How does Far Infrared (FIR) heat work?


The human body needs adequate doses of radiant heat rays to

function properly, along with most other forms of life on the planet.

These natural rays of light energy are hidden from sight because

they’re just below what we humans can see as color.


What is important to understand is how vital this natural

light energy is to your health and longevity. You already

know that your body is made-up of billions of individual cells.

It has a direct and positive influence on the functioning of cells.

Meaning, if you can improve the metabolic health of individual

cells in your body, imagine what the accumulative affect could be?


Helping to improve and enhance the health of individual cells in

your body can dramatically improve overall cellular functioning and your health.

It turns out; specific wavelengths of Far Infra-red heat (9-14 microns) are

vibrating at the same intrinsic frequency as your own cells. So through a natural

phenomenon, know as “resonance absorption”, you get a boost or “spark” to

your internal engine. Far Infra-red rays fire up your cellular metabolism.


The really cool part of all this biological occurrence is your cells

only absorb rays of radiant heat that match it’s own frequency. So if

the heat energy waves aren’t the same, they pass harmlessly straight

through the tissues. The radiant energy that is absorbed improves overall

cellular performance. The whole metabolic process perks up everything

from better enzyme production to the elimination of waste

by products and toxins.






FIR causes the release of nitric oxide. This stimulates vasodilatation

of the microcirculatory system, bringing more blood to the muscles. (4)*



A group of 20 women riding stationery bicycles 3 times per week for 4

weeks exposed to FIR lost an average of 8cm’s or 444% more as compared

to 20 women doing the same exercise without FIR. (3)*



FIR activates the colour sensitive chemicals (chromophores & cytochrome

systems) to depths of 23 centimetres (or about 10 inches), stimulating the

energy processes in cells. (1)*



The mitochondria (power plants of the cells) produce more ATP

(energy cellulite) is fat mixed with toxins that are trapped, in part due to an

underachieve circulatory system. Cellulite is so visible, in part due to a

weakened connective tissue. FIR helps rebuild connective tissue

and has been shown to reduce cellulite. (12)*



FIR has also been shown to significantly

increase the range off flexibility. (13)*



Growth hormone release is induced by an increase in body temperature

and not by exercise itself. Growth hormone increase muscle mass, calcium

retention, and lipolysis (the breakdown of stored fat. (14)*



Muscle fatigue was reduced by up to 42% when

exposing muscle to FIR (5,6)*



Certain tissue regenerating genes including interns, laminin, gap junction

proteins and kinetin proteins have shown a two-to-five-fold increase upon

exposure to FIR. (7,8)*



Due to increased production of ATP and quick dilation of the microcirculatory

system, a person can lessen warm-up time and work at a high level of exertion

without increasing blood pressure. (1,9,10)*



Increase blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing

built-up toxins and waste. Sweat is the only way to remove certain carcinogenic

PCB’s, dioxins, phthalates, and volatile organic hydrocarbons. (11)*



The mitochondria (power plants of the cells)

produce more ATP (energy currency of the cells)

when FIR is introduced. (1,2)*



DNA synthesis of fibroblasts, which affects the

elasticity of the skin, increasefive-fold with FIR. The

result is younger-looking, more beautiful skin. (1,7)*



Penetrating heat from FIR has long

been proven to reduce pain and increase

circulation to areas of discomfort. (13)*
