FAQ about FAR Infrared Energy
Is it new?
Infrared has been in use in Europe for more than 10 years and in the States for over 5 now ... millions of treatments have been performed.
Is it painful?
The intensity of the treatment is regulated by the therapist and generates a feeling of warmth, comfort and relaxation.
How does infrared heat therapy relieve pain?
FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Many people use FIR heat as a successful treatment for arthritis, rheumatism and muscle spasms.
How does infrared heat therapy control weight?
Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110?F and the body sweats out fats and toxins.
How does infrared heat therapy provide the same effects of exercise?
The heart receives a workout similar to a 6-mile run in a 20-30 minute FIR blanket session and the body perspires the same amount as a 6-mile run. Infrared blankets are perfect for those that do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit rigorous activity.
How does infrared heat therapy eliminate toxins?
Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) and mercury accumulate in the body during modern daily life. The body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating but the process is sometimes too slow. Infrared heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detoxify the skin. The FIR heat
technology simply speeds up the body's natural process!
How does infrared heat therapy improved immune system?
Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system's healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. The immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. FIR heat therapy induces an "artificial fever" by heating up the body but without the pains of an illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the "artificial fever". Recent studies also show that colds and flulike illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR heat therapy.
How does infrared heat therapy reduce stress?
Infrared heat therapy loosens muscles and relaxes the body prior to a massage. Many massage therapists use infrared heat to provide more thorough and effective treatments.
How does infrared heat therapy benefit my skin?
Infrared heat improves circulation, expels dirt & chemicals and removes dead cells on the
surface of the skin. All of these benefits lead to a more soft and firm complexion.
Does it help when treating the appearance and "cause" of cellulite?
Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and toxic waste, which are trapped in pockets below the skin. Due to at least twice the depth of heat penetration into cellulite combined with up to 10 times the level of heating in these tissues, Infrared can be significantly more effective for flushing of these toxic build-up areas than any other conventional heat treatment. Profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body.
Can it replace a diet?
Never!!! A sensible diet can help you maintain a healthy weight. Infrared acts effectively on targeting those stubborn areas that diet and exercise just don't seem to be able to reach.
Is the treatment specifically for women?
NO, definitely not!! Both men and women can benefit with the Infrared Body Wrap treatments.
