Healing Principles of Infrared
- Far-infrared radiant heat has the ability to penetrate into the body. When the energy penetrates through the skin to the lower tissue, it transforms from light energy to heat energy. The heat energy then creates a thermal effect on the deep tissue causing blood vessels to dilate and promote better blood circulation.
- According to Encyclopedia.com, infrared rays occupy the part of the electromagnetic spectrum with a frequency less than that of visible light and greater than radio waves. This infrared radiation is the thermal or heat radiation that is in use in the infrared sauna. According to sources like Evolution Health.com, because this thermal energy penetrates the body without heating up the surrounding atmosphere of the body, the infrared sauna works more efficiently than traditional saunas that raise the temperature of the air with steam.
- Some of the benefits attributed to infrared saunas is the ability to detoxify the body when the heat penetrates the skin, the burning of fat calories and inducing relaxation. Some also claim that it helps to improve the immune system and control your blood pressure.
