Infrared therapy is a type of treatment that uses infrared light to promote healing in the body. Infrared light is not a form of the visible light spectrum, but we feel it as heat because the energy emitted from infrared light stimulates the water in our bodies to generate energy, which is what you feel as warmth. While infrared radiation does not emit visible light, it is a part of what is called the electromagnetic spectrum.
Infrared radiation has been used for centuries to treat a variety of health conditions and more recently has become popular as a way to improve overall health. Don’t let the term radiation fool you, infrared is non-ionising, meaning that it is not harmful.
There are many health benefits to using infrared therapy, including improved circulation, reduced inflammation, lower blood pressure, wound healing, increased metabolism, weight loss, and improved detoxification.
