What is Far Infrared Ray (FIR)?

Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat is a completely safe form of naturally occurring energy 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 air. 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.



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 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 a FAR Infrared Sauna are numerous. Saunas are often used in the treatment of diseases, drug addictions as well as for general therapy and well being.

Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas are said to include:

1. Better Circulation and Increased Energy
2. Weight Loss
3. Cardiovascular Health
4. Speed Recovery from Injuries
5. Detoxification
6. Improved Immune System
