Far infrared has the power to heal the human body
Harness the power of the sun. Far infrared is part of the sun’s invisible light spectrum that is essential to plants, animals and humans. Infrared heat is a form of energy that penetrates the body by warming muscles and tissue directly without heating the intervening air. The body produces infrared energy to keep us warm and repair body tissue. Far infrared energy is radiated through the skin at 3 to 50 microns with the greatest output at 9.4 microns. Occasionally the infrared energy in our body tissue needs a boost to insure healing and tissue repair. The body will selectively absorb infrared to boost a tissue’s infrared energy. This process is called resonant absorption. Far infrared rays are completely safe and are used in hospitals to warm newborn babies.
Benefits of Far Infrared on the Human Body
The human body also absorbs infrared in the 3 to 50 micron range, The far infrared waves between 6 to 14 microns have proven to have special regenerative effects on the body, with an optimum absorption at the 9.4 micron frequency. TheraSauna® emits the greatest amount of infrared in the 9.4 micron range. When any cell or tissue in the body is exposed to these levels of infrared heat, response mechanisms stimulate the healing process in the body.

Far infrared heat waves:
Dilate blood vessels and capillaries, providing increased flow of rich oxygenated blood to muscles and joints.
Reduce muscle spasms and promote healing of injured and sore muscle fibers.
Improves flow within the lymphatic system to reduce swelling and inflammation.
Stimulates cellular and enzyme activity.
Promotes the adhesion and osmosis of water molecules across the cellular membrane
