Far Infrared is as essential to life as food, air and water. It is a range of the electromagnetic spectrum of waves emitted by the sun. We can not see it, but we can feel it.
How The Body Takes In Far Infrared
People absorb and emit far infrared. The level of far infrared produced by each individual mirrors their general health. As they become sick their radiation goes down, and increases again as they get well.
Below is a diagram which shows the wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. A micrometer or micron is equal to one millionth of a meter. The far infrared spectrum is between 5.6 to 1000 microns. The wavelengths most helpful to the human being is between 8 and 14 microns.
How can Far Infrared Help Me?
Far Infrared Therapy is one of the best methods of whole body therapy for lowering blood pressure, pain relief, increasing energy, increasing circulation, and toxin detoxification and elimination.
Far Infrared Heat penetrates deep into the body and helps expand and dilate peripheral blood vessels. This helps bring relief to muscles and soft tissue injuries through increased circulation and accelerated production of compounds the body makes to heal. The increased blood circulation delivers oxygen-rich blood to injured muscles, helping speed up the body's natural recovery process. Users report that FIR therapy (especially a sauna) lowers blood pressure.
Sweating purges clogged pores of deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells leaving you with glowing skin. An increase in blood circulation encourages a healthy flow of nutrients to your skin that helps relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, and burns. It will also encourage the healing of lesions and minor cuts.
Burns Calories and Controls Weight
One session in any good FarInfrared Sauna will burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes. Through deep penetration of fat cells, radiant heat therapy will help clear away cellulite.
The process of perspiration is nature's way of detoxifying your body of waste materials accumulated in your daily life. Far Infrared, saunas in particular, can help you sweat out these toxins without discomfort.
Strengthens the Cardiovascular System
As you use Far Infrared saunas, 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 Far Infrared will relax and loosen your tight, sore muscles. Radiant heat therapy also relieves the stiffness, aches and soreness associated with aging.

Far infrared causes water within the body to vibrate. The body is about 70% water, so this has a profound effect on our tissues. This process allows for deeper penetration of energy, which both heats the atoms and causes water molecules to break into smaller clusters. Both events stimulate the easy release of toxins. The extra heat generated causes the capillaries to expand which helps blood circulation and increases the body's metabolism. This activates the tissues to produce needed enzymes.
