What is Infrared Therapy?
X-Rays, Ultra Violet, Visible Light, Infrared Rays, Microwaves are natural energy with distinctive wavelengths. For instance, the wavelength from 0.4~0.76 microns is visible light. 0.76 to 1000 microns is Infrared Ray. The border between Near Infrared and FAR Infrared is 4 microns. Humans cannot see FAR Infrared Rays but all objects such as Sunlight, Plants, Rocks, Furniture, Paper, Books, have FAR Infrared Rays. Any object with temperature contains far infrared rays. Every object in the world has temperature and therefore has thermal energy and emits a distinctive wavelength. Night vision cameras measure thermal, infrared energy.
FAR Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum. The power of this light proves greatly beneficial to the human body. Health practitioners are increasingly becoming aware of the many healing advantages of infrared heat.
This light energy is essential for human beings and all living things in the world. When FAR Infrared light penetrates through skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy.
Thermal effects within the deep layers of the tissues cause blood vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation. The heat produced helps to rid the body of toxins and metabolic waste through sweating.
