Infrared Sauna at Apogii Clinic Notting Hill
Infrared Sauna by Physiotherm®
The Physiotherm Infrared Sauna is a cabin system that delivers gentle whole-body low temperature treatment. The principle differs from the way a sauna, biosauna or other commercial heated cabins work by using innovative approach to infrared technology to apply heat very gently, efficiently and safely.
The two most important components are the patented ceramic radiator filled with lava sand and the low-temperature infrared technology with a built in SENSOcare®. This is a unique technology that enables optimum heat penetration for each and every user by continuously measuring the skin temperature on their back via the sensors attached to the infrared element. It continuously controls the infrared intensity and automatically tailor it to each individual user, without having to adjust the settings manually.
This system delivers safe treatments in a reclining position, so you can relax and let the soothing heat get to work on your body.
The result is that heat is distributed in an optimised, personalised, comfortable and completely safe way.

How does the infrared sauna work?
To achieve easily tolerated whole-body heating, the low-temperature infrared cabin is operated within the air temperature between 27 and 37 °C.
Infrared radiation is applied evenly and contact-free via skin on the back with a specially developed radiator. The heat is then distributed from an area of the back via the blood. The gently heated blood flows to the inside of the body and the body temperature gently and continuously increases from the start. The applied heat is then gradually distributed from the inside (the core) to the outside of the body via a change in circulation and the distribution of blood.
The body is then heated throughout and can shed excess heat more easily by expanding the blood vessels in the skin and by sweating at a comfortable temperature of 37 degrees or above.
The Physiotherm principle therefore puts only a low strain on the circulation system, even in sessions of more than 30 minutes.
