5 Benefits of Infrared Heating

The heaters emit a therapeutic heat that directly permeates the body, alleviating aches and increasing circulation, and offers a whole range of health benefits. Our heaters are safe and effective. Infrared is also eco-friendly and in alignment with our commitment to decrease our carbon footprint. We invite you to experience the many health benefits that infrared heat has to offer:
1. Increased Flexibility:
Far Infrared heat directly warms your muscles, allowing for greater range of motion and flexibility. Studies have shown that with FIR heaters you increase your ability to stretch 3 times further. This will allow you to go deeper in your poses and experience more relief in your body.
2. Increase CirculatioN:
Far Infrared heat has been shown to stimulate blood flow by opening up the bodies capillaries. This has an incredible effect on your body, it can lower blood pressure, oxygenate the organs, and rid the body of toxins.
Simply put, Far Infrared heat makes you sweat! As your body absorbs the heat, water molecules begin to vibrate, which cases them to wring out impurities from our cells and expel them into the blood. These impurities are then released from your body through sweat, creating a deep, detoxifying cleanse on a cellular level.
4. Weight Loss:
The human body has an impressive temperature regulation. It wants to stay at a constant temperature and works very hard to make that happen. As the body heats up, its natural cooling system kicks in, which takes energy and burns calories. Far Infrared also increases the metabolism between the blood and tissue, which also burns calories.
5. Pain Relief:
Far Infrared directly penetrates tissues, muscles and joints, allowing them to heal and regenerate. This is accomplished through a combination of the aforementioned increased circulation, oxygenation, and detoxification. Far Infrared heat is extremely effective in the healing of both minor and major injuries and is a prefered method of treatment for many physical therapist.
