Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these far infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. The experience of a far infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. The far infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Unlike sunbathing, Infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in a far infrared sauna and it will never cause your skin to burn.

Far infrared saunas increase the body’s core Temperature, resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are stored. Conventional hot rock/steam heat saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes the air difficult to breath. On the contrary, far infrared heat is dry, soothing and extremely comfortable and relaxing.

Why Doctors Recommend Far Infrared Therapy

Far infrared waves provide concentrated radiant energy, similar to that from the sun. When any tissue in the body is exposed to far infrared waves, whether radiated by sunlight,or reflected by specially coated fabrics or panels, there is a rapid increase in warmth which can be shown by thermography. This heat plus the activation of several other response mechanisms stimulates the healing processes.

For example, far infrared waves:

1. Increase blood fl ow by promoting dilation (expansion) of the micro-circulatory system of capillaries.
2. Reduce muscle spasms as muscle fibers are heated.
3. Remove toxins from the site receiving far infrared waves.
4. Assist in the reduction of swelling and inflammation by improving lymph fl ow.
5. Reduce soreness through direct action on both free nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves.

The supposed benefits of using an infrared sauna are similar to those experienced with a traditional sauna. These include:

  • better sleep
  • relaxation
  • detoxification
  • weight loss
  • relief from sore muscles
  • relief from joint pain such as arthritis
  • clear and tighter skin
  • improved circulation
  • help for people with chronic fatigue syndrom


Safety of Far Infrared Therapy

You can be exposed to far infrared heat for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. Far infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, far infrared heat is so safe it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
