What is Far Infrared (FIR)?
FIR infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight without the skin damaging UV rays. Aware of it's health benefits, NASA, has utilized this heat for years and in Asia and Europe it has already revolutionized health and beauty products. FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate & reflect. The human body is able to absorb FIR because of it's ability to penetrate through the skin into the subcutaneous tissues where it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissue causes blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting better blood circulation, and the heat produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating. This dilation of vascular and peripheral blood vessels, brings oxygen to joints and extremities, relaxing stiff muscles which helps to speed the healing of sprains and strains. The increased blood flow enables aching and injured muscles to recover faster along with the added benefit of aiding metabolic and toxic waste to be purged from the body through the skin during perspiration. In Chinese medicine the skin is known as the third kidney because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating up to 30% of body waste. All of the increased blood circulation during infrared therapy causes great amounts of nutrients to be carried to the skin, promoting a healthy tone and texture along with a mile cleansing.
* REDUCES STRESS AND FATIGUE
Perhaps the most immediate relief that SUDATONIC™ Infrared System offers, is simple relaxation as it melts away the stresses and tension of "modern" life. Just a few minutes in the warmth of the Sudatonic™ blanket, and you begin to have an an overall massaging effect, soothing nerves and muscles. You'll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind.
* REMOVES WASTES AND TOXINS
Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing stored toxins and wastes. Daily sweating will help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of highly toxic heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other compounds.
* IMPROVES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The SUDATONIC™ Infrared System's deep heat raises your inner body temperature, inducing an artificial fever (mild hyperthermia). Fever is the body's natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
* RELIEVES PAIN AND JOINT STIFFNESS
The deep heat of the SUDATONIC™ Infrared System helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. In Europe, radiant heat is widely used to help those with many forms of arthritis. It has been proven effective in the easing of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculoskeletal ailments. For athletes who push their bodies to the limit, creating lactic acid build-up, which often results in stiffness and pain, the SUDATONIC™ Infrared System offers sweet relief as it metabolizes and disperses the lactic acid. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen depleted muscles so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, promoting greater flexibility and range of motion. Much of the stiffness aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced or eliminated.
* BURNS CALORIES. CONTROLS WEIGHT AREDUCES CELLULITE
As you relax in the SUDATONIC™ Infrared blanket, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. Referring to "old fashioned, traditional saunas", The Journal of the American Medical Association stated, "in a single sauna session you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes". Saunas have traditionally been used by European beauticians to help eliminate cellulite. Since the radiant heat of the SUDATONIC™ Infrared System warms many times more deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.
* IMPROVES SKIN
The profuse sweating achieved in the SUDATONIC™ Infrared System carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulationdraws your skin's own natural nutrients to the surface. You will see improved tone, elasticity, texture, and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions, and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.
* INCREASES BLOOD CIRCULATION AND STRENGTHENS THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation,providing the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops.
How Far Infrared work.
Infrared energy is not only beneficial to our health, but very safe to use. Far Infrared lamps are used to aid in the relief of arthritis, joint pain, stiff muscles, injuries to tendons and ligaments and to promote a faster overall "self-body" healing effect.
Inhibited Cellular Function
Micro-circulation impeded by fat cell groups.
Nutrients not reaching skin surface, leading to unhealthy skin.
Circulation not reaching fat cells, preventing proper fact cell storage and elimination.
Fat cell growth.
Optimal Cellular Function
With micro-circulation stimulated by the Sudatonic™ Infrared System; nutrients, oxygen and energy are provided for healthy, optimal looking skin.
