After the U.S. patent was granted on July 3, Creatrix Solutions recently unveiled its Sauna Fix, a near-infrared (NIR) sauna tent for the general and specialized yoga practitioner as well as the at-home sauna enthusiast. The Sauna Fix adds NIR to typical exercise routines.
“We see a lot of great products … and we were able to sample the Sauna Fix … and we thought ‘how awesome would it be to create a full-size tent, where you could do full yoga practice?’ So we talked to Eileen and she created it. It’s awesome,” said Cofounder and Chief Editor Jenn Bodnar of Yoga Digest.
Hot Yoga has exploded in popularity. Hot Yoga can use other forms of heat, but when NIR is combined with Yoga in a NIR sauna tent like the Sauna Fix, Bodnar and her team believe additional benefits are achieved in a shorter amount of time.
Sauna Fix is portable and available in multiple styles. NIR saunas provide the best heat-stress of all sauna types and are generally regarded as the best choice for both detoxification and weight loss benefits. In addition, NIR saunas offer more beneficial light energy aspects as opposed to traditional, steam or far-infrared sauna options.
There are also a host of safety issues related to the sauna and sauna-tent industry, especially DIY sauna tents. Without the necessary expertise, Creatix Solutions said yoga and exercise enthusiasts put themselves at risk by using untested materials, techniques or equipment.
Traditional tents use wooden frames and cotton canvas as part of their construction. Creatix Solutions said chemicals are known to live in GMO cotton canvases and nearly all canvas sold in the U.S. is made with non-organic cotton, using pesticides, herbicides and defoliants. These contaminates remain in the cloth despite water scouring. Canvas also wastes energy, requiring lengthy preheating and is difficult to clean. Sauna Fix uses thick, double layers of non-toxic radiant material wrapped around 6 millimeters thick bubble wrap.
