The Benefits of Far Infrared Treatments

Although more and more people are learning firsthand about the fabulous benefits of a far infrared treatment, many still possess very little knowledge of this igroundbreaking facility.

The following information has been compiled to help spread the good news with the intention of placing more people on the path to greater health, relaxation and happiness.

Far infrared waves are thermal, meaning they are felt as heat.

Far infrared saunas:

The radiant heat of a far infrared treatment is efficient because it warms the user directly. The body absorbs as much as 93 percent of the heat, causing perspiration and producing a vast array of health benefits. Unlike in traditional saunas where temperatures range from 60 to 105 degrees Celsius, the temperatures of far infrared typically range from 38 to 60 degrees Celsius. The temperature inside a far infrared treatment box is adjustable and comfortable. This allows a person to perspire faster and to tolerate a longer period of time inside the sauna.

The lower heat range of far infrared is safer for people with cardiovascular risk factors or fragile health because lower temperatures don’t dramatically elevate heart rate and blood pressure. Far infrared radiant heat is a form of naturally occurring energy that heats objects by direct light conversion. Direct light conversion warms only the object and does not raise the temperature of the surrounding free air.

The radiant heat of far infrared has been shown to be especially beneficial to people with sports injuries, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and other chronic pain conditions.
