One of the primary uses for far-infrared heat therapy is to help reduce suffering from chronic pain and injury. Far-infrared heat gets deep into the body’s soft tissue, making it a great source of relief from arthritis pain to backaches. Far-infrared heat also helps to improve the mobility of the joint or muscle in question. Whether you are dealing with muscle soreness from swelling, this therapy can be used to help you improve your condition. Everyone from the elderly to athletes can benefit from this method of loosening sore muscles and stiff joints, without the use of ointments or creams.
Far-infrared heat therapy works to improve the body’s natural healing process; helping to relieve pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation, without increasing blood pressure. This improved circulation allows more oxygen to reach tissues and nerves, helping to reduce pain and speed up the healing process.
This deep penetrating heat gently causes an artificial “fever” without actually being sick. As a result, blood circulation is improved to the treated area bringing more healing oxygen to joints and extremities and speeding healing of injuries. Those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, ALS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease & Parkinson’s Disease can enjoy an easy to use form of pain relief.
Relieve overworked Muscles, Stiffness, Cramps and Muscle Pains: Far Infrared Saunas use Far Infrared energy wavelengths which penetrate anywhere from 1-2 inches deep into the human body. Far Infrared heat penetrates deep enough to affect the muscles which often become stiff due to everyday activities and stress. Heat relaxes the muscles and allows them to loosen up and regain their elasticity.
Infrared heat also makes muscles more flexible and gives them a larger range of motion, in addition to providing relief from cramps and joint pain.
