WARM UP TIME: Many units require 10-20 minutes
minimum warm up time.The SOQI
dome sauna heats up immediately.
HEAT RANGE: Many have temperature ranges
that fluctuate dramatically. The SOQI dome sauna heat
is set and constant.
DANGERS: 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.
PROXIMITY: Traditional sauna units have the
source of far infrared too far
away from the body to have optimal impact.
The far infrared emitter
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.
MEDICAL DEVICE: The SOQI
dome far infrared sauna is officially
classified and recognized as a medical device
countries, including Japan, Australia, Canada.
SIZE: 'One size
fits all' copycat igloo saunas, do not typically
accommodate larger bodies. The Far
Infrared SOQI dome
sauna comes in two sizes to accommodate bodies
below or over 180 lbs, the latter is known as the
Grande Far Infrared Dome.
Many far infrared saunas, especially the
traditional saunas, are considered unsanitary
due to sweating and require clothing removal.
You do not have to remove clothing under the SOQI
dome. No cleaning or wipe
down of the dome is needed.
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.
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
for maximum penetration and benefit.
Electro magnetic frequencies

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

electric water kettles and smart meters - all
of which are used by millions of people daily
- are extremely dangerous to the human body.
phones when consistently used next to the head,

damaging EMF to the bodies cellular structure,
intensified by the close proximity on a daily
basis, and the accumulation of long term constant
has unfortunately become a
major debate between traditional sauna
companies, all vying for sales with their wooden
units. It is true that some of them do emit
higher levels as they are large units generating
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 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.
You will NOT lose
serious weight using far infrared saunas, if
at all. Traditional Far Infrared heat
therapy in Asia and Europe is used for
relief, reduction and removal of pain,
swelling and inflammation, serious
toxins (such as heavy metals,
drugs, pesticides, chemicals etc), improved
circulation, accelerated healing, tissue
regeneration, relaxation and other healing
