FAR Infrared (FIR) ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight, which falls within the same family of Infrared Rays in the light spectrum. The energy is essential and beneficial for all human beings. FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect withing the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting better blood circulation, and the heat produced helps to rid the body of toxins and metabolic waste through sweating.
In addition, the heat stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels bringing oxygen to joints and extremities as well as relaxation of stiff muscles. The increased blood flow helps aching and injured muscles recover faster because of the stronger blood flow and quicker metabolic and toxic waste productions purged from the body through the skin during perspiration. The skin is known in Chinese medicine as the third kidney because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating up to 30% if body waste.
Additionally, FIR Heat therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone, texture and mild cleansing of the skin.
