What is far infrared heat?
Far-infrared waves are a safe form of
light energy that is thermal. In other words, we experience
infrared waves every day in the form of heat like sunlight,
a fire or a warm sidewalk. Far-infrared waves heat objects
by direct light conversion – a process that directly warms
the object, not the surrounding air. It’s the heat you feel
penetrate your skin when you stand in the sun - and miss
when you walk into the shade. Far-infrared heat (FIR) is
also referred to as radiant heat, infrared heat or infrared
Far-infrared heat has been widely used in
the healthcare industry; in fact, many neonatal care units
are often equipped with infrared heating systems to keep
babies warm. Far Infrared Heat is the invisible part of the
Sun’s spectrum. It has nothing to do with the ultraviolet
light which can damage your skin. FIR waves are capable of
penetrating deep into the human body, where they gently
elevate the body's surface temperature and activate major
Deep Penetrating Heat
The human body can easily absorb
far-infrared heat because of its deep penetrating ability.
Studies have shown that far infrared waves can actually
penetrate up to 2-3 inches deep into muscular tissue and
ligaments. When far infrared heat penetrates through the
skin into muscular tissue and ligaments, it transforms from
light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the
deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to
dilate which improves blood circulation and promotes healing

How does it work?
Our bodies radiate far infrared energy
through the skin at 3 to 50 microns, with most output at 9.4
microns.. Therasage products emit between 4-14 microns which
matches so closely to the human body's radiant energy that
our bodies take in close to 93% of the infrared waves that
reach our skin. Therefore, FIR rays have the ability to
penetrate deeply (up to 3) and permeate thoroughly into the
What are the benefits of far-infrared
Far-infrared 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.
Reduces Stress and Fatigue
Far Infrared heat reduces stress by
loosening the muscles and relaxing the body. The gentle
warmth gives you an overall massaging effect, soothing
jagged nerves and knotted muscles. You'll feel rejuvenated
and renewed, restored in both body and mind.
Improves Blood Circulation
Far-infrared heat is absorbed by 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. The increased blood circulation, but not blood
pressure, stimulates the tiny blood vessels in the skin to
expand accommodating the increased blood flow.
Removes Harmful Toxins
When toxins are present, blood
circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. The
body's immune system is inhibited, which makes it difficult
to fight disease. When far-infrared heat is applied, the
large water molecules in our bodies that contain toxic gases
like sulphur dioxide, carbon dioxide, lead, mercury and
chlorine vibrate and are broken down. The encapsulated toxic
materials and gases are then purged from the body through
the skin, during perspiration.
Improves Immune System
The infrared heat raises your inner body
temperature, inducing an “artificial fever”. Fever is the
body's natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the
immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This
enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination
of toxins and wastes, increases your overall health and
resistance to disease.
Far Infrared Heat increases blood
circulation and the lymphatic flow stimulating the sweat
glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating
can help detoxify the body as it rids itself of an
accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (lead,
mercury, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine,
sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.
