What is Far Infrared Ray (FIR)?
Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat is a completely safe form of naturally occurring enerqy that
heats objects, by a process called direct light conversion. Radiant heat is also called Infrared
heat or infrared energy. Direct light conversion warms only the object and does not raise the
temperature of the surrounding free area. This type of energy travels 2-3" deep into the body and
is thought by some to increase circulation and nourish damaged tissue.
FIR heat is not ultraviolet radiation but a narrow band of energy within the 5 to 15 micron
level. The infrared segment of the electromagnetic spectrum occurs just below the (infra) to red
light as the next lowest energy band of light. This band of light is not visible to human eyes but
can be seen by special cameras. We can however feel this type of light that we perceive as heat.
Our sun produces most of this energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Our atmosphere
has a window in it that allows 14 micron band with its peak output at 10 microns.
The sun is the primary source of radiant energy, but not all of this energy is beneficial.
Although life needs energy from the sun, too much sunlight damages skin. FIR heat provides many of
the health benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar
Why Is FIR important to the human body?
FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR
because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through skin to the subcutaneous
tissues, it 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 beeter blood
circulation, and the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through
What are the health benefits of spending time in a sauna?
The health benefits of a FAR Infrared Sauna are numerous. Saunas are often used in the treatment
of diseases and drug addictions as well as for general therapy and well being. Some of the benefits
- Better Circulation and Increased Energy - The sauna 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.
- Weight Loss - FIR Sauna heat therapy can aid in weight loss by
speeding up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in substancial
caloric loss in a sauna heat session.
- Cardiovascular Health - The FIR Sauna increases heart rate and blood
circulation, crucial to maintaining one's health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow
is diverted to the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin, without
heightening blood pressure.
- Speedy Recovery from Injuries - For injuries, FIR generates heat and
stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and
extremities, speeding the healing of sprains and strains, thus relieving pain and reducing the
time it takes the human body to recover from an injury.
- Detoxification - The quicker metabolic rate causes extra toxic waste
products to be purged from the body through the skin, during perspiration. The skin is often
referred to as the 3rd kidney, because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating 30% of
the body's waste.
- Stress Reduction & Relaxation - FIR Sauna heat treatment, before
a massage, also helps prepare a client by creating an overall relaxing effect. It loosens the
muscle tissue so the therapist can do a more thorough and effective massage.
- Skin Beautification - For that sought after healthy glow, FIR Sauna
heat therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the
skin, thus promoting healthy tone and texture. A FIR Sauna heat bath also provides a mild
cleansing of the skin.
- Improved Immune System - By creating an "Artificial Fever", FIR heat
has a positive effect on the immune system. Often misunderstood, fever is a natural healing
response of the body. The function of the immune system is increased naturally during a fever
while virus and bacterial growth is slowed, weakening its hold. This helps the body ward off
invading organisms. A FIR heat treatment in the early stages of a cold or flu has been shown to
stop the disease before the symptoms occur.
A highly effective weight control, inch loss, pain management, cellular detoxification, and
physical therapy system that is fast, easy and effective.
