Far-Infrared Therapy



Far-Infrared Therapy

Far infrared light is in the frequency of invisible light that is generated naturally by the sun. Far Infrared rays cannot be perceived by our eyes but can be felt as a gentle radiant heat. FIR Saunas differ from conventional saunas in that the heat from a FIR Sauna penetrates much deeper (about 1.5 - 2 inches deep) and causes more sweat to be released. Heating of the skin with FIR Saunas is much faster (in comparison with the conventional saunas).


Health Benefits

Detoxification

Sweating is one of the most important excretory processes through which our body gets rid of toxins. With FIR Therapy, since the heat penetrates much deeper, it causes the fat cells and water molecules to vibrate and release stored toxins which then gets eliminated through sweat.


Cardiovascular Health

FIR Sauna therapy has been shown to improve cardiac and vascular function by up-regulating Nitric Oxide (NO) synthesis. NO causes the arteries which have become stiff to relax and improves circulation. FIR has been shown to reduce inflammation by inhibiting IL-6 and TNF-α (pro-inflammatory cytokines). FIR has also been shown to reduce oxidative stress in patients with chronic heart failure.


Other health benefits

  1. The gentle heat produced in Far Infrared heat therapy exerts an analgesic effect and can help reduce or eliminate chronic pains. 
  2. Stiffness in the joints from arthritis can be significantly relieved. Studies show that far infrared heat makes connective tissue more flexible, permits greater joint movement and brings about increased levels of endorphins, which ease pain.
  3. Far Infrared therapy also causes blood vessels to expand. This expansion leads to improved circulation and allows the immune system cells and chemicals to converge on the injured areas to facilitate the healing process.
  4. Improves lymphatic flow.
  5. Reducing tension and stress.


Safety

FIR Therapy is extremely safe. Infrared waves are produced by our own body and by everyone else surrounding us which is how Thermal cameras are able to detect temperatures.
