Infared Blanket

Regular use of an Infared Heat/Sauna Blanket may be effective as an adjunct to methods such as regular exercise for cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories. An infared sauna induces relaxation and a feeling of well-being in a person that can have significant psychological as well as physiological benefits. Infared/Sauna Blankets can aid in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in a substantial caloric loss. You can burn up to 600 calories in just one hour.

Infared Heat increases heart rate and blood circulation, both of which are crucial to maintaining one’s health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin without heightening blood pressure. The increased blood helps aching or injured muscles recover faster, speeds the purge of toxic waste from the body, through skin perspiration. The skin is often known as the third kidney, because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating up to 30% of body waste.

Having a  sauna heat treatment before a massage also helps prepare the user by creating an overall relaxing effect. It loosens the muscle tissue so the therapist can do a more thorough and effective massage.

For a healthy ‘glow’, heat therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone and texture

Heat has a positive effect on the immune system by creating an “artificial fever”. Often misunderstood, fever is a natural healing response of the body. The function of the immune system is increased naturally during a fever, while virus and bacterial growth is slowed, weakening its hold. This helps the body ward off invading organisms. A heat treatment in the early stages of a cold or flu has been known to prevent or even stop the progression of the disease before the symptoms occur. And even further studies into the benefits of  heat therapy is creating a new avenue of hope for those suffering from life threatening diseases such as cancer, which explains why the majority of  Sauna heat clientele base is affiliated with the medical industry.

Infared treatments are very popular in the medical and holistic communities and are used for medical treatments by doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, trainers, fitness enthusiasts, and massage therapists for arthritis, joint pain, stiff muscles, and injuries to tendons and ligaments to promote weight loss, and a faster self-healing effect by the body.

According to naturopathic physician Dr. Tsu-Tsair Chi, in his summation on the mechanism of actions of infrared devices tuned to the human body, tissues needing a boost in their output selectively absorb these rays. The internal production of the infrared energy that normally occurs within our tissues is associated with a variety of healing responses and may require a boost to a maximal level to ensure the fullest healing response possible in a tissue, which is being repaired. After boosting a tissue’s level to its maximum, the remaining rays pass onward harmlessly. This phenomenon is called “resonant absorption.”

More About Infared Heat

Unlike visible light, infared rays can deeply penetrate skin and the underlying tissues (over 1 1/2″). Infrared rays naturally generate heat by causing the body’s molecules to rapidly vibrate against each other. When infared rays penetrate the skin, they come into contact with protein, collagen and fats. By stimulating micro-vibrations infrared causes a thermal reaction which elevates tissue temperatures. The human body then reacts by dilating all the blood vessels regardless of size. Tissues are revitalized because of the improved (micro & macro) circulation.

One of the main principles of traditional Chinese medicine is that good blood circulation promotes good health. Conversely, an obstructed blood flow will increase the likelihood of disease and pain. Other ancient Asian therapies such as the Japanese “Palm Therapy” and China’s “Qi Gong Therapy” are also based on the premise that the human body itself, is capable of radiating Infrared rays.

Infared therapy has proven to be effective because its “hot rays” exhibit analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic capabilities.
