The Advantages Of Infrared Heat Therapy

By Adriana Noton

Every time you are outside, you are experiencing infrared heat on some level. This is the rays of heat that can’t be seen but warm the skin, such as on a cloudy day when you are out yet your skin is warmed. The far infrared heat that comes from the sun is not dangerous like the ultraviolet rays. These light waves have shown to have a natural and safe quality that is good for the health, which is why many are now considering infrared heat therapy.

Infrared radiant heat is absorbed directly into the body, usually through a man made source for the therapy. The rays that come from this ionize and activate water molecules in the body which provides many health benefits. It can help to increase the circulation of blood, stimulate the manufacturing of collagen, and help your body eliminate harmful toxins that have built up. Some are even discovering the beauty benefits of such therapy. And, unlike traditional heat therapies, this is more comfortable to the skin and penetrates deeper.

Because this heat therapy penetrates deep into tissues it is often used for pain relief. Arthritis sufferers can greatly benefit from this because it decreases the stiffness in the joints. Athletes can feel the benefits by using it on sore muscles, inflammations, and muscle spasms. As well as decreasing some ailments, it also increases flexibility. But this can also be used for general headaches and sprains that occur in daily life.

People interested in weight control and weight loss have also found that heat therapy can actually help. Studies have been done to show that a significant amount of calories can be burned within a thirty minute session. This therapy can imitate the benefits of exercise because the infrared stimulates the consumption of energy. Those that cannot exercise because of their health issues or perhaps because of a disability such as being in a wheel chair have found to respond positively to this.

Toxins are a major reason on why so many people fall ill today and they get deep within the body, hindering the organs from properly doing their jobs. Eliminating those toxins can help improve the health and heat therapy can help that. As you perspire during the therapy session, this helps to release and remove the harmful toxins that are building up in your body.

The beauty benefits are now also being seen. It is reported that it helps to stimulate the production of collagen and is good for the skin itself. It works to eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, even the crow’s feet around the eyes. As it helps to smooth the skin, it has also shown results in helping to heal wounds, scars, and cuts.

There are many different sources when it comes to infrared heat therapy. You have the options of using a light, which comes in many different sizes and shapes. Some stand alone and others can be used in hand. There are body pads that wrap around your body and wrist pads that wrap around the wrist for deep heating treatment. There are also saunas that you can either visit for this type of therapy or mobile home saunas that you can use in your home.

Infrared therapy has been around for a long time and in many countries. Just a half hour or less of your time can help you enjoy many different health benefits. It is a perfect form of therapy for all types of people, whether they have disabilities or are able bodied. Pain relief, beauty benefits, flexibility, and weight loss control are just a few of the many health enhancements that you can get through this heat treatment.

If you’re looking for a way to revitalize your body, make sure to try an infrared sauna. By using infrared therapy, it stimulates the body’s natural sweat mechanism, providing you with a ton of sauna benefits!
