effects of your session. We recommend to let your body cool down naturally before having a shower.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR IN THE VITAL DOME?
All rooms at our Geelong wellness studio are private, so we welcome you to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.
