***If you live outside the US, you will need the 220V Sauna International Version***
The Synergy Sauna™ portable full spectrum (near and far) infrared sauna provides deep penetrating and detoxifying therapeutic heat through the use of infrared rays.
Enjoy the protection from electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and extremely low frequencies (ELFs), also known as electric fields. Our carbon heating panels are ULTRA LOW EMF panels (less than 1 mG on average) and ULTRA LOW ELF (average 150mV to 200mV)
We use ultra-sensitive EMF equipment to test our saunas’ EMFs. As a common note, electromagnetic fields are measured in milligauss (mG). It is commonly accepted in Europe and the US that exposure to EMFs should not exceed 3 milligauss. The EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) has proposed a safety standard of 3 mG. After using ultra-sensitive EMF equipment, all of our readings come back virtually undetectable at a less than 1 mG reading.
Extremely low frequency radiation, also known as the electric fields, is at the lower-energy end of the electromagnetic spectrum. There is a threshold of concern level for ELF of 1,000mV. When we test our saunas with ELF technology, we come back with 150mV, which is five to six times less than the threshold of concern of 1000mV. Keep in mind that each individual’s threshold of concern may differ, as some people are more conductive than others due to conductive minerals in the body.
Whenever you detox your body through sweating, especially with the use of a sauna, it is important to:
1. Remain properly hydrated! Ideally, with Echo® H2 Water.
2. Replenish minerals lost through sweating!
- Wavelengths: The Synergy Sauna™ emits real full spectrum (near and far) infrared rays with wavelengths between 7 and 14 micrometers (μm) or between 7,000 and 14,000 Nano meters (nm), which is the beneficial range for humans (the longer penetrating waves). Since the human body is made up of 60-75% water, it absorbs infrared the best (the deepest heat penetration) at 9 μm. The Synergy Sauna™ is between 4 and 14 μm.

Some advantages of the Synergy Sauna™ far infrared sauna over a conventional sauna.
This high-quality Synergy Sauna™ full spectrum infrared portable sauna, with exclusive beneficial features, is very affordable and can be used in the privacy of your living environment without the need for large spaces and special communications to work it. The design includes the most desirable features that more expensive and fancy saunas include Ozone Therapy and Oxygen therapy. With this portable far infrared FIR sauna you can take it anywhere you go. It only weighs 19 lbs. The temperature range is 113°F -140°F. Typically the top temperature reaches 140°F within 5 minutes.
This full-spectrum infrared sauna applies hi-tech of super conductive and ultra-thin carbon fiber ultra-low EMF heating element. The high heat efficiency helps you perspire, activate the build, promote blood circulation, and keep the body healthy. 10 minutes of using the sauna bath corresponds to 30 minutes of jogging for exhaust sweat. With its satisfying design, your head and hands can extend out for reading, watching TV, or listening to music.
A conventional sauna heats the air in the chamber to a very high temperature, which in turn heats our body. A full spectrum infrared (FIR) sauna works differently. Neither oxygen molecules nor nitrogen molecules in the air can block the FIR wave; therefore, the FIR unique wavelength penetrates directly onto our body a couple of inches. It makes us feel quite warm and we perspire profusely, but the skin is not hurt by the hot air. Some heavy metals accumulate under our skin and the FIR sauna is very good for sweating out heavy metal deposits under our skin.
The beautiful slate grey colored Synergy Sauna™ matches and blends in the home environment. You will not have to put it away because it sticks out in your home. It looks good and can be left out if desired.
Infrared Sauna Detox – How to Get the Most Benefit
One of the primary reasons for using a sauna and possibly the most beneficial is that of detoxification. An infrared sauna detox can result in the elimination of heavy metals, chemicals and many other toxins that are detrimental to your health. While any sauna time can result in some amount of benefits, following some guidelines can safely increase the benefits significantly.
Infrared saunas typically result in a much better detox than traditional steam saunas. This is primarily due to the way they heat the body and the air, and also your skin temperature.
Lower Sauna Temperature = A Better Sauna Detox
Sweat fulfills two primary functions. It cools the body and it removes waste products out of the body, accomplishing this through two main types of sweat glands.
The Apocrine glands, which are located in areas such as the armpits and scalp, secrete sweat which contains higher levels of fats and organic compounds. The second group called Eccrine glands are scattered all over the body and handle most of the sweating process, numbering more than 2 million.
These Eccrine glands, over the course of a normal day, pump out nearly a quart of sweat. However, in a high-temperature steam sauna (180 degrees+ Fahrenheit), they produce this amount in only 15 minutes. Using an infrared sauna at 130-140 degrees Fahrenheit results in the same heavy amount of sweating. While this cleans the pores and skin, it is also excretes higher amounts of electrolytes. Using a sauna at these temperatures requires replacing the lost fluids and electrolytes.
However, using an infrared sauna at the lower temperatures of 110-125 degrees Fahrenheit results in a more fat-laden sweat and loses fewer electrolytes. In fact, at lower temperatures, the sweat from an infrared sauna session is comprised of up to 20% toxins compared to only 3% toxins in the sweat produced in a high-temperature steam sauna. This is the main reason the infrared sauna is the better sauna for detox purposes.
Some users report using the sauna at a lower temperature of 110-125 degrees Fahrenheit for the first 20 minutes and then raising the temperature to around 135 degrees Fahrenheit to produce a more profuse sweat for the final 10 minutes.
Dry Brush for Increased Lymphatic Cleansing (not included)
One of the important roles your skin plays is that of supporting detoxification. However, if the skin is saturated with dead skin cells and toxins, its ability to eliminate these wastes is reduced.
As you will be using a sauna for detox purposes, preparing the skin to be effective in its detox role by dry brushing can often increase the results you experience. In fact, dry brushing not only helps by removing dead skin cells but also aids in waste removal through the lymph nodes.
Few activities can really activate the lymphatic system in its removal of cellular waste. When the lymphatic system is not functioning properly, the cellular wastes build up in the hundreds of miles of lymphatic tubes. This lymphatic congestion causes inflammation and even sickness. As dry brushing stimulates the lymph nodes, it is a powerful detoxification protocol on its own. But adding it prior to a sauna session compounds these detoxification effects.
Brushing the skin also increases circulation, another benefit that makes it a great pre-sauna activity. Simply purchase a dry brush made with natural bristles and make long sweeping strokes on the skin towards the heart. Start at the feet and move upward, always brushing towards the heart.
Pre-Session Protocol for Optimal Benefits
A proper protocol for using a sauna for detox starts with something that is obvious. Hydrate. Drink a glass of water before beginning the sauna session. The higher the temperature will be in the sauna, the more water should be consumed before, during and after the sauna.
Showering Before and after using a Sauna
Although not necessary, some users find showering prior to using their sauna results in a faster and heavier sweat and a more invigorating experience. It can also stimulate your body’s circulation even before entering the sauna.
Benefits of Sauna after Workout
Exercise raises the body’s temperature and increasing the oxygenation of the cells. While this is true some people do not sweat as easily as others during exercise and others do not release the toxins as easily. Ironically both of these often occur as a result of a toxin overload clogging up the detox process.
The benefits of a sauna after a workout include the release of these toxins and a faster result as the body is already at a higher core temperature and primed for the release of the toxins. Less time is needed in the sauna after a workout and it is important to monitor the time and your body’s reaction.
Fiber for Mobilized Toxin Removal
Once the toxins are released and mobilized in the body, those that are not secreted in the sweat are released into the digestive system. Without proper fiber in the intestines, a portion of these toxins will be reabsorbed back into the body, being again deposited into fat cells. While eating a heavy meal prior to entering the sauna is not recommended, having fiber in the form of a smoothie, green powder, fruits or vegetables more than an hour before or after your time in the sauna use can be beneficial in aiding the removal of these toxins.
Which is the Best Detox Sauna?
When choosing a sauna for detox purposes, true infrared heaters and powerful, penetrating infrared are necessary. The Synergy Sauna™ heating panels, with their 87% spectral emissivity carbon and tourmaline heating panels have faster, deeper penetrating infrared than many saunas. As well, their panels were designed to be as close to the optimal 9.4 microns frequencies as possible. This results in the best cellular vibration, called resonance frequency, causing the cells to “shake off” more toxins than when using standard carbon panels.
A cheap sauna with weak carbon panels may heat the body but it is a poor choice as a detox sauna. Without producing the proper resonance frequency, it will not result in significant detoxification.

How does an infrared sauna work?
The idea behind infrared therapy is to heat your body directly with infrared heat. In a traditional sauna you are just sitting in a hot room, 180-220 degrees. In an infrared sauna, the infrared is heating your body directly and 20% of the heat is heating the air. The idea is to increase thermal energy in the body so you want the infrared on your front core and your back core.
The infrared heat increases thermal energy and temporarily stimulates your lymphatic system, immune system and your cardiovascular system. Your bodies response to that is to sweat profusely.
In addition to the infrared heat triggering a profuse sweat, the water in our body also resonate with far infrared heat and this also helps with the detoxification process.
With this in mind, you now understand why we stress the importance of both front and back wall heaters in an infrared sauna. If you do not have front heaters in your sauna, you will not raise your core body temperature as well and you will not receive as much of the desired effect. All of our Clearlight Infrared Sauna™ models have heaters all around you… on your front, back, sides, legs and feet.
What are the benefits of a cedar sauna?
The traditional sauna has been made predominately from close grain cedar for many obvious reasons:
1) Cedar wood is soft wood that resists the cracking and splitting caused by the heating up and cooling down in the sauna. No sauna wood lasts longer than cedarwood.
2) Cedar wood contains aromatic oils that are known for their healing and cleansing properties to aid detoxification during the sauna. Cedarwood can also help disperse excess fluids throughout the body.
3) Cedar wood is naturally anti-fungal and anti-bacterial owing to the unique properties of the cedar oil. This is especially important in the sauna where bodies, moisture and heat combine to make the environment perfect for molds and bacteria.
4) Cedar wood is one of the most beautiful woods available ranging from a very light honey to a deep walnut shade.
5) Cedar wood smells good and gives you a true experience. “Non-aromatic” cedar is used in sauna construction and the cedar scent is very subtle and satisfying to the senses.
6) Cedar wood can be easily sanded inside the sauna to remove any stains caused by perspiration and to bring back the fresh cedar smell.
7) There is a lot of misinformation about cedar wood on the internet. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) put it best in their September, 1993 report:
“EPA believes it is unnecessary to regulate these products because they pose little or no risk to human health or the environment…EPA is not aware of any evidence of injury to human health or the environment due to their use.”
Cedar is non-toxic according to the Regulatory Information for Cedar from the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) and World Health Organization(WHO). Click Here for the report.
See the following report from an independent testing lab regarding Western Red Cedar and toxicity. Click here for the report.
Please note that an extremely small percentage of the population cannot tolerate the smell of cedar wood. These people have multiple chemical sensitivities(MCS). These people cannot as a rule tolerate any aromatic oils, perfumes, shampoos or herbs. We recommend our North American Basswood Saunas for these people.
What are the benefits of a basswood sauna?
North American Basswood is a “white” wood with a yellow to whitish color. Basswood has a very dense cellular structure making it stronger, more stable and sweat resistant. It is also resistant to cracking and splitting.
Basswood is also considered hypoallergenic. It has almost no odor and is one of the only woods not considered a “sensitizer” for people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.
How long is the warranty on my Jacuzzi infrared sauna?
We take pride in being one of the few companies that provides you with a limited lifetime warranty for residential use on the entire sauna – heaters, wood, controls and electrical. Your sauna is built in a modular fashion so replacing parts is easy. We only use the highest quality materials in each Clearlight Infrared Sauna™ model to minimize the possibility of warranty issues. Very few infrared sauna companies offer this type of complete lifetime warranty.
For commercial use, we offer a complete 5 year warranty on the entire sauna.
Will I need to hire an electrician?
Standard household electrical outlets are 120 volts. Most are rated at 15 amps and some, like bathrooms or kitchens, may be rated at 20 amps.
Clearlight Infrared Sauna™ models run on either 120v or 240v depending on the sauna model and the size of the sauna. Please review the specification for the model you are interested in to see the electrical requirement or contact a Jacuzzi® Sauna specialist at 800.798.1779.
Many of our sauna models will plug into any standard household outlet. Many models require you to hire an electrician to install the proper electrical circuit.
What is the optimum infrared wavelengths of an infrared sauna?
The infrared wavelengths of a far infrared heater is determined by the surface temperature of the heater itself. The lower the surface temperature of the heater, the longer the infrared wave and the more beneficial the infrared heat will be.
Our large True Wave™ far infrared heaters run at an optimal 180-200°F surface temperature producing exceptional quality far infrared heat. This means our heaters produce the majority of the infrared heat in the vital wave range of 6 to 12 microns with a good portion of wavelengths at 9.4 microns, the optimal absorption range of far infrared by the human body.
Only our True Wave™ heaters combine the high infrared output of ceramic with long wave carbon infrared heat to produce the most effective infrared heaters available. You can only find this combination in Jacuzzi® infrared saunas!
Our True Wave™ Full Spectrum infrared heaters are powerful 500 watt heaters that produce near, mid and far infrared. Adding in full spectrum therapy to your Clearlight Sauna® will enhance the benefits if our far infrared heaters. You will get more benefit faster in a full spectrum infrared sauna.
Do you just sell your True Wave™ infrared heaters individually?
Absolutely. We have designed an infrared heater kit and control system so you can install our True Wave™ heaters in your already existing sauna or one you are building yourself. You can even install these in that small room you’ve always wanted to convert into a sauna.
The heater package consists of enough heaters for your designated space, digital keypad control and power supply, all necessary cables, cedar wood, lights and accessories. Just give us a call at 800.798.1779 x 850. We are happy to spec out a far infrared heater system that will work for your space. You can also click here for more information on our heater kits and submit your room dimensions for a quote.
Is infrared heat safe?
Infrared heat is completely safe and all objects give off and receive infrared heat. In fact, it is so safe, hospitals use similar heaters to warm newborns. Infrared is a part of nature and essential for life.
The human body gives off and receives infrared in the far infrared band. When a mother rubs a babies stomach to relieve pain, it is the infrared heat from her hand that is causing the healing effect. We have tuned our True Wave™ heaters to give off far infrared in this same range for maximum absorption by your body and for maximum therapeutic benefits.
Can I put my Jacuzzi® infrared sauna outside?
Yes, all Clearlight Infrared Sauna™ Models can be used outside with our optional water proof cover. Because we use high-pressure bindings and precision hand craftsmanship, our sauna cabinetry can endure outdoor humidity and dryness as long as you protect it with our waterproof cover.
Infrared saunas are designed to heat the human body, not the air. Only about 20% of the heat from our heaters goes to heat the air. Because of this, if you live in a place where the temperature gets below 40° F, we don’t recommend putting the sauna outside. It will take much longer for the cabin to warm up and it will not get as hot. Please consult one of our infrared sauna specialists for more information about putting your sauna outside.
How is my Jacuzzi® infrared sauna shipped?
Your new Jacuzzi® infrared sauna™ will generally arrive in your state within 7-10 days from the date it leaves our warehouse in Northern California. As part of our commitment to exceptional customer service, we ship every Clearlight Infrared Sauna model with a few higher levels of service.
First, our freight carrier will call to schedule an appointment to deliver your sauna. There is no worry that your sauna will arrive unexpectedly.
Second, your sauna will be delivered on a truck with a lift gate to ensure that any possibility of freight damage is minimized.
Third, the delivery driver will move your sauna off of the truck with a pallet jack and move it as far as they can roll it.
At this point, just open up the boxes and move the wall panels into place. Setup time for all of our Clearlight Sauna® models is about 45-90 minutes depending on the size and the model.
Installation service is available. If you need your sauna delivered into your house or up or down stairs, please just give us a call.
Can I receive constant infrared heat from my Jacuzzi® sauna?
Yes. The ideal way to use any infrared sauna is to have the infrared heaters on the entire time producing the optimal infrared heat you desire.
Infrared heat is most effective at lower temperatures as sweat oils secrete at lower temperatures and this sweat is different than water sweat. Your Clearlight Infrared Sauna™ is designed to heat your body more so than to heat the cabin (about 80% of the heat heats your body and 20% of the heat heats the sauna cabin). The following is our recommendation for use of your sauna:
1) Turn your sauna on and warm it up for about 10-15 minutes. The True Wave™ heaters in your sauna will reach their optimal operating temperature in this amount of time.
2) After this short warm up time, get in the sauna and turn the thermostat up very high to ensure the heaters stay on continuously during your session. Generally, your infrared sauna session will range in temperature between 100 – 125°F.
3) Sit back and enjoy your sauna session. Since the key to infrared therapy is heating your body core, you will find that you sweat more sitting up in the sauna with your back lined up with the back wall heaters heating your body core from the back. This positions you in such a way that the front wall heaters will be heating your front body core.
4) During your session the temperature will slowly climb inside the sauna cabin. Remember, your Clearlight Infrared Sauna is heating your body more so than heating the air.
5) Stay Well Hydrated. We emphasize this because it is essential to stay well hydrated when using your sauna. It is estimated that 70% of people are dehydrated. When you are dehydrated, your body holds on to water and will not allow you to sweat very much. It is recommended to drink water before you get in the sauna and bring a quart of water into the sauna with you and drink it during your session.
Don’t be fooled by other manufacturers that offer constant infrared heat by reducing the output of their heaters. At the reduced output you are not receiving optimal infrared heat.
How do I maintain my Jacuzzi® infrared sauna?
Jacuzzi® infrared saunas require very little cleaning, and there are no regular maintenance tasks or parts to replace. Infrared saunas provide dry heat; the only moisture produced is from your own perspiration. The enclosed cabins keep out dust and dirt. The ceramic compound in our True Wave heaters naturally produces a lot of negative ions that help purify the air. Treat the exterior like any piece of fine furniture. You can wipe the interior down with a sauna cleaner that we offer one or you can make your own.
• Use towels on the bench and underneath your feet.
• If you notice excess moisture after a session, you can wipe off any excess perspiration or crack the door or roof vent and keep the sauna running for a few minutes.
• If needed, you can wipe your sauna down occasionally. Use a moist towel – don’t spray directly onto the heater panels. Use our sauna cleaner or make your own: A few drops of a high quality essential oil in water (examples are Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Arborvitae, Lavender, Lemon – your choice); a solution of 1T baking soda in a gallon of water. For Basswood models, you can use a weak solution of hydrogen peroxide or Tea Tree oil in water.
• For locations with high use such as clinics and spas, we offer a No VOC varnish to use inside the sauna and waterproof bench pads.
• Use your vaccum hand attachment if you want to clean dust or debris from your sauna.
• Perspiration stains don’t affect your sauna’s performance. If you eventually get perspiration stains that you would like to remove it’s easily done by lightly sanding.
