Far Infra Red Rays
Far Infrared (also known as Far Infrared Ray or heat therapy) is a form of energy in humans and animal, and is also emitted from the sunlight. Far infrared ray (also known as FIR) produced by human and animal body varies from time to time. When there is enough amount of energy being produced, our bodies feel healthy and we are able to fight back the ailments. With the vast technological advancements it is possible to get yourself exposed to far infrared rays for hours and the good thing is that it can be controlled manually, so it never burns our skin. It is the healthiest and safe way of getting yourself exposed to the required amount of heat through FIR. Systematic exposures to FIR never cause sany burn marks or have any adverse effect.
Heat therapies and energy medicines are long been used by ancient Chinese and Japanese health practitioners. For ages healing touch therapies are used for improved cell growth, DNA and protein synthesis in cells. Traditional heat therapies as compared to FIR have their drawbacks as they proved to
be uncomfortable, unhygienic and many a times lost their effectiveness.
FIR therapy offers many other benefits;
1. It helps people suffering from all forms of arthritis, relieves muscle spasms and joint stiffness.
It increases the extensibility of collagen tissues and capillaries which is good for stimulation of blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation.
2. FIR therapy has proven extremely beneficial in weight control program. It is observed that one hour under the FIR therapy raise the body metabolism and body temperature that it burns 900 calories. FIR heat also breaks down cellulite – trapped water, fat and waste in the body
3. It helps to prevent hypertension, arteriosclerosis, and coronary artery disease and blood circulation. It relieves nervous tension and relaxes autoneuro muscles.
4. FIR helps to improve skin conditions and all-around beauty treatment.
5. It is also said to help body strengthen the immunity system by stimulating increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by the bone marrow and killer T-cells by the thymus.
There are diverse kinds of hyperthermia depending on the heating temperature, the parts of the body and methods of heating. According to the heating temperature, they can be divided into; fever range hyperthermia, low temperature hyperthermia, conventional hyperthermia and high temperature hyperthermia. The temperature of fever range hyperthermia is around 38°C, low temperature hyperthermia is around 41°C, and conventional hyperthermia is more than 43°C and high temperature hyperthermia is more than 65°C. According to the parts of the body, they can be divided into; local hyperthermia, whole body hyperthermia and regional hyperthermia. According to the methods of heating, they can be divided into; supersonic hyperthermia, RF hyperthermia, microwave hyperthermia, laser hyperthermia, hot water hyperthermia and far infrared rays hyperthermia. They also can be divided depending on the ways of treatments; external hyperthermia, interstitial hyperthermia and inter capillary hyperthermia.
Far infrared radiation may:
- Activates the water molecules in the body.
- Increases the level of oxygen in the cells
- Reduces swelling and pain
- Provides penetrating warmth
