Infrared Heat Therapy
Infrared Heat Therapy is a simple and painless therapy that uses light to treat acute and chronic pain. Infrared light penetrates below the skin layers, helping cells to regenerate and repair themselves. It also improves circulation in the body, creating faster healing of the deep tissue and longer pain relief. Infrared Heat Therapy causes no sun damage to the skin, and has been used heavily in East Asian countries to promote healing.

What is Infrared Heat Therapy and how does it help?
Infrared heat therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to penetrate below the skin layers to repair injuries of the body. Infrared heat therapy works because the light is absorbed by the photoreceptors in our cells, this light energy then fuels a series of metabolic processes. Blood flow to the body increases, and oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the cells. Cells now function properly and effectively, and damaged tissue can begin to repair and regenerate, reducing pain and inflammation.
Overall, when our infrared heat levels are higher, we feel healthier and are more prepared to deal with physical injuries, when our infrared heat levels are lower our health begins to decline and our body begins to age at a faster rate. This is why during winters, when the amount of sunlight decreases we often feel unenergized, weak, and more prone to sickness. Infrared heat therapy is recognized in helping the body remove toxins through perspiration, reducing tension and stress, improving lymphatic flow, and boosting the immune system.

The History of Infrared Heat Therapy
Infrared heat therapy has been in existence for thousands of years, being traced back to ancient civilizations like the Romans, ancient Chinese, and Egyptians. Palm Healers were the first to be credited with using infrared heat generated from their own hands to help ease pain. Infrared heat therapy was discovered as a healing source because people who received more safe sunlight exposure felt healthier and had more energy.
Is It safe?
Infrared heat therapy technology allows people to capture the benefits of the sun, without being exposed to harmful ultraviolet rays. Infrared heat has been used in Japan to help heal sunburns, and shorten the healing process. Infrared heat therapy is so safe and effective that it is used on infants in neonatal intensive care.
