What is Sonne?
Sonne in German means Sun, the energy that powers life on earth.
What is Sonne Far Infrared Sauna?
- Sonne FIR Sauna FIR works by using radiant heat.
- Radiant heat warms objects and people without warming the air around them.
- The sun energy is mostly (80%) produced in the infrared segment of the spectrum.
- Sonne FIR Sauna penetrates the body at depth of 1.5" inches.
- Sonne FIR Sauna is said to duplicate the healthy frequency of our own cells. The water in the cells react in a process call "resonant absorption" (when frequency of FIR and water matches).
- The resonance facilitates the metabolism of cells. Uptake of nutrients and excretion of residues from cells in human tissue are enhanced?
> The benefits of Sonne Far Infrared Sauna
CardiovascularThe Journal of American College of Cardiology reported that repeated sauna sessions may have a preventive role in people with cardiovascular risk factors  (i.e high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, obesity and inactivity). The Japan Heart Journal reported that repeated FIR sessions may protect against oxidative stress, which leads to the prevention of atherosclerosis  (fatty material that collects along the walls of blood vessels in the heart). The Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that the regular use of a sauna may impact a similar stress on the cardiovascular system (as exercise) and its regular use may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning calories as regular exercise. Smokers will benefit significantly from Sonne as an American Journal showed that cigarette smoke extract inhibits the production of nitric oxide in the lungs which may lead to lung and heart diseases in smokers. Sonne ray has been demonstrated to increase nitric oxide production.  The combination of diet, exercise and repeated Sonne sauna therapy may be the best method for preventing life-style related diseases and to protect your heart.
BeautyThe Yonsei Medical Journal of Korea reported that the use of FIR significantly reduces roughness of the skin, fine wrinkles and increases tightness. They reported that FIR increases collagen and elastin contents by stimulating fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen). Therefore it is an effective non-ablative remodeling method to treat photo-aged skin.  Sonne is excellent in increasing blood circulation to the skin, which is essential for beautiful, youthful and glowing skin,
Weight LossAn excellent addition to your weight loss program. Burn up to 600 calories in just one 30-minute session.
Relaxation & EnjoymentSonne removes stress using a comfortable temperature. It balances your autonomic nervous system. It allows parasympathetic nervous system which is responsible for the nourishing, healing and regeneration of the body to take over.
Pain ReliefPain may be relieved via the reduction of secondary muscle spasms. Pain is also at times related to ischemia (lack of oxygen) due to tension or spasm, which can be improved by Sonne.
Anti -AgingSonne promotes anti-aging through:
- Beauty: Improves collagen content, reduces fine wrinkles and roughness of the skin.  Promotes blood flow, which allows delivery of sufficient nutrients, oxygen and removal of waste products from the skin - resulting in glowing skin.
- Healthy: Improves cardiovascular conditioning.  A healthy body precedes beauty. Look fresh and lively.
- Rejuvenation: a stressful working environment increases sympathetic activities and leads to feeling of fatigue, as this system uses up energy and depletes the body. Sonne balances the autonomic nerves systems, allowing parasympathetic system which is responsible for nourishing, healing and regeneration of the body to take dominance.
