was a 20% decrease in stiffness at 45's as compared with
33's in rheumatoid finger joints, which correlated perfectly
to both subjective and objective observation of stiffness.
Any stiffened joint and thickened connective tissues should
respond in a similar fashion.
The deep heat of Far Infrared Sauna helps peripheral
blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle
and soft tissue injuries. In Europe, radiant heat therapy
is widely used to treat patients suffering many forms
of arthritis. FAR Infrared Heat has been proven effective
in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle
spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculoskeletal
For athletes who push their body's to the limit, creating
lactic acid build-up, which often results in stiffness
and pain, the Infrared sauna offers sweet relief as it
gently metabolizes and disperses the lactic acid. Increased
blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products
and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles
so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when
tissues are warm, promoting greater flexibility and range
of motion. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that
come with aging is reduced or eliminated.
