As one relaxes in the gentle heat of the far infrared, one’s body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association report, a single far infrared session burns as many calories as rowing or jogging for 30 minutes.
Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness
Far infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many kinds of arthritic and muscular-skeletal disorders. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Stiffness, aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced or eliminated using far infrared.
Removes Bodily Toxins and Assists in Detoxification
Far infrared helps to detoxify the body in several important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify the body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulphuric acid, cholesterol and uric acid. In addition to causing the body to sweat, far infrared is capable of removing toxins via several other body systems.
Reduces Stress and Fatigue
The gentle warmth of the far infrared rays helps to sooth nerves and relaxes tight or knotted muscles. The end result is reduced stress and improved energy.
