Far Infrared energy is not only safe,
but highly beneficial for our bodies.
Far Infrared lamps are actively used
for medical treatments by doctors,
chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical
therapists, and massage therapists
for arthritis, joints pain, stiff
muscles, injuries to tendons and ligaments
to promote a faster self body healing
Infrared heat is "radiant"
heat. Radiant heat is simply a form
of energy that heats objects directly
through a process called conversion,
without having to heat the air in
Radiant heat is also called Infrared
Energy. The infrared segment of the
electromagnetic spectrum cannot be
seen, but can be perceived as heat.
Our sun produces most of its energy
output in the infrared segment of
the spectrum. Our atmosphere has a
"window" in it that allows
infrared energy rays in the 7 ~ 14
micron range to safely reach the earth's
surface. When warmed, the earth radiates
infrared rays in the 7 ~ 14 micron
band with its peak output at 10 microns.
According to Dr. Tsu-Tsair Oliver
Chi, in his summation on the mechanism
of actions of infrared devices tuned
to the human body; tissues needing
a boost in their output selectively
absorb these rays. The internal production
of the infrared energy that normally
occurs within our tissues is associated
with a variety of healing responses
and may require a boost to a maximal
level to insure the fullest healing
response possible in a tissue, which
is being repaired. After boosting
a tissue's level to its maximum, the
remaining rays pass onward harmlessly.
This phenomenon is called "resonant
Regular use of a infrared sauna may
be as effective as a means of cardiovascular
conditioning and burning of calories
as regular exercise.
