Infrared Science

FIR... FAR... What does all this mean?

Let's start with 2 basics:
  • I - Infrared
    A type of radiant energy.  It has an electromagnetic radiation measured in a wavelength
  • R - Radiation
    The term radiation, when used in healing can be confusing and cause insecurity regarding safety of the treatment.  When you speak of 'healing', think of radiation as the healing rays from the sun.
Put the 2 together, you get:
  • IR - Infrared Radiation
    This is the healing Infrared Radiation provides infrared radiant energy.
    How deep the infrared energy penetrates depends on the type of wavelength  the product provides and how consistent and can maintain  the wavelength.
The healing Infrared Radiation Wavelengths are measured in microns or nanometres:
  • V - Visible Light (the sunlight you can see)
  • N - Near
  • M - Medium
  • F - Far
Put them together:
  • FIR - Far Infrared Radiation

What is Infrared Light?

Infrared Light is the light from the Sun.  It is the type of light you cannot see.

What is Infrared Energy?

Infrared Energy is measured 

What kind of Infrared Light Therapy is best?

What is Infrared Heat?

Infrared Heat is the therapeutic warmth you feel from the Infrared Energy or Light of the sun.

What is Heat Therapy?

Research shows, high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells.  The Medical world calls it Hyperthermia.

Planck's Law of Black Body Radiation?

Nobel Prize Winner Max Plank; Planck's Law of Black Body Radiation. The higher the temperature the greater the amount of infrared wavelength. Far Infrared Rays in the 4 - 14 micron range would be most easy for the human body to absorb.

Relax Infrared - Why is it Special?

FAR Infrared ceramic semiconductor.  It excludes both near and medium infrared rays that are harmful to the human body, leaving behind only beneficial FIR. The cheap saunas and wooden saunas use radiant heat.

Why a Relax Sauna with Infrared Light?

Relax FAR Infrared Sauna is predominant among products.  It is due to the patented ceramic infrared heater.  The best of all infrared saunas I have seen.

To avoid the sun’s damaging UV rays, people are embracing modern technology, which allows them to benefit from the positive effects of sunlight.  The FAR Infrared Sauna is predominant among products rapidly gaining popularity, due to the patented ceramic infrared heater.

Infrared with longest radiation wavelength
provides the most healing.

What is Infrared Light?

Infrared Light is the type of light from the sun you cannot see.  The light spectrum consists of different light ray types.  Gamma Ray, X-Ray, Ultra Violet, Visible Light, Infrared, FAR Infrared, Microwave, and Electric Waves.  

Infrared energy is never a visible light.  The purest form of infrared light is FAR Infrared because it is the wavelength that is absorbed by the human body and promotes cellular health.

What is FAR Infrared Energy?

FAR Infrared energy is the part of sunlight we experience as heat.  FAR Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible energy spectrum.  The power of this light is proven to greatly benefit the human body, and health practitioner are increasingly becoming aware of the many healing advantages of infrared heat therapy.

This infrared light energy is essential for human beings and all living things in the world.  When FAR Infrared light penetrates through skin to the deeper tissues and muscle, it transforms from light energy into heat energy.

The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissue cause blood vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat produced helps to get rid of toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.         

X-Rays, Ultra Violet, Visible Light, Infrared, Microwaves are natural energy with distinctive wavelengths.  For instance, the wavelength from 0.4 ~ 0.76 microns are visible light.  The wavelength 0.76 ~ 1000 microns are Infrared Ray.  The border between Near Infrared and FAR Infrared is 4 microns. 

Humans cannot see FAR Infrared Rays but all objects such as Sunlight, Plants, Rocks, Furniture, Paper, Books, have FAR Infrared Rays.  Any object with temperature contains FAR Infrared Rays.  Every object in the world has a temperature and therefore has thermal energy and emits a distinctive wavelength.  Night vision cameras measure thermal, infrared energy.

Infrared Light is the type of light you can't see.  It is the light from the sun.

The light spectrum consists of X-Ray, Ultra Violet, Visible Light, Infrared, FAR Infrared, Microwave, and Electric Waves.  Infrared energy is never a visible light.  The purest form of infrared light is FAR Infrared because it is the wavelength that is absorbed by the human body and promotes cellular health.

What is Infrared Heat Therapy?

In the medical world, it is called Hyperthermia (many may have heard it called Thermal Therapy or Thermotherapy).  It is used as a type of Cancer treatment.  The body is exposed to high temperatures up to 45oC (113oF).  Research shows, high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells.  What about the normal cells, you ask?  There is usually minimal injury to normal cells. 

Think of how your body gets a fever to kill a virus or bacteria.  By killing cancer cells and the damaging cancer proteins, along with the structures within the cells.  Hyperthermia may shrink cancer tumours.

Clinical trials using Hyperthermia (research with people) are being done.  It is not widely available.  Clinical trials will include Hyperthermia along with radiation and chemotherapy.  It is being tested with many types of cancer, such as breast, lung, liver, bladder, brain, neck, appendix and others.  Many of these studies, but not all, show the tumour reducing in size when Hyperthermia is used in combination with other treatments.  National Cancer Institute

Some of the medical community have combined Relax FAR Infrared Saunas and Relax Sky-Eye Lamp within their practice when treating cancer patients. 

Hyperthermia treatments do show promise.  The heat from an Infrared Sauna or Sky-Eye Lamp, while receiving IV therapy, or using a Relax FAR Infrared Sauna at home have helped patients relax and recover from standard cancer treatments.

Why Use a Relax Sauna with Infrared Light?

To avoid the sun’s damaging UV rays, people are embracing modern technology, which allows them to benefit from the positive effects of sunlight.  The FAR Infrared Sauna is predominant among products rapidly gaining popularity, due to the patented ceramic infrared heater. 

These saunas are becoming increasingly common because of the recognized benefit of FAR Infrared Rays. Internationally, FAR Infrared thermal energy is fast becoming accepted as a form of natural energy medicine.  The metabolic rate is an indicator of one’s health.  FAR Infrared Rays help to increase the metabolism by increasing the circulation of nutrient rich, oxygenated blood.  Increased circulation also helps remove the waste materials and increase energy levels.

The most basic and crucial difference between the FAR infrared rays (FIR) and harmful rays is that virtually all living things have the need for FIR – warming energy.  And all life that metabolizes, releases FIR.  The sun’s rays include FIR that is needed by all living things but its rays also contain the harmful X-Rays, UV Rays and near Infrared Rays.
