  1. In our natural state we as humans emit far infrared energy. 

    Far infrared energy is simply the thermal radiation emitted by objects near room temperature. It is a red force that can be seen under a microscope.

    According to, typically infrared light is microscopically emitted or absorbed by molecules when they change their rotational-vibrational movements.

    Both humans and animals emit far infrared energy. In addition, infrared is also emitted from the sun’s rays.

    The intensity of the infrared energy produced by the body fluctuates constantly. When our infrared energy is high, we feel strong and healthy. When our far infrared energy is low, we are more subject to disease and different illnesses, and tend to age much faster. 

    By way of conversion, infrared heat penetrates organic substances (like the human body) without changing the temperature of the air in between.

    For instance, on a cloudy day when the sun is obscured, we feel cooler all of a sudden, but the surrounding air temperature has yet to be affected.

    This is because the clouds blocked the sun’s infrared rays from penetrating through our bodies. And the effect is that we feel cooler.

    The benefits of infrared heat therapy are becoming increasingly popular.                 

    Far infrared heat offers amazing health benefits partially because of its ionizing effects to the water molecules which make up 90% of the human body.

    Far infrared steam rooms, saunas and machines activate major bodily functions such as:

    • Increases circulation without putting a strain on the heart.
    • Increases oxygen and white blood cell levels in the blood.
    • Stimulates weight loss by activating mitochondria enzyme activities thus increasing metabolism.
    • Breaks down cellulite.
    • Stimulates the production of collagen in our bodies.
    • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet.
    • Helps to reduce toxins through perspiration.
    • Relieves pain from arthritis, joint aches and pains due to injury, ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
    • Stimulates connective tissue cells for injury repair.
    • Increases cellular growth; as well as DNA and protein synthesis for tissue repair and regeneration.
    • Great for healing burns, scar tissue, and skin problems.
    • Relieves sore muscles and muscles spasms.









    The sun produces infrared energy as well. The infrared energy produced by the sun is a form of natural far infrared therapy.

    However, due to the damaging ultra-violet rays from sunlight, and the inability to control outside temperatures throughout the year, it is best to resort to infrared therapy treatments.
