Far Infra Red Therapy
What is Far Infrared Therapy?
Far infrared is part of the spectrum of light emanating from the sun. Far infrared is not visible to the eye, but you feel it as heat penetrating into your skin. You may be familiar with the infrared heat lamps sometimes used in bathrooms. Far infrared produces heat in a similar fashion, but is much more efficient because it penetrates even deeper into the skin. The effectiveness of these products is enhanced by nano far-infrared emitting elements. These elements, composed of oxides of zirconium, aluminum, zinc, titanium and antimony have been the subject of studies around the world and are believed to retain body heat and emit safe far-infrared rays that penetrate deep into the joint and surrounding tissues which increase blood flow, reduces inflamation and decreases pain. Far infrared light and its therapeutic properties have been studied in China and Japan for over 30 years.
