Benefits of Infrared Heat Therapy

What is Infrared?

 

 

Far infrared is a form of light that penetrates an 1.5” into the body inducing 2-3 times more perspiration than conventional saunas, expelling toxins and heavy metals and  relieving pain while the surrounding  air stays at a comfortable temperature.

 

Far infrared saunas have been very effective in lowering one's toxic load of chemicals and heavy  metals. They have also been very effective for relieving pain of arthritis, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions.

 

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, it  is so safe that it is used in the hospitals to warm newborn infants.

 

 

 

Burn up to 600 Calories in a 30 Minute Session

 

As the body works to cool itself, there is substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Blood flow during whole body hyperthermia is reported to rise from a normal 5 to 7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. A moderately  conditioned person can easily sweat off 550 grams of sweat in a sauna- the equivalent of running three to four miles or 475 to 600 calories. While the weight of the water lost can be regained by re-hydration with water, the calories will not be.

 

Heat Therapy for Pain Relief

 

The deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle & soft tissue    injuries.  Radiant heat is a form of energy that heats objects directly, without heating the air in between.  In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. In addition, infrared therapy in Japan has been effective for relief of pain associated with backache, bursitis, fibromyalgia, headache sprains, strains and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Much of the stiffness and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated in the infrared saunas.

 

Anti-Aging Factor

 

The profuse sweating achieved by infrared sauna therapy carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Skin tone and elasticity are improved. Infrared sauna therapy has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, and also reduces the appearance of scarring. Infrared stimulates the production of cell  tissue and rapidly  promotes the regeneration of skin and blood tissue in areas  exposed to its healing rays. It speeds  cellular metabolic rates by stimulating the  activity of mitochondria, and triggering enzyme activity.

When the circulatory system is improved under the influence of FIR, it will naturally improve our metabolism.  The elevation of metabolism improves energy levels and the immunity of our  bodies against diseases. This is part of the effects of the improvement in the micro-circulatory system and metabolism of the body. It helps to slow down the ageing process, increase  resistance against diseases and increases longevity. 

 

 

 

Improves Skin

 

Sweating achieved by infrared sauna therapy carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Skin tone and elasticity are improved. Infrared sauna therapy has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, and also reduces the appearance of scarring.

Reduce Cellulite

 

Infrared sauna therapy can help clear cellulite, the gel like lumps of fat, water, and debris trapped in pockets beneath the skin, by increasing blood flow and removing stored toxins. European beauty specialists routinely incorporate daily  saunas in programs to reduce cellulite.

 

Athletic Performance

 

Athletes are using the infrared sauna to warm their muscles before and after working out, to prevent injuries and also to promote relaxation. Following a work out or sporting activity, the infrared sauna helps reduce muscle tension as well as eliminate lactic acid and other  metabolic waste products. Increased blood circulation delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen depleted muscles so they can recover faster. Many athletes find stretching in the sauna effective for  increasing their range of motion.

 

Detoxification

 

Infrared sauna reduces the detoxification required via the liver and kidneys by the direct elimination of toxins through the skin. Two to three times more sweat is produced in the  infrared sauna than is typical in conventional hot air saunas. Greater removal of toxins such as acid waste, fat-soluble toxic residue, pesticides, and heavy metals is achieved, including: lead, mercury, aluminum, and cadmium.

 

Toxic Nation: A Report on Pollution in Canadians, reveals that toxic chemicals, such as DDT, PCB’S, pesticides, stain repellants, flame retardants, mercury, and lead are contaminating Canadians. Many of the chemicals discovered in the bodies of Canadians are associated with  cancer, hormone disruption, reproductive disorders, respiratory illnesses, and harming the   development of children.  The report is the first in Canada to test for a broad range of chemicals in average Canadians from across the country, and it demonstrates that toxic chemicals contaminate people no matter where they live, how old they are, or what they do for a living.

 

Boosts Immune Response

 

By raising the core temperature and creating a “hyperthermia” effect, the infrared sauna also improves a number of parameters in the immune system, and stimulates the body’s own natural healing processes.  This radiant therapy may shorten your recovery time from cold and flu  viruses and improve the immune response. It is reported to stimulate the immune system, the body’s own natural healing process.

 

Precautions

 

Prescription Drugs: check with your physician or pharmacist for possible changes in the drug’s  effect due to an interaction with infrared therapy.

 

Certain Ailments:  According to some authorities, it is considered inadvisable to raise the core  temperature of someone with Adrenal Suppression, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Multiple  Sclerosis and pregnant women

 

Joint Problems:  If a person has a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside.  Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.  Vigorous heating is in cases of enclosed   infections as in dental, in joints, or in any other tissues is not advisable.

 

Pregnancy:  or the suspicion of pregnancy, discontinuation of sauna use is recommended. 

 

Surgical Implants:  Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system.  Nevertheless, a person should consult their surgeon before receiving such therapy.  Certainly infrared therapy must be discontinued if a person experiences pain near any implants.

 

Silicone:  Silicone does adsorb infrared energy.  Infrared rays may warm implants silicone or  silicone prostheses for nose or ear replacement.  Since silicone melts at over 200 degrees Celsius, it should not be adversely affected by an infrared heat system.

 

Menstruation:  Heating of the lower back area of women during their cycle increases menstrual flow.  She can choose to allow herself to experience this short-term effect without worry or she may simply avoid using an infrared heat source at that time of her cycle.

 

Hemorrhage:  Hemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to hemorrhage should avoid infrared usage or any type of heating that would induce vasodilatation that can lead to the tendency  to bleed.

 

Worsened Condition: should any condition worsen with the use of an infrared heat system, the use of the system should be discontinued.
