Why Is Far Infrared Ray Important To The Human Body?
Far Infrared Ray(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 bloods vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.
The Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas
1.Better Circulation and Increased Energy
The sauna emits Far Infrared Ray 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.
2.Weight Loss Far Infrared Ray Sauna heat therapy can aid in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in substantial caloric loss in a sauna heat session.
3.Cardiovascular Health The Far Infrared Ray Sauna increases heart rate and blood circulation, crucial to maintaining one’s health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin, without heightening blood pressure.
4.Speed Recovery from Injuries For injuries, Far Infrared Ray generated heat 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.
5.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.
6.Stress Reduction & Relaxation Far Infrared Ray 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.
7. Skin Beautification For that sought after healthy glow, Far Infrared Ray Sauna heat therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone and texture. A Far Infrared Ray Sauna heat bath also provides a mild cleansing of the skin.
8.Improved Immune System By creating an “Artificial Fever”, Far Infrared Ray 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 Far Infrared Ray heat treatment in the early stages of a cold or flu has been known to stop the disease before the symptoms occur.
