1. Pain Reduction & Healing
Far-infrared radiant heat increases blood flow to the treated area. The increased oxygen and nutrient supply relieves pain, diminishes joint stiffness, stops muscle spasms, reduces inflammation, and speeds healing in the damaged tissue. This treatment is especially effective on sprains, strains, bursitis, peripheral vascular diseases, arthritis, chronic joint and muscle pain as well as a variety of soft tissue sports injuries.
Radiant heat also promotes muscle relaxation which increases comfort, reduces stress and induces sleep. Studies have shown that exposure to FIR for 1 hour can also significantly reduce blood pressure.
3. Aesthetic Skin Improvements
Far infrared heat is believed to increase collagen production, reducing wrinkles and signs of aging. The Smoothbeam and CoolTouch infrared laser systems are commonly used to treat acne. The beams emitted from these devices shrink the sebaceous glands and virtually eliminates acne. Far infrared can also be used to open pores for deep skin cleansing and aesthetic purposes.
4. Blocking Electromagnetic Fields
Studies in Japan and Sweden have concluded that far infrared radiant heat counters the negative effects of electromagnetic fields emitted from man-made structures like high-tension power lines, cell phones, and computer display terminals. Like EM, EMF Cellular stickers.
5. Dental Applications
Far infrared heat has been used to successfully treat gum inflammation, tooth pain, and muscular spasm. Many Japanese dentists use far infrared treatment on a regular basis for gum inflammation and pain suppression. Examples are the EM-X® Ceramics used in Dr. Don's® products.
