FAR INFRARED WAVES
Far infrared waves can penetrate up to three inches deep to generate warmth that can provide immense relief to muscles and internal organs. The gentle heat produced in far infrared heat therapy exerts an analgesic effect and can help reduce or eliminate chronic pains that seniors often experience in various parts of the body.Stiffness in the joints from arthritis can be significantly relieved.Studies show that far infrared heat makes connective tissue more flexible, permits greater joint movement and brings about increased levels of endorphins, which ease pain.
Far infrared therapy also causes blood vessels to expand.This expansion leads to improved circulation and allows the immune system cells and chemicals to converge on the injured areas to facilitate the healing process.Despite the heat induced, FIR therapy does not cause any significant rise in core body temperature or in blood pressure, which makes it safer for seniors with cardiovascular problems.
Benefits of Far Infrared Heat Therapy For Seniors
Seniors are more likely to suffer from diseases such as chronic fatigue , arthritis , falls and injuries, chronic pains in the back and joints, elevated blood pressure, sleep disorders and many other severe conditions. Life-style habit and diet changes are often part of the overall treatment of these conditions. But there is also much to be said for time-tested techniques such as heat therapy & its latest version, Far Infrared Therapy i.e.FIR Therapy,can surely provide natural pain relief.
Far infrared light is the frequency of invisible light that is generated naturally by the sun. FIR Therapy is a type of low energy therapy that takes advantage of the heat generated by waves of energy from the far end of the infrared spectrum.This safe and natural alternative therapy can be used in the treatment of a variety of health problems such as arthritis,muscle pain, spasms and shoulder or joint stiffness.
FIR therapy also benefits the body by:
• Helping the body remove toxins through perspiration
• Reducing tension and stress
• Improving lymphatic flow
• Boosting the immune system
• Increasing the circulation of blood deep in the tissues
