What is infrared wave?
The visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum EMS is what we call light and this range is from the longer wave length red to the shorter wave length of violet. This visible portion which can be seen by the naked eye is a small segment of the range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Ultraviolet, gamma and x-rays are shorter wave lengths which emit high energy radiation which can be damaging to us.
At the other end of the invisible spectrum are infrared, radios and microwave which are low energy longer wavelengths. Infrared radiation although not visible can be experienced as heat. The sun emits infrared rays and amazingly our body also emits infrared radiation. Just by rubbing the palm of the hands releases the energy felt as heat. This infrared radiation is generated to “lay hand on areas of the body where increased circulation could reduce discomfort of swelling and pain”. This is the principle on which the popular practice of Reiki is based. This healing practice dates back hundreds of years and is still used today in Eastern and now Western cultures.
Types of office and home Far Infrared Ray FIR devices used in healthcare include:
✔ Infrared lamps
✔ Infrared sauna
✔ Infrared mats
The therapeutic value of FIR lamps, sauna and mats
FIR rays can penetrate the layer of skin, tissues (muscles, bones) and organs of the body. The rays gently elevate the surface temperature of the skin and this result in dilation of the blood capillaries. The blood circulation is increased and therefore more oxygen and nutrients are circulated to the areas of the body most in need of detoxification and regeneration.
Medical conditions that may be improved using FIR ray technology
Far infrared FIR therapy is used in the medical and healthcare services to promote healing, soothe painful tissue, and stimulate the natural detoxification function of the body. This radiation is also reported to improve mental well-being
✔ Skin conditions
✔ Pain including sore muscles
✔ Reducing fat deposits by boosting metabolism to burn calories
✔ Chronic fatigue
✔ Elimination of water retention
✔ Detoxification to eliminate lactic acids, free fatty acids, excess sodium and uric acid as there is sweating when the FIR therapy is used
✔ Improve circulation
✔ Lowering of blood pressure
✔ Lowering of blood sugar
The use of FIR ray device for the treatment of cancer is very promising as there are reports of this therapy shrinking the size of cancerous tumors by targeting the abnormal tissue and sparing the healthy tissue.
A word of caution
While there are health benefits of FIR healing therapy there is a word of caution with its use. Designers of medical devices have made therapeutic devices accessible and safe for home use. It is important however to read the instruction and use as advised by the manufacturers. With respect to the FIR ray lamp, one must be careful about using the device. The distance for use of the FIR ray from the body and the period of exposure to the rays are important instructions to take note of.
