The Smarty Far-infrared Sauna System.



is easy as










We are fortunate to enjoy a life that has become increasingly convenient and comfortable. However, that comfort comes with a price, as we are exposed to toxic materials accumulated through food, water, air, etc. These materials are damaging our health. These obstacles to a healthy lifestyle have been called the "syndrome of chemical substances" and there is no complete solution to this problem. But fortunately, our body's cleansing system is able to expel these wastes from our body, and with Smarty we can greatly enhance the effectiveness of this process.

The sweat your body expels during a Smarty treatment is very different than the sweat you might expel doing other activities. For example, taking a normal bath, bathing in a sauna or doing exercise typically causes sweat to be released from the sweat glands. This can help stimulate your body's metabolism and relieve stress. However, the Smarty goes far beyond those benefits. The Smarty helps expel the stickier, dirtier sweat from sebaceous glands, which is excreted during a marathon, for example. Of course not everybody can run a marathon. But with Smarty's far infrared radiation, everybody can achieve the same results, easily and comfortably, by lying in this sweating and energizing equipment for just 30 minutes a day.

The Smarty is a piece of health-care equipment, but requires neither strenuous exercise nor tiring activity. You just lie inside and can feel the comforting warmth that soothes your body. Sticky sweat is gradually oozed from your whole body and really pours out towards the end of the treatment. Your body is purified and your mind and body are fresh.


 Detoxify The Body


You haven't sweated,
until you've sweated
in the Smarty!

Smarty Therapy begins with 10-15 minutes of soothing warmth, and then the fun starts! You begin sweating after 10-15 minutes and then the sweat just
pours out, cleansing your body and removing unhealthy materials from the
Sebaceous glands of your body. In 30 minutes you've excreted as much as a liter of sweat.

Protection from environmental pollution!
Our lives have become very convenient. But on the other hand, there are modern diseases caused by harmful substances in the environment. They are absorbed into our body through foods containing additives, antiseptics,
agricultural chemicals, etc. These substances induce many different types of diseases. The United States Food and Drug Administration has analyzed this syndrome of unhealthiness caused by chemicals in our world. The FDA has found that sweating is one of the most effective ways to expel these chemical substances from our body.

Sweat excreted from sebaceous glands
We can call sweat "the body's cleanser" because it plays a very important role in expelling wastes from our body. However, toxic substances such as dioxin, lead and other heavy metals do not melt in water but dissolve in the fat in our body. Therefore, those toxic substances and cholesterol are not excreted with the sweat provoked by a normal sauna or hot bath. Normal sweat comes out through sweat glands, and toxic substances are ejected only through the sebaceous glands. Therefore, it is necessary to sweat through sebaceous glands and this is possible with black carbon far infrared radiation.

Dioxin detected in Smarty-sweat!
It was proved by the latest analyzing technique that 1 mg (10 cc) Smarty-sweat contained up to 0.47 pico gram* dioxin. About 1000 cc sweat is excreted by bathing in Smarty for 30-40 minutes, and it is possible to excrete up to 470 pico gram dioxin. The WHO defines the permitted daily intake of dioxin at 1-4 pico gram per 1kg body weight. In the case of a person weighing 60 kg it is 60-240 pico gram a day. Using Smarty for just 30-40 minutes a day enables us to eject this amount of dioxin or even more. (19 Feb. 1999 by Shimazu Techno Research: PCDDS+PCDFS=0,47pg./ml).

*Unit of pico gram
1 milli gram..........1/1000 gram
1 micro gram……. 1/1,000,000 gram
1 nano gram………1/1,000,000,000 gram
1 pico gram………..1/1,000,000,000,000 gram
1 pico gram is the density of one drop of eye lotion dropped into a 50-meter
long swimming pool.

Dioxin is such a dangerous toxic chemical substance that only one gram can kill 10,000 people or more.


The reasons why Smarty is an ideal sweating system for humans:

  1. The pressure on your spine is 2 times as high as the body weight if you are sitting, but is only 1/2 as much if you are lying. Therefore, a lying position in Smarty allows your muscles to loosen and your whole body to relax.

  2. Blood circulates better.

  3. The strain on the heart is very small.

  4. The capillaries are expanded.

  5. Enough oxygen can be supplied thanks to a lying position.

  6. Far infrared rays, which have the most suitable wavelength for our organism; and are essential for all living things are focused and radiated on our whole body.

  7. Longer use is possible, as you have neither pains nor other sufferings even after you begin to sweat. You can safely continue sweating for quite a long time.



Today more than 77,000 chemicals are in active production in this country. Our exposure to these chemicals is greater than at any time since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. More than 3,000 chemicals are added to our food supply. more than 10,000 chemicals in the form of solvents, emulsifiers and preservatives are used in food processing and storage. When ingested these chemicals can remain in the body for years, altering our metabolism, causing enzyme dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies, creating hormonal imbalances and lowering our threshold of resistance to chronic disease. We are continually subjected to poor air quality, chemically contaminated food and water, household cleansers, paint fumes, pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, heavy metals (including mercury) and the list goes on and on. Today, studies show that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies. These chemicals and heavy metals make up the "total toxic burden." When our bodies exceed the limit that we can excrete, we begin to store these toxins. This bioaccumulation seriously compromises our physiological and psychological health and leads to chronic disease.


The following symptoms are often related to toxicity: allergies, acne, anxiety, burning skin, brain fog, chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, depression, eczema, frequent colds or flu, feeling "sick all over," insomnia, loss of dexterity, low body temperature, memory loss, mood swings, muscle and joint pains and poor concentration.


The Smarty far infrared sauna is recognized by health practitioners worldwide as perhaps the most effective method of removing both chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body. The combination of "resonant absorption," and low heat makes this the detox method of choice for chronically ill patients as well as those that are well and wish to stay that way by reducing their "toxic burden."

"A sauna used to be thought as a luxury. But studies now confirm that diet and environmental chemicals cause 95% of cancers. Furthermore, as the first generation of man exposed to such an unprecedented plethora of daily chemicals we have learned that stored or undetoxified chemicals can mimic any disease.  'Incurable' chronic diseases that were thought to have no known cause often disappear once toxic chemicals are gone. Since the poplar far infrared sauna is the safest, most efficacious and economical way of depurating stored toxins, this makes it a household necessity."

SMARTY Technology


The Power of
Carbon Black

By using the Smarty, sweat can be expelled from the depth of our body.
The secret is in its shell-shaped carbon black heaters. The miracle power of carbon black has been well known for many years. Carbon black contains the same organic material as our human body. So it can deeply resonate with cells of human bodies and warm us from the inside. You can also enjoy bathing in Smarty with clothes and without sweating.

The remarkable thermal effects thermographs show how completely the Smarty warms the core of the body, compared to other sauna-type devices.

A. Normal body temperature distribution before a Smarty treatment.

B. Body temperature distribution after a Smarty treatment. The whole
body is evenly warmed.

C. Body temperature distribution after using a sitting type sauna box or
similar thermal equipment. The distribution shows that some parts of the
body are not warmed well enough, especially the tips of hands and feet.

There is no outside pressure exerted on the body, which makes the Smarty safe for older people. At the periphery of our circulatory system are very fine capillaries that are less than .5 microns in diameter. Bathing in a hot spring or normal bath is not always safe for people who have high blood pressure,
problems with respiratory organs or the brain because fine capillaries may be compressed due to pressure from the water on the outside of the body. There is only air in the Smarty's domes, so the pressure on the body is minimal. The strain on the heart is also very small when you are lying down, compared to when you are sitting or standing. Because the Smarty's main position for use is lying down, the body and mind are completely relaxed. Furthermore, far infrared rays from Smarty can stimulate 48 pressure points that are gathered on the soles of the feet.

A fundamental principle for health - "cool head and warm legs and body" - is part of the Smarty secret. When using the Smarty, your face is outside and therefore you can, in contrast to a normal sauna, breathe plenty of fresh air while you enjoy your Smarty treatment. The following text describes the perfect sauna, according to a leading medical magazine: "A sauna box that allows one's head to protrude would be most advantageous. While sleeping, man breaches nine liters fresh air containing 21% oxygen each minute. In a sitting position, 27 liters are required. During physical exercise, 90 liters per minute are required.

A sauna has about the same effect as physical exercise, i.e., 90 liters per minute are required. Thus, 30 minutes in the sauna requires 2,700 liters of fresh air. Even a large box-type sauna for a single person measures only 90 cm wide, 90 cm deep and 180cm high, and thus has a volume of not more than 1,500 liters. If the door were closed tightly, you would have to breathe your own exhalation. The oxygen concentration in air exhaled by man falls all the way to 16%, which is not even sufficient to burn a match. Improvement of blood circulation in a sauna is supposed to invigorate the body through a sufficient oxygen supply. This box-type sauna, however, creates a form of oxygen deficiency. That is why the head should be able to protrude from the sauna to breathe fresh air. Installation of a ventilation window is another possibility, but the inflow of cold air during the winter may markedly inhibit perspiration. Recently, a sauna with an oxygen supply has been marketed. In a sauna where you can stick out your head, you don't have to worry about dizziness, headaches, or a mussed-up hair. However, irradiation of the head with FIR can make the face skin beautiful and can also promote hair growth. Accordingly, a sauna that completely irradiates head and face would be ideal if you could stick out your head after a certain period of irradiation of head." This describes the Smarty…perfectly!


NASA has discovered that electromagnetic rays are absolutely necessary for the metabolism and growth of human beings. Among these infrared rays, rays with a wavelength between 3-1000 microns are called "far infrared rays". Human beings have been using such rays, without knowing of their existence, since time began. These invisible rays are a blessing from the sun. They penetrate deeply into our body and create heat. These effective electromagnetic rays are indispensable for our growth. It has been proven that far infrared rays with a wavelength between 8-14 microns are mildly absorbed into our body and have a positive influence on our body too. These waves are called "growing light rays."

The Smarty uses patented black carbon heater to radiate far infrared rays mildly and effectively onto the body. Carbon black is made from charcoal. Most far infrared heaters use inorganic materials such as ceramic. However, our body is made up of organic substances and a heater made of organic material is much more suitable for the human body.

When electromagnetic rays meet the waves emitted from our cells, they resonate with each other and as a result, warm our body from the depth. Therefore, a heater should radiate waves whose length is nearer to that of waves we emit.

The effects of far infrared rays weaken with distance. So the closer to the source of the rays your body is, the more impact far infrared rays will have. The dome design of the Smarty puts your body as close as possible to the source of the rays. In addition the Smarty includes a safety system, which prevents low temperature scalding from the rays. The Smarty emits far infrared rays with a wavelength between 5-20 microns that meet the wavelength radiated from our body. These essential rays work mildly but effectively on our body and charge positive energy without causing any strain. Measuring far infrared rays so they match the rays your body emits. A wavelength of infrared can be calculated by Wien's radiation-law after the measurement of absolute surface temperature of the heating materials.

Wien's radiation-law states that:

Wavelength = 2897 (Wien's constant)
(micron) Temperature of surface (degree C) + 273

So if we look at the rays emitted by the human body…
1) of human body 2897 = about 9,4 micron Temp. of a human body 36,5+273 36,5 degrees C. in average

And we compare them to the rays emitted by the Smarty…
2) of Fujika Smarty 2897 = 8,7 micron Temp. on the surface of a heater 60+273 about 60 degrees C

We note that the Smarty closely matches the infrared emissions from the human body. Plus it is noted that the temperature on the surface of the Smarty remains at 60 degrees C.

This is different from other types of far infrared treatment systems, which emits rays which do not match the body's emissions, and create intense heat on the surface of the heating unit.

3) of a bar shape heater 2897 = 4,3 micron Temp. on the surface of a heater 400+273 about 400 degrees C

Focused radiation in shell-shaped domes. Furthermore, Smarty's unique domes are designed to cover the whole body and to heighten the effect of the shell-shaped heaters by focusing them toward the body. This design increases the density of radiation and makes it possible to radiate far infrared rays toward the center of our body. The reflection mat also improves the efficiency of the radiation.


Perspiration purges clogged pores of deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells leaving you with glowing radiant skin. An increase in blood circulation encourages a healthy flow of nutrients to your skin that in turn helps to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, and burns. It will also encourage the healing of lesions and minor cuts.

Excellent for increasing blood circulation to the skin, which is essential for beautiful, youthful, glowing skin.

A new "inner glow" as the skin is free of accumulated dirt and dry skin cells, due to deep cleansing of impurities.

Improves the conditions of acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions and cuts.

Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring.

Removes roughness, leaving skin baby smooth and soft again.

Firms and improves skin tone and elasticity.

Scars fully formed, even keloids, may be gradually softened.

Burns and other wounds or incisions may heal with significantly reduced scarring.

Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes, which are trapped in pockets below the skin. The Smarty can assist this condition, as profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body.

European beauty specialists confirm that a sauna will greatly speed any anti-cellulite program.

Due to at least twice the depth of heat penetration into cellulite combined with up to 10 times the level of heating in these tissues, the Smarty can be significantly more effective than any conventional sauna.

Removes Toxins
The process of perspiration is nature's way of detoxifying your body of waste materials accumulated in your daily life. The Smarty stimulates this natural process at comfortable, low temperatures. Through deep penetration of fat cells, radiant heat therapy will help clear away cellulite.

Relieves Pain
Radiant heat expands and dilates peripheral blood vessels. This action brings relief to muscles and soft tissue injuries. In addition, increased blood circulation delivers oxygen-rich blood to injured muscles which helps to speed up the body's natural recovery process. Effective in helping reduce the pain of arthritis, back pain, muscle spasms, headache, etc.

Strengthens the Cardiovascular System
As you use the Smarty, your heart pumps blood at a greater rate, giving you the same benefits as a cardiovascular workout. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, resulting in improved physical fitness.

Reduces Stress and Fatigue
The soothing warmth of the Smarty will relax and loosen your tight, sore muscles. Radiant heat therapy also relieves the stiffness, aches and soreness associated with aging. It is better than having a personal masseuse.

Relax with Comfort
The first horizontal unit of its kind, you can comfortably lie down in the Smarty while enjoying the benefits of radiant heat therapy.

Between 70F and 150F. This temperature range will not hamper your breathing or cause you physical discomfort, and the penetrating warmth of the Smarty generates healthy perspiration at comfortable, low temperatures.

Radiant heat helps with sprains, strains, arthritis, muscle spasms and pain.

If you are an athlete, an Smarty is all good news. It allows oxygen debt to be repaid more quickly. This is likely to lead to improved and quicker healing of sprains and muscle pain for you.

Skin conditions Benefited
by infrared treatments in
Japan and China:

Nettle rash

Clogged pores are unplugged of cosmetics creating a skin texture and tone of unexcelled quality. Mikkel Aaland's book Sweat (Capra Press, 1978) quotes a Finnish doctor to the effect that: "The best dressed foreigner can come into a doctor's office, and when his skin is examined, it is found to be rough as bark. On the other hand, as a result of the sauna, the skin of any Finnish worker is supple and healthy"

Poor skin tone is restored to a more youthful level

Scars and pain from burns or wounds are decreased in severity and extent. Infrared therapy is used routinely in burn units throughout Asia

Lacerations heal quicker and with less pain and scarring

Acne: Three or four infrared treatments may open pores that have not been functioning in years, forcing out clogging cosmetics and loosening dead outer skin. The sauna is thus a boon to teenage skin, clearing acne and blackheads

Body odor: by improving the function of the skin, the infrared treatments may eliminate the cause of offensive body odor. It definitely reduces body odor induced by occupational exposure to odorous chemicals

Eczema and Psoriasis: reported to have responded extremely well to infrared treatments

Sunburn: according to the 9th edition of Clayton's

Electrotherapy, "infrared is the only antidote to excessive ultraviolet radiation."

Keloids forms at a reduced rate in those prone to their formation with infrared treatments and may be softened by use of infrared systems if they have formed.


FIR is a form of electromagnetic light energy from the sun. It falls within the same family of the Infrared Ray in the light spectrum, but due to its longer wavelengths, FIR cannot be seen by human eyes, just like ultraviolet rays and X-ray. This energy is absolutely essential for all living things, including human beings, in the world.

FIR, by it physical properties, has a deep penetrating power. It can penetrate through the skin into the subcutaneous tissues thereby improve blood circulation, promote overall metabolism, get rid of bodily toxins and metabolic by-products from the body and improve cellular vitality. Upon penetrating the skin, FIR transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes blood vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation.

A global pollution nowadays diminishes the opportunities for human bodies to absorb FIR from the sun, as our ancestor did. It is because the FIR from the sun are blocked by fog, smog, polluted air and highrise buildings, and also affected by electronic pollution, the EMF (Electro Magnetic Frequency), emitted by hi-tech products such as microwave ovens, cellular phones, computers, fax machines and other electrical appliances etc. The inadequacy of FIR absorption causes many diseases including, but not limited to, headaches, migraine, contusions, muscular pain, nervousness, depression, fatique, stomach ulcers, gastric troubles, constipation, high and low blood pressure, poor circulation, chronic bronchitis, asthma, insomnia, and etc... By using natural FIR products, the appropriate level of FIR within the body can be replenished and thereby effectively improve cellular activities and eventually, the bodily health conditions.

FIR infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight minus the skin damaging UV, which is why NASA spacecraft have utilized this heat. In Asia and Europe it has already revolutionized health and beauty products.

Far Infrared ray is a form of light energy from the sun. It falls within the same family of Infrared Ray in the light spectrum. But due to its longer wavelengths, FIR cannot be seen by human eyes, just like the Ultraviolet Rays. The energy is absolutely ESSENTIAL & BENEFICIAL for human beings and all living things in the world.

FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate & reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through the skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy in to heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating

The advantage of the FIR sauna over a conventional sauna. A conventional sauna heats the air in the chamber to a very high temperature, which in turn heats our body. A FIR sauna works differently. Neither oxygen molecules nor nitrogen molecules in the air can block the FIR wave; therefore, the FIR unique wave length penetrates directly onto our body a couple of inches. It makes us feel quite warm and we perspire profusely, but our 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.

If there was a way to increase bodily energy, loose weight , decrease stress, detoxify the body and purify the skin while elevating the immune system to fight off everything from the common cold , circulatory, asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory conditions to serious life quality threatening illnesses, what would it be worth?

What if all a person had to do to receive such benefits was relax, and sit down for 15 to 30 minutes a day three or four times a week listening to music or watching TV. or talking on the phone --- now what would it be worth?

Hundreds, of years ago, people discovered and turned to heat therapy as a source of Natural Healing for many illnesses and discomforts. FIR Portable Sauna heat is simply and naturally rising to the top of health regime requirements.

Activated by heat, the FIR material emits FIR energy that is absorbed by human cells, causing a physical phenomenon called " RESONANCE". Thus the cellular activities are instantly invigorated, resulting in a better blood circulation and an overall improved metabolism.

FIR Sauna heat therapy can aid in weight loss by speeding metabolic processes of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting a substantial caloric loss in a Sauna heat session.
It also increase heart rate and blood circulation, both crucial to maintaining one's health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin without heightening blood pressure.

In a case of injury, heat stimulates vassadilation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, relaxation of stiff muscles, speeding the healing of sprains and strains. The increased blood flow helps aching and injured muscles recover faster because the stronger blood flow, the quicker metabolic and toxic waste production purged from the body, through the skin during perspiration. The skin known in Chinese medicine as the third kidney, because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating up to 30% of body waste.

FIR Sauna Heat Therapy allows increase blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone, texture and miild cleansing of the skin.


Infrared light lies between the visible and microwave portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Infrared light has a range of wavelengths, just like visible light has wavelengths that range from red light to violet. "Near infrared" light is closest in wavelength to visible light and "far infrared" is closer to the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The longer, far infrared wavelengths are about the size of a pin head and the shorter, near infrared ones are the size of cells, or are microscopic.

Far infrared waves are thermal. In other words, we experience this type of infrared radiation every day in the form of heat! The heat that we feel from sunlight, a fire, a radiator or a warm sidewalk is infrared. The temperature-sensitive nerve endings in our skin can detect the difference between inside body temperature and outside skin temperature.

Infrared light is even used to heat food sometimes - special lamps that emit thermal infrared waves are often used in fast food restaurants!

Shorter, near infrared waves are not hot at all - in fact you cannot even feel them. These shorter wavelengths are the ones used by your TV's remote control.

I have to state categorically that the Smarty Sauna is the best, trouble free, easy to operate unit I have ever purchased. I have used this ingenious simple device on many patients to treat Fibromyalgia, detoxify metal toxicity, Lyme disease, CFS, obesity, cancers and a host of other diseases with very good success.

Further, I would like to state that I have used this Smarty along with chemotherapy and radiation to treat patients to induce mild to moderate whole body hyperthermia. I did examine many difficult devices for this purpose for years. Most of them are bulky, difficult to operate and expensive. This is the best unit available for whole body hyperthermia.

Thanks again for introducing this wonderful, versatile, affordable hyperthermia device. It is a must for every alternative and traditional therapy medical specialist.

Dr. T.R. Shantha, MD, Ph.D

"The Smarty works great! I usually get several colds in the winter months, but since using the Smarty, this winter I didn't get a single cold!"

Mr. A. Duke, Midland, Texas

"I purchased the Smarty to rid my body of dangerous toxins and metals, which I am plagued with and have been for many years. I am so pleased at how well the Smarty rids my body of these toxins, I feel wonderful! The bad thing I sthat I have to fight my husband for it every time I want to use it; he loves it as a personal sauna."

Ms. J. Trimble, Charleston, South Carolina

"I purchased the Smarty to help reduce the pain in my hips, after implant surgery. I also use it every day to detox my body since I am around paint an dwelding fumes every day. I have had no discomfort in my hips since I started using the Smarty, the warmth really feels great! I have also improved my circulation; in fact I had calluses forming on my feet due to poor circulation. The calluses are now gone and my feet are smooth again. I feel very deprived if I can't get in my Smarty every day."

Mr. D. Wilson, Mount Shasta, California

"I am losing weight and feeling great, it has really improved my circulation."

C.W. Machacek, Buffalo Grove, Illinois

"I have been using hyperthermia for treating various illnesses for several years. The Smarty is agreat additiona to the treatments and speeds the recovery time for most patients."

Dr. Shantha, Atlanta, Georgia

"For many years I have been plagued with serious allergy problems. I tried everything, but nothing seemed to help. Then I purchased the Smarty and within three days my allergy symptoms were reduced. I feel great now and I attribute this to the Smarty. I also especially like the Smarty in the winter months because if I feel chilled or cold, I jump in the Smarty and I feel wonderful the rest of the day. I have great health now, thanks to the Smarty."

Ms. I. Wilson, Dunsmuir, California
