Many units require 10-20 minutes minimum warm up
dome sauna heats up immediately.
Many have temperature ranges that fluctuate
dramatically. The SOQI
dome sauna heat is set and constant.
Many far infrared sauna pose the danger of
overheating and dehydration, air temperature can
become unbearable. The Far Infrared dome sauna
poses no such danger as overheating of the user
does not occur.
The gentle far infrared ray
penetrating the body feel more like the 70's
temperature wise. The pure far infrared heat of
the SOQI dome does not cause hydration, unlike a
closed, intensely hot traditional sauna does.
1) Many do not
have an electronic thermostat or overload
shut-off for safety. The SOQI
dome sauna has a built in regulator.
2) Most of the ceramic heaters
have some kind of protective face guard because
they are so hot that if you accidentally touch
them you will get hurt. The SOQI dome surface
will not cause this to happen as it has a
silicone crystal chip surface.
Traditional sauna units have the source of far
far away from the
body to have optimal impact. The far infrared emitting
surface must be
as close to the body as possible. The SOQI Far Infrared dome sauna
is within inches of the body.
A traditional sauna wooden box
unit which people sit in, is hard pressed to
provide optimal Far Infrared benefit as the
source of far infrared being emitted is not
within inches of the body, but feet. The
further the body is from the Far Infrared waves,
which travel in straight lines, the lesser the
impact and benefits.
The SOQI Dome

regulated and recognized as a medical device

Infrared resonant absorption
for maximum healing benefits.
a) The correct term
is FAR INFRARED. Near Infrared
units are a completely different healing
modality which may incorporate light therapy
from colored light bulbs.
b) Far Infrared rays penetrates the
skin about 2 to 2 1/2 inches - not 4 or 5 inches
as some traditional sauna claim.
c) Far Infrared Ray should
ideally be 8-10 microns to benefit the human
body. Many traditional units are above 11
or below 7 microns so there is less to zero
benefit, as the ray are no longer Far Infrared
because they move into different spectrums,
microwave or mid-infrared.
d) Traditional far
infrared sauna imply the entire body is bathed
in Far Infrared. In fact the units have only a
few scattered sources emitting far infrared ray.
Apart from being too far away from the FIR
source to benefit the body, traditional far
infrared saunas simply miss the human target, or
are absorbed into the wood which benefits
Far Infrared must be close
to the body
for maximum penetration and benefit.
Electro magnetic frequencies

on frequency and wavelength, with consistent,
regular exposure, has been proven to be harmful.

major debate between traditional sauna

Check and be sure the EMF frequency of any far
infrared unit you consider is
a) below 3.0 milligauss
(ideally around 2.0),
b) that the far
infrared ray are between 7-11 microns,
c) and that the
far infrared rays are in close proximity to the
The SOQI Far
Infrared Dome meets these requirements and poses no threat to
the health of the body, measuring just past 2.0
milligauss on a TriField Meter.
