LuxSpas Elite C202 Infrared Sauna Review
In this LuxSpas Elite C202 infrared sauna review I’ll look at this new and unique kind of home sauna which utilizes 100% 7-14 micron emitter compressed carbon panel heaters in order to produce far infrared heat. This type of heater means this Infrared sauna heat penetrates deeply into and beneath the skin to stimulate significant perspiration. This is important because it means far more toxins are elimintaed from your body by this type of perspiration, and with a heating area of 3,400 square inches, this is one of the most efficient Infrared Saunas on the market today.
Infrared Sauna Detox and Health Benefits
Other known health benefits include body detox, weight loss, combat the signs of aging, strengthen the immune system, combat arthritis and help to free you of muscle and joint pain.
Among the various Infrared sauna benefits, the most prominent one is that it delivers dry heat similar to what you find in a desert and they make sure that a minimum level of energy is consumed for this delivery. As a matter of fact, the LuxSpas infrared sauna consumes only as much electricity as your hair dryer!
In this review we are going to look specifically at the Lux Spa C202 Infrared Sauna. But, before we do that I’ll take a quick look at what the Lux Infrared Sauna offers in terms of the health benefits that you gain from a far infrared sauna.
Infrared Sauna Heat Is Different
Firstly, the far infrared heat rays (like the rays of the sun) are capable of penetrating deeply in the body and that allows for the heating of subcutaneous fat. O.K, I know what is subcutaneous fat? Quite simply it’s the fat that lays under the skin layers at around 1 ½ – 2” deep. This heating process actually enables the melting of fat in your body and hence allows the toxins to be released and therefore removed from the body through heavy perspiration.
An Infrared sauna can also play a role in the cellulite reduction and their action produces a mild fever reaction in the body. This “fever response”
although very mild actually stimulates the immune system and makes it far stronger so you can fight of infection more easily. It also helps blood flow to muscle tissue and internal organs.
The LuxSpas Elite C202 Infrared Sauna
So, what about the LuxSpas Elite C202 Infrared Sauna Specifically?
Certainlt the LuxSpas Elite range are up there with the best Infrared Saunas on the market. Firstly, it looks just stunning. With it’s absolute non-out gassing, non-toxic Solid Spruce Tongue & Groove interior and beautiful Cedar exterior it really is a work of art! The craftmanship is superb.
With a neatly windowed door and a comfortable interior, not only does this sauna look good, it is comfy for longer sessions in the sauna (infrared heat doesn’t heat the air anywhere near as hot as heat based saunas so you can stay in far longer without discomfort).
Indeed the seating is LuxSpas special Elite free-flow seating design. Not only does this allow the heat to fully circulate to your back, legs, thighs and bottucks, they are really comfortable. Free flow contoured lumber back rests are an additional extra if you wish.
I mentioned earlier that the heaters heat at 7-14 microns. This is now generally accepted by the medical profession (via clinical trials) to be the heat level that provides the best and highest level health benefits. This frequency heating is the best and LuxSpa heaters are the most efficient available and this model heats up to 151F (you don’t need the extreme heat to make you sweat in an Infrared Sauna).
Do be wary of cheap Chinese immitations – they are not as good for you and in some cases may even be dangerous. Stick to a brand name and LuxSpas if you can.
Power usage is 120V /13.34AMPS / 1600 Watts and your LuxSpa Elite C202 will come with all safety certificates including EMP safety certificate. Again, make sure your infrared sauna has the relevant safety certification.
Two Person Corner Unit Home Infrared Sauna
The C202 is a two person sauna and at 48 x 48 depth and 72 inches in height, there is plenty of room for two people in some comfort. It’s also a corner unit, so you can actually talk to the person in the sauna with you more easily. I have to admit to quite a strong preference for a corner unit, but each to his own.
And, as you’ll be spending more time in your sauna, you’ll need entertainment.
CD Player, Radio and MP3 Player Included
The LuxSpa Elite C202 comes equipped with an AM/FM radio and CD player – there’s even a prt for your iPOd (or other MP3 player). Whilst the CD player comes with a one year warranty, the Sauna itself is supported by a LifeTime guarantee. I have to say I find that particularly impressive. There are very few companies these days that will stand by their workmanship like that. It’s a very big reason to go for a LuxSpas Infrared Sauna
in my opinion!
More and more people are starting to use Infared Saunas as part of their health and fitness regime. And it’s easy to see why when a 30 minute session can burn the same amount of calories as a two mile run. Yes, the outlay is quite expensive, the C202 comes in at $2,795, but…when you compare to the cost of Spa or club membership, lost travel time and the cheapness of running once installed, you can see why more and more people are going for a home sauna.
If you are looking for a two person home sauna then, there is not much better on the market than the c202. I hope you have found this LuxSpas Elite C202 Infrared Sauna review helpful and that it has helped your Infrared Sauna buying decsion.
Please feel free to post questions, I’ll be happy to answer them.
