Far Infrared is the 'chi' energy in humans and animals, also emitted from sunlight. The intensity of Far Infrared produced by the human body constantly fluctuates. When its intensity is high, we feel healthy and are able to overcome ailment, when it begins to decline, we are subject to disease, illness and tend to age more quickly. Far-Infrared heat will never cause our skin to burn, it is completely healthy and safe for all living things.

Strengthens Cardiovascular System - As the body increases sweat production to cool itself, the heart pumps blood at a greater rate boosting circulation. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while blood pressure drops for improved cardiovascular fitness.

Boosts Immune System- boosts the immune response to kill viruses and bacteria.  Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes produced by the infrared heat, your overall health and resistance to disease is increased.  Taking the toxic load off the body quickly improves allergies.

Pain Relief - Stimulating the dilation of peripheral blood vessels brings relief to muscles and speeds the healing of soft tissue injuries. Infrared heat has been successfully used to reduce pain from a variety of conditions including whiplash, arthritis, bursitis, sciatica, back pain, neuritis, menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, migraines, gout and chronic muscle spasms.

Speed Recovery from Injuries - bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, speeding the healing of sprains and strains, thus relieving pain and reducing the time it takes the human body to recover from an injury.

Weight Loss and Cellulite - Toxins stored in fat are decreased making it easier for weight loss. While the weight of water loss can be regained by re-hydration, the calories consumed will not be. Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes which are trapped in pockets below the skin. 
Skin Care - Profuse sweating achieved carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells leaving the skin immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws the skin's own natural oils and nutrients to the surface.

Reduces Stress and Fatigue
-  A FIR heat relaxes muscles, circulates blood, stimulates the heart and releases endorphins, providing a feeling of invigoration and well being.

Detoxify Your Body - The deep penetrating infrared heat causes chemicals such as potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, pesticides, PCB's, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, ammonia, uric acid, cholesterol and fat-soluble chemicals to be released from the fat cells and tissues into the lymph fluid.
